​Contrast® Bonus-Baccarat™ 红黑對比 百家樂™
The First Baccarat Side-bet based on the Contrast-Color of the TOTAL Dealt-cards.

RULES:

Contrast® Bonus Baccarat™ is a Side-bet for any Baccarat game.

​1. Contrast® Bonus Baccarat™ wager is placed at the start of the hand, along with the regular Baccarat wagers.

2. Once all wagers are placed, play proceeds as normal Baccarat game.

3. The Contrast Bonus wager is resolved at the end of the round and will be eligible for a Payout if one of the following two conditions are true:
a). If all Player cards used are Red, and all Banker cards used are Black.
b). If all Player cards used are Black, and all Banker cards used are Red.

4. If either of these conditions are met, the Contrast Bonus wager is paid depending on whether a total of Four, Five or Six cards were used.

​5. Otherwise, the Contrast Bonus wager loses.

* The Question is what do you think about (​Contrast® Bonus-Baccarat™) and WHY?
Any Comments are Welcome Good or Bad (Please give Comments with reasons) so I know WHY and learn from it.

I like the Contrast wager for both this and BJ. As opposed to an all-or-nothing baccarat side bet, I like how the Contrast can pay small, medium or big. My only problem with it is how infrequently it hits. To be fair, this is true of all baccarat side bets so maybe fanatical players won't care.

Not being a mathematician, I did a "kitchen table" test of the Contrast wager by playing through one shoe on the simulator here. I got five hits in 80 games: two four-card, two five-card and one six-card. That's a lot of watching the dealer rake your money away. According to the WoO page for this bet you're showing pay table #3 (HE=6.15%) in the picture. So, had I bet one unit on every hand, I would have ended up down only one unit. (Using pay table #1 I would have broken even after 80 games.) Longer term then, not terrible--even good by baccarat standards.

Would I personally play? As a recreational gambler willing to sacrifice some HE for fun yeah, I'd probably mess around with it. I certainly like it better than the Tie wager. If I got a good hit, however, one that put me even a few units ahead for the shoe, I'd just pocket the money and call it quits.

AP players obviously won't touch it, but baccarat fanatics looking at the board for trends? They probably would.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

* Red/Black Bonus-Baccarat Sounds Better.
I do like Red/Black Bonus-Baccarat, but I can't get the Registered-Trademark for it.
That is why I when for Contrast® Bonus Baccarat™.

* Side-bets are for suckers.
This is mostly true, and that is the way Casinos like it.
So if you want to make a Side-bets, it have to be a Sucker-bet or it will not be in the Casino/s for long.
