Betfair Poker is owned and operated by the biggest sports exchange in the world. They recently moved their poker room off of the Cryptologic network and now are a stand-alone poker room. It is home and sponsor to the newest rising star of poker Annette_15, who recently won the EPT. Piggybacking off her success, Betfair have two $200000 guaranteed tourneys a week, where you can pit your wits against this ruthless player.
Betfair Poker has one of the largest bonuses available to new players and other great incentives besides. Betfair Poker gives away $1,400 per week through twice-daily freerolls. They also have a very cool promotion called “Threedom Pass”. Players who qualify for a live tournament through this site and go on to make the final table will be bought into that same tournament for the next two years on courtesy of Betfair.
The games offered at Betfair include Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, and Seven-Card Stud. Betfair’s competition is fairly soft. Since Betfair is the largest betting exchange in the world, it attracts sports bettors who are quite frankly rubbish at poker. So you should be able to find someone to play at any level.
The first-rate software offered by Betfair Poker is privately developed and offers some nice functions, good playability and stability. It is lovely and clear and even in mini view. The latest software update added an option to play up to 15(!) tables simultaneously and for fantastic multi-tabling. NB BETFAIR is Not US Friendly, though — so bad luck to the US-players!
