There are many winning strategies of baccarat circulated among players, but no matter which strategy you want to adopt, you must first understand what the game of “baccarat” is playing and what its essence is. The following Jin Dafa The 6 concepts introduced by the editor of the entertainment city are what players must know first, otherwise, no matter how powerful the strategy you use, it will be useless!
Baccarat mental concept:
1. Watch the road, play the cable, do not touch if you are not familiar with it
If you cannot understand the impact of each card on the baccarat result, these big roads and small roads will have very limited effects on you. The result of layman players following the road is that they often get lost.
2. Baccarat can also count cards
The blackjack counting method is to set the value of each card that appears, and if the sum is favorable to the player, then enter the field and increase the bet. The same method is also established in baccarat. To put it simply, through the conversion of the drawing rules, the number around 4 in baccarat has a greater impact on the winning result. After calculation, the weighted value of 4 is +3, 3 is +2, A and 2 are +1, 5 and 6 and 7 are both -2, 8 is -1, 9 and 0 are 0, when the value of the card on the table is larger, it means that the more small cards are played, the more beneficial to the banker, on the contrary, the larger the negative value is, the more negative it is. The more idle the better.
3. Baccarat is the game with the lowest house edge
The house advantage (the amount that can be recovered for every 1 yuan bet, and then subtract the expected value of recovery from 1) is the part where the casino’s winning rate is higher than that of the gambler.
4. The probability of opening a banker is inherently higher than that of an idler
Many new players will have a question, why does Baccarat not charge for betting the player but 5% for betting the banker? That way it’s all good to relax. But! Photo is also the first mistake many novice players make.
In fact, Baccarat has different winning rules due to the different rules of the banker and the player. After calculation, the probability of winning the banker with the 8 decks of cards used by the casino is 45.86%, and the probability of winning the player is 44.62%. The most important thing is the probability of a draw, but baccarat will not kill all draws, so in fact the probability of winning the banker is more than 50%, and only through 5% rake can it be lowered to below 50%. The main purpose of this 5% rake is to balance the expectations between the dealer and leisure.
5. Hit, pair, don’t touch
Baccarat’s winning cards and pairs are not commensurate with the odds. In fact, the probability of winning cards is 9.51%. After restoring the odds of 1:8, the expected value is only 85.56%. The house advantage of a tie is as high as 14.44%, the house advantage of pressing a pair is 12.15%, and the house advantage of baccarat is 1.2%, so pressing a tie or pressing a pair at the same time means that you will lose the betting amount of 10% first. % above bets.
Top 10 Baccarat Strategies
1. The 3 2 System
This system bases its strategy on placing 5 chips of equal value split across 2 different bets. For Baccarat, the split is between either the Banker and Banker Pair bets or the Player and Player Pair bets. Once decided, follow this sequence:
- Place 3 chips on Banker/Player
- Place the remaining 2 chips on Banker Pair/Player Pair
- Repeat after each round and adjust chip values according to your budget
This strategy can be altered to alter between Player and Banker at different intervals of rounds or mix and match with Banker/Player and Banker Pair/Player Pair.
2. Side with the Banker
Statistically, the Banker has a slightly higher chance of winning on any given round and awards a payout of 0.95:1 as opposed to the Player which awards 1:1. This strategy is pretty simple; bet on the Banker on every round. Despite the slight advantage over the Player space, there is no guarantee the Banker will win so stick to it for multiple rounds to maximise this strategy.
3. The 1 3 2 6 System
This strategy follows a similar setup as the Fibonacci but increases the number of chips in play rather than the base bet value. Essentially, you set a chip size that becomes your base bet, and, after every winning round, you follow the pattern and add chips accordingly. The sequence goes 1,3,2,6 before resetting after 6 if another win is achieved.
As an example:
You set your base bet at £1
- Stage 1 is played at 1 chip of £1 and if that wins you move onto stage 2
- Stage 2 is played with 3 chips at £1 for a total of £3 and if that wins you move onto stage 3
- Stage 3 is played with 2 chips at £1 for a total of £2 with a win moving onto stage 4
- Stage 4 is played with 6 chips at £1 for a total of £6 with a win resetting the sequence back to stage 1
All bets played on this strategy should be focused on Player/Banker bets as they have the highest likelihood of winning over the riskier Tie or Player/Banker Pair bets.
4. The James Bond
It’s the secret agent’s favourite game and it would only be appropriate for there to be a strategy centered around the man who enjoys his martini shaken. You play each round at £200 and split it across 3 bets of:
- £140 on a number Banker
- £50 on a number Player
- The other £10 on Tie
The James Bond strategy can be heavily modified so the values can be higher or lower depending on your budget. Set yourself a strict limit and don’t spend more than you would be comfortable with; as long as the values can be split similar to the above format.
5. The Mix Up
Does what it says on the tin. This is a super flexible strategy with only one rule; don’t stick to just one bet type. Set yourself rules on the number of identical bets you plan to make and then, once you’ve hit that limit, alternate to a different bet until you’ve covered all 5 available bets. Once you’ve reached the end of the cycle, simply repeat. This allows you to get a chance with every bet type and never miss out on those all-important winning bets.
6. The Baccarat Martingale
The Martingale is one of the most popular casino strategies worldwide and follows one all-important rule; every time you lose a round you double your bet value. The idea behind this strategy is that, when you win, it will offset the value of the lost rounds. Set yourself a betting style and stick to it religiously to follow this strategy. Upgrade the strategy by applying flexible min and max bet limits and keep within those limits to keep it manageable.
7. The Reverse Martingale
The Reverse Martingale is, as expected, very similar to the Martingale but with one distinct difference. Whenever you win a round, you double your bet value and decrease it on any losing round. Instead of using wins to offset losing values, the Reverse Martingale focuses on limiting the amount lost through lowering bets on losing rounds to limit the amount lost on each round.
8. Side with the Player
A similar strategy to Side with the Banker but you place bets exclusively on the Player space. The Player has close to the same chance of winning as the Banker and pays a slightly higher amount at 1:1. There’s no guarantee of the Player winning on a given round so stick to it and alternate your bet values based on your limits.
9. Baccarat Fibonacci
Originally a strategy employed for Roulette, the Fibonacci can be modified to work with Baccarat. The strategy primarily focuses on Banker bets and follows a sequence of betting values on each round. Set yourself a minimum bet value and, whenever you win, move one step one the sequence. If you lose a round, return to the first step of the sequence and start again. The sequence to follow is:
1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 – 21 – 34 – 55 – 89 – 144 – 233 – 377 – 610 – 987
As an example:
- You set a limit of £1 as your minimum bet
- The sequence would go £1-£1-£2-£3-£5-£8 etc.
- If you lose, start again with a £1 bet and repeat the sequence until the next losing hand
10. Focus on Pair Bets
The Pair bets have the highest potential return on your initial bet with a payout of 11:1. This strategy focuses on making bets exclusively on Player Pair or Banker Pair bets to win. For every win, you will win 11x your bet value with each win offsetting the potential losses from non-winning rounds. Stick to one type of bet or alternate between them to spice up the action.
