I just wrote up new pages on a couple baccarat side bets I saw at the Global Gaming Expo. For the benefit of AZD, I'll make the links nice and big:


Ox 6
Kill the Ox/Tiger


As always, I welcome all questions, comments, and especially corrections.

The question for the poll is which of these would you bet if playing baccarat only?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

If the Silver Surfer and Iron Man team up, they’d be alloys.

Silver alloys readily with gold, copper and zinc. However, silver does not alloy with iron or most other metals.

Silver also does not react with air -no matter how high a temperature you heat it to. When silver objects tarnish, they are reacting with sulfur in the environment, not oxygen.
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

Rawthuh a bit of a killjoy, old chap! It's a (very bad) joke - a pun on "allies", right? Wizard requires a joke to bump a thread, so there it was. But I did learn something from you, so thanks.

IMO, they're a pair of dull bets with a hit rate of 1 in 50 and 1 in 40 (approx), so very unlikely I would play either. Except baccarat is like watching paint dry or grass grow, to me. So chances are, if I were strapped to a chair there anyway, I would probably bet anything on the table just to get through it.

I still answered neither.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
