If there was a baccarat game that was 0% commission on the banker bet and no other wierd rules aside from normal baccarat rules such as you lose on a tie on 5 or something, nothing like that, would this baccarat game be +EV if you only bet the banker each time? Theorhetically if this game existed and you only played the banker bet you would win long term by betting the banker without any commission or house edge correct?
Thanks for the replies. So does this game as i describe it exist? Since it would have a +EV it would be the best game of bettor vs. the house in the casino, wouldn't it?
How do no commission baccarat games work then, does the house do something to the rules to swing it back in its favor? I've heard people say before that they have seen 0% commision baccarat games.

Yes, the games are CALLED zero commission but more properly should be called DISGUISED commission ... and right then and there I'd walk away from it. You know any casino, on line or physical, needs to have an edge. If the edge is disguised by making rule changes then they are not being frank and honest, so why bother with them.
Good point, thanks for the reply as I had always wondered this.
I played Betfair Zero baccarat and Betvoyager punto banco without house edge.
No zero baccarat from Betfair has only one difference- the commission taken on winning banker bets is only 2.75%.
In Betvoyager's punto banco without house edge the bet on punto is paid 1.0276:1 and the bet on banco is paid 0.973:1.
