Betfair Poker is a part of the massively popular iPoker Network and is owned and operated by The Sporting Exchange Ltd., the biggest sports exchange in the world.

Betfair Poker has a very active player base and always had a solid reputation. Betfair’s now a major player in the European online poker market with massive promotions, dependable software, and access to an enormous sports exchange customer base.

PlayTech developed the current Betfair Poker software by utilizing its famous iPoker platform that houses other major poker sites. Game play is very good overall, with player notes, easy-to-use stats functions and a solid overall feel. More than anything, it is paramount that it’s one of the more stable poker clients.

The loose play is perhaps is the best feature of Betfair that tends to come from sports bettors looking to try a hand of poker with new found cash. The absence of American players is the major drawback of Betfair and this means that if it isn’t prime time in Europe there’s a serious lack of action on the site.

The overall traffic volume is in the middle segment of the industry. Real-money player statistics as of March 2015 show 1200 ring-game players at peak hours, and 4000 tournament players at peak hours.
