I spent an hour surfing the web in an effort to find and discuss different methods of beating baccarat. Included are betting systems, money management, patterns, trends and other mythological methods. Actual methods of beating baccarat are discussed as well.
Baccarat, more than any other game, invokes mythological thinking and illusory pattern perception. Casinos do their best to reinforce this mythology by using electronic display boards that show various “roads.” The roads and other data on these boards are meant to instill confidence in the player, to help him see a pattern. Once a player believes there is a pattern, he will likely wager more. These boards are also faster and cheaper than traditional hand scoring.
