BetOnline Poker Room Review
Another U.S. player-friendly poker room with a sportsbook, casino and racebook attached is the BetOnline Poker Room. This poker room has been growing since the well-established online gaming brand decided to continue to provide poker to the U.S. market following Black Friday in 2011.
Uncomplicated software makes for easy navigation of the tables, which are limited even at peak hours. Most of the cash game action is micro-level, but some higher stakes games are available during peak hours, when more than a thousand players will be logged in. Poker variants currently offered at BetOnline Poker include Texas Holdem, Omaha and Omaha High/Low.
Bonuses are essentially non-existent, but instead players are offered a chance to build a bankroll via a selection of daily freeroll tournaments. Players can also earn promo points that can be used for tournament entries and sign up bonuses are available through affiliates.
The combination of smaller size fields, and BetOnline Poker’s guarantee of $150k in tournaments every month, gives the tournament action good value on your grinding dollar. Freerolls are run every hour, with many of them paying the top 30 or 40 finishers.
The big seller at BetOnline Poker is the player pool. Considered one of the best sites for weak players, BetOnline is filled with beginner U.S. players and sportsbook and casino spill over. The simple software keeps you from bogging out your system when multi-tabling, allowing a skilled player to potentially earn at a better pace in the lower-stakes games.
Site capabilities include hand histories, re-sizing of tables, notes on opponents and smooth multi-tabling. Mac users enjoy a version that is just as reliable as the Windows version and players can choose between two layout options (classic or modern).
BetOnline Poker does not yet offer mobile poker. Mobile apps offer only sportsbook and casino action, but mobile poker is expected to eventually follow.
Live betting exists in the sportsbetting realm only. Punters can make live bets during games, but no live poker options are available at BetOnline Poker.
