Baccarat Pro by Autobetic

  • Greetings BetSelection Community!

    My name is Sid and I’m the founder of Autobetic.com. I’m really excited to have joined this forum and I’m hoping it will allow me to reach out to like-minded people, make new friends, and improve my new Baccarat App. I chose to kick things off here at BetSelection because I felt the Baccarat Forum here had a really interesting and passionate community!

    Besides the usual introduction, I thought the best way to kick things off was to share my motivation behind building the Baccarat Pro App, as well as starting Autobetic.

    I used to go by the moniker PuntPundit a long time ago, and back then I used to write quite a bit for gambling related reading/marketing material - both offline and online.

    My love for gambling goes way back. I played poker professionally (online) for a while (about 3 years part-time, and a year full-time) but I had to stop in 2013 because the authorities in my country (Singapore) outlawed remote gambling.

    I am extremely analytical, mathematical, and data-centric (and I pursued a career in the tech and digital space after poker). So that’s typically the approach I take towards all of my betting pursuits.

    Some of you might already be asking:
    Why would a Poker player build a Baccarat App? Shouldn't you know better?

    Yea, I should. Baccarat is a -EV game (if you don’t know what EV is and if you’re serious about being a better gambler, read my article about Expected Value). It can't be beat at the casino in the long run. The odds are always working against you, even if you catch a break on the good side of variance every now and then.

    So why then? Because of a silly little thing called love.

    I'm marrying the girl of my dreams this July. I met her shortly after I stopped playing poker professionally and got a regular job in 2014. Shortly after we first met, I told her (almost braggingly) about my poker past (which I have always been rather proud of). But she was very disturbed. She said she couldn't be with a gambler. Her father, who had left when she was born, had a gambling problem. He was always concocting strategies, making crazy bets, and chasing the big win - that never came. He always thought he could beat Baccarat. He begged, borrowed, and stole. And then he left without saying goodbye. As far as she was concerned, gambling (especially Baccarat) tore her family apart. Her mom, through much hardship had to raise her alone all while dealing with the debt that her father had left behind. In short, it was rough.

    Being the analytical person that I am, I took a very data-centric argument to the whole thing. I loved gambling and felt that it was a beautiful thing if properly understood and done responsibly. And I wanted to make her understand that.

    I taught her how to play poker (she does at least pretend to enjoy it now), and educated her on gambling theory. I even got her to read some of my blog posts, especially the one explaining Expected Value which I think anyone who gambles on anything should read and comprehend before placing a bet. And then I got to wondering, what could I do to educate people like her Dad (he passed away a few years back, she never got to meet him) in a meaningful way? How could I show people who were researching Baccarat strategies or falling for scam strategy sellers that it wasn't going to work? How could I save another family from going through what hers did?

    I took to Baccarat the same way I had approached Poker. First, by studying the math behind the game, then by researching strategies (including many of those that were and still are being sold online), running my own simulations, and speaking with people who were far more experienced in the matter than I was (like many of you here!). Along the way I made some friends who were extremely intelligent people and yet had fallen for Baccarat scams. All of that turned into a quest to build an App that would not just calculate strategies from a mathematical point of view (which would not account for things like variance) but for a real world scenario. A simulation software that would deal unique hands each time (unlike the Zuma shoes everyone uses) and would be meaningful (and easy) enough to use for seasoned gambling professionals, newbies, and at-risk Baccarat gamblers.

    The result: Baccarat Pro by Autobetic.

    The App is currently available on the iOS App store and we’re working hard to get the Android version up within the next 2-3 months. You can view a demo of how it works here. It's not perfect, but based on all the research I've done it's the best one out there. I'm hoping with your insights, feedback, and experience we can make it even better. After all, there is a lot of Baccarat brain power in here.

    While there is a paid Premium component to the App which unlocks some features, the free version doesn't restrict too much. And if you're using this to help folks who are at-risk of causing harm to themselves or their family, just reach out to me and I'll waive the cost (as well as help in any way I can). The money we make from this simply goes back into creating new Apps (we’re hoping to hit Blackjack, Roulette, and Poker next).

    Thank you for taking the time to read this. I look forward to participating in this forum and connecting with all of you enlightened Baccarat pros! More than anything else, I’m here to learn.

    Vic has also kindly agreed to let Autobetic have it’s own space on BetSelection and I’ll be creating posts to discuss specific issues/topics there as well.

    Lets work together to make the world bet, better.

