Here in the US, table games obviously have minimum wagers and maximum wagers. These limits apply to each wager individually.

I've been told in Australia, the standard for Baccarat is different. They still have minimum individual wagers, but instead of a maximum wager, they have a maximum "differential", meaning the spread between the Player bets and the Banker bets.

For example, if the maximum differential is $25,000, one bettor can literally bet $10,000,000 on Banker, just as long as the Player bets total at least $9,975,000.

Any particular reason we don't see it done that way in the US? Or do we in some places even?

What if there's only one bettor playing at the table? $25K max bet either way?

    That would be my understanding, yes.

    Differentials are the order of the day in Macau.

    They make sense to me and I don't understand why you don't see them in Vegas.
    It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

    You could also use differentials for even money roulette bets. One side pays off the other, minus the differential, except when the ball lands in green, in which case the house rakes both sides
    Itís all about making that GTA

    Think of the comps that DarkOz could generate with a differential system. :-)
    The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

    Iíll give an example why. For simplicity, letís say Ďdifferentialí is capped at $100k. Player A bets $60k on banker. Player B bets $50k on banker. Player C bets $90k on banker. Player D bets $30k on banker. What does the dealer do? All players dropped to $25k? All players dropped to 100/230 of their proposed bet? Good luck with the 100/230 multipleÖ..

    At a couple off-Strip casinos Iíve seen an ďno aggregate payout over $30,000Ē at the public Baccarat tables where the table max is $10,000.
