New Legislation to Safeguard Players’ Money
We all know the major poker networks and sites and it’s the usual suspects such as Full Tilt, PokerStars and Party Poker. However, those aren’t the only places that offer high-level poker services and there are many sites which don’t necessarily specialise in poker but offer awesome online poker anyway. We thought we put all of the non-specialist poker sites into one handy list, so if you get sick of ‘all poker, all the time’, you can check out these sites.
Playing on major poker networks can sure be fun: the community, the tournaments and the sites are all totally geared towards poker players. But what kind of a poker experience do you get at other major gambling sites, which have other gambling products such as casinos, sports betting and even bingo on them too? Here are the top five non-specialist poker sites which we love to play at.
Featuring a sleek interface and smooth user experience, Betway by no means is an expert in poker. Arguably, the site is mostly known for its sports and virtual sports betting, but there is a casino and bingo rooms as well.
So what’s good at Betway Poker? Well, the stakes are high and the games are quite exciting, plus you’ve got a £750 welcome bonus waiting to be picked up when you deposit. There are free rolls, fast-and-furious tournaments, special weekly promos and rewards to loyal customers. Even though some might prefer the instant-play, the poker client is downloadable too, so you can easily access it anytime straight from your desktop.
And did we mention the site is gorgeous and pure pleasure to play at? Yes we did, but it’s worth saying again. Do check it out.
We love it for the slots, we love it for its sports betting and we love it for its ‘no bullshit’ approach. Betsafe is a real kicker when it comes to online poker and they offer it as instant-play or a downloadable client.
The one thing that will make you decide to go Betsafe all the way is the welcome bonus. Starting t just €25, but going up to a massive €1,000, you decide how big your welcome bonus is going to be. The more you play, the more you gain – when you reach a threshold of the bonus, a certain percentage of the welcome bonus funds is released and credited to your account.
And you will certainly find where to use that cash. When you register for a Betsafe poker account, you are automatically invited to the newbie tournament for six consecutive weeks. The New Player Turbo every Wednesday has got €500 guaranteed and the New Player Freeroll on Wednesdays also has €1,000 added, so both are a great way to give a little oomph to your account.
What do 10 million online gamers have in common? Well, they are all registered users at Unibet, where they not only get to enjoy casino games, sports betting, bingo and live dealer tables, but also get £10 when they register, no deposit necessary.
But the free tenner is just the tip of the iceberg that is Unibet poker. New players also get four entries to the weekly €500 Welcome Freerolls, much like the one at Betsafe, and also a free €2 Unibet Open qualifier ticket.
When you’re done with the newbie events, there’s plenty to get involved in. Take part in one of the countless tourneys, complete challenges which bring you rewards as soon as you muster enough loyalty points and unlock achievements that can pave a way to a tremendous poker career for you. Unibet really does offer it all, including a black and green environment that’s sleek and highly professional – you know your money is safe with these experts of the gambling industry.
We all know that Bet365 is the number one sports betting site out there, but have they got anything going on in terms of poker? You bet they do. Not only will you qualify for up to €100 new players bonus when you register, but you tournament tokens worth €5, which is an awesome opportunity to jump straight into the poker action.
And Bet365 has a schedule jam packed with action, starting with the dozens of tournaments of all shapes and sizes that run every day, and ending with the monthly missions which feature guaranteed prize pools of up to €25k.
What’s more is that the red carpet is rolled out and no expense is spared when it comes to Bet365’s VIP customers. Depending on your VIP level, there are cash rewards, bonus rewards, tournament token rewards and much more to be had. Just make sure you check out Bet365 via their mobile app for improved user experience, faster gameplay and exclusive features not available on instant-play.
William Hill Poker
Last but certainly not least is William Hill Poker. The site, famous for its sports betting, has plenty to offer to those who prefer poker instead. First up, you’re welcomed with a mega bonus: up to £1,200 first deposit bonus money, Gifts Palooza Freeroll entry (game consoles and lots of other tech gear on offer) and a free tenner if you wish to enjoy some casino games too.
Clearly that’s not all. This modern and gorgeous looking site, available for both download and instant play, has tournaments with gigantic prizes guaranteed. In fact, William Hill guarantee €5,000,000 in prizes every single month. Yup, that’s six zeros. And that’s the benefit of playing at a massive gambling brand – the prize pools are massive too.
In addition to all that dosh, there are the missions that you can part-take to win even more cash, participate in other promotions and get into the Players Club rewards programme and score extra special rewards. Count us in!
