Do systems work in baccarat?

There are many people who claim to be able to beat baccarat and argue that the game can have mathematical odds in favor of the players if they use certain techniques, betting schemes, card counting, or other such strategies. Unfortunately, these systems do not work and I will elaborate as to why they do not work. Betting techniques, while viable for certain games like blackjack when used in conjunction with things like card counting and able to give a positive return on the money in the long term, do not work in baccarat for one simple reason; the complementary card counting does not work.

Card counting is uses the information about the cards that have already been drawn to reveal information about what is left remaining in the deck but there are problems with these techniques. First, they are extremely difficult to do especially when casino use large numbers of decks. The more decks there are the more permutations are possible and the more difficult card counting becomes. Playing in an online scenario makes card counting impossible because online systems use a pseudo-RNG (random number generator) to simulate a deck and the cards within and, as such, is reset every time a new hand is played. While baccarat may not have any long term winning system to give players an edge over the house, baccarat has the lowest house edge of any casino game that exists. With such a small edge, it is easier to win money playing baccarat by following simple rules than any other casino game.
