Spread-Bet Baccarat

Introduction

I noticed Spread-Bet Baccarat at the Cammegh area at the 2018 Global Gaming Expo. It is a set of six side bets in baccarat on both the winning side and total.

Rules

  1. The Spread Bets are based on conventional eight-deck baccarat.
  2. There are six Spread Bets available, as follows:
    • Player has winning total of 1 to 3 — Wins pay 30 to 1
    • Player has winning total of 5 or 6 — Wins pay 8 to 1
    • Player has winning total of 8 or 9 — Wins pay 3 to 1
    • Banker has winning total of 1 to 3 — Wins pay 30 to 1
    • Banker has winning total of 5 or 6 — Wins pay 8 to 1
    • Banker has winning total of 8 or 9 — Wins pay 3 to 1

Analysis

The following table shows the number of winning combinations (out of 4,998,398,275,503,360) for each bet, probability of winning, and expected return.
