Bet365 Poker App: Review, Download and Bonus

Next to sport betting and casino games the famous British bookmaker bet365 also offers poker. Those of you who’d like to play poker with your Android device, iPad or iPhone are just right at bet365. The poker room, which holds licences from Gibraltar and Schleswig-Holstein, has joined the iPoker network and was one of the first to release a poker App for iOS at iPoker. Obviously, also Android users can use the bet365 web app in their browser. Since its release the bet365 poker app has been expanded and improved several times and is now one of the best real money poker Apps on the market. In February 2016, we ran an extensive retest of the app. In this article we tell you how to play mobile poker at bet365 as well as about the app’s functions, and we also analyse the bet365 poker bonus. As always, you’re very welcome to ask all your questions concerning the bet365 Poker app and tell us what you’ve experienced yourself by using the comment function below.

Quick-Navigation: Our bet365 review at a glance

Registration at and download of the bet365 Poker App

Before we’ll be talking about the bet365 poker app advantages and disadvantages and all its functions, let’s have a look at how to quickly and uncomplicatedly get the app running on your mobile device. Fortunately, it’s really simple to get started at bet365 Poker. Since the bet365 poker app works with html5 it runs on almost every modern smartphone and tablet. If you’re using an Android device there is an apk available for you. When using your iPhone and iPad, you can poker directly within your phone’s browser. Readers in the UK, New Zealand and some other countries can also download the App from the iTunes Store. Depending on which operating system you’re using the procedures vary a little:

Reliable poker room or fraud? Our bet365 poker experience

If you want to poker with real money, you actually can’t be cautious enough. This is due to the fact that in the last couple of years, there have been some black sheep, which harmed the gambling industry’s reputation. This is why we’ve had a close look at the company behind bet365 for all those who wonder whether the poker room is reliable or not.

The company behind bet365 is one of the world’s largest providers of casino games, sport bets and poker. The business was established in 2000 and has, next to its online portals, also a huge number of stationary betting offices in Great Britain. Also bet365 is Stoke City’s jersey sponsor in the English Premiere League. With its 3000 employees and 21 million customers bet365 calls itself the biggest gambling provider worldwide.

All those are indications for bet365 being a reliable company. However, what might be even more important is that bet365 has been granted licences from and is controlled by not one but two European authorities. Next to its gambling licence from Gibraltar, which is valid for the whole EU, bet365 also has an online sport bets, online casino and online poker licence in the UK. On top of that, bet365 is licesed in the german state of Schleswig-Holstein. You can be certain that both, the English and the German authorities have had a detailed look at the company and they only grant licences to absolutely reliable poker rooms.

Last but not least also our own experience with bet365 poker is positive without exception. We’ve had a trustful cooperation with bet365 for a long time now and have been using the bet365 Poker App ourselves for years. If we had a problem, which was the case only very rarely, we experienced the bet365 customer service to be very helpful and competent. Especially the live chat, where the staff helps you immediately and in a very friendly way, is recommendable.

The bet365 Poker App test

Let’s now have a look at the current bet365 Poker App version. After having logged in you can choose your preferred gaming type and level in the bet365 lobby. The App suggests some Hold’em No Limit tables but you can also just switch to the lobby and choose from a bigger number of available tables and poker variants yourself.

The bet365 mobile poker gaming variants

As you can see in the screenshot above there are five categories to choose from in the gaming menu. When selecting Cash-Games you will only find No Limit Texas Hold’em ring games with two to six players. The stakes start at €0.02/€0.04 and go up to €2/€4. When selecting Speed you’ll find the so-called fast-fold tables. This is where you get seated at a new table when having folded your hand – this way you won’t get bored for sure. Twister is the name of the short and ultra fast Sit & Go tournaments that have only three players. At Twister a fortune wheel sets the prize pool randomly before the tournament starts, which means that with lots of luck the prize might be up to the thousand fold of your bet.

PokerStars was one of the first providers to offer those special kinds of Sit & Gos, calling them Spin & Gos. In the iPoker network those games are called Twister but they are just as good as the original. Next to Twister, bet365 also offers normal Sit & Go tables – there you can also play Limit Hold’em. And also tournaments are available in the bet365 Poker App. You have access to the full range of real money tournaments also when using the mobile version on your Android, iPhone or iPad. Compared to previous versions, this is one of the biggest improvements of the current bet365 Poker App. But also when compared to other iPoker Apps – some of them neither offer Sit & Gos nor tournaments – bet365 Poker leaves a very good impression.

