On the same machine that has the Lucky Charlie side bet I wrote about earlier today, there is a baccarat side bet called the Lucky 99. It pays based on which sides get a natural 9. For the full rules and analysis, please click the link I just left.

The question for the poll is would you bet the Lucky 99 if playing baccarat anyway?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Introduction
Baccarat 99 is a baccarat side bet...

That should be Lucky 99 is a baccarat side bet...


I知 not a baccarat player, but based on the edge alone, I値l pass.

But one question: since the player and banker have equal odds of getting the natural 9, any idea why the hugely different payouts?

On a side note, thanks for reminding me. I値l send you my SuperBowl Big Game picks in a PM soon. 🤪

I'd play it, but only if they offered a better paytable. One of the bets on Infinate Fortune Baccarat offers 45:1 for a Natural 9 vs Natural 8. If the top payout on this was 35:1, I'd play. That would put the house edge around 8%.
