The institutions can change the classic rules of baccarat – to introduce additional side bets, increase or decrease the payout. Among the varieties in online casinos are often found modifications that have differences from the classic version:
- Mini baccarat (mini punto) – there are no additional bets, one deck of 52 sheets is used.
- Super 6 or Punto 2000 – betting on the dealer is paid without deduction of 5% commission, but if the dealer has 6 points, the payment of 0.5 to 1 is used.
- Dragon 7 – Betting on the banker pays x50 if the dealer has 7 points on three cards.
- Panda 8 – A multiplier of x25 applies if the banker scores 8 points on three cards and the user guesses the outcome.
There is no win-win strategy, as the casino has a default advantage over the player. However, using different techniques, you can minimize the advantage of the institution, and in the case of good luck to stay in the black. The main condition – never bet on a draw, which is due to the low probability of such an outcome.
The lower the advantage of the institution, the higher the chances of the gambler to win. Thus, betting on the banker is most profitable, but it is necessary to take into account the 5% commission charged on the payout in case of a win.
To increase the likelihood of profit, systems of progressive raises are used:
- Doubling up after losing – By losing, the gambler bets twice as much. By winning after doubling, the user makes up for previous losses. The disadvantage of this strategy is that in most cases, the casino maximum bet is only 100 times higher than the minimum, ie impossible to double the minimum limit of more than 7 times.
- Doubling up after winning – the bet is increased after winning. A new deal uses the chips from the payout. If you lose, the gambler goes back to the minimum limit again. In the case of three or four wins in a row, the user receives a substantial sum, investing a minimum of money.
No raises with a constant choice of one bet. The system is justified in varieties Dragon 7 and Panda 8, where high odds are in effect.
Before the game for real money should memorize or write down the steps of the raises, if the gambler chooses this strategy. To try out the effectiveness of any technique can be in a free demo, as most developers provide baccarat introductory mode. In the case of live tables, the casino customer can only join the broadcast and watch the process for a while, but the game for free chips in this format is not available.
