Bola tangkas or Indonesian style poker is a casino game using 7 cards to generate the highest card combination. Unlike common poker, Bola tangkas based on five-card draw poker by tossing out 2 other cards. It is played on a computerized console similar in size to a slot machine.
Bola tangkas was established throughout the 1980s and became increasingly popular in casinos, as people found the devices less intimidating than playing table games. Today bola tangkas enjoys a prominent place on the gaming floors of many casinos in Indonesia. These local casinos often offer lower denomination machines or better odds.
Game play begins by placing a bet of one or more credits, by inserting money (or in newer machines, a barcoded paper ticket with credit) into the machine, and then pressing a "Deal" button to draw cards. The player is then given an opportunity to keep or discard one or more of the cards in exchange for a new card drawn from the same virtual deck. After the draw, the machine evaluates the hand and offers a payout if the hand matches one of the winning hands in the posted pay schedule.
