Baccarat en Banque
This variation of Baccarat can be found
in some European casinos. The goal of the game is the
same - to get as close to 9 as possible, but the difference
is that only the house plays the role of banker.
In other versions of the game (Classic or Chemin de
Fer) the player with the most money is usually declared
the banker or the deal rotates among the players by
passing the shoe counter-clockwise around the table,
and each "Player" alternate being the "Banker".
Since the Casino is a Banker, the bets can be much larger
than when another player is acting as the bank. Also,
the game can be played with as few as one player (in
Chemin de Fer there must be two players at least to
players to start the game).
Three hands are dealt: One bank hand and two player
The players are allowed to bet on one
or both of the player hands, but never on the dealer's
There are no particular drawing rules,
it's completely optional. Sometimes, the dealer will
follow the American baccarat rules, other times he will
alter them to enhance his winning chances.
Some casinos may charge a lower commission than 5%.
The payouts on the tie bet may vary from casino to casino
- sometimes it's paid 9:1.
Many say that Baccarat en Banque many be one of the
few games left where it is possible to win with a good
degree of consistency. The reason for this is that the
banker’s strategy is often directed at the side
of the table that wagers the most money. Consequently,
it may be lucrative to bet on the side of the table
that is wagering the least amount of money. The bank
will then, theoretically, be playing a less than perfect
strategy against your favoured hand.
It is wise to bet on the second player rather than
the third because the second player has had the advantage
of seeing player one’s third card if he decides
to draw. If both players are wagering equal amounts
of money, the correct strategy on a five should be similar
to that in Chemin de Fer i.e., draw 82% of the time.
Further suggested strategies would be as follows.
1. Bet on the second player when one third or less
of the total money wagered is on this side of he able.
2. Only follow the above drawing strategy when you are
the active player.
Skill of the banker
While the possibility of card counting to gain advantage
may exist in this variation, one should remember that
this may work also for the banker. It is therefore inadvisable
to play against a banker who seems to study the cards
intently and seems to pay close attention to the mannerisms
of the players.