  • Just went to take a look at the app.  Turns out it is a PC/Mac program and not an app for iOS.

    Close enough.  I'll check it out anyway once I fire up one of the computers.

  • OK, just took the time to install "iTunes" on my reasonably clean desktop.   Not a big fan of Apple software on Windows computers, but what the heck.

    Luckily I do have an Apple account and could log in and futz around trying to figure out how to download the program.

    Although it was listed as free, the download did have me click on "BUY" to get it to do something.

    So, it's not actually on the computer nor can I see it anywhere.

    I'll wait until version 1.02 shows up I guess.

    At least I tried.

    The demo is excellent.  Finally somebody knows how to pace a demo video so you don't die of boredom watching it.  For that I thank you.

  • Hey ADulay,

    Thanks for taking the time to give it a shot!
    Some misunderstanding here - it's an iOS App, not a PC/Mac Desktop one (I don't believe it would work if you download it on your computer). Maybe this happens when you click on the App link while you're on your desktop. Apologies for the confusion!

    The easiest way to do this would be to open up the App Store on your iPhone, search for Baccarat Pro by Autobetic, and download it on your phone right away. There is an In-App purchase for some of the more advanced features but the free version definitely gives you enough to have a proper taste of what the App can do.

    Do let me know if you have any further issues on this front. Happy to help, and I very keenly look forward to your feedback!

    And thanks for the kind note on the App's Demo Video :)

  • When are you releasing the app for ipads?

    Hey james,

    We don't have plans to release a separate iPad version just yet. The current iPhone App does work on the iPad too though. When you search for 'Baccarat Pro by Autobetic' on the App Store using your iPad, simply toggle to 'iPhone Only' on the top left of your screen (it's set at 'iPad Only' by default) and you'll see the App. Download it on your iPad and you're all set.

    The only issue I see with using this version on the iPad is the text on the intro screens (4 introductory screens that only appear the first time you open the App and can be accessed under the 'Help' section on the 'More' tab) is cut off after the first line. Not a major problem though but we're working to have that fixed asap nonetheless.

    Let me know if you encounter any issues with this on your end. Happy to help!

    Thanks for clearing that up.

    Although I do run an iPad, I'm an Android phone guy so I'll just wait for a future release.

    Hey ice789,

    Thanks for the feedback. Our next App update will include the option to set Banker Commission. We're looking to release this along with our Android App by early June.

  • At least in the USA, so many EZ Bac with no commission any longer.
    I have played baccarat in B&M casinos since 1980, Atlantic City, Vegas, Connecticut, S. Fla, Southern Cali and the Midwest.

    Ah yes! EZ Bac. Didn't consider that at all. We'd probably have to code that in at some point....tho quite a bit of work required to add in those Dragon and Panda side bets. Thanks for that reminder alrelax! Darn....such a long way to go to for this App  :stress:


    May you can add an option of paying 50% commission on banker winning on SIX.

    Hey goez, thanks for the suggestion. This isn't part of the current plan...We're coding in the Banker Commission under the 'Settings' tab where users will have to option to input any commission rate they want...we thought this would provide enough flexibility to the user. I've never come across a rule like the one you mentioned (50% comm for B on 6). Care to share which variant of the game this is and where you encountered this? I'd love to learn more about it...and of course possibly try to incorporate it into my App later.

    Gosh you sure do learn something new everyday here! Thank you for all the input through forum posts and private msges so far everyone. Really appreciate all your help in improving my lil App :)

  • Super Six Baccarat, also known at some casinos as Punto 2000, is a baccarat variation with slightly different payouts to traditional baccarat. Just like normal baccarat, you start the game by placing a chip on either the Banker, Player or Tie boxes. The live dealer will then deal to the Banker and Player hands according to normal third card rules. You win if you bet on the correct outcome…Banker, Player win or Tie. Payouts for Player (1:1) and Tie (8:1) bets are the same as for normal baccarat but the payout for Banker wins is different. Instead of paying 0.95:1, in Super 6 Baccarat the Banker win pays 1:1 unless the Banker wins with a score of 6 in which case the payout halves to 0.5:1. There is a side bet offered as an insurance to a Banker 6 win. If you take the Super Six side bet you are betting that the Banker will win with a score of 6 and this side bet pays 12:1 if successful.
    Gambling is not an exact science. It's not for people who like clear black and white figures. It is for the artist who has a sense of stats and who can deal with fuzzy things.
