The software offered by Betsafe is a simple and eye-pleasing view, the team has full software which is downloadable for both Windows and Mac OS. It has a good layout for viewing all the players on the table, when downloaded the usual backgrounds can be quite loud, but you can click options in the top left of the table and change this view to stealth mode, which is a much better view and far more poker focused.
Unlike some of the other poker sites on the same network, BetSafe has poker available on their mobile app which is downloadable on IOS and Android. As with nearly all poker apps, they are never as user-friendly as their desktop counterparts, but this software is easy to use and fairly similar to the full version with all the same options as far as betting and multitabling goes.
Betsafe is focused solely on No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha, with varying their offerings over cash games, tournament and Sit n Go’s including a Jackpot game. They also offer free play options for anyone looking to gain experience playing without worrying about losing money.
There is a decent amount of action here for any low-mid stakes tournament players, definitely good for new players looking to build bankrolls, or as an additional site to play on if you are looking for more tournaments to play as a grinder. The play in these games is far worse than many other poker sites and with modest buy-ins such as €22 getting you into a €6,000 guarantee daily and with weekend prize pools reaching €50,000 for €110 buy-ins there is something for everyone here.
This is the site’s fast fold option where every time a player clicks fold, a new hand on another table will be generated with players from the same pool. The game is 6 handed and only micro-low stakes games are running, but this is a good way for new players to get some experience under there belt and with soft action, it’s a lucrative way to build up a bankroll too. Stakes start from €0.01/€0.02 and go to €025/0.50.
These are 3 handed, hyper turbo, short stacked, progressive jackpot games. With buy-ins starting from just €1, the prizes that are handed out daily in these things can be life-changing money to many players. Once players have bought into the game, the prize pool is decided by a slot machine type graphic detailing the prize. Winners can get 5000x the buy-in PLUS the progressive jackpot. If you are lucky enough to get into a large payout game, even 3rd place will bag you 20% of the prize, 2nd taking away 30%, leaving 50% for the winner! Smaller prize pools however are winner take all, buckle up and get ready for some wild rides with these action-packed games.
There’s a healthy amount of Cash game action in both Hold’em and Omaha games. With games starting at €0.02/€0.04 and action all the way up to €5/€10. Most games are played on 6max tables with 9 handed games seeing fewer players.
A great deal of the action on the site is made up of heads up play, with stakes even as high as €50/€100 being played, so for any heads up specialist with this software in your arsenal, I would highly recommend giving it a try as there is money to be made here.
Sit n Go’s
The majority of the Sit n Go action on the site is made up of Heads up games starting with stakes of €5.50 all the way up to €1050 a game. The most commonly played games are Super Turbos and then Turbo games, with regular speed games getting some play too. If you are a heads up player, or just looking to play Sit n Go’s I can recommend this as a playing home, with Micro-Low stakes 6 max games also getting action it is a good place for beginner players to test the waters.
BetSafe poker players can qualify for the MPN Poker Tour, held at locations all over Europe such as Malta, Tallinn and Prague. The series boasts huge guaranteed prize pools with previous winners taking home over €150,000. The first way to get an MPNPT package is to win your way in through our online satellite system. The satellites range from €1 to €200. Every Sunday 3 Packages to the next live event are guaranteed with winners getting entry into both €550 main event and a €50 side event, 4 nights accommodation including breakfast along with €200 in your account for travel expenses.
There are 4 levels of the loyalty scheme within BetSafe poker, Silver, Gold, Platinum and the highest being Diamond. As you play on the site more you will unlock these reward levels and in turn unlock better rewards. 39 points will give you £1 cash, players earn 13.3 points per £1 raked in either tournaments or cash games. On top of this Bonus points are earnt on top of this basic reward, so depending on how much you play the rakeback can be a considerable amount.
Deposits and Withdrawals
Betsafe accepts all major Credit and Debit cards, you can also deposit using PaySafeCard, PayPal, Neteller, EcoPayz and Bank transfer methods, however, these can vary depending on the country you are accessing the site from. Ewallet withdrawals as always are instant, with Debit and Credit card withdrawals usually processed and in your account within 1-2 business days.
Betsafe poker can make a great addition for many Poker players. If you are a tournament player looking to take on the soft fields and build up a nice bankroll. A heads up Omaha and Hold’em players dream! This is really where this site comes alive, there is a wealth of action in heads up cash games and heads up sit n go’s. Drawbacks include not many high stakes tournaments due to limited players and barely any ring game Sit n Go traffic, so if either of these game types is your wheelhouse I would look for another site with more traffic.
