Introduction: is the fourth largest poker network in the world. It has an excellent reputation of reliability, value and customer service. Many of the skins on the iPoker network coincidentally have a large sportsbetting and casino client, which brings many unexperienced players to the site and makes up for a soft competition.

This especially applies to Betfair, as is the world’s largest online betting exchange. Betfair poker is a solid operator on the side. It offers great value to our grinders and has a long history of excelllent service. In addition  to that, it is know for safe and fast cashouts.

Traffic and Games:

Traffic separation between iPoker1 and iPoker2 occurs at NL2-NL200 shorthanded, NL2-NL100 full ring and all heads-up games. All other games (including speed poker tables of all limits) share player pools through the entire iPoker network. The traffic is very high with over 10k players at peak times and in addition to that a wide variety of games are available.

Games run in British Pounds (GBP) and Euros (EUR) and players can easily buy into games of either currency. No-Limit Hold’em traffic is excellent at all limits. Micro and low stakes traffic is huge with dozens of tables at each limit. Mid and high stakes traffic is good as well, with at least 4-5 tables running at each limit up to NL1k. The PLO traffic is also very decent at the micro stakes and good up to the high stakes with 6-8 tables running at PLO100 and PLO200, 3-4 games of PLO400 and 1-2 tables of PLO600 and PLO1K.

Speed poker runs from NL5-NL100 daily with 100-200 players per limit during peak hours. SNG and tournament traffic is very decent as well.


Software and Tracking:

iPoker uses the Playtech software, which is very reliable, functional and features everything you would expect from a good poker client. The lobby is easy to navigate and games are neatly sorted by currency, format and stake. On top of this, an excellent set of advanced filters are available to ensure you can quickly and easily find your game of choice. All standard options like auto-rebuy and auto-timebank are available, along with other advanced options to make multitabling very easy. Betting sliders can be tailored to your preference and a wide number of themes and layouts are available.

Betfair’s Lobby is is clearly arranged, well-structured and easy to navigate.

The tables are well-designed, easy to manage and include many features that benefit multitabling . A “Join Similar” button makes it very easy to add more tables of the same game/stake, In addition to that, there are a lot of useful buttons for e.g. sitting out next hand or next BB on one or all tables. The tables scale very well and the included tiling tool makes multitabling incredibly simple.

 Betfair’s tables look great, run smoothly and tile beautifully.

iPoker’s software is supported by Holdem Manager and Pokertracker. A large number of table and card modes are available as well as tools like betpot and automatic seating scripts.

Cashier and Payment Options:

Credit Card, Skrill, Neteller, Paypal, Ukash, ClickandBuy, Bank Transfer and Cheque are accepted as payment options. Cashouts are processed promptly and reliably.

Rake Structure and Rakeback:

Stake Rake Cap
NL2-NL4 6.67% €1
NL10 6.67% HU: €1 | 3-10 Players: €2
NL20-NL50 5% HU: €1 | 3-4 Players: €2 | 5-10 Players: €3
NL100-NL2K 5% HU: €1 | 3-4 Players: €2 | 5-10 Players: €3
NL5k+ 5% 2-3 Players: €2 | 4-10 Players: €5

Rake at Betfair Poker follows the above scheme and is calculated using the Weighted Contributed method.

Betfair Poker is a great choice for our grinders, who want their rake to be paid on weighted-contributed, not real player value. Players are paid 35% rakeback and the first deposit bonus of 200% up to €1.500 clears at an effective 20% rakeback.  Furthermore, our players are eligible for the Bank Job monthly reload bonus worth clearing €300 at 10%.


iPoker is for a good reason the third largest poker network in the world. Its player pool has a significant share of recreational players and visitors from the sportsbetting and casino clients, its software is top notch and its operators consistently provide excellent value and service to its players. Cashouts are paid super fast and very reliable. In addition, live support is available round the clock to quickly deal with any issues that may arise.

We recommend Betfair Poker to players seeking rakeback paid on weighted contributed terms in addition to great bonuses. Our Betfair Poker deal is one of our highest value deals.
