Can you pick up the card and immediately use it for another spot?

I will take this as a "yes", not familiar with the expression. Thx.

You're correct.

"You bet" is short for "you bet your bottom dollar"... which refers to playing poker. The idea is that something is so certain that you could safely bet your last dollar on it.

You bet. You bet your life. You betcha... they all mean "definitely, certainly, absolutely".

Sorry. I typed and didn't notice where you were from. My apologies. Yes, you absolutely may use that card like that.

No worries - it's nice to learn something. There is even a similar expression in german. But I wasn't sure anyway.

There are "Darauf kannst du wetten!" ("You can bet on it." literally or probably better - as Rob said - "You betcha!") or
"Darauf kannst du Gift nehmen" (literally: "You can take poison on it." or "You can bet your life.")

There is also "Ich wette" (I bet ...), but while you are still convinced it sounds a bit less certain - at least for me.

"You bet" instead: I don't think there is a german counterpart for this short form with "you".
