All You Need to Know About the Banker Bet

The banker bet in baccarat is a rarity among casino bets, regardless of whether you’re playing online or offline. That doesn’t make it a profitable bet, though it does have a very low house edge of 1.06 percent.

The house gets that edge by charging a 5 percent commission on winning baccarat bets. If you win a $20 bet on the banker hand,  you get $20 in winnings, but you have to pay the house its commission, so $1 goes back into casino coffers.

Baccarat Streak-Swinging Strategy

Many offline casinos don’t allow Baccarat bettors to bet on both Banker and Player at the same time. At first thought you might think it rather odd and self-defeating to back both sides; I mean you’d be winning on one and losing on the other. And of course, you’d be losing commission on the winning portion of your Banker wager upon each Banker outcome.
