Bola tangkas

Bola tangkas or Indonesian style poker is a casino game using 7 cards to generate the highest card combination. Unlike common poker, Bola tangkas based on five-card draw poker by tossing out 2 other cards. It is played on a computerized console similar in size to a slot machine.

History

Bola tangkas was established throughout the 1980s and became increasingly popular in casinos, as people found the devices less intimidating than playing table games. Today bola tangkas enjoys a prominent place on the gaming floors of many casinos in Indonesia. These local casinos often offer lower denomination machines or better odds.

Regulation

Game play begins by placing a bet of one or more credits, by inserting money (or in newer machines, a barcoded paper ticket with credit) into the machine, and then pressing a "Deal" button to draw cards. The player is then given an opportunity to keep or discard one or more of the cards in exchange for a new card drawn from the same virtual deck. After the draw, the machine evaluates the hand and offers a payout if the hand matches one of the winning hands in the posted pay schedule.