Frequent Updates: These features were added to the bet365 poker app

bet365 poker is part part of Playtech’s iPoker network. Therefore, regular updates are guaranteed. It is not necessary to update the app manually. Due to the fact, that bet365 poker uses a html5 version that runs in your mobile browser, the most up to date version of the app is automatically available whenever you launch the poker software on your mobile. The most important updates, that were not available yet when we completely rewrote this review in 2016, are listed below:

Six Plus Hold’em

In Spring 2016, the new poker variant Six Plus Hold’em was added to the bet365 poker app. In this new version of Texas Hold’em poker, all cards below six are removed from the game. This makes the game quicker and more thrilling. You can play more starting hands (just because there is not so much rubbish you simply throw away), and therefore are less bored. But be aware: the rules at Six Plus Hold’em are quite different from regular Texas Hold’em.

For instance, three of a kind is now better than a Straight. And a Full House is beaten by a Flush. We recommend: You should definetly give Six Plus Hold’em a try. But you should take the time to make yourself familiar with the rules.

Room for improvement

Despite all the features and updates we mentioned above, there were some apects we missed when doing our retest in 2016. Other gaming variants like Omaha or Pot Limit are, except for the Sit & Gos, not available. And also when looking for full ring games with nine or ten players at the same table, one will search in vain. Concerning this, other providers have more to offer. However, for most poker players the range of poker variants and tables at bet365 is probably still satisfactory.

Game play and handling – this is how the App runs on smartphone and tablet

Both, on Android devices as well as on iPad and iPhone, the bet365 mobile poker App leaves a solid impression when it comes to technology. Technologically, the Android apk has an advantage when it comes to stability and performance. This is due to the fact that once you’ve installed the 50 MB on your Android smartphone, they don’t have to get reloaded and the App is available right away. The native iOS has the same advantage, but is not available in every country.

From our experience it can happen that when using the bet365 Poker App via Safari on an iPhone or iPad, the App has trouble loading and the poker client doesn’t start. When testing the App it happened a couple of times that the bet365 App got stuck with an empty green screen instead of loading the lobby. In that case you can just use the reload button in your browser. Once the App has been started, it runs smoothly, at least on newer devices. When playing in your browser, the App sometimes reacts a little slowly, especially when having a bad internet connection. Regarding this, the Android apk has an advantage. While playing at a table the game ran steadily, there were no crashes during our test.

Lately, there have been many changes to the table design of the mobile iPoker App. However, the table’s illustration is still pretty unspectacular and not clearly arranged. When playing at a speed poker table, on top of seeing the fold, call, check and bet/raise buttons you also see the speed fold options. Also, the bet slider has its problems. You can choose from two variants. It’s almost impossible to operate the bet slider accurately. In order to make a double action you have to make an additional click, which we found very annoying.

bet365 poker app ipokerCompared to the iPoker App’s old version the new table design is a lot more appealing.

Thanks to multi-tabling and fast fold the game play is very good

The bet365 Poker App has probably made the biggest improvement when it comes to the game play. Whereas it was common to play at only one table in the old iPoker client, the new App now also offers playing at different tables at the same time. This cannot be taken for granted when it comes to a mobile poker App and it is a real advantage, because there is hardly anything that’s more annoying than staring at your phone, waiting for your slow opponent to make his next move.

The bet365 Poker App allows you to open various tables at once. There is a small ‘+’ sign in the bar at the top of the screen. When clicking on that sign a menu will open that allows you to add another table. The screenshot above shows you an example of what the App looks like on an iPhone when you’re playing at three tables at the same time. Though the symbols are rather small, they still serve their purpose. You’re always informed about which cards you’re holding at which table. On top of that there is a white bar around the table symbol that shows you how much time you have left. If you want to switch between the tables manually, the icons are a little too small, at least on a smartphone. However, you can define in the settings (see next chapter) that you want the App to forward you to the next table automatically.

You can even play at different speed tables simultaneously, which makes it impossible to get bored during the game. With just a little practice the bet365 Poker App allows you to play almost as many tables as when using your desktop PC or Mac. What’s a little tricky though is to open an additional table. Because every time it’s your turn the App switches from the options menu back to the table – something that happens all the time when being at a speed table. Still, it is possible to play at three fast fold tables simultaneously as shown in the screenshot. If we manage to do so, you’ll do, too.

Let’s then talk about the number of players. Thanks to being member of the iPoker network, bet365 scores in this case. Next to PokerStars, 888poker and FullTilt, iPoker is one of the most frequented places for online poker. You will definitely not have problems finding a full table to play at.

Settings and configuration: The functions of the bet365 Poker App

You can configure the bet365 Poker App just the way you like it. The menu gives you a number of more or less useful setting options, which we’ll explain to you now.

In the home screen you can define, which page you want to open when the App starts. “Home” is the standard setting, “games” shows the gaming lobby and “favourites” opens an overview of the poker tables you’ve marked or played at most recently. When clicking on General you have the possibility to switch off information about promotions and bonus offers.

