Sky Poker Bonuses and Rewards

Other regular promotions include freeroll tournaments, a large 200% up to £500 first deposit bonus and the chance to become a member of Sky Poker's Pro team!

Player Traffic

Sky Poker's traffic is on the low side but that is mainly because it only offers its services to customers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Bulgaria, Finland, Gibraltar, Guernsey and Jersey. At time of writing, the aforementioned countries are all that are serviced.

Peak cash game traffic is from 18:00-23:00 UK time although cash games do run 24/7, but mainly at the lower end of the buy-in spectrum. Multitable tournaments are popular on Sky Poker, particularly the Bounty Hunter tournaments that run frequently.


The Sky Poker lobby is easy to navigate and you can be sat at a cash game or registered for a tournament in just a few clicks of your mouse. The software is basic but functions well, while the colour scheme is easy on the eye.

Software and Extra Features

The Sky Poker software is available in download or non-download guises and performs how you would expect a first-rate online poker site's software to perform. Some features such as auto top-up are not available at present, but the Sky Poker development team are constantly updating and improving the software.

Customer Service

Sky Poker delivers 24hr online support through their large team. Their Support Centre agents offer free phone support, support via email, a live chat feature and an extensive Q&A database on the Sky Poker site.
