2017 Review of Sportsbetting Poker
SportsBetting is an all in one betting site that opened a poker section fairly recently. You wouldn’t know it from the slick setup they have already put in place, and the amount of traffic they are seeing is growing accordingly. The full service casino and betting element offers a great variety of other games to play. Their experience in the online betting world has given them a good pedigree when it comes to the safety and security of player deposits. This can appeal in particular to American players.
Visit the website, sportsbetting.ag, register an account and download a small client. Now you will have access to poker, gambling, sports betting, whatever suits your fancy. The software is available for PC or Mac, is simple to get used to, and will let you find poker games (or other games) of all stake levels with ease.
This site is primarily a gambling site just as BetOnline Poker (which is on the same Chico Network). Sportsbook Poker is not exclusively designed with poker players in mind. But if you like to get bonuses and reloads all through your career this could be just the place you want to be.
The Sportsbetting Poker bonus is a massive 200% match on deposits up to $1,250. This means that is you deposit $1,250, the bonus you are entitled to is $2,500. The bonus is released at five specific stages as you reach POP milestones – POP Points being the currency you collect for contributing to the rake in ring games or for paying a fee to enter an online poker tournament(*).
You get 120 days to clear as much of the bonus as possible – an extraordinarily generous length of time compared with some online poker sites – and the POP Points you collect clearing the bonus can then be redeemed through the Sportsbetting Poker VIP program.
(*) The minimum fee to qualify for POP Points in Sit & Go games and multitable tournaments is $1.00. Therefore you will not earn POP Points in Sit & Go games and multitable tournaments with a buy-in of less than $10.00 + $1.00.
This is a site that gives you poker and then some. They offer Omaha and Stud games in addition to Texas Hold’em, though that last remains by far the most popular and most played. The majority of money is to be found in those games or in the guaranteed money tournaments which are exclusively played at Texas Hold´em.
As a growing site there will surely be more options in the near future, but for now most games and players are to be found during US peak hours. Out of peak hours, the site offers many other gambling options to keep things fresh and interesting for its users. Sports, casino games, horses, almost anything you can think of is available here.
Though the poker element of this site is fairly new, it has found popularity and fairly consistent players. Their appeal is mainly to the American base and this has led to most play happening during American peak hours. There are enough guaranteed money tournaments to draw players of all types, and the payouts are reliable leading to plenty of repeat traffic.
As a primarily gambling site, SportsBettting is generally considered a soft poker site. Plenty of fish, and enough tables in play during peak hours to make some good money for the experienced grinder. It is a fairly new site that attracts primarily occasional rather than dedicated players. It is very likely that the quality of player will improve with time.
The poker client is well refined, fun and easy to use. You can search for a variety of factors and join a variety of games with ease. There are plenty of customizable options to suit every type of player. Playing many poker tables at once, or playing in the casino while you are waiting around in tournament play are equally easy through this site.
Support is available both through email and live chat options, and the site has been around long enough to have a reputation as well run. There is also a phone support system that can take care of your every need.
One of the great advantages to an established betting site is that it obviates some player worries about the safety and security of their money. For both deposits and withdrawals, SportsBetting has years of experience and knows how to handle all its client needs. There are a great variety of deposit options, all securely managed. Payouts are done more swiftly than many a site, and few problems have been reported.
Players who play in money games are automatically enrolled in a VIP program. You earn redeemable points for every time you play. These can allow you to enter various tournaments for free or at defrayed costs, which gives you a great incentive to spend more of your time at this site.
