Sportsbook Poker Review

Sportsbook Poker Review

Sportsbook Poker was launched in 2006 and is rated as one of the top poker sites for US players.  Sportsbook has the highest credit card success rate for players and guaranteed 6-day withdrawal time in the US which makes funding your online account incredibly easy.

Sportsbook operates on the US-friendly Merge network (the 12th largest in the world) and Sportsbook has a full range of promotions for new players including freerolls, satellites, $2 million in guaranteed events each month and a custom VIP rewards program.  Sportsbook also has a joint wallet across their sportsbook and casino too which allows you to take part in the weekly sports/horse betting promotions.

Sportsbook Poker Bonus & Promotions

Spotsbook has an excellent 100% up to $650 deposit bonus for new players.  The deposit bonus is released in increments of $1, which is based on every 75 frequent player points earned.  Cash games are the easiest way to clear your bonus which you can accrue at a rate of 10 points for every $1 raked.  This is definitely one of the easiest clearing bonuses and it is great start to build your poker bankroll

Sportsbook has a range of other excellent promotions and rewards for players.  Sportsbook’s award winning poker VIP program includes 5 different levels, with each level offering something specific to players at that level.  VIP rewards range from monthly reload bonuses worth up to $1,000, as well as cash back for your points.  What I like most about Sportsbook is that the VIP rewards are much easier to earn than any other poker site.  Additional promotions can be found in their sportsbook and casino games which you can hop over to easily once you sign up.

Sportsbook Poker Games

Sportsbook has a wide variety of games to suit your taste.  Poker games range from the popular Texas Holdem and Omaha games, to Draw, Stud, Razz.  Recently PlayersOnly introduced HORSE and 2-7 Triple Draw into the mix, and these are starting to fill up pretty well.  Operating on one of the Merge network which is shared by several other rooms, Sportsbook is able to take advantage of a huge amount of traffic.  The average number of players in cash games reaches 10,000 and these are evenly spread across the $0.02/$0.04 up to $50/$100 ring tables. Of course, the majority of traffic can be spotted in the micro-stakes games which are easily beatable.

If you enjoy playing tournaments you will love it at Sportsbook.  As a Sportsbook player you can play in over $5 million in guaranteed prizes every month, and there are thousands of dollars available in weekly freerolls and satellites to major events such as the Aussie Millions and WSOP.  Tournament buy-ins start from $1 up to $500, and are supported in both Texas Holdem and Omaha format.  Currently PlayersOnly support re-buys, guarantees, freezeouts, deep stacks, bountie and even the new Kamikaze tournaments.  Sit and Go tournaments are available at a number of stakes, in both short-handed and full table format.

Sportsbook Poker Software and Features

Every poker site operating on the Merge network is able to boast extraordinary software and graphics.  Sportsbook software is highly functional, sleek and has a clean appearance.  The table graphics are utterly immense and in the lobby you can filter through all of the games and access table details such as flop percentages and average pot-size (all essential for good table selection).  As you sit down you can choose or even upload your own avatar to personalise your experience and make it more fun.

Sportsbook Poker Deposit Options

As stated earlier, Sportsbook has made it easy for US players to make deposits and withdrawals online.  Sportsbook’s online payment processor has the highest credit card acceptance rate in the industry.  US players should have no problem making a deposit or withdrawing their funds.  If you do face any difficulties than the 24/7 support, live chat and email will handle any problems quickly for you.
