The player will back or lay the computer to correctly predict the next card in a sequence: will the next card be higher or lower than the previous. Similar to the dewi365 example above, the computer will guess the next card based upon probability. For instance, if the card 7 is drawn and there are 2 cards left in the game with a value lower than seven, and if there are 5 cards left with a value higher than 7 – then the computer will predict the next card to be higher than card 7.
As simple as the Hilo game may sound, this is a challenging game for traders as odds will swing, not only depending on in which order the cards are drawn, but also how many cards remain in total in the game.
Betfair Exchange Games also hosts a virtual horse racing game called Card Derby Racing where “virtual horses” race along the track as cards are being drawn to determine their progress in each round. Also, an interesting version of the classic game of Roulette is available in Bullseye Roulette. In this “Betfair” version of the game, several roulette balls are sent off in rounds as they eliminate all of the numbers until there is only one number left – in fact the result you would end up with a single roulette spin at any online casino. But in the Betfair version of exchange roulette, bets and trades can of course be made in each round!
Betfair Exchange Games can be played in a slower “standard” mode where each round is approximately one minute long, and in “turbo” mode where each round is around 30 seconds. It doesn’t matter which mode you choose as the games are played out in exactly the same way.
