I just created a new page on Dragon Tiger. This is about the easiest game I ever analyzed. As usual, I welcome comments and corrections.

In the tie bet explanation you write:

Quote:

Either give the house edge, or change it to "...a house edge of:

I'm surprised that you don't make a comparison to, or at least mention, Baccarat, in that the entire table is playing the same hand at once.

I'm also surprised that you don't make mention or comparison to Casino War, since the base game is identical, right down to the house edge, to a player who always surrenders rather than going to war, but with a worse tie bet payout.

Quote: Advice

The counter will have no trouble noticing that the big, small, and suit bets would be highly countable.

Hell, even a non-card counter can see that counting those side bets could be profitable. Which begs another Baccarat comparison: Is it a slow paced game with players scribbling notes between hands?



Typo / bad edit:
Quote: Big/Small

The player may bet whether a particular card will be over or under seven. If the chosen card is exactly seven then the wager will lose. Wins pay even money. The following table shows a house edge of The Tie bet will win if the Dragon and Tiger cards equal in rank. Wins pay 8 to 1. The following table shows a house edge of 7.69%.

Get rid of the highlighted stuff.

Thanks for the comments and corrections thus far. I try to not hit the reader over the head with obvious advice. However, I did add another comparison to baccarat in the introduction.

Wizard, It's interesting to learn that you are posting "Asian Games". Is there any particular reasons for your new interest?

泥ragon and Tiger is played in several Cambodia casinos, including Ha Tien Vegas Casino & Resorts owned by Bridge Capital, USA. The most popular games in Cambodia are Baccarat and Tiger and Dragon. In Vietnam, the most popular games are Bai Buu and Gau Ham then Baccarat. I have the complete manual for 泥ragon and Tiger . If interested, please PM me.

"It is basically a two-card version of baccarat. To be more specific, two cards are drawn, one to the Dragon and one to the Tiger. The player bets on which one will be higher."

I was initially confused by the reference to baccarat since the baccarat scoring system is not used. I would suggest that you change the generally summary sentences above to something along these lines:

"It is basically Casino War using a baccarat betting system. To be more specific, two cards are drawn, one to the Dragon and one to the Tiger. The player bets on which one will be higher"

Well, I can't discuss Venetian business in public. However, if any of them install the game I'll be sure to update my page with the information.

Given that the "Suit", "Big" and "Small" are countable, what does the casino do to hold it's edge? I suspect low penetration, but would a CSM do the same?

I'm surprised a "7" wager isn't part of the standard package.

The probably put it on a continuous shuffler. Yes, a side bet on a seven would make sense, as a hedge.