In the Table settings you can, among other things, define whether you want to hide your folded cards automatically and whether you want to refill your chip stakes automatically when playing ring games. On top of that, you can select from two different bet slider versions. As mentioned before we regard both of them to be improvable. Double action has the disadvantage that you always have to make an additional click in order to see the raise options. When making single actions we were missing comfort buttons like x1/2 pot, x2, x3, pot and all-in. Under Time bank you can make your settings concerning what will happen when your time at a table has run out. In case you want to use the multi-tabling option, click on more tables and you can define if you want the App to switch the table for you and when to do so. However, we really liked the pre-settings. If you rather have if differently, the bet365 Poker App allows you to configure the client according to your preferences at all times.

bet365 poker app optionenGreat: In the settings you can even define how you want the App to react when doing multi-tabling.

You can also choose a four-colour-deck when being in the submenu cards.Erreichbarkeit aus. And the bet365 Poker App even has a left-handers mode, where the most important buttons are placed on the other side of the screen. In order to activate this mode you have to select the submenu accessibility.

All other menu items are either self-explanatory or the functions aren’t really relevant, which is why we won’t go into detail with them. All in all, the bet365 Poker App’s customizability is ideal – even though some menu items could have been combined into one in order to improve the App’s arrangement.

Playing on your desktop: bet365 Poker for PC and Mac

Obviously, bet365 Poker is not only available for Android and iOS. If you not only like playing poker on your smartphone and tablet, but also on your PC or Mac, you might be interested in the bet365 Poker download software. In order to get this software follow this link with your PC, Mac or laptop and click “download”. The software is rather small and can therefore get downloaded and installed very fast. All previously mentioned poker games are also available in the bet365 software for PC and Mac – and even more. The desktop software also offers Omaha tables, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7 Card Stud, 5 Card Stud and Razz Limit.

From our experience the bet365 Poker desktop software is a great supplement to the mobile poker software. Though we’re sure you will hardly miss anything when using the App since it offers many different games and tables.

The bet365 poker bonus

In the beginning of 2015, bet365 changed its welcome bonus offer. According to bet365 the goal was to make the bonus even more appealing for recreational players. bet365 offers a 100% poker bonus of up to 100 Euros..In addition to that, every new player who makes a deposit gets tournament vouchers worth 5 Euros. The minimum deposit is 10 Euros. That means that when depositing 10 Euros or more, bet365 doubles your deposit and gives you tokens worth 5 Euros on top.

Terms and conditions check: bet365 Poker’s bonus conditions

Readers often ask us of dubious methods and fraud in the online poker industry, but when it comes to bet365 Poker, there is one thing we can tell you for sure: when depositing money at bet365 and accepting the bonus offer you don’t have to worry about possible traps. bet365’s bonus conditions and terms and conditions are absolutely fair. You can withdraw the money that you’ve deposited at any time. The only thing that might happen is that bet365 asks you to prove your identity by presenting a copy of your ID and/or your current bill. However, this is not to annoy you, but it is due to international money-laundering laws. This being said, bet365 acts absolutely reliable by asking you to verify your identity.

Let’s now have a look at the bonus conditions. Actually, it’s really simple: the bonus is granted to you subsequently step by step. You can unlock it bit by bit and thereby avoid having to stick to any kind of limitations when it comes to withdrawing money early. Since 2015, unlocking your bonus has gotten even easier. For 50 credit points you get the first Euro, you unlock another 4 Euros by reaching 300 credit points. Afterwards you can unlock 5 Euros in cash with every 450 credit points you make.

Advantages for beginners at bet365

Next to the new and easy to unlock bonus also the beginner-tables were one reason for us to mark bet365 as an especially beginner-friendly poker room. For the first 90 days after your registration you’ll be allowed to play at tables that are exclusive for new players. But be aware: even though you’re at a table for beginners there might be really strong opponents waiting for you. This is due to the fact that not the player’s ability is measured, but only the date of ones registration at bet365 is taken into account. That means that even people who have been playing at PokerStars for years are allowed to play at beginner tables. Nevertheless, tables for beginners are a great idea, because at least they prevent professional players from ripping off new players systematically in the long run.

Our test result

Thanks to the mobile bet365 Poker App friends of Texas Hold’em and Speed Poker have the possibility to play in the iPoker network with their Android device, iPad and iPhone. In 2015 and 2016, the App was improved constantly and it now offers a lot of fun and variety. Especially great are the thrilling Twister Sit & Go tournaments as well as the fact that you can play at different tables simultaneously. But also the diverse configuration possibilities, especially the layout for left-handers, are very persuasive. There is only one real disadvantage: bet365 doesn’t offer Omaha poker in the mobile version. Also, if next to using real money you want to play in the play money mode you’ll get disappointed. Therefore, the App is mainly interesting for fans of Texas Hold’em real money poker. In case you haven’t registered at bet365 so far you can profit from the 100 Euro bonus and the additional 5 Euro voucher.
