First, I decided to join after lurking in the forums for a couple of months and found some interesting discussion so I decided to join. Hi, all!

I'm going to be going to Vegas in mid-February and wanted to know if there is much of a difference in playing baccarat in the different casinos, or if people have a favorite location. I've only ever been able to play a video baccarat table (with generous 3% only commission on Banker bets) that one of the Arizona casinos used to have, so I have never played it live.

AFAIK it comes down to personal preference. The D used to offer 4% commission but has done away with it. Everywhere in town will either be 5% commission or no commission EZ bacc or Nepal.

My personal favorite is Gold Coast. Lots of tables (I believe 14) with most mini games at $10, squeeze games at $25, and a wide variety of side bets. Tables are usually full with die hard bacc players which makes things more enjoyable. And GC is one of the easiest off-strip props to hit if you don't have a car.

On-strip Venetian might be your best bet. Most CZR props have only 1 or 2 tables and several MGM props have no bacc outside of the HL room. Lucky Dragon was built to be the go-to bacc joint but I don't think the place has really taken off and you may find yourself in a near empty building depending on what time of the week you go.

Well, alot of players look for "a lucky table" with ooodles of chips on it, but in reality you only need ONE dealer and ONE player.

That's what I call any game where the player gets to actually touch or "squeeze" the cards.

I see what you're saying but I like the social aspect of table games and would not have as much fun playing heads up.

Thanks for the info. I'm staying at the Wynn, so the Venetian would be convenient. I already plan on playing craps either there or the Palazzo because of the stupid 2X max odds at the Wynn. I might take the trip to Gold Coast, I didn't realize they had squeeze type games at just $25.
