About bwin Poker

Background

Bwin Poker was established in 1999 and operates under licenses issued in Kahnawake (Canada), Germany, Italy, Gibraltar, Argentina, Mexico and Austria.

bwin Poker is hosted by the Ongame Network, one of the industry's leading online poker client networks. Ongame's servers are located in Kahnawake, Canada and headquarters are located in Vienna, Austria.

Limits and Rake

At the no-limit Texas hold'em tables, the limits are spread to target all players, from beginners to advanced.

Starting at the micro limits, $0.05/$0.10, the limits progressively increase through $50/$100.

The limit tables begin at the comparatively higher limit level of $0.15/$0.30, and build all the way to the nosebleed $500/$1,000 level.

Pot-limit hold'em begins at the same level as the no-limit hold'em tables, but the tables finish at $5/$10.

The stud and Omaha tables focus on micro limit play and max out at $50/$100 and $25/$50, respectively.

Bwin Poker applies a rake that is generally measured at 5% of the pot and capped at $3. This cap can be as low as $1, depending on factors such as pot size, the number of players involved and the limit level.

Player Traffic

Player traffic generally peaks close to 5,000 players in a given 24-hour period and, as is generally the case across all the major online poker rooms, the players at bwin tend to congregate at the no-limit Texas hold'em tables.

Action can also be found at the stud, Omaha, and draw tables, although the numbers are comparatively sparse. In general, if players are eager to compete at the Texas hold'em tables, they have little trouble finding their preferred limit level.

Playability

Bwin Poker offers a clean and well-designed lobby, courtesy of the Ongame Network. Tabbed browsing makes game type, table, and limit selection a breeze. The table/tournament description on the right hand side of the lobby is detailed and thorough, including such statistics as players per flop, average pot size, and hands played per hour. The lobby chat box allows players to talk amongst themselves when searching or waiting for a table.

As for the tables themselves, running hand details are displayed below the community cards, meaning that players can keep up with their hand strength, quickly and easily.

Hot keys and check boxes further help speed up gameplay. The running totals of the pot sizes are welcome but sometimes a little hard to see. Games move quickly and not hindered by lengthy animations. The instant play feature allows play on any computer, be it Mac, Linux or Windows.
