Poker Bet at Bodog Casino Online

Poker Bet is one of the most realistic fixed odds online casino games based on poker. It is offered at Bodog Casino and can be accessed from the instant play platform. It is listed under Specialty Games in the instant play games menu and can be played in both real money and practice formats.

The gaming sequence exactly replicates a cash poker game. There are six seats at the table. The dealer deals each one of them the two pocket cards. The cards are dealt face up. Then the dealer deals the flop, turn and river. The seat holding the highest ranking poker hand wins. The betting is completely different from poker cash games in Bodog Poker Bet. The "players" seated at the table do not place wagers as in a poker game. The online casino player places wagers on a number of fixed odd bets.

The player can bet on one or more of the seats winning the hand. At the start of a new game the odds offered for each seat is 5.50 to 1. The player can also bet on the hand ranking of the winning hand. The payouts are related to the probability of those rankings winning. High Card, Four of a Kind, Straight Flush and Royal Flush pay out at 101.00 to 1. Though High Card has the lowest hand ranking it has the highest pay out because the winning hand will in almost all cases be higher ranked than High Card. The remaining poker hand rankings pay out between 3.01 to 1 for Two Pairs and 8.53 to 1 for Flush. Two very interesting bets are also offered in Bodog Poker Bet. One is the winning turn card color. The payout is 1.84 to 1 for both black and red. If the turn card does not figure in the final hand then all bets in this section lose. The other bet is the winning river card suit. The payout is 3.75 to 1 for any suit chosen. If the river card does not figure in the final hand then all bets in this section lose.

Bodog Poker Bet heats up after the pocket cards are dealt. Based on the cards dealt, the odds for all bets change because of the revised outcome possibilities. Players can place additional bets at this stage. The same process repeats after the flop and turn. If some hand rankings are ruled out at any stage bets, will not be accepted for that hand ranking. For example if one seat is dealt One Pair as the pocket cards then the High Card hand ranking is no longer applicable. Proficient poker players will be able to do their calculations and go for bets that offer the best odds. Novice poker players will have to go with their gut feeling.

Bodog Poker Bet has a very systematic structure. When the player selects a bet a display box opens up with the default bet at $1. The player can change this stake by using the Up and Down arrows. The return amount is automatically calculated for the stake and the odds and displayed in the box. The player then has to confirm the bet. Confirmed bets with all relevant parameters are displayed in a tabular form on the screen. After the game is complete all winning bets are marked as Winner and payouts, if any, are made to the player.
