The Future
 

By removing the commission and doubling the amount of hands a high roller could play at the same time, the casinos would reduce their variance and stabilize their profits. Another idea to increase profits is this: when a tie occurs, instead of returning all money to player or bank bettors, decide the winner according to the value of the first card dealt by determining which is closest to 9. For example: Player and bank both have three-card totals of 6. The banker received a 9 as his first card and the player received a 5, so in this instance the bank would win. This means that the 10 percent of all hands that are ties no longer represent a 0 percent investment for the house. The house edge remains static, but the casino's profits become greater.

If the first cards of the player and the bank hand are equal, then the values of the second cards in each hand should be determined. Also, no money changes hands in the unlikely event that these hands tie.

A final suggestion is to introduce the "surrender" rule popularized by Atlantic City online blackjack games and roulette. In Online Baccarat Games, the surrender option would allow a player to surrender his bet after the first four cards have been dealt if he forfeits half his stake in exchange for the return of the rest of the wager, taking no further part in the hand. This assumes that no natural has been dealt. In online blackjack games, the introduction of the surrender rule has shown that all sides benefit. The casinos benefit from the ordinary overuse of such an option. The players benefit because they are allowed to make their own decisions, regardless of how incorrect those decisions may be. The one player in one hundred who is skilled enough to use the option only in the right circumstances also benefits, although this will not allow him to threaten the casinos' profits, since the right circumstances to use such an option in Online Baccarat Games are quite rare.
