I’m here to show you on how to profit when playing baccarat. Baccarat is played using 6 or 8 decks of cards, and I will show you the odds 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 is 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.
Don’t bother to count the cards because the banker will shuffle on each play. There is also not much strategy around since the game follows numerous automatic rules. I will list a few guidelines and tactics that you can use:
Common Sense Strategy
Don’t ever bet on a tie. The odds are overly popular in the house’s favor. In the end, the bank will still win, so it will be much wiser 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 a better choice. You will do better to choose games that use the 6 deck shoe, and also a 4% commission. Though it will get rather boring, but this will get you better results and you will certainly win.
Play and Loss Management
I know that you know the best bet, but you have really no idea on how much to bet. This is most vital in Baccarat Gambling; you must have self-control over your bets.
So many times, players wager more than they can afford to lose. Do not be like them. Instead follow the three simple rules below:
1. You MUST decide on the amount you are going to lose before you start playing Baccarat in the casino. Write it down and stick to it in any circumstance, because that is your limit.
2. Budget the money that you decide to use and allocate the amount equally for each round of play.
3. Every time you win, allocate a certain percentage to the opposite pocket. Leave it there and don’t use it in any situation. An experienced gambler will always put ALL of the winnings out of play.
Winning at baccarat gambling is very easy if you follow the above guidelines – good luck!
