Tips For Baccarat

Unlike blackjack and a few other select casino games, baccarat has little strategy. It is a pure game of chance; which means you can win in the short term but will lose in the long term. To help you win here are a few baccarat tips that will help you beat the odds.

  • Banker bets have the best odds to win. If you always bet on banker you should win 44.6% of your bets on average.
  • Never bet on a tie, this bet has the worst odds at the table. At 8-1 the Tie bets are 14% in favor of the casino. Some casinos offer 9-1 but even at those odds the casino has a huge advantage.
  • Don’t waste your money on any baccarat betting system. Simple math shows us that these systems will fail every time.
  • If you play baccarat at a land based casino and bet on banker make sure you have enough money to pay the casino the 5% commission on banker bets. Remember you don’t pay this fee until you leave the table.
  • Baccarat is a game of chance so the best way to win is to walk away when you’re ahead. If you continue to play when you’re up you will eventually end up in the red. The casinos want you to play as long as possible because they know that if you stay you will lose in the end.
  • Practice before you play for real money. One of the nice things about online casinos is that you can try the games out before you play for real money.
  • Don't drink and gamble as alcohol will impair your judgment.
