JackpotCity Baccarat Fundamentals

In every round of Baccarat there are 2 hands of cards dealt: The Punto, or Player, hand and the Banco, or Banker, hand. These don’t actually refer to hands that are given to you and the Dealer, but just 2 sets of cards that are compared against each other in the game.

You’ll be able to bet on all outcomes; on either of the hands beating the other with a higher total, or on the hands tying. If the Player or Banker hand that you backed wins you’ll get paid out 1:1. The payout for a tie is much higher, at 8:1, but the house edge stands at 14.1%. It should also be noted that, in a Banker hand win, the payout is less 5% for commission.

The face cards in this game are all worth 1, the number cards carry the value that they display and the aces are all worth 1. To determine the hand totals, the 2 cards are added together and the 10 is dropped. So, for example, a hand of 7 and 2 is worth 9, while a card pair of 9 and 4 is worth 3 rather than 13. The first set has lower numbers that the second, but it has the higher value.

This means that the highest hand possible is 9, which is called a Natural. If the total of the first 2 Player cards is 6 or 7 it will stand, which if it is lower another card is dealt. There are also rules on when the Banker hand gets another card, but these are a little more complex and involved. Luckily, at JackpotCity you never need to remember these. It’s always the responsibility of the house or dealer, and the software works out the calculations automatically. The only thing you need to focus on is your Baccarat game; enjoying yourself and developing your strategy.

Baccarat Strategy Development

Baccarat is essentially a game of chance, so most of your tactical decisions will be based on the bets you place rather than the moves you make. Most seasoned experts also recommend that you factor this element of chance into your game plan as well, since it is a reality of the game and one of the things that makes playing it so exciting.

A very basic rule of thumb is to never bet on a tie, unless you are very happy to lose the money that you wager. The rush that you will experience if you win on such a stake is unparalleled, but the chances of this happening are rare enough to mean that you shouldn’t expect it at all.

Aside from the tie bets, Baccarat is among the casino games with a low house edge, so it’s well worth playing and taking advantage of this. Martingale betting strategies are a good way to build the element of chance into your wagers, and involve doubling your stake when you lose and halving it when you win. This may seem strange at first, but it means that you will ultimately recoup whatever you have lost when your losing streak inevitably ends and you win again.
