Bet365 Poker Review

by Gambling.com™

Bet365 is another example of an online bookmaker who decided to venture into the world of poker. Part of the iPoker network, players are presented the opportunity to play from micro stakes to high stakes, if you have the bankroll to do so that is. With freerolls and their 'Beginners’ Races' promotion, Bet365 Poker provides a great platform for beginners and players transitioning from other sites as well!

Software and Platform

Being part of the iPoker network means players and quality gaming are guaranteed. But how each site chooses to design its platform is up to them. Bet365 Poker may not be so flashy when it comes to graphics, but has a good, solid, and simple design, which is instantly familiar to any online poker player.

In terms of accessibility, players can join a table via a downloadable product, which installs directly to your desktop for quick and reliable access, an instant-play browser based platform, a mobile-friendly site and/or a dedicated mobile poker app downloadable to most mobile devices (all platforms are integrated).

Bet365 Mobile Poker App

It's not always that you find a major gambling brand like Bet365 dedicating its resources to building quality mobile apps for each individual product they offer but that's exactly what the UK-based operator has done. Players can download an independent Bet365 Poker app for quick and easy card playing on-the-go.

The app is obviously a slightly slimmed version of the full-size poker website but that's to be expected and nothing of note is missing from the mobile experience. Mobile poker players can still access all the games variants and tables offered through the desktop version. Overall, the Bet365 Poker app is a cut above the rest!

User Experience

With a wide range of customization options and a clear cut lobby there should be no problem catering to all players. Site navigation is topnotch, quick and breeze to figure out. The massive array of tables and poker game varieties will have players of all levels salivating. The visuals are lacking but that isn't the highest priority of most players.

Players reaching the Bet365 Poker portal from the main website are greeted with an inviting banner featuring the generous welcome bonus currently on offer. The banner is followed by a 'how to' on getting setup to play as a new member; players are also immediately prompted to download the product, something we recommend.

Cash Games and Tournaments

You can expect to see around 8,000 real money players when you hit the cash games at most times of the day, which means you should have no problem finding a table that you can play in, as long as you’re not looking to play too big. Those interested in high-roller tables will need to be more patient than the common player.

Tournaments are where the majority of the players are located, with an average of 30,000 players taking their chances to win it big throughout the day. The £200,000 guarantee freezout every Sunday makes for a great tournament full of value. Bet365 also offers an above average amount of poker promotions, so don't miss out!

Game Variety

Although dominating the scene is No Limit Hold’em, Bet365 offers you the additional option of playing Omaha, Stud, Draw, or Razz as well as other poker game variants, whether in cash games or tournaments. It should be rare for poker lovers to reach Bet365 Poker and not find something they're sure to love and enjoy.

Competition Level

As mentioned before, sites that run as bookmakers, or facilitate other gambling options, usually offer a generally loose population of players. Of course, the sharks always take note of these, so be careful. Try to identify the pro and the casual player at your tables. Keep to low stakes and the games should be pretty easy.

Promotions

Bet365 Poker has a great loyalty program where you can earn bonus cash from playing on their client. They also feature a decent match-deposit bonus and a new player freeroll, which is great for building your bankroll. Another promotion Bet365 runs is the 'Travel the World with Bet365' which gives you the opportunity to win trips abroad by competing in leader boards.

Support and Banking

Bet365 touts a stellar support system featuring a topnotch support staff, FAQs, a Bet Tutorial, and a state-of-the-art Live Chat feature. The support staff can also be reached via phone, email, post, fax, and a useful call-back system.

The support service is available 24/7 but we recommend any major concerns be addressed between 09.00 - 17.00 GMT as that is the only time Senior Support Advisors are available for assistance and thus the only time to solve more in-depth issues.

As for banking, you have the option of playing games in three different currencies, the euro, the pound, and the dollar, which is great if you can’t be bothered to exchange back and forth in the system. But make sure to monitor exchanges rates!

Bet365 accepts debit cards, electronic payment methods, mail deposits, and bank wires so you should have no problem getting your money in and out of your account. Most house-hold names will be offered including VISA, MasterCard and PayPal.

Our Verdict

Bet365 established itself as a topnotch bookmaker decades ago but emerging as an elite poker provider is the next goal. Bet365 uses generous promotions, massive player pools in the iPoker network and a simple site layout to draw new and returning players to their budding poker offering!

ProsCons
part of the leading iPoker network limited graphics and site design
 clutter-free site layout and navigation missing some popular poker variants
 wide-range of cash games and tournaments
