New Tiger Baccarat game offered by Marina Bay Sands (MBS) in Singapore. A 'tiger' happens when you win with a 6, where in no-commission baccarat games, the Banker bet pays half (instead of a 5% commission when Banker wins).

Would anyone be able to help to calculate the house edge for these bets?

goo[dot]gl/KwVKyw

‘Tiger Tie’ - 35 to 1

‘Single Tiger Pair’ - 4 to 1

‘Double Tiger Pair’ - 20 to 1

‘Twin Tiger Pair’ - 100 to 1

‘Tiger’

‘Tiger’ with Banker winning on 6 with two cards - 12 to 1

‘Tiger’ with Banker winning on 6 with three cards - 20 to 1

‘Small Tiger’ - 22 to 1

‘Big Tiger’ - 50 to 1

Would anyone be able to help to calculate the house edge for these bets?

senneth,

You failed to mention the number of decks, so I assumed 8.

I calculated the player's edge for each of the "Tiger 6" sidebets, and got these results:

Hope this helps!

SMALL TIGER and BIG TIGER house edge is 14.33255% and 15.25332% respectively. I did not check for "TIGER Banker wins with 6" and "TIGER TIE Player and Banker both 6"

ssho88,

Would you please show your work? I cannot figure why your results and mine differ so wildly.

Sorry for the late arrival. If any of the rules are unclear, I found the TIGER NO COMMISSION BACCARAT (MBS) Game Rules, from the Singapore casino regulatory authority.

I will get to analyzing this shortly.

The first step in analyzing any game is understanding what the rules are, which is sometimes more difficult than the actual analysis. That was the case with Niu Niu, the last game I analyzed, but that is another story.

I at least have my understanding of the rules in writing in my new page on Tiger No Commission Baccarat at WoO. I welcome any corrections or questions.

My page on this is pretty much done.

DogHand, thank you for your analysis. We agree on everything except the Small Tiger and Big Tiger. Can you check your return for a loss in those bets. For example, you show a 96.28% chance at a loss, which I agree with, on the Small Tiger, but it contributes only -91.09% to the return. Shouldn't it be -96.28%?

Wizard,

I believe you are correct.

I did the calculations at home. I'm traveling now, so when I return I'll check to see what I did wrong.

P.S. Did you ever correct your Blazing 7's BJ sidebet page?

Wizard,

Yes, I had a typo on my Excel spreadsheet in the formulas for the return on a loss for both the Small and Big Tiger sidebets. I have corrected the error and now my results agree with yours and ssho88's.

Hi Wizard,

Very informative.

I would like to bring to your attention, that MBS Singapore uses 10 decks now. Will there be big difference in the Math?

Secondly, can i know how do we calculate the house edge for these side bets?

Thank you :-)

Sorry, I'm still new to this mathematic stuffs. I trying to figure out how Wizard able to calculate the probability of Double Tiger Pair is 0.005201.

In my case, the way I do it is multiply the probability of player's pairs of Aces to total probability of banker's pairs then takaway probability of Twin Pairs of Aces:

= 0.5746% x 6.6147% - 0.0029% = 0.0351%. Then do the same with other 12 ranks I have a total probability of Double Tiger Pair is 0.4561%. Please tell me where I did wrong and how to fix it. Thank you

Thank you. The effect of ten decks compared to eight would be very negligible. My compiler is presently not working, but I'll add some ten-deck numbers to my site when I get that problem resolved, which will probably require getting a new computer.
