Popularity 9/10
Betfair is arguably the largest non-US sites for betting exchanges and they are looking to now grow as a poker site. They started by sponsoring the WSOP Europe and this gives them many exclusive offerings around the event. Betfair have also recently moved away from Ongame network and moved to iPoker……… a sign of their growth and ambition.

Profitability 9/10
Player standards on the site can be quite low and fishy and so this is a good choice for any player to deposit on. In recent years Betfair has been playing on the very fishy Ongame Network which has seen their numbers become very soft and profitable. Moving to iPoker may dilute the offerings but as iPoker is also a fishy network then Betfair is arguably the best site for skilled players to deposit on and clean up !

Software 9/10
The Betfair poker client is fresh, clean and easy to use. They have many features such as 15 tables multi-tabling, avatars, easy view and a search function to find the perfect game.

Bonuses & Promotions 10/10
A massive $2000 bonus awaits first time players which in itself is industry leading. Add to this 4x $1000 weekly freeroll for new players and a very lucrative VIP scheme for regular players and this site is throwing a lot at players to entice them to join and stay playing on Betfair.

Range of Games 10/10
Betfair don’t hold back on the selection front either. Of course there is No Limit Hold’em but also Pot Limit, Fixed Limit, Blaze Poker, Razz, 7-Card Stud, 5 Card Stud, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo and more. They have a lot of offers in the low-mid range tournament scale with the occasional high stakes tournaments. Of course we also have exclusive WSOP Europe satellites to add to the range, as well as almost every other Live Event on the calendar.
