Online Baccarat Strategy Guide

Online baccarat strategy guide

Like any game, there is an element of luck. But you can’t rely on luck alone to win at Baccarat. There are certain strategic tips to follow in order to swing the luck in your favour.

The casino edge plays a big role in the kinds of bets you will make. If you bet on a player, then your odds are 1:1. This means that the casino edge is 1.34% in this case.

Betting on the banker allows you to win bigger, but a 5% “brokerage” is paid back to the casino. In other words, if you win $100, you give back $5 and you’re left with $95. This is all paid at the end of the game. The casino edge, however, is 1.17% in this case. With such odds, one would assume that the banker has a good advantage.


All “brokerage” payouts are put in a special box with your table number. This ensures that the game stays fair. Betting on a tie provides very favourable odds because if you win, you are paid out 8:1. However, you should be made aware of the fact that the casino edge in this case is 14.1%. In other words, only bet on the tie if you are feeling lucky!

The casino edge is relatively low, except for the tie bets. Unlike games like Blackjack and Poker, the players and the banker cannot make decisions regarding card drawing. This is why you do not have to be an experienced Baccarat player to do well. As long as you know the basics and you are familiar with the betting procedure, you should do fine. In short, all you need to do is guess who you think the winner will be. Your gut feel is one of the strongest and wisest choices you can make, and baccarat lets you do just this.

All Online Baccarat rules are usually printed on the table, which means that those who are playing for the first time have the same edge as professional Baccarat players. If you play conservatively, you should make a trickle of a profit by the end of the night. The higher you bet and the better you guess, the more profitable you will be.

The best way to get comfortable with any game is to play it. There are many online casinos which offer free online Baccarat. You should enjoy the free play and you will be able to become familiar with the game before you head off to your chosen online casino to play for real money.

    "Betcoin.TM (A hong kong based casino group).  The last time I visited their site in 2016, they still had it appearing to function, however, once a deposit was shown in your available balance, any game played would give an error and still deduct the bet per spin.  There have been countless followups and investigations on this casino on some other forums determining they are a scam.  Betcoin.TM is is definately one to avoid."

    "Ok, I was inspired to share some of my old wins after reading this thread though, so here are a few more screen shots. This one is from Americas Card Room on the serpents treasure slot.  This was the night I finished in the money in their million dollar poker tourney.  I got a nice payout in the casino after a nice payout in poker.  Think this was late 2015... but cant remember.   A 2015 win from on Golden Dragon.  I wish I had kept all that BTC and sold it now! This next one is hitting the max win on a Captin Cash Slot (x1000).  2014 on (BOL) This one is from hitting 5 scatters on the softswiss game "Cherries Fiesta" on  I didnt notice the scatter win and it was in free spins mode before I could take a screenshot....  This win was followed by several other "nice" wins on "
