App design & features
As soon as you launch Betfair poker, either from the downloaded app or via the mobile you know you are playing with quality. The app had a huge visual makeover back in July 2018 and it looks miles better than it did before. We love this new design and in our eyes, it is not only one of the best looking poker applications on the market, it is also one of the best performing ones too. You enter the lobby where you can choose your game type you want to play. Here you can choose from Six Plus Hold’em, Twister, Cash, Speed Cash or select a tournament. Each game allows you to pick your preferred table size and buy in. If you click on the browse list, you can then see a full list of available tables to choose from. You need to make sure you have a funded account before you can get to a table and play. Buy ins start from as low as €0.02 and you will always find a good range of tables, regardless of the time of day. Players on the app are part of the iPoker network so they are mostly a good level of player. You will find varying levels of players across the tables but don’t expect everyone to be a novice. The app is really simple to play on. It is a matter of funding your account, finding your table and then joining.
The Betfair poker app for Android & iOS has one of the most customisable designs we have come across. You can set the app up to work just how you want to work. Once you have registered and signed in, if you click on the menu button on the left, scroll to settings and in here you can really customise the app. It allows you to choose your own home screen, avatar, set a time bank and even choose what kind of cards you play with.

One of our favourite games is twister poker. Games are easy to play and you could win up to x 1000 your buy-in just for taking down a three man sit & go. To play, enter the Twister area of the Betfair Poker lobby via the app, then choose your stake. The prize pool will then be chosen at random before the tournament starts.
