EZ Baccarat – Casino Game that You Should Know


EZ baccarat rules vary a little bit from the classic baccarat rules. In regular live baccarat, you get payouts at odds of 19 to 20 but in the EZ version, you will have your payouts made at even odds (1 to 1). Don’t be happy yet, this is not the kind of baccarat that you will have a house edge advantage on. Why is this so?

If the banker makes a win with seven points and holds three cards, this is not considered as a push which means that you will not get paid. This means that about 4.9% will be taken which means that the house edge on EZ is slightly lower than in the classical baccarat.

The objective of the game is for the player to have a hand value of the highest points of 9 or close to 9.
The player has to make a wager on the banker’s hand, the player hand or a tie
The customer may have an insurance bet on the “Dragon 7” of “Panda 8”.
The rules of the house stipulate who has the permission to remove cards from the shoe, the order of those allowed to remove cards and if the cards will be dealt face down or up.
The player hand will be the first to be resolved and only two cards are drawn the third card will be drawn as determined by the third-card rule

Dragon 7 and Panda 8 Bet options

In this live dealer baccarat variant, there are two unseen side bet options; the Dragon 7 and the Panda 8. This bet wins if the dealer’s three-card makes a total of 7 points but otherwise it will lose. This kind of bet can payout at 40 to 1 odds and has a house edge of 7.61%. In Panda 8 the player will reach a card value of 8 using 3 cards and will win the hand. This bet option has odds of 25 and a house edge of 10.17%.
