Having the ability to both back and lay outcomes in games where decision making and timing are crucial is great fun.

The exchange games can offer variety to anyone’s online casino experience as well as allowing users to develop strategies which could see them win big.

What exchange games can I play?

Perhaps the most popular of the exchange games is the very sleek looking New Texas Hold’ Em and it’s here which best captures what Betfair’s unique game type is all about. The way the game works is different to that of normal Hold’ Em, rather than being given one hand, there will be four hands visible on your screen. Betting takes place during every stage so that’s before the deal, pre-flop, after the flop and after the turn. You have around 15-20 seconds each time to place your bets on any combination of the four hands. The exchange games allow you to lay hands, not just back them, although in order to do this you will need to select the ‘expert view’ at the top of the screen.

As you are betting against other players rather being up against fixed odds with a slight house edge, you can find value in the market and exploit it to your advantage. Exchange games are all about strategizing and it can be the perfect choice for any player looking to make a long term profit from online casinos. If you are finding you don’t quite have enough time to place your bets then you should switch to standard Texas Hold’Em which has a slower game speed, giving you around 30 seconds between each betting round.

Most games come with this option of a standard and turbo version, Bullseye Roulette for one, and it’s a game which offers an exciting twist on the old casino classic. There are four rounds each game and each round eight balls are dropped in quick succession. The slot that each ball lands on converts the adjacent three pockets into that colour and number. Don’t worry if it doesn’t make much sense to you now as the very helpful tutorial on the game will make things crystal clear. It’s a frantic game but a thrilling one once you get used to how it works.

For many of the remaining exchange games on offer, rather than having flashy graphics, they are instead far more basic, black and white text based. While not visually impressive, the games are very well explained and the range of bets and their respective odds ae clearly marked. Be sure to read the rules before you play as some games have a unique twist on their more traditional counterparts. Exchange Hi Lo is one example of this as here the computer guesses whether or not the next card will be higher or lower using just a single deck of spades. You bet on whether the computer’s guess is right or wrong by backing or laying its prediction.
