Has anyone played Split Bet Poker on the blackjackist app?

The game: The primary bet is divided into 3 parts: A (ante), I, II. (Equal sizes) After receiving 3 cards, the player can pull back or leave I, and after the first community card is revealed they can pull back or leave II. Winnings are paid out for bets left on the table based on the rank of the hand.

Royal flush 1000:1
Straight flush 200:1
4 of a kind 50:1
Full House. 11:1
Flush 8:1
Straight 5:1
3 of a kind 3:1
2 pair 2:1
Pair 10s or better 1:1

I typically count my outs for a win to decide whether I pull back (split) or bet the I and II.

If anyone has thoughts, strategy, or house edge for the game I would love to hear.

There are also 2 side bets:
3 - pays on your hand only
6 - you get a 6th card (doesn't pay on ante , I, or II bets if a win)
Those each have separate pay tables that, from what I calculate, have a rather unacceptable house edge.

What is the payout for a full house?
So many better men, a few of them friends, are dead. And a thousand thousand slimy things live on, and so do I.

When the name "Let it Ride" has a copywrite and Split Bet Poker does not. The game format itself should be public domain by now.

Hmm I guess you are right. I hadn't compared the 2 until you said this. The only change I see is the 6 bet. This thread is moot.

Old thread I know. Is it moot though? The 6 bet considers all 6 of your cards and gives you one extra chance at hitting a higher paying bonus. Wouldn't that potentially offer a different betting strategy? Let It Ride only offers you 5 cards. Sure, the 6 bet excludes Pairs and Two Pairs, but for every other bet it gives you one extra card to hit the combination - and pays out massively. This doesn't impact really on your decision to pull back your bets because it doesn't pay out on those bets, but the winnings can offset the losses on those bets if you leave them out.
