Baccarat Strategy: Minimizing the Casino Edge

Because Baccarat is a game of chance, their is no winning baccarat system. So, if someone is telling you otherwise, don’t believe them, they are not telling the truth.
The reason therefore is that the house always has an edge in baccarat, no matter what bet you are taking. But, you can minimize this edge by taking only bets in which the house has the lowest edge possible.

The following odds apply to the game of Baccarat:

  • Betting on the Bank wins 45.86% of the times, giving the house an edge of 1.06% using a 5% commission.
  • Betting on the Player wins 44.62% of the times, giving the house an edge of 1.24%.
  • Betting on Tie wins 9.52% of the times, giving the house an edge of 14.36% when using 8 to 1 payouts. Should the payout be at 9 to 1, which happens at some casinos, the house edge is 4.8%.
