Games Offered at Betfair Poker
Betfair Poker is part of the iPoker Network, which is one of the busiest online poker networks in the world. There are cash games running around the clock with stakes ranging from €0.01/€0.02 up to €5/€10.
Most of the traffic is found at the six-handed no limit hold’em tables, although there is plentiful traffic in the six-handed pot limit Omaha tables, too. All games are naturally busier during the peak European hours of 6:00pm CET to midnight.
Betfair Poker customers can enjoy Speed Poker, an exciting format that allows you to play hundreds of hands every hours. Instead of being seated at the same table for the duration of your play, you get to change table and opponents each time you fold! Don’t like the cards you have been dealt? Simply click the speed fold button and are instantly whisked away to a new table with new opponents and cards! You can do this as frequently as you like until you find hole cards that you are happy to play.
Twister Poker, a special sit and go tournament format, is also available at Betfair Poker. The tournaments are played three-handed and to a hyper-turbo blind structure and, with the prize randomly selected at the start of the tournament. The software randomly selects a prize pool amount of between twice and 1,000 times the initial buy-in and the winner-takes-all!
