Like many other casino games, live dealer Baccarat is all about chance. Even though one of the hands is called the Player, you are uninvolved in the game itself, and any moves made by that hand or by the Banker are determined by scores and rules. This means strategy cannot be used during play.
Some players like to base their betting decisions on the results of previous rounds, which they can see by viewing the Roads. The Big, Small, Big Eye, and Cockroach roads are different pictorial representations of the results. There’s no guarantee that any patterns will continue, so it’s best to stick to basic tips such as betting on the Banker hand because it has better odds of winning than the Player hand, setting a betting budget and win/loss limits for yourself, and deciding beforehand the length of time for which you’ll play online Baccarat live dealer games.
