Sky Poker New customer reward
Sky Poker has one of the most enticing customer rewards out there. You do not need to make a deposit or part with any cash to start off your playing experience. Sky Poker will give you £10 straight away absolutely free to get you up and running. We found this perfect for our needs. It meant we could freely roam and try out different types of games without the fear of wasting our own cash on games we did not warm to.
If that wasn’t enough, once you have realised the benefits of Sky Poker and are ready to play with your own money you will be rewarded further. If you make your first deposit within 30 days of opening your account you will get a 200% first deposit bonus on any amount up to the value of £500.

Sky Poker review
The Sky Poker theme follows the TV interface theme Sky TV users will be accustomed to. There is the familiar vibrant blue background and everything is clearly laid out, making navigation really easy. Sky poker is highly recommended for the ‘not so established poker player’ as there is an excellent community and blog section attached so that you can get hints and tips from fellow players as well as asking questions that have been bugging you and getting various viewpoints back. There is also a Sky Poker school that offers different videos with methods of improving your play. You also have a dedicated 24/7 TV channel which can be found from any Sky TV box on channel 861. Here you can watch how other real players play and get commentary and advice from a variety of Poker pundits.
There are always offers and promotions on for existing customers to keep you interested and you can register for Sky Poker rewards to provide even more value to your game. This gives you loyalty points each time you play which you can then trade in for free rolls or cash back. We also enjoyed the fact that you can review your previous hands to identify your luck streaks. The only thing that was letting Sky poker down was that there was only Hold’ Em, Omaha and Omaha Hi Lo to choose from. So if you are looking for variety or like to play a bit of 7 card stud Sky poker may not be for you. With that said if you are just looking for Hold’ Em and Omaha, then the Sky Poker platform is definitely worth a download. Great offers, Looks great, good social features and account modifications.
