casino typically will require you to bet at least
$20 in order to participate in a game of big table
Online Baccarat Games. The maximum may be as little
as $1,000 in a real "sawdust" joint, to
$20,000 in some of the larger Las Vegas casinos, many
of whom will have Online Baccarat Games pits cordoned
off for the purpose of catering to the player who
wishes to bet at this level.
Whatever the sign posted limit is players can usually
make special arrangements to go much higher than this.
It's not unheard of for a player to negotiate a $200,000
maximum. From the casino's perspective, the more that
is bet the more money they make, but they must also
be careful that a fantastic run of good luck for a
player does not wipe out their resources (this does
happen occasionally). Sometimes groups of highly-paid
executives will monopolize a table and all bet on
one side. Since they are all betting on the same hand,
the casino is effectively running the same risk as
if one player was betting the total amount.
To give you an idea of the expected wins and losses
casino staff expect, you might be surprised to find
that a player winning $250,000 barely raises an eyelid
in most of the Las Vegas Strip casinos. Most casino
managers instruct their staff to contact them only
if a player is winning $1 million or more.
you have time to prepare for the game, a cheap and
fast option is to go to a fabric store and buy a length
of fine felt, preferably pool table felt. Many gambling
supply stores also sell table felt by the yard. Cut
the felt to a size that allows a good overhang, iron
the folds out, drape it over an existing table, and
try to anchor it underneath with some thumbtacks or
elastic fasteners. It's a little sloppy, but it works
like a charm.
