Bet365 Poker brings back so much memories, mostly positive to be honest. I wasn’t really interested in bet365’s poker room for as I’ve always been busy with their sports and casino platform. One night I decided to take a seat at one of the premium cash tables and went on a pretty good run. Now I am usually a very skeptical person given the previous bad experiences I had in the long run with online poker. Next day I decided to test again the waters and got another good run. This time I felt that the players I met throughout the session were way better than the previous ones. I think it’s mainly because of the timezone it occurs that certain skilled players come out to play. So depending on what time of the day/night you decide to have a go, you might either match up with casuals or simply can bump into the high-roller sharks.

The player line-up can be sometimes weakly skilled and i think it’s due to users which migrate from the sports or online casino sections. When you are logged in on bet365 there is a very quick transitioning process that allows you to move from one section to another. This includes the possibility of transferring funds between the categories above mentioned.

They offer a big spread of online poker tournaments every week. Poker tournaments offer both daily and weekly guarantees that sum up over € 5 million monthly. Plenty of freeroll tournaments available aswell. I got also very distracted with the mini casino games that can be played while sitting out of a hand.

Competitional wise, there are plenty of tables and tournaments for cash, however the spread is huge mainly for the Hold’Em and Omaha type of games. Beginners tables are available for new players that have an account not older than 90 days. bet365 Poker offers multiple benefits when you open an account – starting with a Welcome Package that consists of a € 365 bonus, a Welcome Prize Wheel spin and a € 1 Twister ticket.

Promotions, VIP status and bonuses: When playing on bet365 Poker, Merit Points are earned. The Merit Points are racked up at a rate of 15 for every € 1 paid in cash game rake or poker tournament fees. Once you earn 1,000 points or more, you move up in VIP Status. There are 4 VIP levels:
Bronze – between 1,000 and 4,999 Merit Points Monthly Silver – between 5,000 and 9,999 Merit Points Monthly Gold – between 10,000 and 19,999 Merit Points Monthly Platinum – 25,000 Merit Points Monthly Once you have achieved a certain status you will become eligible for either Cash Rewards, Bonus Rewards and Tournament Token Rewards. You can claim more than one of these rewards if you have enough total points.

Bet365 Welcome Package includes: € 365 redeemable bonus, € 5 worth of tournament tickets, 10 free casino spins or access to daily welcome missions.
The € 365 bonus is redeemed in € 2.50 installments as you earn Status Points. The first two € 2.50 are released when 25 and then 50 Status Points are accumulated. Next 24 installments will be redeemed for each 100 Status Points accumulated. Whatever remains is redeemed for every 250 Status Points that the player accumulates. Status Points are accumulated at a rate of 10 for every € 1 or £ 1 paid in rake and/or tournament fees. You have 60 days to fully redeem the € 365 bonus. Twister tickets can only be used to enter Twister tournaments with the corresponding buy-in. If unused, tickets expire seven days after being credited. Tournament Tickets can be used to enter any tournament of the relevant type and buyin amount. Cash Game Tickets can be used just on the premium cash tables.
Notifications regarding the qualifying game within the poker software are available. Free Spins may only be used for play on the relevant game within the poker software. Mind the free casino spins that they might not be worth very much, usually they go for as much as € 1 in value.

You must be very careful when using any promotional code or claim any of their offers. Each of them come with different terms and conditions and you might not be able to fully benefit from them. Make sure to opt-in and receive promotional e-mails or texts as they sometimes offer good promotions with no hidden unlocking rules or even amounts of money to be used in their casino or poker platform. It might also be influenced based of what country you live in.
Turbo Sit & Go tournaments are available in buy-ins of € 1, € 2, € 5 and €10 and it’s similar with PokerStars’ Spin and Go. Players that want to hit it big and want a fast paced game will love this game mode. The prize can get multiplied 10000 times if you are lucky enough to sit at the table when this rare event occurs.

Planning on hitting a massive payout? You should try the Twister Sit & Go. It is a three-handed turbo tournament that pay the winner anywhere from double to 1,000 times their buy-in. Turbo Sit & Go tournaments are available for buy-ins of € 1, € 2, € 5 or € 10. If you do not like the idea of random prizes, turn your head towards bet365’s Premium Steps. With this game mode, you get chances to build your way up to claim € 800 for as little as € .50 cents or 100 Merit Points. Just like Twister Sit & Go’s, these game modes are fast paced three handed events. There is a total of 9 steps to complete. Winners of Steps 1 to 8 get a ticket to the final step. Number 9 step is where the winner takes home 800 €

If you tried the online casino at bet365 you will notice that some of the games they offer are made by the provider that offers the poker platform. For technical passionates, the company that develops the software is called Playtech, a major name in the industry.

I like the poker client software. It might look outdated compared to the other competitors, but the huge fonts and colour combination are very good especially when my eyes get tired and dry from staring at all those cards. Poker platform is supported in 14 languages. The iOS and Android app go hand in hand with the main desktop design and i’m quite happy with it overall. Connection was somehow pretty stable if i take in consideration the experiences i had with other poker rooms. I

The staff at bet365 Poker and bet365 in general is amazing! The verification process with bet365 Poker is quite easy and fast. The people handling the document verification are doing their job in a very timely fashion. They move at fast rate when it comes to deal with cashout requests also. A thing that bet365 always exceeded at. The support staff is also top notch. Can’t really praise them enough, they do an amazing job.

Although bet365 is a very respectable and long-time gambling operator, the number of restricted countries is quite huge. The following countries are banned from playing at bet365 Poker: Afghanistan, American Samoa, Angola, Belgium, Burundi, Cambodia, Chad. Congo Republic, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eritrea, France, French Guyana, Guadeloupe, GuineaBissau, Guam, Haiti, Hong Kong, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Libya, Martinique, Monaco, Myanmar, Netherlands, North Korea, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Singapore, Somalia, South Africa, Sudan, Syria,
Tajikistan, Turkey, Turkmenistan, USA, US Virgin Islands, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Yemen, Zimbabwe.

Payment methods accepted by bet 365 Poker are: Debit cards, Credit Cards, Neteller, Skrill, Skrill 1-Tap, Click2Pay, Ukash, paysafecard, EntroPay, Bank Wire, Cheque. The withdrawal methods might slightly vary so be sure to check before you decide to invest any money.

Pros and cons about the good old bet365 poker:

Pros: – Support staff is fabulous – Quick payouts and processing times – Respectable and reliable gambling operator (one of my all time favourites) – Fast document verification and approval – Smooth platform, online website loading very fast and with a smooth transition between the section they offer (Sports, Casino etc) – The possibility to transfer funds between the sportsbook, casino or poker section. Very good in case you hit it big at the slots and you are running low on the Poker part. This feature is useless for strictly poker players, but it’s nice to have it anyways.

Cons: – Bonuses could be improved – Promotions could use some tweaking aswell

I would personally recommend bet365 and all it’s products anytime. So far i really can’t say much negative stuff about them. It is a rare case where majority of players are actually positive minded about a gambling operator. Casumo is probably one of the few that can match bet365 in the terms of cool-factor in the gambling business, although the forementioned serves only as a online slot casino. Finally, bet 365 poker is definetly in my top 3 when it comes to poker. Just remember not to gamble more than you can afford.
