Sky Poker: Full Review
Sky Poker is the online poker arm of the entertainment giant British Sky Broadcasting (BSkyB), a publicly listed company with a turnover of billions.
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.
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?
