commission. 1.29% is the house edge for this bet.
Your bet on the Bank Hand:
You are betting on the Banker hand placing your gaming chips in the “Banker” area in front of you.
If the banker hand at the end of the round will be greater than the player's you win the bet.
You are paid even money and charged the standard 5% commission fee on the amount that you won.The dealer doesn’t collect the “vigorish” after each round, because the game go slow.
He pays even money to winning banker bets and keeps records of the commission every player owes. The dealer will collect the accumulated commission after the finish of a shoe, or when a player wants to leave before the end of a shoe.
The casino has advantage of 1.01% when you bet on the "Banker's" hand. It is one of the lowest house advantages in the casino.
Your bet on the Tie Hand:
You are betting on the Tie Hand placing your gaming chips in the "Tie" area or on the number corresponding to your seat. A bet on a Tie pays
8 to 1 without any commission fee.
If there is a tie, bets on the "Player” or “Banker” backs, but you can leave them on the betting area for the next game or
decrease/increase your bet.
In Baccarat Tie Bet is the worst since this bet has a house advantage of 15.75%.
