As professional gamblers, we are always glad to share some of the winning tips with our readers. Mini baccarat is a very interesting and exciting game which may become even more interesting if you will increase your chances of winning. The rules of baccarat are similar to blackjack; with baccarat you will try to get as close as possible to 9, whereas with blackjack this number is 21. But just as with other card games, like poker, perfecting your playing style by picking up useful tips and watching professionals play, will definitely have a positive effect on your winnings.
Please find below several baccarat tips that you may use to your advantage:
* Place a bet on the banker’s hand, your hand or a tie. When you put your chips on one of the betting areas you make a bet. A winning bet on banker’s hand or your hand pays 1 to 1 while a winning bet on a tie pays 9 to 1 or 8 to 1 depending on the casino.
* Total your points after your first two cards were dealt.
* Open your cards if your cards total 8 or 9. THis is called “natural” and you automatically win unless the banker also has a “natural”.
* Do not draw and stand on your cards if your first two cards total six or more.
