Poker770 has introduced a new feature for adding new betting value to each game, allowing players to make side bets on the cards while they’re in the midst of their regular online poker game.
Players can made BackBet side bets on the next card’s color, number, or if it will be a face card. Poker770 claims to be not only one of the select few online poker rooms that lets players make real money side bets on the cards, but the first one to do it as well.
Poker 770 provides a full Flash-based video introduction to the BackBet tool, including a step-by-step tutorial on how to use it.
Players can find BackBet under its own tab in their Poker770 lobby menu, listed as New BackBet! You can also activate the BackBet tool from a convenient icon at the top of your online poker table screen.
Once activated, the BackBet window will open up as a sidebar on your screen. Then the next possible bets you can place appear between each deal of the cards. You can Bet the next pocket card; Bet the board cards; or place a folded card bet. For each bet you see the odds and have a field to enter your bet. Then the total possible win (based on your bet times the odds) appears. To confirm, you click Bet and then watch the action continue.
If you win the bet, the amount you win is shown in green and added t your chip stack. And at the very bottom of the Poker770 BackBet window is listed, for your convenience, your entire side bet Betting History.
