Chemin-du-fer is a player-banked game, so it is highly unlikely they would offer it in a North American casino. Macau-style baccarat usually just means the players are allowed to handle the cards. No drawing decisions are involved.
There is lots of EZ Baccarat, commission free (Ante free), in CA. Unfortunately, the Banker bet has a house edge of 1.02%, so it is not 1.06%, so it is a better game and you explicitly didn't ask for that. The Player bet is the same.Quote: Ahigh
Anyone know of a commission'd bac with 1.24% player and 1.06% banker in CALIFORNIA?
Has anyone analyzed whether Chemin de Fer is a game that can be APíd with counting? I recognize Baccarat canít be as a practicable matter. But the draw decision in CdF might swing the analysis.Quote: Wizard
That sounds to me like Chemin de Fer. Calling it "Macau style" baccarat I think is a misnomer. They play baccarat the same way in Macau as here, save sometimes for the use of promotional chips. Maybe they used to play that way in Macau. I think that is how baccarat was played everywhere not too long ago, but everyone hit the Player hand on 5 or less, so the casinos eventually dropped the pretext of offering a choice, and forced all the drawing rules. I'm not entirely sure of this, and welcome correction if I'm in error.
