IntroductionI first noticed Jackpot Baccarat at Harrah's Las Vegas on February 16, 2016. It is a simple, poker-based side bet based on the first four cards dealt in a game of baccarat.
The Jackpot Baccarat side bet pays based on the poker value of the initial two cards dealt to both the Player and Banker hands. The pay table is shown below.
|Mini royal||250 to 1|
|Four of a kind||75 to 1|
|Straight flush||50 to 1|
|Three of a kind||15 to 1|
|Flush||10 to 1|
|Straight||5 to 1|
|Two pair||4 to 1|
|Pair of aces||2 to 1|
|Pair 10's to K's||Push|
The following table shows my analysis of Jackpot Baccarat, based on eight decks of cards.
