App Review

Sky Poker offers an iOS App for iPhones and iPads. As mobile poker apps go, Sky Poker's is full of features that you would find on the downloadable or browser-based client.

The app allows you to play Hold'em, Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo cash games, sit 'n' go and multi-table tournaments on the move plus you have the ability to access your account to make deposits, withdrawals and check your hand history.

While there isn't currently an android app for Sky Poker, non-iOS users can play Sky Poker via their browser thanks to it being HTML5 powered.

About Sky Poker

Sky Poker offers all new customers a free £10 just for creating their Sky Poker account. All you need to do in order to get your hands on the free £10 is to follow these simple steps:

  • Download Sky Poker via PokerNews links
  • Use the promotion code "POKER" when you have created your Sky Poker Account
  • Wait for your free £10 to arrive!

The free £10 is made up of 2 x £2.20 tokens and 3 x £3.30 tokens. What's great about these tokens is that you can combine them all and play in a tournament of a higher value if that is what you'd prefer to do.

Sky Poker: Full Review

Available in both a downloadable client or via an Internet browser, Sky Poker has one of the most vibrant communities in the business and is a fun and relaxing place to play online poker. Sky Poker runs the UK Online Poker Series (UKOPS) a couple of times per year, an awesome festival of tournament action that awards big prizes for relatively low buy-ins.

Sky Poker Welcome Bonus

All new Sky Poker customers are entitled to a 200% up to £500 bonus based on the amount of their first deposit. The bonus clears in £10 increments each time you earn 250 Poker Points, with Poker Points earned at a rate of 6 per £1 contributed to the rake in cash games, and 10 Poker Points per £1 paid in tournament fees.

You have 30 days from the date of the bonus being issued to clear the full amount, any uncleared bonus is forfeited after this time. You must also play through the bonus amount once before it can be withdrawn.

All new players also receive £10 in tournament tickets for free just for creating a Sky Poker account; you don't even need to make a deposit to receive these tickets, how awesome is that? The free £10 is made up of two £2.20 tickets and two £3.30 tickets. You can combine the tickets if you wish to use them for a higher buy-in tournament, for example, you can use a £3.30 and £2.20 to enter a £5.50 tournament.
