The Bet365 poker site is a popular destination for British and European online poker players. Tens of thousands of players are playing poker at Bet365′s tables at any given time. Bet365 is what I like to call an all-in-one gaming solution. They boast services in many different fields such as casino gambling, bingo and sports betting. This Bet365 review will just be about the poker room. Many poker site reviews contain very little useful information and a lot of promotional fluff. Very few poker portals provide detailed and unbiased reviews of online poker rooms. My favorite web site for information about poker sites is onlinepokersitereviews. The fact that the info found in their reviews if up to date puts them well above the competition. The first thing I want to cover is the sign up bonus at Bet365.
In 2012 you can claim up to $1,000 in free money at bet365 poker. That is roughly twice the size of the average poker site. They will match your first deposit at 200%, which is also twice as good as the industry average. This bonus is available to new players that enter the Bet365 bonus code PBONUS. The size of this bonus is not the only reason it is superior to most others. The clearance req’s are relatively easy and they have kept the restrictions very light. Poker bonuses usually come with a lot of fine print, enough to make a cell phone contract look simple. Bet365 Poker has taken a different route by offering an easy to understand and clear bonus.
The software at Bet365 is one area that I think they could improve. It just is not what I would expect from one of the top poker rooms online. Many players love it so I guess my opinion is shared by many. The software at Bet365 does have some qualities that I like. This platform is fast and looks good. It even supports 5 Card Stud, a relatively rare game online. It may not have all of the bells and whistles available at other poker sites but there are some cool special features.
Bet365 Poker shares players with other rooms on the iPoker Network. I do not have access to the statistics but I’m very confident that Bet365 is the most popular room out of the skins on the network, and there are a lot of them. On an average day Bet365 peaks at 30,000-40,000 players. This places Bet365 (and the other skins) in second place in regards to poker room traffic in 2012. Like all poker rooms most of the traffic is at the Texas Hold’em tables. Bet365 Poker also has a healthy community of Omaha poker players. The tournament and sitngo traffic at Bet365 is also above average. Bet365 runs a wide range of sitngo and tournament related promotions. Overlays, freerolls and tournament contests have turned Bet365 into one of the best poker rooms for tournament players online in 2012. Only Pokerstars boasts more events and monthly prize money.
