2 to 1 Baccarat
2 to 1 Baccarat is a baccarat variant found in the Crown casinos of Melbourne and Perth. I understand it is intended for small bettors and has a lower minimum bet than regular baccarat.
The rules are the same as conventional baccarat, except as follows.
- No commission on winning Banker bets.
- A winning 3-card total of 8 or 9 will pay 2 to 1 on both Player and Banker bets.
- Ties lose.
The following table shows the odds for the Player bet. The lower right cell reflects a house edge of 3.62%.
The following table shows the odds for the Banker bet. The lower right cell reflects a house edge of 2.20%.
If you must play this game, the Banker bet offers a much better bet, with a house edge 1.42% less than the Player bet. However, if you can afford the minimums in regular baccarat, then I would highly recommend playing that instead.
The following table compares the house edge in 2 to 1 Baccarat with regular baccarat.
