A Baccarat strategy is considered a hoax among players. While it is sometimes said that the ‘perfect’ strategy has been found, Baccarat is fundamentally a game of luck, and there is relatively little the player can do strategically to improve their chances.
However, that doesn’t mean there’s no reason to think about the game. There are indeed several things to remember when playing Baccarat that will help you make the right decision and play smarter; and consequently increase your chances of success.
If you want to become a better player, consider the following questions and their answers:
Is it possible to identify a pattern of rules or is it just utopia?
Use the board! Without any doubts you will see other players make use of a pencil and a graph, provided by the same casinos, on which to take into account previous hands and try to identify some structure. Normally, if you think there is a structure, the bets will change according to the hypothetical winning streak. This is obviously wrong and illogical. Casinos encourage this attitude because they know they have no control over the game. In Baccarat, as in many other games, no hand can affect the next, and although you will notice many other players updating their scoreboard, you should not pay any attention to it. After all, do you really think that casinos would provide each player with a tool that would help them win more money? Honestly we’re not so sure !!
What types of games does the player prefer?
There are various types of Baccara some tables use different deck numbers. You can maximize your win by playing with a single deck, which offers the best mathematical payout (about 1% of the house edge) for the bunker bet, which is the best profit of any other form of Baccarat.
What’s the best bet?
The house edge on a bet is only 1.17%, while the player’s edge is slightly higher, around 1.35%. So it’s easy to understand what the appeal of the game is. However, it must be said that most casinos charge a 5% commission on winnings. This also shows which outcome is more likely and therefore which bet is the best.
Should I Bet on a Tie?
This strategy is not recommended by any expert in the world of this game. In fact, betting on a draw almost never leads to a win. The odds of winning are in fact given 8 to 1, which makes this option very attractive for those looking for a big and quick win and who play more at random than with logical and mathematical deduction. If you choose to bet on a tie, then don’t expect to win very often. And if despite this you choose to bet on a tie and win… congratulations!
