House Edge on Baccarat | Betting on Player

Featured Comment

So when betting for player only and when we win it is a payout of 2x. When it's a tie the payout is 1x and when we lose it's a 0x of course. 

Meanwhile when we are betting on the banker a win results in a 0.98x, a tie and loss remains the same as 1x and 0x respectively. What really is the reason to this? According to the rules I don't see why the betting on the banker results in a 0.98x - which essentially means the odds winning on the banker is greater. Does anyone know how??

But as it seems, both the banker and player seem to have a 50-50 chance of winning a hand, just like in diamond poker. And in that case then the house edge would be nil when betting on the player only. But that doesn't sound right so if anyone knows how it works let us know! :)

Due to the Banker's  draw of a third card (and player with only 2) in some situations, the number of possible combinations that actually favour the Banker increases. 

This slight 'advantage' would normally mean a positive-EV bet for the Banker, which is why a return of <100% makes sense for a win that is placed on Bank.

It is strange in terms of multipliers in Baccarat when we choose a banker then we only get a 1.98 multiplier but in my opinion this is as a fee for the web because if we play in Baccarat by playing to both sides between the player and the banker there will be a draw because both of them get a multiplier 2 if that happens there will be many people playing on both sides of the baccarat to raise their Wagerd without losing the slightest balance.

I think when we play on player then we get same payout like other 50/50 but when we play on banker then winning result is 1.98x because on banker they cut 2 percent commission but lose or tie results same

this is the best explanation, this is what i believe the reason for all of this, so that people cant cheat the csino, coz if you can join the race without losing anything then you can even bet 10000btc and not lose anything and win the race, right? you get it?

Yes I understand why the casino has a house edge. I was not asking why it is not 1x and 1x or 2x and 2x. I was simply asking where is comes about. Like is it in the game itself like roulette, or is it an altered payout like dice just to get the house edge. Although I don't think it's the latter. :)

I've never really understood how it works completely. However, even if the banker has an advantage, it still comes down to an almost 50% chance of winning. You'll only notice differences over the long run.

but what i noticed banker wins most of the times, i mean they didnt made it  like that but when ever i played i saw banker have more edge than player side, but apart from that, this game isnt worth playing if you want to wager then dice and limbo are better options.

It may be, but it is very strange!

For me both have an equal chance of 50/50. Which is why the 2x payout should be. I don't see the banker as having an advantage over the player at any time. I almost never bet on the banker. Except when there are a lot of bad strings for the player.
In the long run, this rate of 0.02% subtracted by betting on the banker consumes much of the total profit!

that is very headache a lot although u r in the casino it always have problem with this discuss on the table that i think why it should be like that in the real bacarrat banker is not the banker play i always see the people who bet highest in banker open that so it very cleaver that casino save the energy and save cost for hire staff or smt so it a crazy if the casino collect edge it can collect for all player not only for who choose banker that the highest bet open that haha think like me

Betting on the tie seems like a good option to me, maybe I'm missing something. I think it pays 8 to 1 right? If you bet and win on a Tie in Baccarat. But  catching the streaks on the player side seems to give the best returns, if you can pick up the rythm.

The house edge ithink will go on draw and it's really not worth it when the banker hit you only got 1.95x not equal to the player + if you hit draw it's completely loss so it's much better to use dice or limbo on wagering instead of both side bet :)

Unfortunately, I can not help you, I do not know the answer to your question, but I can be interested in my friends who are still playing poker, maybe I will be able to help you. In general, I like to find people who like poker just as much as I do. My whole life is about poker. My dad used to have his own casino before, I remember when I was a kid and I used to go to work, I could see others playing and I loved this game. Finally, after we moved to South Korea with a living. The father left the business, and I now play more online casinos like https://casino-korea.com. I think you've heard of him.

I don't really understand how the payouts works at baccarat. But I use martingale on such game that offers only 2x as the highest payouts Lol. I seldom play this game by the way. I only focus on 2x or 0x, so I think only for baccarat as a simple win or lose game. Just two results for me.

Generally speaking, it is 1.98x instead of 2x because of the house edge. The banker has the favour in the game setup so it is natural that they would just put a lower payout for it to straighten the odds so it will still be in the favor of the house.
