Bet on Poker Betting Sites

Bet on Poker is a live dealer TV game based on Texas Hold'em. Unlike a traditional live poker game, you are not betting against players or a dealer. Instead, bettors can wager on fixed-odds betting outcomes. 

As the game progresses, the odds change to reflect how each hand is performing. For full details on how to play and the best strategies to use, read our full guide.

How to play Bet on Poker

Bet on Poker is played with a standard deck of 52 cards that are manually shuffled by the dealer. For visibility purposes, these cards are much bigger than standard playing cards. Here's how the game plays out:

  • Dealing phase: The game starts with the dealer dealing 12 cards to the player positions. There are 6 positions in total - with each position receiving two cards each. 

  • Betting phase: Once all cards are dealt, bettors may place their wagers based on the drawn cards. At this stage in the game, you can bet on all six hands or specific hand combinations. The betting interval lasts about a minute giving you plenty of time to choose.

  • Flop: Once the betting phase is over, the dealer will draw three cards. Players will once again be able to bet - with the odds adapting to the new cards on the table. The betting interval will end after around 40 seconds.

  • Turn: After the flop betting interval, a fourth card will be drawn - followed by one final betting interval. At this point, some hands may be locked - meaning no more bets can be placed on them. This is your last betting opportunity - so use it wisely.

  • River: After the final betting phase, the river card will be drawn - ending the game round. The winning hand will be highlighted and the dealer will shuffle the deck for the next game. 

To place a bet, you will need to choose a betting option - which will add it to your bet slip. You can now select how much you wish to wager. The possible winnings of the bet will be displayed below the total bet. Once you are happy, press the "Place Bet" button to finalise the wager.

Bet on Poker Betting Options

There are two ways to play Bet on Poker. You can either bet on one or more of the six-player hands. Or you can bet on combinations. Here is a breakdown of the betting categories.

In this category, you can simply choose one of the six hands to bet on. The odds of each hand depends on what cards are dealt in the first place. These values change as more cards are dealt. If a hand has a lock symbol - this means it has no chance of winning and is therefore exempt from betting.

You can also bet on the possibility of certain poker hands appearing. Once again, the odds of each combination depends on the cards that are dealt. If a combination has a lock symbol next to it, that means that this combo is now impossible to appear. Here are the combinations you can bet on:

  • High card
  • One pair
  • Two pairs
  • Three of a kind
  • Straight
  • Flush
  • Full house
  • Four of a kind
  • Straight flush
  • Royal flush   

Bet on Poker Strategy

The best Bet on Poker strategy is to wager on the strongest hand from the start. This means betting before the flop and predicting how a hand could eventually turn out. 

By betting early, you get attractive payout potential for the six hands. If you need some guidance, the respective odds placed by the software gives you a good idea of which is the strongest hand.

However, it's important to also choose hands that may have some potential once the flop is dealt. Hands that may form a straight or flush are certainly tempting. 

One final tip - if in doubt, save your money. You can always wait for a better opportunity to come around in the next game session.
