So whats the house edge. As steep as you first thought?

Tray pay is 52%, jackpot about 24%, house edge about 24% (must be less than 25% in Vegas).

I hope I'm not revealing anything I'm not supposed to, but the GLI report indicated the jackpot seeds and contribution rates. The bottom line is a house edge of 20%, on average.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Only winning 7 out of 100 bets seems like you're just throwing money away. Why do casinos bother?

Found a video that shows a Baccarat table that offers the K-9 bet. On the table layout is a different suited K-9 in front of each player, so supposedly there's only one suited winner per hand. Nobody was making a $5 bet, but the jackpot could be pretty high. Typically when I look at poker opening hands, there's 13 x 13 or 169 hands. With a pair of cards decided by suit, I guess it's 1/52 x 1/51 = 1/2652 on whether 2 cards dealt will even show up and match your felt designation.
