I just heard about a new game at the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore -- Fabulous 4 Baccarat. Yes, it is another attempt to both increase the house edge and remove the 5% commission on the Banker bet. Throw in some more side bets and you're ready to roll!

Please click the link and let me know your thoughts.

The question for the poll is would you play Fabulous 4 Baccarat?

p.s. PokerGrinder, did you see this game?

What ever happened to your rule about only analyzing games that are widespread?

That is more of the policy when I'm really busy. This game came to my attention on a good day.

Besides, this took about 10 minutes to analyze.

Instead of Player or Banker win "by 4", maybe it would be clearer to say win "with a total of 4". The first makes it appear that you have to win by a margin of 4.

Do you think the "Fabulous" side bets, which pay on two initial suited cards in the Player or Banker hands are countable?

Thanks. You're right. I just changed the "by" to a "with."

I don't think that is countable. But the Player and Banker bets just might be. Maybe a deck rich and tens and aces, with a shortage of fours, would be advantageous.
