Tips for Playing Baccarat

There are very few actual tips for baccarat. Baccarat is a game of luck, and with any game of luck there are not many ways to really influence the outcome without cheating. If you have come hear to find out how to cheat you are looking in the wrong place.
To win money in baccarat you have to pick the winner. In baccarat the winner is the one who makes a hand closest to 9. You have 3 bets you can make, you can bet on the player to win, the banker to win or you can bet that a tie will occur.

The best tip I have ever herd for baccarat is to never bet on the tie. It pays out at 9 to 1, but that is only because it is a long shot. The bet with the best odds is to bet on the banker. The banker holds the house edge which makes him the best chance for a win, but because of this if you win on a bet to the banker the casino takes a 5% rake from all winnings.
The only other tips I have for online baccarat or for a live casino is just trying to use your head. Set a spending and time limit, once either one is reached, leave the table. If you are doing ok you should still get up and take a small walk, this will help you clear your head making it easier for you to go back and stay in control. Remember many times the best way to turn a losing streak into a winning streak is to take a short break go get something to eat, take a walk outside the casino and smoke a cigarette, do something to give you a break from the game. After the break you can return to the game and you will probably do better.
