Bettsson Poker has a long history as being very reliable and secure. The site Betsson was originally a sports betting site and Betsson Poker celebrated 10 years in the business in 2014. Betsson Poker has a name that will be familiar to the majority of online poker players today. Betsson Poker runs on the ever reliable and well known MicroGaming Network. The company is supported on the Swedish Stock Exchange which gives some indication of how well backed the site is. Betsson as an overall company run across multi sites, and have what some would call a small gambling empire. The parent company of Betsson own three other MicroGaming sites which are Betsafe, Nordic Bet and TrioBet.

Betsson Poker offer players a varied range of cash games. These games include Texas Limit Hold’em, NL and PL Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud and 5 Card Draw. Texas Limit Hold’em is the most popular choice for players by a long way. This is where players will find the most competition on the site, these tables prove to be the busiest traffic wise. Cash and Sit and Go tables are available to play at 24/7 with a range of buy in amounts. The tournament schedule at Betsson is well organised and players will find a good amount of high stakes action at these tournaments. Traffic is always highest during European Peak hours.
Bonuses and Promotions on Offer
Betsson Poker offer customers a choice of three different sign up bonuses. The lowest deposit bonus is €100 and the highest available deposit bonus is €1000. As there is no minimum deposit amount for the site, many will think that it makes the most sense to go for the largest bonus. However the larger the amount of the bonus opted for the more difficult it becomes for the player to have it released to them. Low stakes or recreational players may find it a lot more beneficial for them to opt for the lower bonus amounts. In contrast to this highly frequent players or those who contribute a lot to the site may find that the higher deposit bonuses are better for them. There are three deposit codes to unlock each of the bonus amounts MPOKER100, MPOKER300 and MPOKER1000. Each number in these codes is in relation to the amount of money that each will grant the player. Players should note that they have 60 days to release all of the money as any left will not be released after this time.
Software and Features
As previously mentioned Betsson Poker runs on an incredibly reliable and trusted network, as such the software runs much like one would expect it to. It is fast and secure, with a clean look. However, those players who are after an intense graphics or visual experience whilst playing online poker will be disappointed. Betsson Poker does not offer the slick graphics or 3d avatars of other sites which it is in competition with. Some of the features it does boast that make it very playable is the ability to turn chat off, which a lot of sites do not offer. Players are able to take notes on opponents and add colour tags to them if the so wish. Betsson also offer the option to play poker in a browser or to download which is a nice choice to have, especially for Mac users. Although it does lack aesthetically, the speed and reliability of the site makes up for this.
