Bad Beat? Have no fear! With our EV Cashout feature, you’ll get paid even if you lose! Protect your winning hand with this feature on Natural8.
If you find yourself going all-in on a hand, you can choose to protect yourself with EV Cashout!
EV Cashout is a brand new feature that will be offered to players with 60% or higher pot equity (after flop cards have been dealt and all live players have revealed their hole cards). You can then choose to either accept or decline this offer.
If you ACCEPT, the Cashout will be paid to you (regardless of the results of your hand) but the pot will be forfeited.
If you DECLINE, you continue to play for the pot as per usual gameplay.
Note: In a two-way all-in situation, the player who is behind at that moment of the hand (Eg: No pair but multiple draws with >60% equity) will only have the option to suggest RIMT and will not be able to choose EV Cashout
EV Cashout is calculated as follows:
To help you decide whether to accept or decline your EV Cashout offer, let’s take a look at a few different scenarios! Do note that for simplicity purposes, these scenarios do not include the compulsory Rake, Jackpot fee and 1% EV Cashout fee deductions.
Let’s say there is $100 in the pot, and both Alex and Ben have gone all-in. Their hole cards are revealed, and it shows that Alex has equity of 80%. He will be offered EV Cashout.
Alex chooses to accept the EV Cashout offer and ends up losing his hand. He takes home $80 (based on the EV Cashout calculation above), while Ben will take home the $100 in the pot.
Alex chooses to accept the EV Cashout offer and ends up winning the hand. He still only takes home $80, as accepting the EV Cashout offer means you forfeit the pot.
Alex declines the EV Cashout offer and ends up winning the hand. He takes home the $100 in the pot.
Alex declines the EV Cashout offer and ends up losing the hand. He goes home with absolutely nothing.
