Betway Poker, established in 2005, is another Microgaming Poker Network poker room and a part of Carmen Media Group Ltd. Carmen Media is located in Gibraltar, holds a government licence and carries the eCOGRA seal for fair gaming. Betway also offers a Microgaming casino, a well known sportsbook and a skill/luck games section.

Betway's poker software is only available through download and the poker lobby is very typical of the Microgaming Poker Network. Easy to navigate with a whole bunch of features such as the buddy list, the "my account" page, a very good help section and a flash casino to name a few.

Experienced players will be aware that almost every Microgaming Poker Network poker room have a healthy amount of ring games going around the clock. As always, the NLHE section is the busiest with hundreds of active tables from $0.02/0.05 to $100/200. It's practically packed with tables up to $10/20 but the highest limits do run quite often if you are one of those players. Micro-mid stakes players, it doesn't matter if you prefer shorthanded or full ring tables, never have to wait for action, just go ahead and jump right in. The FL section is fairly well-populated, some 25-50 tables are always running, from $0.03/0.06 to $50/100. PL Omaha and Omaha Hi-Lo traffic is decent, a couple of table between $0.10/0.20 and $3/6 are always running. Sometimes you'll also find an occasional high limit game but those are quite rare. 5 card stud and draw games run from time to time, almost exclusively on the smaller stakes tables.

The selection of MTTs on the Microgaming Poker Network is always good and Betway is no exception, lots of freezeouts and rebuys in the $1 to $20 range. Many daily tournaments with guaranteed prize pools can also be found here, with buy-ins from a couple of bucks to around $20. There are plenty of more expensive MTTs as well, from the $50 regular to the $200 Saturday bash. Betway's Sit & Go section is crowded, there are so many tournaments to choose from it nearly blows your mind. If your preference is tables between $0.09 and $10, there will be at least 200 ongoing games at any given time. Even if you play higher limits, $20 to $100, there's no problem finding a game here. Freerolls are held several times a day with prize pools from $100 to $1000, sometimes more.

Promotions And Support

As I write, the current Betway welcome bonus is 500% up to $5,000, read carefully to learn more about it. If you intend to really have a crack at this one, deposit $1000 and get ready to earn 150,000 Bonus Points (BPs). Since we are planning on releasing the maximum amount, only play at NL tables with limits of $2/4 or above (it is doable at $1/2 but will take approximately 25% more raked hands). For every raked hand played at $2/4 you will recieve 4 BPs. Simple math tells us: play 37,500 hands of poker and Betway will give you $5,000 for your trouble. It will take a a couple of weeks or so depending on how many tables you can/will play at a time but you will eventually get there. This is a damn fine bonus in my opinion.


For deposits, there are a few options available; Neteller, VISA, MasterCard, VISA Electron (depending on bank) and regular bank wires/transfers. Cashouts to Neteller will take 1-2 days, to VISA/bank account around 2-4 days. The latter is considered fast, way above average for poker rooms today.


Another Microgaming Poker Network room, aren't there enough of those already? Well, if only all of them provided good support, great ring game & SnG selection and such a great welcome bonus as Betway, I'd be a happy man. This is an excellent place to play and I will keep coming back for sure.
