you can only buy in for 2,000 max at a time. It's a 25-1,000 table but minimum bet is 100 when you get the 10%, max bet is 1,000.

Once per day? I'm still thinking there's something you are missing, but it's not impossible everything is how you are suggesting.

A casino i visit in the Caribbean, gives its players on baccarat an extra 10% in chips on buy in.



Are you sure you don't mean 1%?
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

OK OP. I just landed in Barbados after an 11 hour flight. I have my suitcase full of US currency and have brought along my Acme disguise kit and fake ID ( just in case there is any heat in the casino) Now if you'll be so kind as to direct me to the appropriate Island and Casino, I'll meet you there in a couple of hours. We might just be able to own the place before the wizard's mob get here.
Carry a lucky Monkey or something, so I can recognise you :)
If you are enjoying the game, you're already winning.

I have played many years ago in a small casino with a similar promotion. It was 10% on your buy in and it applied to all games (including BJ). If I remember correctly the requirements to keep the 10% was that you have to play at least 2 hours and also there was a minimum bet requirement. The promotion lasted less than 1 month. Small casinos around the world do stupid mistakes like this all the time. But if the mistake is big they soon realise it, when they see that they are losing money.

I did a quick google search of Baccarat Hold % and came out with a 12% Average Hold for Las Vegas for the last 10 years.
So if a Casino gives 10% back on the buy in, that reduces the Hold to almost zero. And that is with zero strategy from any player.
So such a promotion will not last long.

Obviously the best strategy to beat the game is to do the buy in and play as little as possible, like a sinlge hand. But I am pretty sure that there will either official time requirements or even if they are not, if you pull something like this (like playing a single hand) you will not be welcome back again.
So how to play the game depends on any time requirements and tolerence levels of the casino.
But it should be hit as hard as possible as this promotion will not last.

Also, some checking needs to be done if there is any fishing going on. Even though is difficult to do anything fishy with Baccarat.

Just to chime in- I play at 3-4 casinos that I can get a ten percent bonus to start so it's not all that far fetched

yes they make you play minimum 2 hours at 100 minimum bet, and the max buy in is 2,000 so max you get 200$ extra
