Top 4 Baccarat Strategy Tips

These tips are for baccarat players that are trying to use a baccarat strategy to increase their odds of winning, and they apply specifically to the game as played in an Online Casino Malaysia, rather than in Genting Casino. They apply in particular to gamblers using a baccarat strategy or system, more so than to playing baccarat. There are no tricks here that will give you a disadvantage.

Check the odds

It may seem obvious, but before playing in a new casino check that the odds on offer for all the baccarat bets are correct. The normal commission deduction on Banker bets is 5%, but I have seen some casinos charging 25% on this bet. Some places will offer less than 5% too, which is great, so watch out for those. The normal odds on the Player bet should be even. That never varies. The Tie bet is almost always 8 to 1, which is, of course, terrible value and should be avoided.

Always Bet the Player

Most standard baccarat strategy tips will tell you to bet the Banker bet, as it has slightly better odds than the player bet. For players following a baccarat strategy, however, this is bad advice. You should always bet the player bet when you are using a betting strategy. The slightly lower than evens payout on banker bets will cause a problem in progressive systems.

As an example of this, let’s look at a person using the Martingale system of doubling up after each loss until they hit a win. I am not suggesting that you play that system, by the way. This is just for demonstration purposes. This hypothetical player is betting RM10 on the Banker and doubling the previous bet until they hit a win.

Let’s say this player experiences 4 losses in a row and wins on the fifth hand. That is not at all unlikely. The first four losing bets are for RM10, then RM20, then RM40 and then RM80, totaling RM150 staked and lost. The next bet on the banker’s hand is for RM160 and thankfully it wins. The total payout – RM160 stake plus RM160 win – is RM320, less 5% commission, which means the player gets back $304. The total stakes were RM10 + RM20 + RM40 + RM80 + RM160 which comes to RM310. So even though the player finally won his bet, it resulted in a net loss of that sequence of RM6.

A similar run of losses while betting the player hand would have given the expected 1 unit of profit, that is RM10.

Quit when you are ahead

This goes against the “Stick to the Rules” tip listed below but it is good advice nonetheless. Before starting your session work out what you can reasonably expect to win with your baccarat strategy. If your starting bankroll is, for example, RM500, then you should figure out what amount of profit you would be happy to walk away from the table with. Whatever that number is – RM100, RM250, RM500 or even unrealistically RM1000 – if you should reach that amount in profit early in the session you should quit then. You can always come back another day.

Play short sessions

The house edge will get you in the long run. No system or strategy has ever been found that will overcome the built-in house advantage.

If you decide beforehand how many games you are going to play, say 100 or 200, and count them as you play then you will be more prepared to accept a loss on your session and walk away, instead of playing on to try to recover your money.

When you are winning, too, shorter sessions work in your favor. After you reach the number of hands you decided to play, you will be more likely to accept whatever profit you have, even if it’s an odd number like RM67. If you are playing without any set limit you may see that you are up RM67 and decide to play it up to a nice even RM100. That’s a sure-fire way to lose it all back.
