Hello everyone, first post here...

I've been reading a lot of the posts on the forum and decided to sign up.. loving the site!

I've been playing around with Baccarat and came up with a strategy that I started testing not too long ago, but before I go any further, I figured I would share it here and maybe you guys can let me know if I'm wasting my time or not. I'm not a high limit player by any means, I wouldn't be looking to get rich or any of that, just looking for something that might be a little bit sustainable(even if just for the short term)

I would be playing through an online casino live dealer (not sure which one yet but I have been testing on betonline)

I'm most certain something like this has been done before but here it goes:

I would only place a bet a streak AFTER a streak of 4 has started for either bank or player. I would start with a $10 bet on the opposite side of the streak. If that loses go to 20, then 40 then 80. If the 80 bet loses, I start over at 10. I won't have a huge bankroll to chase and chase with the big bets and I also don't wanna go broke in 1 shoe. I've only done 20 shoes so far (takes about an hour per shoe) and I logged all the results and went back and pretended to play it.

After 20 shoes there has been 3 times where there was a run of more than 8, with the max being 11 ($450 in losses)
There were 74 cases of successful bets (approx $700 in wins after the house cut)
That is a $250 profit, is this sustainable? Is the math against me more than I realize and I've just been lucky? I know its only 250 i 20 hours but it's not so much about the time. This is something I was thinking about doing casually with my girlfriend at night while watching TV and relaxing. It's not something that would take a lot of effort to do while other things going on. I know the sample size is low.

Any info or comments are greatly appreciated!

Hi Keldog, and welcome to the forums.

Sooooo, you're talking about doing a martingale in which you first wait for a "streak" to happen to try to give yourself extra levels, etc, etc, etc. This WILL NOT and DOES NOT work. Like the martingale (doubling your bet after a loss until you win) it will "appear" to work until you finally hit another 4-5 streak after, dumping your entire bankroll. You're not changing the house edge whatsoever. Thus every single bet you place, regardless if it's in streaks or not, has a negative expected value. Thus, you will lose in the long run.

Also, that would be really boring because you might only get a few bets per shoe, which during busy times could last a long time lol.

Others have also tried this with Roulette, waiting for 4 black or 4 red or 4 high or 4 low, etc, etc, before betting the opposite. Please, don't do this. Like all martingales, it works until it doesn't... and when it doesn't, you're going to lose everything. The big key is you're not changing the house advantage and you have a -EV associated with every bet. Thus, you will (with a mathematical certainty) be a loser in the long run.

Keep looking for other ways to beat the casino, but less to do with betting systems! =)
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Thanks Romes!

What would be the way to play it? I heard counting is near pointless. Is baccarat a game I should just stay away from in general?

This is strictly for what it's worth, because the truth is, there is no bet you can place on baccarat that is in the player's favor. Systems don't work.

The conventional wisdom on streak betting is, bet WITH the streak. That way you can only lose once. Your money will last a lot longer.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

As mentioned by others, systems don't work if your goal is to profit from -EV casino games.

This system is pretty good because the majority of the time you will not be betting, but in the long run you will still expect to lose. What you should do is count cards on blackjack instead.

Give up baccarat and try the same system at the SicBo table or machine.
Wait for a few rolls of the three dice combinations and bet only on 1 dice number.

Example: If a six does not show up for 3 or 4 rolls in a row, then start betting your money on the 6 and only the six. Don't worry about any other bets. If 1 six shows you win 1:1, If 2 sixes show then your bet pays 2:1, if 3 sixes show then you get 3:1
Again, Do not play any other bets on the table.

Good luck to you.
