Baccarat is a premier game at casinos. You are able to play either ‘Big”, Midi, or Mini baccarat. The bigger tables may only be found in the high limit areas of most casinos while mini baccarat is found everywhere else. The limits to the games vary, but generally speaking, the bigger the table the higher the limits.
Baccarat is played with cards and players have a choice of betting on either the banker or player hand winning a particular draw. There is also a side bet for ‘tie’ hands that pays 8 to 1. The house edge on baccarat is one of the smallest you shall find on any game of chance. It is so miniscule that the house actually charges 5% commission on winning banker hands, for the banker has a slight advantage over player hands. So what is a gambler to do? Is there a strategy to improve your odds at this classic game?
Realistically, baccarat is a game of pure luck. It is just like roulette, a game of extreme chance. The difference between roulette and baccarats is one is played with a wheel and is straightforward, while the other is played with several decks of cards and has many rules attached to it.
The banker hand is favored to win overall in the life of a shoe, just keep in mind that each winning hand on the bank you shall pay 5% commission on it. Never bet on the tie, this is where the house makes most of their money. If the banker or player wins, this bet looses, as opposed to if the hands tie, your bet stands until the next drawing. Although prior events are not indicative of the future, betting on a streak of either banker or player hands is as good a strategy as you shall find.
