Games and Tournaments

Bet365 Poker is now on the iPoker network with a number of other high-profile companies and offers a range of game formats, including Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha High-Low, 5-Card Stud, 7-Card Stud and the new and exciting Six Plus Hold’em as of early 2016. Stakes range from $0.05/$0.10 right up to $100/$200 in cash games, and you can also enter Sit & Go Tournaments with a buy-in of between $1 and $10,000. You can also arrange a private game by setting up your own table with your own stakes if you like, and for those who want to limit the field, the Premium tables are populated solely with Bet365 Poker players and can net you even more Merit Points in certain promotions. As with many other sites, there are games available to players of any ability or budget.


Graphically, Bet365 Poker offers no frills and is not quite as impressive as some of its rivals in this area, although once you are through to the lobby and join the rest of the vast iPoker network there is much to admire. The table is clean and inoffensive, you can choose your own avatar and the speech bubbles which emanate from the seats during chat are a novel touch, even if the animation of the cards being dealt is far too fast to be worth having and the audio is fairly mundane.

Functionality and Features

Fortunately, what Bet365 Poker lacks in appearance, it certainly more than makes up for in ease of use. Selecting different options during play is easy, the screen is tidy and the menus are close at hand. The volume of players on the site - it has an enormous share in the market - also guarantees a wide range of abilities, meaning that there will always be someone to square up against in a good, even battle, whatever your level of experience. As an added bonus, Bet365 Poker provides a number of very useful extra features, such as a great online tutorial, a poker school, weekly freerolls and a monthly €100,000 Road to Big Sunday tournament.

The Poker School deserves a mention here; it’s by far one of the best we’ve ever seen. It discusses the basics of poker, including hand rankings, but then provides some incredible guides for bankroll management, online etiquette and hugely detailed strategies for beginner, intermediate or advanced play in all major poker variants.

Bet365 Poker Bonuses and Promotions

New players earn a deposit match of 100% between £/€10 and £/100, and the bonus is released incrementally as you earn Merit Points. All players from the UK and Ireland are also eligible for a free £/€5, although no withdrawals are possible until you have deposited at least another £/€10 or played a minimum of 50 raked hands. There are also plenty of promotions running, including chip bonuses and pay-to-play opportunities. Players can also take advantage of the mobile function which allows you to play using your Bet365 account from a remote device when you’re on the go.

The VIP scheme at Bet365 Poker is based on Merit Points, which can be earned whenever you use your own cash to play poker. For every £1 or €1 in rake or tournament fees that you spend, you’ll earn 15 Merit Points. If you get to the top of the ladder, you’ll be able to grab cash rewards and bonuses.


Overall, this is a very good online poker room suitable for both casual and serious players. With a bit of work on the aesthetics it could be a real market leader. The Premium tables are an especially nice touch for those who like to keep the field at bay. It’s definitely worth checking out.
