Roulette, and craps, most NJ online casinos now support a flock of alternative table games.
From those commonly spread on Atlantic City casino floors such as Baccarat and Three Card Poker, to lesser known variants like Hi-Lo Solitare, these highly entertaining games generally boast more side bets, and higher maximum payouts than traditional table games, typically at the expense of a slightly higher house edge.
There is one favorable exception to this rule, and that’s Baccarat.
The version of the game where the player pays 5 percent commission on winning Banker bets returns nearly 99 percent on Banker plays, and just over 98.75 percent on Player bets.
That’s even better odds than players get on Pass/Don’t Pass craps bets.
Non-commission Baccarat, where players only win 1:2 on Banker bets where the Banker wins with an 8, returns slightly less on Banker wins (98.54 percent), but otherwise features the same payouts as traditional Baccarat games.
Other bets, such as the Tie bet, and the EZ Baccarat Dragon 7 and Panda 8 bets are best avoided, as the return to player for these wagers ranges from a paltry 85.64 to an unimpressive 92.38 percent.
The very best Baccarat games can be found at Betfair Casino.
Coming in second place is a game that’s bound to resonate with NJ online poker players, and that’s Texas Hold’em Bonus Poker.
This game tasks players with making a better five card hand than the dealer.
The house edge on the primary game is a mere 2.04 percent — low by carnival game standards.
However, players are advised to dodge the sucker side bet.
