Betfair Casino online table games
Here’s a more detailed look at the non-traditional online table games on Betfair:
Betfair’s standard baccarat game is an online version of the same baccarat game you’ll find inside most Atlantic City casinos.
Players bet on whether the banker or player hand will end up closer to a value of nine, or if the hands will be tied.
The dealer deals out two two-card hands: One to the banker spot and another to the player spot. Face cards and 10s have a value of zero. Aces are worth one, and all other cards have the value printed on them. If a hand that adds up to more than 10 points, only the second digit is used.
If the player hand adds up to five or less, the dealer deals out another card. Finally, if the player hand is dealt a third card, the dealer draws again according to a prescribed set of rules for each card.
A 5% commission is charged on winning banker bets.
Live dealer baccarat
The Betfair casino live dealer baccarat game is a hybrid live and online version of baccarat.
It’s got real dealers and real cards. Players bet on a live stream of the game using an online wagering interface. Players can work with the dealer through a messaging feature and ask questions. The minimum bet is $1.
Live dealer baccarat also features a dragon bonus side bet that pays out on natural and big wins.
EZ baccarat (Exclusive)
EZ baccarat is a no-commission version of baccarat. Plus, players can track card patterns because the cards are not shuffled after every hand like other baccarat games.
Additionally, there are side bets available. These side bets include the Dragon 7 that pays 40:1 when the banker hits a three-card seven. Plus, the Panda 8 that pays 25:1 when the player makes a three-card eight.
Poker bet (Exclusive)
Poker bet is a simple online poker game available exclusively on Betfair.
The dealer passes out two cards to each player and the players either bet or fold. The dealer then spreads out three cards in the middle of the table. These are community cards that can be used to make the best five-card poker hand.
There’s another round of betting before a fourth community card is revealed. There is an additional round of betting and then a fifth and last community card is turned over. Players can opt to fold at any time.
Players can use any of the five community cards in addition to either or both of their own cards to make their best five-card poker hand.
Finally, players show hands and the best one wins the pot.
Let it ride
Let it ride is an online version of a casino card game featured at most land-based casinos. The player’s goal is to make the best five-card poker hand using three cards of their own and two community cards.
Players place three equal parts of a bet on three spots. The dealer puts two community cards down in the middle and deals out three cards to the player.
The dealer then gives players two chances to take back one or two-thirds of the bet. Players can fold and take back two-thirds of the bet after the cards are dealt. Plus, players can fold and take back the final third of the bet after the first community card is turned face up.
After that, if the player continues, the second community card is turned face up and hands are paid according to a detailed payout table. Essentially, payouts are based on the strength of the hand, starting with a pair of tens.
There is also an optional three-card bonus side bet that pays based on the strength of the player’s initial three cards.
Betfair Casino has a three-card poker game that’s an online version of the same card game you’ll find inside most Atlantic City casinos.
Here, players try to make a better poker hand than the dealer. Players place a bet and the dealer passes out three cards to each.
Then, the player can choose to either fold or continue. Those continuing must make another wager equal to the original bet. Then it’s showtime and players win if either the dealer has less than a queen-high, or the player holds a better hand.
Three-card poker also offers two optional side bets. Pairs plus pays on pairs or better and six-card bonus pays based on the strength of the best five-card hand combining dealer and player cards.
Hi-Lo solitaire (Exclusive)
Hi-Lo solitaire is another nontraditional table game exclusive to Betfair Casino.
Here, players bet on whether the next card to come off the deck will be higher or lower than the previous one. Players can also bet on the suit and color of the card. The odds change depending on the card the player is faced with.
Players have the option of shuffling the cards at any time and letting it ride, or continuing to play the game until they decide to change.
