Introduction To Dragon Tiger Online

Dragon Tiger Online will be about as straightforward as gambling gets. It is, in essence, a two-card variant of baccarat. In particular, two cards are pulled, one for the Dragon and another one for the Tiger. The player wagers on which of the two will be higher. On the individual cards, there are also a few proposition bets. I haven’t seen the game, not even in Macau, but it’s rumored to be in Cambodia. This can also be played at online casinos that use LCB services, such as 96ACE, and applications brands like One Touch.

Rules Of Dragon Tiger Online

  1. There are no limits to the amount of standard decks that can be used. For the purposes of this analysis, I’ll use the number eight.
  2. Cards are ranked similarly to poker, with the exception that aces have always been low.
  3. Each Dragon and Player hand receives a single card.
  4. The main wager is still on which hand will receive the higher card.
  5. Numerous different proposition bets are possible, as described further below.

Dragon/Tiger

If the chosen hand receives the higher card, the Dragon and Tiger bets will win. Ties lose half of their points. The house edge as in the following return table is 3.73%.

Tie

When the Dragon and Tiger cards have the same rank, the Tie bet wins. Wins payout at an 8 to 1 ratio. The house edge in the table below is 32.77% (ouch!).

Big/Small

The player can wager on whether a specific card would be higher or lower than seven. When the selected card is a seven, the wager will be lost. Wins payout at the same rate as losses. The house edge is 7.69 percent, as shown in the table below.

Even/Odd

Such a pair of bets is mathematically equivalent to both the Small and Big wagers discussed above. Aces, I believe, are a loss for both bets, and some other ranks will be divided into 6 evens and six odds. The Odds and Evens bets are not available at all tables.

Red and Black

This pair of bets is also mathematically equivalent to the Small and Big bets discussed above. Both bets lose on the sevens. The Odds and Evens bets are not available at all tables.

Suit

The player can wager on the suit of a specific card. Wins are paid out at a 3 to 1 ratio. However, if somehow the selected card is precisely seven, the wager will be forfeited. The house edge is 7.69 percent, as shown in the table below.

Two Red & Two Black

Asia Live Tech includes two side bets: both cards would be red either both cards would be black. A tie results in a loss of half the cards, regardless of their color. On Two Black, the math is evidently the same. The house edge in the bottom right cell is 3.73%.

These wagers are obviously prone to card counting (shut the hell up, Wiz!).

One Red & One Black

Asia Live Tech also has a side bet that pays out if one of the cards is red while the other is black. Regardless of the color of the cards, A results in a half-loss. The house edge in the bottom right cell of the table below is 3.73%

Suggestion

For all the non-counter who’d rather play, I recommend the DragonTiger online bets because they have the lowest house edge. Please keep in mind that the odds in baccarat are much better. The counter will quickly notice that perhaps the small, big, as well as suit bets are all highly countable.
