Before casinos went online, only the elite were able to enjoy the thrills of high stakes card tables, roulette, or even slots games. And the most elite game in the casino? It was Baccarat – the game for the jet set, casino royalty, and the real high rollers.
- When in doubt, bet on the player. Remember that choosing the banker’s hand brings a slightly smaller return because if you win, you pay a 5% royalty to the house.
- The Tie bet pays out the most. Although the tie is the least likely outcome, it’s worth the risk now and then to bet on a tie because the 8: 1 payout is so high.
- Play many hands. The game is quick and fun, so it’s hard to avoid playing again and again. But the benefit to playing many hands in one session is a better sense of the game’s rhythm, and a better feel for how to bet.
There is, of course, no way to guarantee that you’ll walk away a winner with any game of chance. But Baccarat, more than other games, relies on intuition as much as luck. The more information you feed your inner senses, the more they can put things together to give you the best chance possible.
And remember, the most important thing is to have fun. If you’re having a good time playing, the wins will take care of themselves. If you’re not having fun, you’re probably not winning, so it may be time to stop betting.
