Bet behind is a Live Blackjack feature, loved and used in practice by many casino players. In brief: you bet on a player that you think will win a hand by placing chips in your ‘Bet Behind box’.
How to use this betting type?
Each player seated at a live blackjack online table has a ‘Bet Behind box’. You wil see this box just below your own betting box. Now all you have to do is place your chips in the Bet Behind box from the player you want to wager on (you want to follow) during the betting period.
Handy with it is the ‘Hot Streak table’, usually located at the top right of your screen. This table displays the players at your live BlackJack table that are on winning streaks and how many hands the streak has lasted. We advise new players to play with low stakes bets to try out live blackjack and to experience the Bet Behind option.
Do you have a seat?

There is no limit to the number of ‘waiting for a seat’-players to bet behind the seated players. Once you have a seat, you can still bet behind any other seated players.
