Baccarat Betting Strategy

I’ve found that there’s some very good information on how to read and compile Baccarat Roadmaps. I’ve even written one myself!

However, finding a Baccarat Betting strategy that uses the Roadmaps is another story.

Until now.

On this page, you’ll find my own personal live casino Baccarat playing strategy.

First, though, here are some of my favourite casinos to play live Baccarat online.

Other great casinos to play live Baccarat in…

As a final note, there are two other casinos I’d recommend to play live Baccarat in.

The first is Fairway Casino and the other is Energy Casino.

Energy casino offers the same versions of Baccarat that most live casinos offer. However, what makes Fairway such a great place to play is the Free Play Baccarat option.

Baccarat is a simple enough game, but it’s good to be able to practice it before you play.

You don’t want to lose money just because you didn’t know what you were doing!

Can you play live Baccarat with a strategy?

I certainly think so! I’ve been betting on Baccarat for a few years and played similar games where there are a limited number of playing outcomes. In Baccarat’s case, it’s either a player win, banker win, or a tie.

I use playing or betting strategies when playing these types of games, as a haphazard betting approach can and will lead to you losing your bankroll quicker than you should.

I’ve tried a few betting systems out and I think the one I’m going to demonstrate to you in my video is probably the easiest to use — and also the one I have the most success with.

If you don’t like reading lots then watch the video.

If you’re really itching to see what the strategy is, skip to 06:30 where I start playing.

Important information about live Baccarat strategy

A playing strategy is not a recipe for winning.

It will help you enjoy your playing time more and — if the cards are being kind — you may end up in profit.

I’m not going to sugar coat it, gambling is gambling and there are no easy wins.

That said, being structured in your approach helps hugely with your enjoyment, so follow these tips if you’re going to use my Betting Strategy for Baccarat.

  • When playing, set yourself a budget and stick to it.
  • Set yourself a realistic win limit. Once you’ve reached it, walk away with your profit.
  • Don’t chase losses; take a break.

When using the strategy...

  • Be patient.
  • Follow the betting rules I describe. Don’t get cocky and try your own thing.
  • Get up and walk away after hitting your target — however quickly that may occur. Then, start again a bit later. Always bank your profit.

Baccarat betting strategy

The basic premise of the strategy is to bet on runs or sequences of results. This is where you make your money. The longer the run is, the more money you make.

While Baccarat is a random game, if you look closely at the Roadmaps, you’ll see runs occurring during the lifetime of the dealing shoe. You’ll be surprised at how many there actually are.

You’ll also see times when the results have been Dealer/Player/Dealer/Player/Dealer. These alternating runs are to be avoided, as these will be losing streaks. I’ll explain later how we use these to our advantage.

This strategy is simple and aims to use probability and odds of something happening or not happening to your advantage. You don’t need to be a mathematician to work out what to do; just follow what I do.

What is the Strategy?

Well, this is a bit of a mix of playing strategies I’ve seen and used elsewhere.

Underlying it is the Martingale Strategy, where after a losing bet you double your next bet until you win again. This wipes out previous losses.

The clever bit is to know when to start betting and on what — then being able to bet on a sequence as it’s happening until it finishes.

I use the Baccarat Roadmaps to identify the ideal point at which to start betting.

Preparing to Bet

You’ll need a bit of a Bankroll — how much depends on the stakes you want to play for and your budget.

If you’re betting £5 a hand then a bankroll of £155 should be sufficient to start with, as that allows for five losing bets in a row. For £1 a hand, you’ll need £31. For £2 a hand, you’ll need £62.

If I’m betting £5 a hand, I walk away and bank my winnings when I hit a profit of £25. That’s a 16% profit on my initial Bankroll. Not bad!

I’ll come back later, often when the shoe has changed, and start again.

Live Baccarat betting sequence

Using the Roadmaps, I tend to use either the Bead Plate or the Big Road. I look for the sequences and wait until the last four hands in the shoe are Banker/Player/Banker/Player (or the other way around; it doesn’t matter).

Then, I’ll start betting.

  • I bet on the last winner with 1 x Bet and keep betting on this till I lose.
  • I then double my bet and place it on the last winner. I repeat this until I have won.
  • When I’ve won, I reduce my stake back down to 1 x Bet and continue betting on the last winner until I lose again.
  • Repeat the process until you either reach your winning limit or bust out.
  • If the result is a Tie between the Banker/Player, double your bet and stay where you are.

And that’s it.

If you’ve watched my video, you’ll see I followed the strategy and ended up with a profit of £30. I walked away and banked the profit.

I came back later and repeated the process another three times and banked an overall profit of £120 for a few elapsed hours of play.

Good luck.
