    Default Winning Big at Baccarat



    The Star: How a ‘lucky half dozen’ high rollers have dented the casino’s profits


    February 17, 2016


    THEY are the “lucky half dozen’’ — six ultra high-stakes gamblers, known as whales in the gaming industry, whose winning streak on the baccarat tables at The Star has crushed the casino’s profits.

    The casino’s boss yesterday revealed the six “very, very lucky” Asian high rollers, who were each gambling up to half a million dollars a hand at baccarat, made a huge dent in The Star Entertainment Group’s actual VIP gaming revenue.

    The casino’s net profit has tumbled 38 per cent to $60 million for the six months to December and its actual win rate is the lowest on record for the first half of the financial year.

    I watched a little baccarat action not to long ago. Why and the hell do the Asians who play that game bend the fuck out of the cards without the American pitboss saying a word? If a blackjack player bent the fuck out of the cards like these Asian baccarat players do, I think the casino would say a player was marking the cards and they would probably want to throw them in jail or arrest them for a crime. I don't get it, yet that is. Maybe I need to ask these Asians playing the game as to why they do such a thing, instead of the pit. But of course I would never ask the pit that. I want to get in there and start bending the living shit out of the casinos cards, that's the way it makes me feel when I see these Asians doing it, I want to leave a permanent crease on their cards. I'll destroy their decks.

    Tens of millions of Asian Baccarat players bend the cards. That is the Asian way. That's what they all do. If the casinos don't give a shit, why should you? If it annoys you, don't play with Asians at the table or better still, play another game. Nobody cares if some cards are bent... least of all me. There are much bigger fish to fry.

    Now, in that story, the casino guy says the six Asians won millions because they got lucky. I suggest these lucky dudes have a whole lot going for them other than luck or cheating.

    Arnold Snyder The article says the casino's profits dropped to $60million, which was a 38% drop. That means the profits should have been $91million. So six gamblers won $31million over six months of play, an average of $5million winnings for each player. Since they were betting $500K per hand, each gambler was up an average of ten bets. The casino was only behind by only 60 bets all total. This is not a significant result. It's normal fluctuation, not even exceptional luck.

    Watching the Asian baccarat players bend the hell out of the casinos cards does not bother me Katz. With each bend and crease I observed it seemed like the pit boss was taking it personally, like he wanted to say something or do something but was helpless in the matter, only left to watch them bend their cards at their will. I'm not a baccarat player myself and have not studied the game to any length. I realize what the Asians do on the baccarat table is NOT carried over to the blackjack or poker tables. I have to wonder if there is something to them bending the cards in baccarat as not every card I observed got bent and some got bent in a different fashion compared to other cards.
