Betfair Poker is owned and operated by the popular betting exchange Betfair. Because of it's large sports betting customer base the BetFair poker room is growing at a fast rate. The games on BetFair tend to be very loose because of the large number of people who have joined via the betting exchange.
The large amount of sports exchange customers guarantees a steady influx of fish and loose players. A good solid poker player could make a decent profit by joining the BetFair poker room. The software used is privately developed which is unusual these days but on the whole it's very good and has some nice features such as player notes, stats etc.
A good volume of players means you'll never be short of a game at a level which suits you and if you like to bet on sporting events then you may be interested in the BetFair loyalty programme which allows you to generate BetFair Points through poker play. Tthese points can then be used to reduce your commission rate on the BetFair Sports Exchange.
Bonuses & Promotions
BetFair are currently giving you the chance to earn $600 in free chips so for every 400 BetFair points you accumulate whilst playing real money games you will get $10 back into your account. Bonuses are paid every Wednesday for Betfair Points generated in the previous week and you have 60 days in which to earn and redeem the points back into cash. You'll need a promotional code to get this offer so check the BetFair website for details before you sign up.
Once the 60 day period is over you will still earn points and you can use them to pay for tournament entries instead of cash.
There’s certainly no shortage of big tournament games at BetFair with buy-ins as low as $3. BetFair's satellites also give you the opportunity to win seats at the varous poker tournaments around the world, including the WSOP, BAPT, EPT and Aussie Millions.
