Bwin Poker were formed in 2011 via the merger of PartyGaming plc and Bwin Interactive Entertainment. This merger allowed Bwin to take over and rebrand the PartyGaming poker site, PartyPoker, which at the time was the world’s largest online poker brand. PartyPoker – like all poker rooms – was hit by the ban on US players in 2011, but Bwin’s site has since risen to become the third most populated poker site on the internet. The PartyPoker brand has recently been relaunched. Bwin itself operates out of Gibraltar.

It’s a shame the welcome bonus for Bwin poker has such a high wagering requirement (deposit £50 and you’ll need to wager £3,500 to see any returns from your bonus) as this is an excellently realeased site. The only other thing to be wary of is the many independent claims you can find on the internet of some difficulties in cashing out. If you’re a casual gambler and not a high-roller, this is something that shouldn’t concern you greatly.
