Famous Baccarat Systems
People have tried for years to come up with systems that are capable of beating the house in baccarat. Some people swear off betting systems saying they are useless while other gamblers think that baccarat systems are a gold mine. Your opinion on the matter will most likely rest on your experiences, and if you’re wanting to get started on those experiences, here are some baccarat systems you can use.
This is the most classic of all the baccarat systems since it’s one of the oldest and heavily tested as well. The main principle behind the Martingale system is that you’re supposed to double your bets after every loss. So if you lose $5, you double your next wager to $10; if you lose that, you double the next bet to $20. In theory, this system works since you will eventually win your money back. But the problem is that online casinos have placed limits on max bets so if you hit a cold streak, you will reach the betting limit and not be able to recoup losses.
As the name implies, the 1-3-2-6 system is kind of complicated. This system starts off with you making a 1 unit bet (minimum bet); if you win this, your next bet will be 3 units (the winning two units plus an addition bet should be put onto the table). If you win this (a net win of 6 units), you take four units off the table and make a two unit bet. Assuming you win this wager, you put all four units onto the table and add an additional two bets (thus completing the 1-3-2-6 system). If at anytime you lose, you drop back to 1 unit wagers. The best thing about this system is that you will never lose more than two units on a single wager while the drawback is that it’s pretty hard to win four straight bets and profit.
Getting back to the easier systems, the Fibonacci system requires you to start out with the minimum wager (we’ll say $5 in this case). You keep betting this number until you lose, at which point you would add up the sum of the previous two wagers and bet again (i.e. $5 + $5 = $10; lose again then it’s $5 + $10 = $15). The good thing about this system is that it prevents people from losing much money, but the bad part is that you don’t capitalize on big win steaks since you drop back to the minimum bet on after a win.
