2 to 1 Baccarat

Introduction

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.

Strategy

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.

 

Comparison to Regular Baccarat

Bet 2 to 1 Regular
Player 3.62% 1.24%
Banker 2.20% 1.06%
