All about baccarat

When you think of baccarat, it is not difficult to be enticed by the mystery and cool, smooth lifestyle that was created by the one and only Mr. Bond. The game and the legacy of the movies go hand in hand and while it may be improbable for you to become a undercover spy or build special-agent contraptions, you can introduce yourself to the baccarat game. The game is, in so many ways, associated with a life of pure opulence and is easier to play than you might think.

Along with the extravagance surrounding the game, comes mysterious myths and it is best that you don’t cloud your judgment by believing them. They are only myths, without any logic explanation behind them. So, if you want to play baccarat, you should get rid of these fable fantasy’s to avoid any disappointment.

CARD COUNTING

  • Myth:

It is a well-known fact that card counting is possible in blackjack. It is a very successful strategy that makes your chances of beating the house very possible. Many believe the same is possible when playing baccarat. Maybe because the two card games have many similarities.

  • Truth:

Not so fast! The fact is that the cards in baccarat are not returned to the shoe, which makes it impossible to count cards in baccarat. And, although baccarat and blackjack share some similarities on the surface, there are also many differences that makes the card-counting strategy impossible.

DETECTING PATTERNS

  • Myth:

A natural hand is when two cards are displayed, equaling eight or nine. Many believe that you can detect when a natural hand will occur and therefor will be able to increase your bet to make more winnings.

  • Truth:

Baccarat is a game of absolute luck and chance. Your chances will be the same to win as when you flip a coin. The wonderful thing about this game is that you don’t need a lot of skill to play it successfully. Many players win by counting on luck instead of strategy.

THE MYSTERIOUS MARTINGALE SYSTEM

  • Myth:

Also known as a progressive betting system, many believe that this system works in baccarat. It is when a player takes advantage of the odds and then increases his bet accordingly.

  • Truth:

This system is as useless in baccarat as it is in any other game out there. The only time that it will slightly work is if you can find a table with no maximum betting limits and good luck with finding that. It is almost impossible. The other important factor is that you will need a unlimited bankroll because you will need to keep up with the bets which can easily change from $10 to $1000.

BACCARAT IS RIGGED

  • Myth:

Players around the world believe that not only baccarat, but also many other online casino games are rigged. Why? Maybe because they can’t see when the cards are being shuffled. There are also myths that it is impossible for online casinos to produce players with a natural hand.

  • Truth:

This myth is just plain impossible. Online casinos are regulated, controlled and audited to make sure that they don’t rig the games and many players will admit that they have had natural hands in each baccarat session.

YOU CAN’T MAKE PROFIT IN BACCARAT

  • Myth:

Many players believe that if you are not a high roller or a player in the elite class, you will not be able to keep up with the bets because your bankroll will not be good enough. This results in many players believing that the game is not profitable.

  • Truth:

The shocking truth is that baccarat is the most favourable game that you can possibly play. It is far more profitable than roulette or slots because the house holds only a 1.24% edge over the player. It is also one of the easiest games to play, which does not require a lot of skill which makes the myth absolutely unfound.
