Why Choose bet365 Poker?

Bet365 has been around since the early 2000s. And while its sportsbook and casino have flourished, the poker site continues to bumble along as an iPoker skin. Even though bet365 poker might be the slightly neglected child of the United Kingdom's gambling empire, it still boasts some amazing games, good promotions, and a revamped interface.

Welcome Bonus

There's a basic €100 welcome bonus for new players, which on the face of it doesn't sound like much. However, only €10 is needed to trigger the promotion, and new players earn €5 of tournament tokens as standard.

Bonus cash is released at a rate of €1 for the first 50 Merit Points (earned for playing cash games and tournaments). €4 is released for the next 300 Merit Points, with a further €5 dished out for every additional 450 Merit Points.

To welcome new players, Beginners' Cash Tables are open for three months after setting up a new account. These are offered at various stakes and are ONLY open to new players.

Bonuses and Promotions

Premium Pairs guarantees a share of €100,000 in prizes. Daily freerolls award straight cash, but if you get dealt big pairs like kings, queens or jacks, you'll earn extra freeroll entries like a €1,000 'All-In' Shootout.

Like many sites, bet365 awards players with 'Missions'. Achieve certain milestones and you'll earn badges and shields in your account profile. Regular promotions like the 'Warrior' increases the payouts for every milestone you reach.

Merit Points go towards bet365 players' VIP status. 15 points are rewarded for every £1 or €1 of rake or tourney fees. There are four tiers of bonus on the site.

Software

The bet365 software was redesigned recently, with lots of easy-to-access features included. The Cashier (Bank), games and account are all easier to get to now. The lobby resembles a 'dashboard' with easy to click buttons getting you to the games you want fast. Recommended games and your current VIP level are also displayed in the new lobby.

Bet365 is part of the iPoker network, so you can expect the network's trademark table set-up and design across the site. The tables have been redesigned too. Extra buttons on the game screen include a 'Join Similar' function which lets you start up games in the same discipline or stakes as the one you're playing.

Players can also add tournament and cash table 'Favourites' on their own 'My Poker' profile.

As with many poker rooms who have casinos attached, a big emphasis is made on side games. As such, there are quite intrusive links to slots and table games on the casino side of the site.

Customer Support

There's a great 24-hour customer support team on call at bet365. UK players can phone free of charge, send post, or get their email queries answered within 24 hours. There's also a superb 24-hour Instant Chat service on the site.

Cash Games

Bet365 boasts some decent iPoker action at the low-mid stakes. €0.05/0.10 No Limit Hold'em tables remain popular, with 6-max games particularly popular at peak times.

The quality of players, like many iPoker skins, isn't fantastic at the lower levels, and it's quite possible to multi-table 3 or 4 tables at the €0.10/€0.25 with ease. 'Premium Tables' run at all stakes and give you the chance to take on bet365 players only. Games can be reached easily via the 'Quick Seat' function in the lobby. Just choose from Game Mode, Game Type and Bet Type to find a table.

Bet365's own fast-fold variant, Speed Poker, is also a popular with British players, especially at the low-stakes 6-max games.

Tournaments and Sit 'N Go's

This is an iPoker skin, so expect plenty of action at the Twister Sit 'n Go's and Jackpot SNGs. Twister SNGs are 3-man games with buy-ins ranging from €1 to €10. A randomly-assigned jackpot is given out to tables prior to the game starting. A top prize of €10,000 can be shared out after a game has been won.

Weekly guarantee-hunters can enjoy the Sunday Masters, which carries a €20k GTD pool and a buy-in of €150. Satellite hounds can also find packages into the Irish Open up for grabs. The 'Big Sunday' is about as big as it gets here, with a €75,000 prizepool and a €75 entry.
