    Don't know if this has been posted yet or not, but for those Baccarat enthusiasts that don't mind playing with a video dealer, Caesars ($1) min and Venetian ($5) min have these games. Cocktail waitress at Caesars said it was less than 2 weeks old.

    I've been playing alot, easy way to relax a couple of hours away, cocktail service on the slow side as I think most slot areas in Ceasars are but if you like Baccarat, trust these video games, and want to play a minimal amount, I think this is the ticket.

    Four betting terminals on each side of sceen and each side is independent, results aren't the same. Players card accepted but to earn 1 point takes over $40 in action. No dragon bets but something called "Bet The Score".

    Fair amount of people stand around and watch, seems like they are trying to figure the game out. I've been asked many times while playing, "What is this? "

    If anyone knows of this game elsewhere in town, appreciate a response, will be leaving Caesars in a couple of days but still want to play if one is close by

    Sounds interesting. I presume they take the 5% juice on Banker bets to the penny. This would be very good for the low, low roller playing $1 at the Caesars game.

    I saw one of these in Palazzo a few weeks ago. The thing was huge - I thought it was one of those big community slots at first. Pretty cool looking.

    The Venetian has had one for a while. I've played it a few times, but will have to try out the one at CP.

    I may have to try this out. Baccarat has me intrigued me but I don't really want to play very high stakes.

    I'll defnitely check it out - sounds like a great time waster and a way to lose my money much slower...while enjoying some drinks. How's the drink service at those machines?

    Played this one at the Venetian with my wife while we were there last most of the time.. converted her from BJ to bac on this game. The only thing I do not like about this game is that after every hand, the deck is reshuffled, resulting in a large amount of ties (and possibly less pattern predictability?).

    I prefer mini-bac but if this machine is up its a great way to get some drinks and smoke a cigar.

    Does anyone know where else they have these machines besides Caesars and Venetian?

    Also forgot to mention.. we played the video bac machine at Venetian for about 2-3 hours and a casino host came over and asked for our players cards. We did not have any, so they took our drivers license and gave us one, along with free Venetian t-shirts. Not a bad comp.

    Reshuffling or not reshuffling will not create more ties. And there is no predictability about the game at the top of a shoe or deep in to it. This is part of the fun of the game, of course, guessing at 'patterns', but there is zero math to back up that there ARE any predictive patterns at all.

    My wife did and I kept getting upset with her for betting tie, and she kept winning :beer:

    I think she hit 6 ties in about 4 hours of play.. I've never seen that many on a table. For some reason I just don't trust computers as much as the real table.

    So basically, you aren't being dealt from a fair deck? They rig the deck or the spins? That's foul. Why anyone would play something like that....

    Nevada law requires that video representations of playing cards follow the same odds as real cards in a live game.
