The handsome, cool-blue poker room is available as a free download of 7.5 MB and runs on Windows machines. Recently overhauled in 2007, the Betfair Poker room software combines the best in security, navigation, support and features; a very solid, all around nice poker room and one of the busiest poker rooms in the World. Betfair Poker runs its own poker software and its own poker client and is not part of any other network like iPoker or PrimaPoker
Betfair Poker offers the standard options when it comes to statistical reporting, such as the ability to take notes on other players. The software offers its own built in hand reporting, but the accompanying “poker buddy” software is highly recommended. This software will run side by side with the poker room and provide much richer detail and more options for stats.
Players looking for a site that supports multi tabling have found it in Betfair Poker. After the upgrade to the software in 2007, Betfair Poker supports up to FIFTEEN poker tables in play at one time!
The graphics on the Betfair Poker room are crisp and clean and appealing to the eye. They are not as cutting edge as a few of the online poker rooms in the business, but they are in the top group. Navigation via the lobby and the tools at the table are all user friendly and intuitive.
Where Betfair Poker is lacking in super-graphics it more than compensates with the software’s special features. In game/ in site multi media displays are featured, as well as a number of features that pack small but play big, such as the ability for a player to view a folded hand.
