Games

This is a site that gives you poker and then some. Texas Hold’em poker remains by far the most popular format of poker games, but we have also identified a growing trend of Omaha players – particularly at stakes of $0.50/$1.00 and higher.

There are plenty of Sit & Go games and multitable tournaments available for players, and most of them have buy-ins of less than $10.00. Usually BetOnline poker tournaments have unlimited re-buys for the first hour and an optional add-on at the first break.

Traffic

This site is American-friendly and is growing in popularity almost daily as a result of its consistent payouts, reliable software and excellent bonus. The poker product is relatively new and is most active during American peak hours, but due to the site´s worldwide appeal, you will find plenty of action at the tables all through the day and night.

Quality

BetOnline has a talent pool that is considered soft. This may be partly due to its relative youth, and as the American poker-playing population finds this site more and more friendly the quality should improve. As with most soft sites, the majority of games are for lower stakes, but during peak hours plenty can be found to pad the bankroll. As an all-in-one site, there are more occasional players than many other online poker site, and this can mean playing against unpredictable opponents. In the long run though, this will usually pay off for the more experienced player.

Features

The poker client is simple and easy to control. Without fancy graphics the client tends to run smoothly and swiftly. Those interested in the casino element, those games are played directly through your browser. A buddy feature allows you to play with the same players easily. Multi-tiling makes it a snap to play multiple tables at a time.

Banking

This site has been designed to handle a great variety and volume of deposits and payouts. Over the years they have figured out just what it is that players from all countries require and how to give it to them. This is much appreciated by the American community. It is regarded as very safe and secure, and deposits are usually available without delay. The payout options are varied enough to let you choose the one that works best for you. They offer fast payment through MoneyGram and Western Union.

VIP

There is an automatic VIP program that players who play money games are able to take advantage of. Every dollar of rake paid earns the player ten Player Option Points, redeemable for ever better prizes, such as free tournament entry.
