Full Bet365.com Poker Review

Over the last decade, Bet365 has grown from a name no one had ever heard to one of the most prominent (and profitable) brands in all of online gambling.  Observers credit the rapid rise to fair treatment of players, well-executed promotions and a keen focus on bringing in as wide of a swath of gamblers as possible to the company's various online betting properties.

For poker players, all of this results in one of the premier options available in today's online poker market.  To learn more about the strengths (and weaknesses) of the room, continue on with our review of the poker room at Bet365. Players must be at least 18 to open a new account.

What Types of Poker Does Bet365 Spread?

Bet365 is a part of the iPoker Network, which is generally ranked as the second or third-largest online poker room in the world in terms of real-money traffic.  In addition, Bet365 hosts tables of their own - Premium Tables - that are not shared with the rest of the iPoker Network.  You'll find Texas Hold'em games, Omaha Games (PLO and Hi/Lo) and Stud Games (7 Card and 5 Card Hi) in the poker room at Bet365.

The size of the room means Bet365 hosts hundreds of real-money cash game tables at any point in time.  The bulk of games fall into the micro-stakes and low-stakes category, but there's also plenty of action at the mid-stakes all the way into the nosebleed games.  NLHE makes up roughly 80%-90% of the cash games.  As for tournaments, Bet365 hosts a very active SNG and MTT lobby that offers a wide variety of formats and limits.  NLHE is by far the most common game, but the large player base of Bet365 Poker also supports fairly frequent non-holdem tournament offerings - especially Omaha variants.

Bet365 was the first iPoker room to roll out Sprint Poker - a fast-fold variant similar to PokerStar's Zoom Poker.  The product is quickly moving out of beta and already boasts substantial player pools at a variety of games and limits, starting with micro-stakes and moving up from there.

How Weak Are Players at Bet365 Poker?

We think Bet365 is one of the better-kept secrets in online poker when it comes to the weakness of a typical opponent.  The room has a number of things going for it:  A connected sportsbook and casino, the "Premium Tables" that are locked off from the rest of the network and a level of mainstream exposure that even PokerStars has to be a little envious of.  That's a potent recipe for soft poker games that most other poker rooms simply can't match.

While each individual table will be a different experience, we give Bet365 our highest possible grade for number of fish / weakest games - especially if you're willing to play at the Premium Tables, which are going to feature likely the weakest competition of any tables in the Bet365 poker room.

www.Bet365.com Offers Far More Than Just Poker

While the Bet365 Poker room is certainly world-class, the company actually hosts a full line of wagering products under the Bet365 brand.  The Bet365 Casino offers live dealer games, hundreds of slots and other video games (including top picks from both PlayTech and Microgaming) and the full range of classic casino games like blackjack and roulette.  The Bet365 Sportsbook is world-renowned for its innovative In-Play markets that let you bet on just about any aspect of a match you can imagine as it happens - minute to minute and sometimes even second to second. 

These products, along with Bet365 Games and Bet365 Bingo, are all accessible from the one central wallet you'll also use for poker. An added advantage offered by Bet365:  Transferring money from the poker part of your wallet to any other part is treated just like a deposit in most cases and qualifies you for any deposit bonuses on offer for that product.

What Devices is Bet365 Poker Compatible With?

This is one of the few areas where www.Bet365.com earns a below-average grade.  The company is still in the process of developing an Android version of the poker room (Bet365 casino and sports, however, are available for mobile) as has yet to announce plans for an iPad / iPhone compatible version of the Bet365 poker experience.  Mac and Linux users also have few options when it comes to playing poker at Bet365 (besides running virtual Windows), as the poker room is not available in a Mac OS compatible version.  Finally, Bet365 does not have an instant-play poker room.

Banking and Security at Bet365 Poker

Back to top grades for the room; when it comes to security - both in terms of handling your financial transactions and protecting the integrity of their games - Bet365 has a reputation that meets or exceeds the best in the industry.  With total gambling turnover in the billions, Bet365 has been tested in a way that no other operator can really match, and has passed every test with flying colors.

Players will also appreciate the flexibility and speed of deposits and withdrawals.  Credit cards, PayPal, Skrill and almost all major e-wallets and banking options are available at Bet365 Poker, with very low turnaround times and reasonable deposit and withdrawal minimums across all methods.
