Full Poker Review

Betfair is a long standing provider of sports betting, casino games and poker. The company was established between 1999 and 2000 by Bert Black and Edward Wray. They started with their betting service in 2000 and launched their poker client in 2004. So Betfair has been around the block a time or two.

Betfair is licensed and regulated, too, as well as publicly traded on the London Stock Exchange. So all in all, you can feel good about playing their sports, casino and poker games. Your money is safe with them, as they are one of the safest poker sites on the market.

Playing Poker at for Real Money

Unfortunately, Betfair does not accept US players.

For everyone else, Betfair Poker is on the OnGame Network which provides Betfair PC users with a download and a browser (no-download) version for Mac and Linux OS users. At this time Betfair does not have a mobile version of their poker software. They do have mobile software for their casino games and sports betting, though.

Once an account is created, real money players will be able to deposit at Betfair using the following methods: MasterCard, Click and Buy, Western Union, Bank Transfer, PayPal, Neteller, Solo, Laser, Visa and Visa Electron. Keep in mind that many banking methods are location specific, so you'll want to double check what's available to you.

Most of the deposit methods can be used for withdrawals too.

Betfair's Bonuses and Rewards

Betfair offers 5 different deposit bonus options and lets you choose whichever one you'd like to have. Here are your options, along with the increments you're paid in and the points needed to be paid.

  • » $50 - $5 for every 40 points earned.
  • » $250 - $10 for every 80 points earned.
  • » $500 - $25 for every 225 points earned.
  • » $1,000 - $100 for every 1,000 points earned.
  • » $2,500 - $500 for every 7,000 points earned.

All bonuses have an expiration date of 60 days from the time you make your deposit. The exception is the $50 bonus which expires in 90 days. I recommend basing your decision on how quickly you think you can earn the required number of points. Also note that the $2,500 bonus is slightly harder to earn than the $1k bonus, which is just as easy to earn as the $500 bonus.

New players are also eligible for the $2500 freeroll. The freeroll runs every Thursday.
