    Be honest - baccarat roadmaps

    All live casinos offer baccarat because it's a great live gaming fit (natural one to many game) and they pretty much all display the road maps (you know those little charts filled with colored dots)...eg

    i don't have any idea about the bottom ones but i do check the big road which is easy to understand. You can see if there are any big runs. So if i join the table and there's been a 5 Player win run i'll be inclined to bet Banker and visa versa. Bit of a martingale type theory - runs don't last forever

    Top Dog if you want to know how to construct the BigEye, Small and Cockroach, have a read of:

    Your use of the big road raises a critical point...the presumption that past results in baccarat actually impact future outcomes. I'm neither a baccarat expert nor do I know the roadmaps inside-out but I have to say I'm a skeptic when it comes to believing they are of any legitimate use. As to why the casinos provide them - same as bet history indicators in roulette. Armed with more information a player can believe he/she has a better chance of success, or can better employ a chosen strategy - albeit a flawed one.

    In roulette for example, lets say the last 10 spins have landed on black. The probability the next (11th) outcome is black is still 18/37 (assuming Euro wheel) because each spin is a unique event.

    Baccarat's a little different because the game is dealt from a depleting shoe so past outcomes will have an impact on future deals. I just don't believe this impact is quantifiable and exploitable - and not because I've done any analysis - this just seems to be the consensus of many smart people who have. What is not in dispute is that this is a very skinny house edge game (as well as being simple to play!), and for that reason alone you're better off at the baccarat table than most other games.

    As for me... I need only 2 modes, displaying the game history:

    simple Player-Banker

    and Big-Small (4 cards (without any extra-cards) = Small; blue color, 5-6 cards = Big; red color)

    But since the winter 2014 Playtech decided not to show Big-Small history anymore. Bets are offered, but no history is shown. All other road maps are totally useless IMHO. Unfortunatelly, Evolution doesn't offer such kind of sidebets. Only pairs.

    I always say to dealers baccarat is like glorified tossing a coin with a couple more betting options.
