Casinos cheat you at Baccarat

Do the casinos cheat you at Baccarat or have they in the past?

I usually don’t keep track of the third card conditions and when it should come out for the player and banker because I am too lazy to learn it myself. Should I trust the dealers to be honest and correct on doing the math and playing by the rules. Would the Pit Boss and surveillance team be honest enough to correct the dealers mistake if/when they do pick up on it themselves or they let favorable mistakes slide? I would appreciate answers from every knowledgeable and honest person. Thank you.

I cannot confirm or deny any allegations of cheating or wrongdoing by casinos or their dealers in Baccarat. However, it is worth noting that casinos are heavily regulated and subject to strict laws and regulations to ensure fairness and transparency in their operations.

In Baccarat, the game’s rules and procedures are standardized and closely monitored to prevent cheating and ensure fair play. Dealers are trained to follow specific protocols when dealing cards and resolving hands, and pit bosses and surveillance teams are responsible for monitoring gameplay to ensure that everything is above board.

While mistakes can happen in any game, it is unlikely that dealers or casino staff would intentionally cheat players in Baccarat. Doing so would not only violate regulations but also damage the casino’s reputation and potentially lead to legal consequences.

That being said, it is important for players to understand the rules and procedures of the game to ensure that they are being treated fairly. While players do not need to be experts in the third card rules, it is important to have a basic understanding of how the game is played and to be aware of any unusual or suspicious behavior by dealers or other casino staff.

Ultimately, the best way to ensure fair play in Baccarat is to choose reputable and licensed casinos that are subject to strict regulatory oversight. This can give players peace of mind and allow them to enjoy the game without worrying about the possibility of cheating or wrongdoing.

  1. casinos have to run fair games – they have no intention of cheating you because you are already playing a game that favors the house –

    plus in Baccarat you can bet on both sides player and banker – so cheating one side – could help the other side – and unless the table isnt full and only has 1 or 2 people and they both have bets on EITHER player or BANKER there is nothing for the house to gain by making mistakes and favoring player or banker

    Over time with house edge – both bets are favored to lose money –

    Casinos do not try to purposely CHEAT players of the their money when in theory they are cheating players legally

    Dealers are human and not perfect – if they make a mistake and draw to player or banker when they shouldnt – if a player DOESNT call them on the rule of the game – if a pit boss or floor supervisor isnt watching and they rarely are especially watching for dealer error – the odds that Surveillance will call down and report the error and make them pay everyone for mistake is EXTREMELY RARE

    Surveillance is looking to make sure people are not purposely in collusion and trying to cheat the game – if a dealer makes a rookie mistake, odds that someone will catch it and correct it is Slim

    This type of thing happens VERY infrequently – most dealers KNOW ALL the rules of the games they deal and are very competent.

    As a player I would recommend you know the rules – and if you think they messed up – dont be afraid to speak up – its your money on the line – and dealer mistakes are usually honest mistakes and they arent trying to cheat you . If you speak up, worse you can be is wrong – that’s better than being silent and losing money on a honest mistake.

    the casinos make enough money fast enough – don’t be afraid to open your mouth if you believe they made an error!
