How to play baccarat with a winning strategy?
In the game of baccarat you got 3 main choices to place your bets on.
You can place a bet on the player (meaning that you are predicting that the player’s cards win)
You can place a bet on the Banker (meaning that you are predicting that the bankers cards win)
And you can place a bet on tie (meaning that you are predicting that both the player and the bankers cards will end up being the same value)
Baccarat is like blackjack, in blackjack the rules are (player VS house) who ever gets the closest to (but not over) 21 wins. In baccarat who ever gets the closest to 9 wins. (9 also referred to as “natural 9″(2 cards totaling 9) will always be the winning hand.
The main difference between blackjack and baccarat is the players input.
In blackjack you get to decide if you want/need another card to add to your total, in baccarat the dealer follows a fixed set of rules to draw cards.
Also its you vs the house just like in blackjack but you can bet on both sides (player &/or banker)
If you bet on player, and player wins the payout will be 1 tot 1. (if your bet = $10 you will receive $20)
If you bet on banker, and banker wins the payout will be 1 tot 1 (-5%). This is because there are some complicated special rules that favor banker winning by a very small percentage.
