betVictor Poker review
The site’s software is available via a download aimed at Windows users, or a online platform-independent java version for other operating systems. There are no solutions for mobile platforms as yet. The downloadable software is very powerful and you can play up to eight tables at once.
BetVictor Poker uses the Entraction Poker Software which has been independently audited and certified. All customers can be assured of the security of their transactions as 128-bit encryption is used.
The site offers plenty of variety when it comes to the games themselves. You can play Texas Hold ’em, Omaha and Seven-Card Stud as well as many lesser known variants including Omaha 8, 2 to 7 Triple Draw, Soko, Americana, Telesina and Caribbean Stud. Most games come with No limit, Fixed Limit and Pot limit options with stakes from €0.02/€0.04 to €750/€1,500.
The rake amounts at the site are pretty standard, with a maximum rake of $1 on limit tables up to $3 on others. This works out at slightly less than 5%. Tournament fees are usually around 10% of the buy-in amount, although the site does operate a high number of freeroll tournaments, claiming to offer over €3million in tournament prizes every month.
If you’re already a BetVictor sportsbook customer you will still need to sign up for a BetVictor Poker account, with your usual information. All transactions on the site are carried out in €s.
As mentioned above, players accumulate “Action Points” by wagering money at the site in either cash games or tournaments. Once you have accrued enough Action Points you can exchange them for cash, tournament entries and items from the BetVictor poker shop. The more Action Points you gain, the better the exchange rate you are offered for them.
The site offers plenty of promotions, including a Sit & Go leader-board where a player can win €30,000 in prizes. There always seems to something extra going on at the site.

BetVictor Poker really offers the complete Poker solution, and the site does seem pretty faultless. The software is particularly impressive, and there’s enough variety and enticing offers to keep any poker aficionado more than happy. Beginners are well catered for, and you can even play Blackjack, Roulette and Slots on the site if the poker action slows a little.
