Odds and house margins in baccarat

Baccarat is the casino game with the lowest house margin of all casino games. This means that the player has the best win rate when playing Baccarat instead of other casino games, such as Blackjack or Slot machine, because the house edge is lower.

Odds and house margins in baccarat
There are three types of bets you can make in Baccarat. You can bet on the player’s hand (or the player’s), the dealer’s hand (the house) or a tie bet. Each of these bets has a different house margin. The house hand offers the best odds for players in baccarat, while draw bets have the worst odds for players.

To name a regular Baccarat table, casino odds range from 1.01% to 1.24% for house and player bets. Baccarat is known for its higher limit tables. However, you shouldn’t be afraid to bet at least $ 25 or $ 50 because it’s better to play a high-stakes game with a higher chance of winning than a low-stakes game with no chance!

Baccarat can be played with 1 to 8 decks of cards and the probabilities for each hand are as follows:
Number of Decks that Dealer wins. Player wins Draw
1 deck of cards
6 decks of cards 0.458653 0.446279 0.095069
8 decks of cards 0.458597 0.446247 0.095156
The casino always has a commission on each House hand. As a rule it is 5%, sometimes 4%. The payout odds for the tie bet are either 8: 1 or 9: 1, so the house odds are as follows:

Number of cards House bet 5% Dealer bet 4% Player bet Draw 9: 1 Draw bet 8: 1
1 deck of cards * 1.01% 1.29% 15.57%
6 decks of cards ** 1.0558% 0.5972% 1.2374% 4.9313% 14.4382%
