Baccarat Overview

Baccarat is the most common card game that can be found in almost every casino. The name originated from Italian “baccarat”, which means “zero” in English. It spread to France during the 15th century, and was widely spread to England and other countries. Nowadays, baccarat has been one of the most popular casino games globally.

In short, baccarat is a game that you have to bet on either “Player” or “Banker.” There’s no limit to the number of players, even the players who don’t have a seat can join the game. Basically, you’re actually betting against the probability.

Normally, 8 decks of poker will be used in baccarat. After the dealer shuffles, the first and the third cards will be dealt to “Player,” while the second and the fourth cards will be dealt to “Banker.” According to the basic rules of baccarat, 3 cards to each will be the maximum.

The one whose total points being closest to 9 wins the game, and the suit doesn’t matter in baccarat.

How to play baccarat?

In baccarat rules, 10 J Q K are counted as 0 points, and the A is counted as 1 point. Normally, the game will end when the second card of one side is dealt, but the third card can possibly be dealt if it’s necessary. The total point which is closest to 9 wins the game, and the winners can receive the same value as their stakes.

However, every time when you bet on “Banker” and win, your winnings will be taken 5% of the total. If the points of “Player” and “Banker” are the same, it’s called “Tie” and players who bet on it win 8X of their stakes. Those who bet on “Banker” and “Player” won’t either lose or win the money.

When the total points of “Player” are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and the final card is 6 or 7, one more card has to be dealt to “Player.” When the total points are 6, 7, 8, 9, and the card shall be stopped dealing. When the total points of “Banker” are 0, 1 or 2, the next card then has to be dealt.

When the total points are over 9, we will only take the digit number into counting. For example, one side gets “ A,2,9 ” and the total points are 13, then the actual points are 3. The maximum score(points) of baccarat is 9, while the minimum score (point) is 0 point.

Baccarat Betting Tips

Martingale Betting system

The “Martingale betting systems” comes from the gambling theory, which is usually used by experienced players in baccarat. The main idea is not to add the stake when you win, but add it up to 2X when you lose. Don’t stop doing this until you win, and then you can place the original amount of stake.

For example, If your original stake is ₹100, you keep placing ₹100 every time when you win. By the time you lose, you put ₹200 as your stake instead. If you soon win the very next game, you shall put your stake back to ₹100.

1-3-2-6 Betting system

The 1-3-2-6 betting system is more interesting than other systems. Player bets 1 unit on the first round, if he wins and the next round he bets 3 units. If he keeps winning to the 3rd round, he bets 2 units, and then bets 6 units on the 4th round. If he loses, his stake shall be back to 1 unit.

The goal of 1-3-2-6 betting system in baccarat is to allow the player to collect a large number of winnings, and not losing too much money when he loses. In other words, 1-3-2-6 system is a relatively stable baccarat betting tip with lower risk. However, you have to focus on keeping the stake with 12 units, so it might take you longer to stay in the baccarat game.

Also, it is better to bet on “Player” when using 1-3-2-6 betting system, while you might be taken 5% of winnings and the total winnings will be a little bit lower.

Paroli Betting System

Paroli betting system is a multiple stakes betting method in baccarat. When you win a round, then you have to double your stake for the next round. If you lose, then you have to put your stake back to the original amount.

For example, you bet ₹100 at the beginning of baccarat and win, you have to bet ₹200 on the next round, then ₹400 for the next, and go on and on. Once you lose, your stake would be back to ₹100.

Because we use the concept of the multiple method, it is proper to use it to bet on “Banker” or “Player” instead of “Tie.” The biggest goal of the Paroli betting system is to stop you from losing too much money when you’re in bad luck. However, if you have already won for 5 to 6 rounds, you have to limit your stake as well to prevent losing too much in the next round.

Parlay Betting System

The main goal of the Parlay betting system in baccarat is to increase the betting ratio of players. If you win in the first round, you have to double your stake for the next round. The Parlay betting system is basically the same as the Paroli betting system. The only difference is that the amount of original stake is specified in the Parlay betting system.

Both Paroli and Parlay betting systems in baccarat are relatively higher risk, so there’s a chance for you to lose more money when the goddess of victory is not beside you. Therefore, our suggestion will be:when you have already won too many rounds continuously, just leave the baccarat table and take a break.
