The traditional version of baccarat (meaning high betting room), where the player actually dealt cards, was a leisurely game; You can play 40 decisions an hour. But there is a worm that upsets the soup pot in baccarat. That is the mini-baccarat version of this game.
There are two main differences between the traditional baccarat and the mini-baccarat. The first and obvious thing is that the dealer starts the game, not the player. The second is the fact that the game is played very quickly, and since fast, some players will get between 150 and 200 decisions! Yes, really fast.
Yes, the minimum table stakes are usually lower than in traditional games but 200 decisions even with a house advantage of 1.06 and 1.24 can be devastating if things go against you.
If you are going to play mini-baccarat then you should use a betting system just for the house. You should bet on the dealer until you lose. After that, wait until the player loses and return to bet on the dealer. That should theoretically halve (more or less) the number of decisions you face. That would theoretically halve (give or take) your loss as well.
Hint 6: Tie does not count
In this recommended play style, all draw bets are invisible – they do not count; they are simply a pause in action. If the sequence is Dealer, dealer, tie, you will treat the tie as if it didn’t happen. Hence, you will continue to bet on the dealer.
