Sky Poker is one of the leading UK poker sites and it has plenty of games, bonuses and promotions. It is owned by the huge company Sky Broadcasting and one of the benefits that no other poker sites can offer is the possibility to be featured in televised tournaments on Sky TV.
Sky Poker Software
The platform is user friendly and works very smoothly, being developed by Orbis Technology. While they initially started with just a desktop client, now they have a mobile app too. This way players can have a quick game of poker wherever they want and whenever they have a few spare minutes. They are a stand-alone website, and not a part of a network.
Like most other websites, the main game is the Texas Hold’em, but they also have good action at the PL Omaha and Omaha Hi-Lo games. There are cash games, tournaments and sit & go-s. Most players are choosing to play micro and middle stakes, but they do also have some high stake games that can go up to £ 100 / £ 200.
The website is regulated and licensed, and known as a safe place to play poker.
Sky Poker Bonus
The initial bonus is that of 200% of your first deposit, up to £ 500. But as a new player you will also get a Welcome Package that includes £ 10 in Tourney Tokens. You can then use this money to enter various tournaments on the site.
In order to release the initial bonus, you must play as much as possible. You will earn poker points and be able to release the bonus in increments of £ 10. To release it even quicker, play Sit & Go tournaments where you can double the points.
Sky Poker Deposits and Withdrawals
Deposits are simple and easy, and you can choose one of the following methods: credit or debit cards, Paypal or Neteller. The same methods are available for payouts and you must use the same one you did when you made the deposit.
Bank transfers take between 2 and 5 days, while Paypal and Neteller about 1 day.
Sky Poker Tournaments
They have a multitude of daily, weekly and monthly tournaments, with buy ins to suit all players. The Friday Main Event tournament is broadcasted live on Sky TV, as well as other important events throughout the year.
You can also play the Bounty Hunter tournament where you get money for each player that you eliminate. And there are many more others to choose from.
Their website also includes an “Academy” section with free tutorials and lessons for beginner and intermediate players. Even though it is not part of a network, thus having a limited amount of traffic, Sky Poker is still a great place to play for UK residents, and not only. Cash games can have up to 700 players at rush hours, while tournaments can raise up to 5,000 players, which is not bad at all for a stand-alone website.All news
