Live Bet on Poker is one of the games that Betconstruct is recognized for. It represents an alternative to numerous live blackjack and live roulette games on offer, a card game that you only have the chance to experience at selected online live casinos. We all know that poker is not as common at live dealer gambling platforms, and Betconstruct is making its contribution with an alluring version of the popular single-deck Texas Hold’em format.
The key characteristic of Live Bet on Poker is the fact that the players are facing the casino and not each other. The dealer is the opponent of all the participants, and the objective is to compose the highest 5-card poker combination which beats the dealer’s hand. Unlike brick and mortar poker games where a pot is provided, prizes are paid out according to specific odds which need to be continuously recalculated as the game unfolds.
Join the game and take a seat; since this is a multiplayer game, each box, or seat, or playing position, can have an unlimited number of players wagering on it. The gameplay is divided into four rounds of betting: Initial betting round (bet before any cards are dealt), PreFlop betting round (bet after the players’ first two cards are dealt), PreTurn betting round (bet after the flop has been dealt, that is to say, the 3 community cards) and PreRiver betting round (bet after the turn has been dealt, which is the fourth community card). The final 5-card hand is a result of the two initial cards and five community cards from the Board.
At the very beginning of the round, each player needs to pick up a chip from the chip tray and place it on the position they wish to wager on. During betting time, bets can be made and cancelled. Bets for each round are valid for that round only and don’t affect any bets made prior or after. When the River card is dealt the 5-card hand is complete and the winners are announced. There are various side bets available, from betting on the rank of the winning combination to betting the number of red and black cards dealt.
Partly based on luck, and partly on the player’s skill and understanding of the cards on the table, Live Bet on Poker is an excellent alternative for poker fans that don’t mind slower rounds and appreciate additional betting options. As always, the Betconstruct gaming interface and menus are easy to understand and navigate, but, objectively, the game is perhaps more suited for experienced card game players due to its complexity and different gameplay stages.
