• Baccarat Gaming Systems and Fixed Odds

    Baccarat is a game that is grounded on fixed odds and luck. It is classified along with games of chance like slots and roulette where players have no control over the next outcome. Baccarat is sometimes misconstrued as a game where a player's skill can have an effect in the game. This may be due to the fact that cards are used in this game.

    Given all these facts, it is interesting that baccarat gaming systems still come around. Baccarat gaming systems claim that they can mathematically predict the outcome or at least the pattern of a series of winning hands. You can add the card counters to the hodgepodge of statistical geniuses that take the challenge of breaking the game of baccarat.

    Unfortunately, in spite of all these effort and claims, all of them still end up in failure. The reason for such failure is due to the fundamental premise of the game. And that is being a game where skill has nothing to do with how the cards play out.

    An interesting irony to baccarat gaming systems is the fact that the game has two out of its only three possible wagers that has the lowest house edges in any casino. With that as a given, you might wonder what use would a baccarat gaming system have. The odds in the game are still fixed no matter what, which borders around 50/50.

    In case you were wondering and would like to examine baccarat gaming systems yourselves, here are a couple of examples:

    Ride the Streak: This baccarat gaming system's basic premise is that winning hands do come in streaks. You will quickly notice by a little observation that players will have pencils and charts in hand. They keep track of the winning hands and try to see a pattern. The idea is look for a streak and hit it while the chance of winning is still on.

    One Three Two Six: The basic premise of this baccarat gaming system is to risk only smaller amounts in order to take large returns. For the sake of an example, let's say that your first bet amounts to one dollar. If you win you add another dollar to your next bet including your winnings, making three dollars for your second bet. If you win the second time, thus making a total of six dollars, you bet small removing four dollars to your total money. Then the betting pattern cycles from this point on.

    The problem with the first system is that there is no such thing as a pattern of winning hands in baccarat. The problem with the second gaming system is that you can't tell whether you'll win in the next hand or not, thus you can't guarantee that you'll only be risking smaller amounts every single time. Baccarat gaming systems are around, but you don't have to buy them to win in this game.
