Texas Hold'em

Also known simply as Hold’em, this variation of 7-Card Stud is becoming the most popular poker game in the world. No Limit and Pot Limit Hold'em are also available at Sportbet.

Omaha & Omaha Hi/Lo

Omaha is very similar to Hold'em, but has a greater chance of making bigger hands and provides for some extremely exciting games.


The objective of this popular table game is to accumulate cards that add up closer to 21 than that of the dealer's cards - without going over 21.

Player Notes

If you're like most players, and you play with the same opponents enough, you can't help but notice quirks in their behaviour. Of course, when you're at a physical table, you have to keep those notes in your head.

At Open Waters Poker Room we provide you with Player Notes so you can track your opponents'. Just right-click an opponent's seat and make your private notes in the text window. Click Update to save.

Buddy List

Open Waters Poker Room has developed the Buddy List because poker, like any social activity, is more enjoyable with friends. If you enjoy playing or communicating with certain players, you can make them a regular part of your play.

From the lobby, click Buddy List to open the Buddy List window. From there, you can add and remove buddies or join a buddy's table.

Sportbet customer service department is available at any time to assist players with any issues or concerns. Please phone us at 1-800-430-5896, send us an email or contact Live Chat for more information.
