Tips for Baccarat Players
In my opinion baccarat is one of the easiest card games and has one of the lowest house edges.
It’s purely a game of chance with no complex strategies or systems for you to master. There are only three different betting options:
- I suggest that you bet on the ‘banker’ hand as it’s the safest bet with the house edge close to 1%. The chances of betting on the winning hand of the ‘banker’ are slightly higher than betting on the ‘player’ winning. The ‘banker’ hand pays even money, however, there’s typically a house commission of 5%.
- A bet on the ‘player’ hand always has a slightly higher house edge, usually around 1.25%. The ‘player’ hand also pays even money and there is no house commission on a winning bet.
- The final betting option is the ‘tie’ bet which is notoriously a bad bet. The chance of a tie is very remote with a house edge of nearly 5% which is very high by any standards. Its attractiveness lies in the fact that a tie pays 8 to 1. But avoid it like the plague!
