Bet365 Poker Review 2014
200% up to €1,000 Bonus
Bet365 Poker overview 2014.
Bet365 is the most reputable poker room on the iPoker network. It is a great all-round room with an abundance of traffic and clear software. You cannot get rakeback at Bet365, but there is a decent VIP program to compensate.
- #3 in terms of traffic (so more than enough players) with very clear and easy to use software.
- Top UK poker room.
- No rakeback, but there is a great VIP points program in its place (exchange points for cash).
- The iPoker network does not accept US players.
Even though you cannot get rakeback at Bet365, I have spent a lot of time happily playing at this room because of the amount of traffic and no-nonsense software. The competition is easy enough to beat across many of the stakes, which makes Bet365 Poker a great option for a wide variety of players.
Bet365 is only let down by the absence of a direct rakeback deal. However, the VIP points program is good enough for the regular players to get a healthy amount of their rake back. The percentages are not as high as standard rakeback deals, but the Bet365 VIP scheme is one of the most profitable.
Bet365 competition and traffic.
- Very high volume of traffic (#3 for traffic).
- Loads of soft players. I have found some of the weakest tables to be at Bet365.
Bet365 is on the iPoker network, which currently sits at #3 for traffic (behind PokerStars and Full Tilt). This makes Bet365 the largest non-US online poker room, and you can be sure that finding a wide variety of soft tables at your desired stakes is not going to be any problem at all.
The high volume of traffic means that there is undoubtedly always going to be a steady flow of soft competition for you to take advantage of. I have personally had very profitable sessions at Bet365, which probably explains why I'm such a big fan of the room.
The high volume of traffic, with lots of it being nice and soft is the biggest selling point for Bet365.
- I really enjoy the software. Easy to use and no problems.
- Some players are far from being a big fan of the poker client.
- Not Mac comptaible.
The Bet365 (iPoker) software is very much love/hate. I have always enjoyed playing at Bet365 because I find the software to be:
- Very clear. You can always clearly see the action taking place whilst you play.
- Easy to use. I never have problems finding a table and taking a seat.
However, I am fully aware that some players have a great dislike for the software and do not enjoy using it. I can't see why myself, so it might be worth downloading Bet365 and trying out the play money tables before you play for real.
One final thing I should mention is that the tables are not resizeable, but instead you are provided with a mini-view option instead. This might not be everyone's cup of tea, but it serves its purpose well.
