About Betfair Poker
On February 1, 2016, Irish gambling giant Paddy Power Plc and Betfair Plc merged in a deal that created one of the largest gambling companies in world, one valued at more than £4 billion. It goes without saying that this newly merged company is one of the most financially secure in the world and one that can be trusted with your funds.
Betfair Poker runs on the busy iPoker Network, where there are plentiful cash games running all day. The room also features to a busy tournament schedule that awards millions of Euros each month.
What sets Betfair Poker apart from the rest, are its lucrative exclusive promotions and the fact your Betfair Poker account can be used to access Betfair's other products such as the betting exchange, the sportsbook and a wide array of fun and exciting casino games.

Games Offered at Betfair Poker
Betfair Poker is part of the iPoker Network, which is one of the busiest online poker networks in the world.
Betfair offers cash games running around the clock with stakes ranging from €0.01/€0.02 up to €5/€10.
Most of the traffic is found at the six-handed no limit hold'em tables, although there is plentiful traffic in the six-handed pot limit Omaha tables, too. All games are naturally busier during the peak European hours of 6:00pm CET to midnight.
Betfair Poker customers can also enjoy Speed Poker, an exciting format that allows you to play hundreds of hands every hour.
Instead of being seated at the same table for the duration of your play, you get to change table and opponents each time you fold.
Don’t like the cards you have been dealt? Simply click on the "speed fold" button to be instantly whisked away to a new table with new opponents and cards! You can do this as frequently as you like until you find hole cards that you are happy to play.
Twister Poker, a special sit and go tournament format, is also available at Betfair Poker. Twister Poker tournaments are played three-handed to a hyper-turbo blind structure and with the prize randomly selected at the start of the tournament.
Right before the first hand is dealt, the software randomly selects a prize pool amount of between twice and 1,000 times the initial buy-in - and the winner-takes-all!
Each month, Betfair Poker created what it calls missions, which are simple poker-related tasks that players are encouraged to complete such as playing a specific tournament or a certain number of cash games. Completing missions results in tournament tokens being added to your account and adds some value to your play at the site.
