The poker client on the iPoker network is very user-friendly, Betfair offers the usual functions to make the games appealing for different customers, including completely interchangeable decks, tables, backgrounds and avatars. The biggest downfall for any poker site on the iPoker network currently is that their software is not compatible with Apple or Linux systems, so you can only play on the full software if you are using a Windows-based computer.
The team have developed a great app that is IOS and Android compatible, so for all you Apple customers out there, you aren’t missing out on the experience. With all the usual functions you would expect from such a high-end website, they have gone all out with this app, multi-tabling all games at the players’ disposal, it plays almost identically the same as the full software on a computer.
There is a good solid range of cash games running on the site, they offer games from $0.01/$0.02 all the way up to $20/$40 limit games and $5/$10 No limit Hold’em games. The site simply offers Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha variations including Fixed limit hold’em and Omaha and now offering 6 plus hold’em.
There are many tables usually running, with heads up tables on offer and games running daily from the lowest to the highest stakes. A popular action game on the site is the 20-50 big blind buy-in games, essentially a short stack game where you can enter into a $5/$10 game with just $200 and try and spin up a big stack. Apposed to the games on other sites where you may be forced to play such games with a minimum stack of 50bbs or $500, I really like this idea and it always seems to make for action-packed games with many All ins.
This is iPoker networks answer to fast folding poker action, with the click of a fold button you will get seated at another table in the pool of players who have also folded and instantly be able to play another hand. The games run from as little as €0.02/€0.05 up to €1/€2 however the main of the action seems to get played in the micro stakes with the €0.10/€0.20 game being the crowd favourite.
Sit n Go’s
Betfair Poker offers all the usual Sit n Go formats you would expect, the main of the traffic is heads up Turbo and Super Turbo action, with players sitting at tables ranging from €5 to €5000 to play one on one. That being said, 6max games are also popular, micro and low stakes games fill often from a few cents to €20 games getting regular action.
Being established on the iPoker network there are some nice value tournaments on offer to players, with games of all buy in sizes from €1 to €50 games running all day long, some of the best games are at the peak traffic times as you would expect, with a €5000 guaranteed with a mere €10 buy-in and a daily €10,000 guaranteed prize pool on offer for just €50 entry.
There’s some great value to be had in these games and if you are looking to play micro-mid stakes tournaments I would recommend this as a place to come, however, if you are looking for some higher stakes than €100 daily games then this is not the site for you.
Six Plus Hold’em
A little different to some of the other competitions offerings, the 6+ games on the iPoker network are ante-less, so they are played with the normal small and big blind and the rules in place here are that Three of a kind beats a Straight and as with all short deck games A flush beats a full house.
If you are not familiar with this game and want to check out the rules and some strategy, check out our post on the game HERE
This action game is very lucrative for players with a good head for not getting too attached to pretty hands, as in Pot Limit Omaha, this game is very board dependent. Regardless of if you have played any 6+ hold’em yet, or if you are looking to learn, this is a great place to do so with this fun game being played in some of the highest stakes action in Macau, it seems this is a gamblers favourite that will be here to stay. With games constantly running from €0.02/€0.04 up to €0.50/€1, there is something for everyone here.
These are 3 handed Turbo Sit n Go’s which offer players random jackpots. There are three types of entries the Wild Twister are over in just one or a few hands with a buy-in of €0.50 and prizes up to a €50 ticket. The next offerings are the Twisters these games range from €1-€100 and players can bag up to €100,000 playing these. Then finally there are 3 progressive jackpot games available the AGE of the GODS Twister, these games accumulate a small percentage of all players entries and prizes reach hundreds of thousands from just a €1 investment. If you are lucky enough to win one of these your life will be changed forever!
The loyalty program offers players 25 points for every €1 raked by the site in either tournament buy-ins or cash game hands, there are two levels of multipliers available bronze level will earn a 3x multiplier of points from your first game on the site the next level is Gold, this can be reached by accumulating 12,500 points monthly. This will then reward those Gold level player with a 5.25x multiplier for earning points.
It is a fairly complicated way of saying that is you play over a certain level on the site you will get 35% Rakeback instead of the entry level of 20% Rakeback. 375 VPPs can be cashed out for €1 and will go straight into players wallets, however, a minimum of 3750 VPPs applies to all Cash Out transactions.
The site also offers new player’s that have yet to even deposit a reward spin where you could win up to €10,000 cash or a Twister ticket up to the value of €20. A very good idea to let players have a game or two on the software before deciding if they want to deposit more funds.
Deposit and Withdrawal
All the normal Credit and Debit cards are accepted as you would expect, with the site also offering a good range of alternatives in the way of accepting Neteller, Skrill, Paypal, Bank transfers and Paysafecard deposits. As PaddyPower is under the same umbrella as Betfair, you can also use Paddypower Shops to add money to your account too!
Withdrawals from all major poker sites have never been faster, with player’s funds back in digital wallet services like Neteller and Skrill instantaneously and Credit/Debit card withdrawals usually completed within 2-3 days.
If you are a Windows computer user and looking for a great poker site to play cash games of all limits including 6+ Holdem and Omaha, Low-Mid stakes tournaments or Heads up/6Max sit n Go’s this site is definitely for you. Downsides are no high stakes tournaments to speak of on the network and although the site has great mobile apps, Mac/Linux systems are not yet supported.
