I’m here to show you on how to profit when playing baccarat. Baccarat is a game played using 6 or 8 decks of cards, and in order to play well at the game, you need to know the probability on a hand dealt from a full shoe of 6 or 8 decks:
Using 6 decks of cards, the banker can win 0.46, the player can win 0.45, and a tie of 0.09
Using 8 decks of cards, the banker can win 0.46, the player can win 0.44, and a tie of 0.10
Everytime the banker wins, commission will be taken from them (normally 4% or 5%) and payout on tie bets (8:1 or 9:1). This concludes the following casino advantages:
When playing a 6 deck shoe, a commission of 5% the advantage on a banker bet is exactly 1.056%. With a commission of 4%, the advantage then drops to 0.6%. On a player, the bet is 1.24%, and on a tie bet with 8:1 odds it is 14.93% and on 9:1 odds it is 14.43%. The advantage that I mentioned is around the same when playing with an 8 deck.
there is no point counting the cards as the dealer will shuffle on each play. There is also not much strategy around as the game follows a number of automatic rules. Here are several tips and strategies that you can use:
Common Sense Strategy
Never ever bet on a tie. The odds are tipped in the house’s favor. In the end, the bank will still win, so it will be much better to place a bet on the banker’s hand. You will still have the odds in your favor even after paying the commission. So, placing a bet with the bank will be right choice. You will do well to pick games that use the 6 deck shoe, and also a 4% commission. Though it will be slightly boring, but this will work and you will certainly win.
Play and Loss Management
I know that you know the best bet, but you have really no clue on how much to bet. This is especially important fore Baccarat Gambling; you must have self-control over your bets.
Too many times, amateur gamblers wager more than they can afford to lose. Do not be like them. Instead implement the simple rules below:
1. You MUST decide on the amount you are willing to lose before you start playing Baccarat in the casino. Note it down and stick to it in any situation, because that is your limit.
2. Budget the money that you decide to use and divide the amount equally for each round of play.
3. Whenever you win, allocate a percentage to the opposite pocket. Leave it there and do not use it while you are playing in the casino. An experienced player will always put ALL of the winnings out of play.
With these rules, winning at baccarat will be much easier.
