How Do Bets Work In Online Casinos?

Betting is claiming that a certain game condition will occur and that you are willing to dare and risk a sum of money to prove it so; should you be right you will recover back your bet and your win. If you were wrong your bet will be lost. So technically speaking, placing a bet is buying a right to risk. Games in different casinos have different betting conditions. Bets can have limitations on amount; can cover one or more condition, last one game round or more. Sometimes the bets are forfeited, pushed (returned to the player) or removed back as unresolved.

In some games you can split your bet between a numbers of conditions or add to your previous bet with another supplemental bet. Some games introduce so called ante bets. An ante bet is a sort of preliminary bet that buys you a right to enter the game; once playing you will be wagering additional bets. An example of such game is Caribbean (“Stud”) Poker. The important thing to know about bets is the payoff. When it is said that bet X wins under condition A with payoff rate M:N and loses under condition B, it means that you bet N dollars on condition A. In case condition A occurs, your bet amounted N is returned to you along with your win M times N.

The actual values of M and N are defined in the game rules as a result of complicated statistical calculation of odds of conditions A and B occurring. For example, if in a game with two dice you make a 20 dollar bet that the next and only next roll will roll out a total of 8 with payoff 2 to 1 then in case you win you will receive back your 20 dollars plus 40 dollars of your win, totaling to 60 dollars. A bet is called even if it is paying out 1 to 1 that is you receive back your bet and a win that amounts to the bet you wagered.

A bet is called double if it is paying out 2 to 1 that are you receive back your bet and a win that amounts to twice the bet you wagered. The example above shows how a double bet works. Since the bet is a risk its true value (your guide to making a decision whether you should risk with this particular bet or not) depends not just on its price and payoff but also on odds of winning the bet, the house edge for that bet in that particular game, with or without consideration of previous games, table limits and other mathematical factors. Placing bets varies from game to game and from game round to game round and is a matter of strategy.
