Online Baccarat Tips

Baccarat is a very easy game to play and understand. Strategies and system for Baccarat are not used like with other casino games. You only must have an understanding of the game and the rules in order to be successful at Baccarat. But there are some tips that you can follow to be more confident when playing Baccarat.

Here are some Baccarat tips that can help you out on the table.

- Generally there are 8 decks of cards in Baccarat. But you have a better chance of winning, mainly betting on the Dealer's hand, if you find a Baccarat game using less decks.
- There are three Baccarat betting options that are betting on the Dealer's Hand, the Player's Hand, or the Tie.
- The Tie hand does not happen often but the payout is the highest.
- The Tie bet in Baccarat is rare and hose odds are around 14%. Therefore if you bet on the Tie Hand and it hits you will have to pay 14% of your winnings to the house.
- The House edge for the Dealer's bet is 1.06% and the casinos will charge you 5% of the winnings of your hand. But even though this is the case you will do better by betting on the dealer's hand.
- The house edge for the player's hand is at 1.24%. Therefore you pay a certain percentage of your winnings from the hand of the player to the casino.
- There is no pattern that is set for the outcome of any hand in Baccarat. Baccarat is a game of chance and there is no eventual bet that will change the outcome of the next hand.
- You should fully understand the rules of Baccarat so if there are any mistakes made by either the dealer or player.
- The dealer will burn the amount of cards that appear on the face up card that is on the table.

- The Player Hand will get the 1st and 3rd cards deal and the Dealer Hand will get the 2nd and 4th cards dealt.
- If the hand is two digits you will take the last digit of the tow cards added together and that will be the point total. Therefore if you have a 9 and a 6, the total is 15 and the point total is 5.
- If the total of the first 2 cards is 8 or 9 the hand that has that, either the Player or Dealer, wins automatically as it is a natural hand. This can become a tie only if the two hands are the same.
- Only a natural 9 can beat a natural 8 hand.
- If you bet on a hand that has less than 6 or 7 you have to take another card.
- The Dealer will always have to draw a card on a total of 0-2. With a 3 the Dealer will have to draw a card but only if the Player draws an 8. If the Player's card is an 8, 9 or Ace the Dealer can draw a card on a card total of 4.
- A 3rd card between 3 and 7 with the Player helps the Dealer draw on a total of 5. The Dealer will stand on a total of 6 of the Player has a 3rd card that is either only a 6 or 7.
- The Dealer always must stand when they have a 7.

Baccarat is a game whereby the croupier gathers in money with a flexible sculling oar, then rakes it home. If I could have borrowed his oar I would have stayed. ~ Mark Twain
