Every day there are new betting systems thought up by Baccarat players on how to win big when playing Baccarat, unfortunately, most of these are more pipe dreams than anything else, like many casino games where the house has an edge. However, the thought of being able to beat the system is so enticing that players continue to try to figure out mathematical ways to tilt the odds in their favor.
The 3 most popular Baccarat betting systems that are used now days are called the Martingale System(you may have heard of this system for other games like Craps or Blackjack), Card Counting System and the 1-3-2-6 System. Below we will describe what these systems are, how they work and how to use them.
Martingale Baccarat Betting System
The Martingale system is one of the most commonly known about casino game betting systems. The Martingale is most likely the most popular because of how simple it is to learn rather than how beneficial it is to your bank roll. If you win with the Martingale system, you could really win, but if you lose, you could lose big. This is how the Martingale system goes; You start by betting 1 chip, if your 1 chip wins you take the winning chip and bet 1 chip on the next round.
If your first bet loses, on your next bet you would bet 2 chips. If this second bet wins you will take the extra chips you just won and re-bet at 1. If you lose, you will again double your last bet, making your next bet 4 chips. You continue on like this. The thinking behind it is if you double the bet each time you lose, when you win you will break even.
Card Counting Baccarat Betting System
The Card Counting system, like the Martingale system can also be found when looking for Blackjack systems. The card counting system is probably the hardest to understand as Baccarat is played with a shoe of cards instead of a single deck.
Not only does being a shoe of cards make it harder to actually keep track of what cards have already been played, it also makes it so that keeping track of the cards is pointless. The odds of knowing what cards are left in the deck actually improving your wins is not much of anything. As with many gambling games, they were meant for entertainment purposes, not to build a career out of, that is why most systems truly do not work.
1-3-2-6 Baccarat Betting System
The 1, 3, 2, 6 Baccarat betting system may seem the most confusing of all the Baccarat systems at first, but in the end it will become second nature. The way it goes is this, on your first bet you bet 1 chip. If you win the first one you will have 2 chips on the table, you now add another chip to the bet and let it go one more round making the second bet a total of 3 chips.
If you win your second bet, you will have 6 chips on the table. You take 4 chips back and let the 2 chips left remain for the next round. If you win the third round, you will have 4 chips on the table, add 2 chips to the bet for the next round. If you win the fourth round, you will have 12 chips on the table, 10 of them being profit. If at any time you should lose, you simply start over from the beginning. The best thing about this system, is that no matter if you lose on any of the 4 rounds, you can only lose a max of 2 chips.
