Cash Game Rules

General

1. Unibet will at all times consider the best interests of the game and fairness as the top priority in the decision-making process. Unusual circumstances can on occasion dictate that decisions in the interest of fairness take priority over the technical rules.

2. Tables are assigned randomly, but favouring tables where players have played before and tables with the least number of players.

3. The dealer button is assigned randomly in the first cash game hand of a new table.

4. The Big Blind is given to the next clockwise player from the last hand’s Big Blind. If the last hand’s Big Blind is still at the table, the Small Blind is given to him/her. The dealer button is given to the first player before that who played in the last hand (usually the last hand’s Small Blind).

5. If only two players get cards, the Small Blind is the dealer button.

6. There is no limit to the number of raises permitted.


Sitting Out

7. Global sit out is activated when playing multiple cash games at the same time and you go into sit out mode on one of them. After doing so, you will go into sit out mode on other tables too starting from next hand except as outlined in point 8.

8. Sit out next Big Blind option allows you to automatically go into sit out mode when you would become Big Blind. If you are playing on multiple tables you’ll go into sit out mode on each of them once your turn to post Big Blind comes.

9. When you activate global sit out you will have 500 seconds to return to the tables. If you do not return in that time, you will be removed from those games.
