Owned by the UK based company PlayTech, iPoker is a massive network that includes 18 major poker sites. It was released in 1999, but the top websites that it includes are much older than that (for example Bet365, William Hill or Betfair). So iPoker basically unites some of the largest platforms into one place, and you have the possibility to play in any of them. It’s quite important to choose the right skin, as each one has its own pros and cons, and various bonuses and promotions. 

Today we will get a bit more into details about one of them and we will do a Betfair poker review. While the company is known for being one of the best sports betting platforms in the world, it also offers casino games and online poker. It is part of the iPoker network since 2013 and it is a safe and reliable place for both beginners and experienced players. 

It launched its first poker software in 2001, then was a part of the Ongame network for 2 years until it eventually joined iPoker. It is now one of the best skins in the network, it has a big base of players with plenty of cash games and tournaments, and offers good deposit bonuses and promotions. Part of the iPoker Network, Betfair is a great and reliable platform for players of all levels.

Nevertheless, as an advantage of working with us, RakeAdvisory has decided to boost all players to the highest VIP Level - Gold. Therefore, all our players will receive a 35% flat rakeback paid directly into their account by exchanging points into cash anytime they want.

€80K Exclusive Rake Races

This rake race is available for all players but is mostly recommended for high volume rake grinders, who can harvest the most benefits from it. It takes place in 4 equal weekly races, with 20K prize pool for each one as follows:

  • 1st - 7th of the month

€5k Exclusive Micro Twister Races

First 50 places are rewarded with tokens and only first three players earn cash prizes.


Betfair Poker Rake Calculation Method and Structure

Unlike most of the iPoker skins, Betfair charges players from Weighted Contributed Rake (old rake method) and not RPV. Therefore, no matter what kind of games they play, all players are also rewarded from WC rake. 


NLHE and PLO Rake Structure

Stakes Percentage Rake Cap (maximum rake)
    2 Players 3-10 Players
$0.01/$0.02 - $0.02/$0.05 6.67% $0.50 $0.50
$0.05/$0.10 6.67% $1.00 $2.00
$0.10/$0.20 5% $1. $2.00
$0.25/$0.50 5% $1 $3
$0.50/$1+ 5% $1 $4


MTTs and SNG Fees

The UK Poker skin of iPoker Network charges the following fees:
  • MTTS - 10%
  • SNGs - 6%
  • Twister SNGs - 7%


Betfair Poker hosts the same player pool with all other iPoker skins. According to Pokerscout, iPoker currently stands into top 10 online poker sites traffic leaderboard, based on traffic date provided by the networks. On a weekly basis there is an average of about 700 cash games players, while at peak hours, mostly during European evenings, you can see more than 1,250 grinders online.

Being an UK poker brand, Betfair's main currency is £ (GBP). Other available currencies are  €  (EURO) and $ (USD).



Just like all the other major poker sites, Betfair offers a wide variety of options for deposits and withdrawals (credit and debit cards, Paypal, Skrill, Neteller, bank transfers, checks and more). The minimum deposit is that of 6 Euro, which is much smaller than on other platforms.

Just be aware of their closed-loop policy. This means that you can only withdraw with a method that was also used for paying. So let’s say that you deposited 50 euro with PayPal and 100 with a credit card, and you play until you gain a total of 500 euro. Now you might want to withdraw the entire amount to your credit card, but first you must withdraw 50 to Paypal in order to close the loop. 




Software Features and Multitabling Capacity

Betfair uses the software of PlayTech which is fast and reliable, allowing you to play up to 16 open tables at the same time! It even has a feature that automatically resizes the window of each table, so they all fit on the screen. So if you are an experienced player, you can easily play multiple tables and make much more money at once. 

The display is easily recognizable and it matches the branding of the company, offering multiple customization options. When you sign up you receive a match bonus of your first deposit, tokens to play tournaments, free games and a cash bonus. This is a great welcome package and it’s definitely worth it to sign up and to download Betfair.


Poker Trackers Support and Software Compatible Versions

Betfair software is available in all compatible versions, from Windows desktop to iOS and Android devices. It is very user friendly and provides a really nice user experience. It also supports all available poker trackers: Holdem Manager 2 and PokerTracker 4. Therefore, players can customize their HUD and use poker statistics at the tables. Betfair is a great place for grinding Heads Up cash games and Twister Sit and Gos.
