About bet365 Poker

One of the world's largest gambling firms, bet365 is licensed and regulated in the UK by the Gambling Commission but also has a strong base in Gibraltar. Over the years, the British gambling firm has built up a massive online sportsbook and casino, as well as a successful bingo site. However, despite strong competition, its Playtech-powered iPoker poker site continues to attract new players.

Software

Download poker apps are available for both desktop PC and Mac users. If you're on mobile, iOS players can log onto the bet365 app using Touch ID security.

Bet365's tables are powered by Playtech (like most of the slots at its sister casino site), which means playing at one of the largest networks online. The lobby is easy to access, and you can get to tables fast by ticking the Limit/NL/PL/Fixed/Micro/Low/Medium/High boxes on-screen.

Security is solid and all information is protected by Thawte SSL Web Server encryption. Whether you're on the download client for desktop or a great mobile app, the software is glitch-free and pretty slick. Multi-tabling is a breeze, and the no-nonsense lobby is easy to filter. Things have hardly changed since the network first arrived.

Players

Bet365 poker sits on the popular iPoker network which boasts skins like Titan Poker, PaddyPower Poker, and Mansion Poker. Numbers are pretty good, with several thousand hitting the many guarantees and cash games every night. Standard varies, but SNG grinders will find the same players populating the $10-$30 games and lower-stakes NLHE cash tables.

While most of the traffic is spread over the iPoker network, bet365 does feature some 'Premium Tables' which give players to chance to play exclusively against bet365 opponents. The lobby has a dedicated section for Premium games.

Stakes & Cash Games

Cash games are solid at bet365, as they are across the iPoker network. Peaks of around 2000-2100 cash players can be found across the sites.

As well as the usual Hold'em and Omaha fare, bet365 also has an online version of Six-Plus Hold'em - a variant which has been proving a hit on the live cash game festival circuit. The game is played with 36 cards (twos, threes, fours, and fives are taken out) and features special rules like a flush beating a full house and a 3-of-a-kind beating a straight.

If you're a fast-fold nut, you'll enjoy iPoker's own take - Speed Poker. This unique take on cash games moves players as soon as they fold a hand. Speed Poker games are available at all stakes.

Tournaments

The iPoker network revamped its tournament schedule back in 2016. Now, the various sites offer around €100,000 in guaranteed tournaments every day, with special MTT 'missions' (see below) scheduled to give players a great chance to make extra cash.

Controversially, re-buys and add-ons are now raked at bet365 and other iPoker sites to bring it into line with larger online poker rooms. Despite the annoying changes, however, there are still some great nightly guarantees for players, including the €3,000 Madness (€20 buy-in) and €10,000 Championship with a €50 buy-in.

bet365's Twister Sit & Gos work like Spin & Go and other Jackpot Sit & Gos available online. You can sit down from as little as €0.50, but randomly-drawn jackpots can be worth up to 12,000 times the buy-in. Added prizes include holiday vouchers worth €5,000 and €500 cash vouchers.

Poker Bonuses & VIP

New players at bet365 poker can get a €5 cash game ticket plus a regular match bonus worth €100. Oh, and there's an extra tournament token worth €5 to use on-site. Bonus Euros are redeemed for player points (here called Merit Points) you earn when playing.

There are one or two interesting freeroll offers too. Get dealt Premium Pairs and you'll get entry into daily and weekly freerolls with €80,000 in total prizepool cash. MTT specialists can enjoy €3,000 'Missions' and earn further freeroll tokens.

Customer Support & Banking

bet365 poker players have customer support available via email, Live Chat, or 24-hour phone. There's also a web messaging/on-site form service.

There's an easy 'transfer' option that lets you move cash back and forth between wallets (poker, sportsbook, casino etc).

Banking is simple, and you can set up a 'Quick Deposit' function which lets you deposit without having to enter your entire card number over and over. Payments can be made from as little as £/€5 via VISA Debit, Maestro, VISA and MasterCard, while leading e-Wallets like Skrill/Skrill 1-Tap, NETELLER and PayPal are also fast options. Transaction fees are totally free at bet365 poker.

Summary

If you want access to the best iPoker action as well as some nice bonuses and casino side games, bet365 is for you. It doesn’t quite have the numbers of an 888poker or PokerStars, but for friendly-priced guaranteed tournaments and special events you can't go wrong. And in terms of competition, SNG players and low-medium stakes NLHE players will have no problems finding the easy tables.
