Betfred Poker Review

Betfred are a well established Independent bookmaker in the UK and the Betfred Poker website has been around since 2005. Using Playtech software the Betfred poker site isn't exactly at the cutting edge of innovative poker sites, but it does offer a pretty pleasant online poker experience.

The Poker UK website has high traffic numbers (although no US players are accepted) so tables fill up quickly and there is usually a table to be found at the level you want. You do need to download some poker software before you can start to play , but this is a pretty painless exercise and only takes a couple of minutes.

  • Deposit £5 and receive a £10 bonus (Ts & Cs apply).
  • Fast and knowledgeable customer support through a variety of channels.
  • Strong diversity of banking methods on both the deposit and the withdrawal side.
  • Fun, intuitive software that's easy to install and helps you make the most of every moment.

There are a good variety of games available at Betfred Poker with various limits. The micro games limits are as low as a few pence while stakes rise to as high as £75.00. Texas Hold'Em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo and Seven Card Stud are all available to play.

Player levels can vary wildly as there are a lot of good players playing the Betfred poker site. But it also attracts non poker players from the sports betting and casino sites who are just trying poker for a change and you can come across some very loose play at some tables.

  • Juicy "deposit £5 and receive £10" bonus first deposit for new players
  • Good range of banking options in the cashier offer speedy deposits and withdrawals
  • Round-the-clock support by fast and reliable team
  • Diverse skill levels ranging from green to professional players give you chance to build pot and experience


  • Older software may not work as well on some computers
  • US players no longer accepted

Player Skill Levels

The overall skill level of the players on this poker site is average. There are a fair number of fish for the professional to poach, and soft players just looking for fun are also great for serious beginners to learn on and get experience playing against.



Promotions and Support

A first deposit match of 100% up to $600 is also on offer when you join the Betfred Poker UK website. Loyalty points can be collected when users take part in real money games. Support is provided around the clock and players can make contact by email, phone and live chat options. The email response can take some time so we recommend the online chat support as it is extremely quick. Support staff deal with queries courteously and quickly and we've found them to be extremely clued up when having to use them. There is also a Frequently Asked Questions section at the website that does provide some on the spot answers to common queries.
