I decided to create a very simple calculator to focus on the one thing players and casino surveillance care about the most — what is the edge when a player makes a wager. And so I give you, the Baccarat Edge Calculator:
This is an Excel spreadsheet that uses macros. You can use this spreadsheet for real-time analysis of a shoe in progress, or you can use it to analyze a shoe after-the-fact. It covers all the most popular baccarat variations as well as the most common side bets. Full instructions and information is available in the spreadsheet to make it easy to understand and easy to use.
A full-featured spreadsheet that allows player analysis is also available, see the previously shared Baccarat Risk Analyzer .
