Ox 6 Baccarat Side Bet

Introduction

The Ox 6 is a baccarat side bet that wins if the Player hand wins with a three-card total of six. Wins pay 40 to 1.

Rules

  1. The Ox 6 is a side bet based on conventional baccarat rules, which I assume the reader is familiar with.
  2. If the Player hand gets a winning three-card total of six, then the Ox bet shall pay 40 to 1. All other outcomes lose.

Analysis

The following table shows my analysis of the Ox 6 bet with eight decks. The bottom right cell shows a house edge of 10.34%.
