Launched in 2005, Betfred Poker offers a range of popular games, with some generous bonuses, side games and access to the whole Betfred online betting site. As part of the biggest European poker network, there are always thousands at the tables, while a wide range of buy in prices means that anyone can find a game to suit their style and budget.
Betfred have a history as a high street bookmaker going back to 1967 and so they have plenty of experience and knowledge when it comes to providing what their customers require, which shows across all of their online sites where they have chosen the best software on the market for each part. For the poker section, they use Playtech software and the iPoker network.
Although a UK company, Betfred Poker are licensed and regulated by the government of Gibraltar, where most of the major online gambling companies have chosen to be located. This actually helps players, as local laws require Betfred to have their games independently monitored for fairness, security and stability, while they must also protect customer's personal information and handle financial transactions over encrypted servers to prevent risk to funds.
Although new player offers will change from time to time, Betfred Poker players can expect to receive a small amount of bonus funds that can be used to enter tournaments, or play high speed poker games. This is a pretty limited offer as, unlike most online poker sites, they do not always give new sign ups a welcome bonus based on a percentage of their first deposit amount. Instead, players earn reward points which can be exchanged for cash as they play. The 'Your Career' scheme earns 30 points for every £1 of rake generated in cash games or £1 paid in tournament fees, and once a certain numbers of points is reached, they can move up the 'Your Career' levels, which have exotic names based on well-known gambling destinations like Cannes, Macau, and Las Vegas. Each level brings with it a new and improved set of rewards, such as improved points conversion rates, daily giveaways and tournaments. Rather confusingly, players earn both career points and cash points, with career ones simply showing them what level of the loyalty scheme they have reached and cash ones being that actual points that can be converted to money.
Other promotions come and go, frequently being linked to sporting events, where Betfred Poker offer free bets on big games or races, plus they sometimes offer redeposit bonuses. On particular days, there are free poker tournaments where the prizes are in the form of free sports betting bonuses for the top ranked players.
Poker games at Betfred include:
High speed poker is a holdem game where players can instantly fold a bad hand and be dealt a new hand at a new table. Games are available in Limit, Pot Limit and No Limit, two player heads up, tournaments, Sit n' Gos with fixed numbers of seats, and special satellite tournaments which can win entry to major poker events. Buy ins range from zero at freeroll tournaments, to £100s, and by being part of such a huge network, there are games starting all the time, with the maximum number at peak hours when over 35,000 users can be online. Over £20 million in guaranteed tournaments is offered here each month.
The software is from the Playtech supplier, who have an excellent reputation in the industry, and downloading it only takes a couple of minutes. It is very logically laid out and it all runs very smoothly and reliably. Players can view statistics including hand history, flops, hands played, and can join in conversations with their fellow users via the chat function.
There are lots of side games, like roulette and slots for anyone who wants to take a break from the poker action. Furthermore, once an account has been opened in any part of the Betfred site, the same account and funds can be used to play at any other part, so poker players have access to hundreds of casino games, bingo and endless sports betting opportunities.
Although there are mobile apps for the sportsbook, casino and bingo sites, there is currently no poker available to play on mobile devices and tablets.
Players can deposit money into their Betfred account using the most common credit and debit cards, plus a couple of money transfer services and prepaid vouchers, as well as at any Betfred shop. Although most people will be able to use at least one of these methods, the range is actually quite limited and definitely UK and Ireland focused.
Whichever method is used, Betfred will instantly credit the players account and no additional fees are charged. When it's time to withdraw cash, requests are processed within two business days, although the card or money transfer company may need to further process the funds, so it can be several days before money appears back in the players account. Withdrawn funds are normally returned to the card or method used to make the deposit. For security purposes, all transactions are carried out over 128 bit SSL servers, which encode all details, and as an additional security measure, customers may need to provide some proof of ID before requesting their first withdrawal.
Overall, Betfred is an excellent place to play poker, being part of the biggest network. The range of games at various buy ins ensures that players will always be able to start within seconds. Customer support is good, banking is quick and secure and the loyalty scheme converts points to cash at a good rate. They do not always provide a new player bonus, which is somewhat disappointing.
