With a company like The Sporting Exchange Ltd behind it, Betfair Poker has been one of the UK’s top online poker operators for years. While struggling to gain traction in other markets, Betfair’s strong UK foothold translates into decent player numbers. There are around 5,200 players at the site’s tables in peak hours, of whom 1,200 are at the cash game tables and the rest at the tournament ones.
Here’s a brief run-down of the site’s most attractive features/offers: their Speed Poker (their own version of Rush-Poker inspired fast-folding poker) is quite popular indeed. Action junkies love Speed Poker but what they seem to love even more are promotions like the John vs Lizzie WSOP promotion and the $4k Monthly Money Matrix. Those who play a lot at the site and fulfill the VIP requirements will get to enjoy thousands of perks, courtesy of the Betfair Poker VIP Club.
In addition to all the above, Betfair give away around $12 million in guaranteed prizes each month. The software is flexible and smooth and it is available in 7 languages. The overall action is rather loose indeed, although at the higher stakes, the going definitely gets tougher.
In the minus column, we’ll have to include the fact that the Betfair Poker software tends to be confusing here and there, but the one to blame for that is developer PlayTech.
As one could probably have guessed, Betfair Poker does not accept US traffic. What that means is that being a heavily Europe-focused operation, their overall traffic numbers drop off dramatically during European off-hours.
The sign-up bonus offered by Betfair Poker is an extremely generous one. The match percentage is above the industry standard and so is the maximum on the bonus.
Tournament-wise, the biggest event to look for on a weekly basis is a $200K Guaranteed. There are of course all sorts of MTTs running all the time featuring a wide range of buy-in levels and there are some pretty attractive freerolls on offer too.
