Baccarat?


I’ll have additional comments later.
Superstitions are silly, childish, irrational rituals, born out of fear of the unknown. But how much does it cost to knock on wood? 😁 Note that the same could be said for Religion. I.E. Religion is nothing more than organized superstition. 🤗

OK. Here's my review.

I like it for a variety of reasons. I don't dislike the main game much at all. However, the Triple-Hit is terrible.

I like the main game for it's similarity to Roulette, both in house edge and payouts. The lack of any even money bets might be an issue though. Of course, you could allow splits of the color bets to get an even money option.

I assume you're targetting online, but I could also see this in a B&M casino. Changing a standard roulette wheel to your version would be relatively simple. Just change the labels on the wheel's edge. And since the payouts are the same, very little dealer training would be needed.

And unlike the Luck Brother's attempt with Rainbow Roulette, this is simple enough that any relitively experienced roulette player will quickly see that the odds and house edge is the same as standard roulette.


In my opinion, the Triple-Hit has got to go. It reminds me a lot of my original side bet, Hit It Again. The appeal of that was that although there was a higher house edge, if successful, the jackpot payout far exceeded anything that a player could achieve by simply parlaying a win (because otherwise, he'd hit the table max). To my shock and surprise, I learned that casinos don't like to pay out jackpots. Table maximums are there for a reason. Your Triple-Hit doesn't have the same type of huge jackpot potential, and it doesn't have a lot of appeal compared to a simple press progression.

I.E. If I bet $1 on the 4 color number, and got paid $8, I could keep the $5 the Triple-Bet would have paid, and press the bet to $4. Hit again, get paid $32, keep $30 and press the bet to $6. Hit again, and I collect $48, and take down the $6, for a total of $5+$30+$48+$6=$89. OK. Your method is better. But if I was more aggressive, say keeping only $25 after that second hit, I'd collect $88 on a third hit. $5+$25+$88+$11=$129. Your way I'd have $131. Two bucks more. Big deal. Get $1 more aggressive after that second hit and I'd have the Triple-Bet beat. And let's not forget the crazy players that would do a full parlay for two hits. They'd clean up with $729!

Any reasonable player who does the math as I did would think there was something fishy about that side bet and call the entire game into question.

If you insist on keeping it, you need to either change the payouts and only pay after it's fully resolved, or included a statement on the felt that it pays after each hit.


Of course, this is all just my opinion. Your mileage may vary. Good luck!

By the way...

Somehow I totally missed your Spectrum Roulette thread. The only difference is it’s single zero.

All my comments here apply there as well.

As DJ notes, the only difference is the zeros so I'll address that. It's certainly reasonable to make a house friendly double zero game but why black and red (which I assume gives the game its name)? Spectrum has a traditional green 0 which stands out well on the wheel. If you must use black and red (and I only have the computer version of Contrast as a reference) consider swapping the the colors. The red 0 is flanked by both an orange and pink 1 so it blends in. The yellow next to the black is okay but it blends with the blue on the other side. If you swap, you solve both these issues as both colors will stand out against adjacent ones.

Also, do you believe in wheel clocking and ball steering? Because boy do those side-by-side 5s make a (live game) tempting target! The 1s are also close but separated by the Os and the colors are diagonal in inner betting area. The paired 5s, however, have adjacent colors setting up a split bet AP nirvana. I don't have an opinion on the subject but, from what I understand, casino wheels now feature low frets separating the pockets and dealers are instructed to spin them faster. So someone, somewhere apparently believes something.
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Hi DJTeddyBear,
Thanks for your comments.
I will offer this game one with Triple-Hit, and one without Triple-Hit, then it is up-to the Casino which one they like to use.
