Online Baccarat Simplified

Online baccarat, which is based on Punto Banco, has a very high average return of 99%. Video poker and blackjack games offer similar average returns. But they entail complex strategies. If you err then the average return will plummet. However, the online baccarat strategy is so simple that you cannot make a mistake. The problem with online baccarat is that it is one of the most boring games ever devised. You cannot get everything on one table.

In online baccarat, a hand is dealt to a Player position and a Banker position. If the hand that you have bet on has the higher value, you win. The valuation of the cards is unique. Cards two through nine are worth their face value. Tens, jacks, queens and kings have a value of zero. Aces are valued at 1 point. Hands are valued by summing the card values and taking the units digit of the sum. The highest possible hand value is therefore nine. Most online baccarat games are played with eight decks.

The game play of online baccarat is as follows. Two cards are dealt face up to each hand. If neither hand has eight or nine, the drawing rules are applied to determine whether the player should receive a third card. If the Player has an initial total of 0 to 5, he draws a third card. The Dealer has a more complicated set of rules for the third card. In the online game the software automatically determines when the third card is to be dealt. Then the hand values are computed and the hand with the higher value wins. If both hands have the same value then it is a tie and neither hand wins.

The Banker hand winning pays 1 to 1, but a 5% commission is deducted from the payout. The effective payout is 0.95 to 1. The average return on the Banker bet is 98.94%. The Player hand winning also pays 1 to 1, but without any commission. Despite this, the average return for the Player bet is 98.76 %. You can also bet on the Tie outcome. Most online casinos pay 8 to 1 for this bet. The seemingly high payout is a bait for unsuspecting newbie baccarat players. The average return is an abysmal 85.64%. Therefore the optimum strategy for online blackjack is to bet on the Banker hand game after game without end. There is no case for doing anything else.
