False Draw An error by the banker or player in standing
or drawing a third card. Not in compliance with the
rules of play.
High Roller A term derived from games using dice,
but used to describe any gambler who bets large sums.
In Online Baccarat Games, one suggested definition
of a large sum was $10,000 on a hand; this was in
the early 1990s. The term usually implies wealth and
social position, along with other aspects of a glamorous
or notorious lifestyle.
House Edge The percentage, on average, of money placed
as bets which will be gained by the casino. For example,
if the house edge on the banker bet in Online Baccarat
Games is 1.06 percent, and $1 million is wagered in
banker bets over a period, the casino would expect
to collect a sum close to $10,600.
Natural A total of 8 or 9.
the easiest and most common way for players to cheat,
by far, is collusion. It's also the most difficult
to detect. Collusion is a situation in which any two
or more players work together to develop an unfair
advantage in a game. One type of collusion occurs
when a player manipulates the deal to favor a partner.
The rule that makes your hand dead if another player
folds his cards into yours, even if it is accidental,
is a protection against collusion, to prevent him
from passing cards to you. But that same rule can
be turned around by cheaters: one could become "frustrated"
and "accidentally" throw his cards into
the victim's hand, thus killing it, and allowing the
cheater's partner to take a pot uncontested. (The
moral of this story is to always protect your cards
by keeping them close to you on the table and protecting
them with a chip.)
