betfair Exchange Games Strategy - overall

The key thing to bear in mind when playing betfair Exchange Games is that you're not trying to win a game of Poker or Blackjack or Baccarat, you're trying to beat other players by outhinking and outguessing their moves.

you're not trying to win a game, you're trying to beat other players by outhinking and outguessing them

On each of our betfair Exchange Games strategy pages, we detail the optimal strategy for that particular game, but the above still applies - you're trying to guess what the 'average' player would do in a certain situation and then bet either against or for that position using your own judgement.

To use Blackjack as an example, most new players would probably Hit a 13, thinking it gives them a better chance to win. As we explain in 'How to win at Blackjack - and why most players don't!' that's completely the wrong strategy. If you were playing Blackjack, you would use that knowledge to give you an edge. Playing (or, more accurately, watching) a game of betfair Exchange Games Blackjack, you would use that knowledge of Blackjack strategy to predict that the other players watching the game would bet incorrectly - giving you the edge in a completely different way i.e. you're betting against other players' mistakes!

This is the great attraction of betfair Exchange Games - it's taking the idea of player psychology to a whole new level. The old saying that 'Poker is not a card game with people, it is a people game with cards' is even more appropriate here - to win at betfair Exchange Games you have to understand both the game and the players!


betfair Exchange Games Loyalty Rewards

To encourage players to play the Exchange Games, betfair have incorporated an inventive Rewards scheme called Exclusive Points. There is no sign-up bonus available to Exchange Games players, other than the standard betfair offer, but this is not a problem. As we discuss in 'The Casino Bonus Trap', bonus promotions are a way to attract new players to the casino. They're mainly aimed at Slots players and not really designed for experienced gamblers. By definition, if you're playing betfair Exchange Games, you're not a newcomer to gambling!

Exclusive Points are betfair's way of rewarding loyalty for Exchange Games players. How it works is quite simple: as you play, you earn Exclusive Points. At the end of the month, you receive an Exchange Games bonus with x1 wagering requirement. The bonus you are awarded is determined by the amount of Exclusive Points you earn in the previous calendar month.

Earn a minimum of 100 Exclusive Points in one calendar month to receive a guaranteed bonus on the 1st day of the following month. The more points you earn, the higher the bonus! You'll earn Exclusive Points every time you win or lose £20 on a completed Exchange Games game. NB There's no need to opt-in to receive points.

The following table shows how you can earn a guaranteed bonus, just by playing!

Minimum points threshold Guaranteed Bonus
100 10
250 50
500 100
2,000 250
5,000 500

NB You will need to be a registered player to be eligible for the Exclusive Points scheme. Although we state above that bonuses are not really aimed at serious players, if you're new to betfair, you might as well take advantage of their offers, if only to rip through the wagering by playing Slots!

betfair Exchange Games - details

betfair Exchange Hi Lo

betfair Exchange Hi Lo

Exchange Hi Lo is a fun and entertaining version of the old fairground game HI-LO. The computer uses 1 suit (13 cards) and turns them over one at a time. Prior to turning, the computer predicts whether the following card will be higher or lower than the previous one.

You win by predicting how many cards the computer will get right. You can bet before the game begins and after each correctly predicted card, as often as you like for as long as each game continues. Simple, fun and totally addictive!

betfair Exchange Bullseye Roulette

betfair Exchange Bullseye Roulette

Bullseye Roulette is a fascinating twist on Roulette. Whereas normal Roulette depends on the result of 1 ball falling into one of 37 holes, Bullseye Roulette works in a 4 round game with a total of 18 balls being dropped! The 18 balls are dropped into a traditional roulette wheel, numbers are eliminated and the last number remaining is declared the winner.

Confusing? It can seem so at first, but once you start playing, it's extremely addictive, especially in the Turbo version where the action is 25% faster than the standard version!

betfair Exchange Card Derby Racing

betfair Exchange Card Derby Racing

Much like the Kentucky Derby games at the fairground (where you roll balls to move your horse forward) Card Derby Racing is a racing game where the turn of the cards decides who wins!

Before the race each suit is handicapped by having 3 cards removed. You can see which cards have been removed, allowing you to bet before the race (BACK or LAY) and then after each round. After each round, new prices are issued, giving you the chance to either bet again or hold your position.
