BetKings is a poker room from largest network in the world - Good Game Network. BetKings is based on the popular European bookmaker and recently joined GGPoker.
You can highlight the characteristic features of poker in Good Game:

  • Unlike many other popular poker networks, here you can find suitable tables at any time of the day;

Good Game Network is a relative newcomer to online poker. The poker network was founded in 2014. It was originally just a small network for Asian players. However, after a couple of years of successful work, GGPoker drew attention to the rest of the world. The consequence of this was the addition of more and more poker rooms and the rapid growth in the number of players. As of 2020, the network confidently ranks 1st among competitors and periodically threatens the positions of PokerStars.

The latest evidence of the seriousness of GGPoker's intentions was obtaining the rights to host most of the WSOP 2020 online and attracting one of the most popular professional poker players, Daniel Negreanu, under its banner.

BetKings traffic

BetKings (GGPoker) holds the overall second place among all poker rooms in terms of the number of players (behind PokerStars) and is the leader if we consider poker networks only. At peak times, 68,000 players can be watched at the tables. Most of them are found at the cash tables.

The most popular place is No Limit Holdem. The limits are from NL5 to NL40000. This is the picture you can see on a weekday evening at the Good Game tables:

A nice feature of the playing here is that you can sit at the tables with a stack of 20 BB and higher. Fans of short and medium stack strategy games will be pleased.

The number of players at the tables with Omaha is also pleasing to the eye:

The lowest blinds are $ 0.05 /$ 0.10. It is assumed that due to this you will be able to meet very weak opponents at NL10.

The fast poker game at BetKings is called "Rush & Cash". There are tables from NL2 to NL200. The most demanded limits are from NL2 to NL25. At peak times, up to 200 connections on each of them. Note the special structure of rakeback distribution, which gives you up to 50% rakeback.

Short Deck poker is straightforwardly labeled as "Short Deck" in the lobby. The game is played with antes; available limits - from NL2 to NL1000.

Spin & Gold is the local name for Spin & Go tournaments. List of available limits:

  • 0.25 $;
  • 1 $;
  • 2 $;
  • 3 $;
  • 5 $;
  • 10 $;
  • 20 $;
  • 50 $.

The maximum prize is $ 600,000. The smooth growth of buy-ins in Spin & Gold allows us to call GGPoker one of the best places to build a career in Spin & Go.

MTT players were not left without attention either. Recently, decent Sunday tournaments have appeared on BetKings. Chief among them is High Rollers Super MILLION$ with a $ 2,000,000 guarantee. Large tournament series are often held with additional prizes in numerous leaderboards. The last significant series were the May WSOP Circuit with an aggregate guarantee of $ 100,000,000 and, in fact, the WSOP itself. As part of the latter, 54 bracelet events were held. The crown jewel of the World Series was the $ 25,000,000 Main Event. This size of the prize pool is a record for online poker.

Rake

From each bank, GGPoker charges a commission of 5% of the bank's amount. The problem is that rake has to be paid in any hand where players have invested more than 2.5 BB in the pot. If the rake value of 5% is one of the best in online poker, then the cap is quite the opposite - it is too high. Distribution of numbers by limits:

No Limit Holdem

The rake size in other disciplines is slightly different:

  • In Omaha, the commission is 3% of the pot amount, but there is no cap rake;
  • Short Deck and Rush & Cash are set to 5%.

The rake is not same in different tournaments. For micro and low limits, the commission is 8-9% of the buy-in amount, but in large and expensive tournaments it drops to 3%.

BetKings client and poker trackers

"Use of poker trackers, HUD and other auxiliary programs is prohibited!" - This is the principled position of the GGPoker management. Rationale - creating same terms and conditions for all players. Instead of poker trackers, you can use an internal element of the BetKings client software, PokerCraft.

PokerCraft is intended to partially replace statistical software in terms of session analysis, hand history study, and also contains the ability to view your graphics and summary (including EV). For each of the disciplines, a separate tab has been created where you can sort out your hands. At the end of 2019, a function appeared in the poker client with loading hand histories for further import into the poker tracker. Still, work in professional tools like PokerTracker 4/Holdem Manager 3/Hand2Note looks more promising in terms of improving gaming skills.

The BetKings poker client itself is on a good level. It has a large number of options that make the poker game as comfortable as possible:

  • Selecting the currency that is displayed at the tables, or transferring stacks to the big blinds;
  • A large number of layouts, decks and card backs;
  • Profiles with the setting of automatic rebuy and landing at the table with the exact size of the stack;
  • Preset sizes of bets on preflop and postflop;
  • Disable animations, avatars and sound effects for more efficient multi-table play.

BetKings has mobile apps for iOS and Android.

BetKings bonuses and promotions

Bonuses and promotions from GGPoker are very diverse and will appeal to fans of even the most niche disciplines. The most significant of them:

1. $ 11 no deposit bonus for registration. To receive a bonus, you need to do just a couple of steps - 1) register at BetKings and 2) go through a simple verification procedure.

2. Honeymoon. In addition to the no deposit bonus, beginners can expect to receive a reward of $ 300. To get the bonus, you need to complete simple missions, for example, play 50 hands at the Rush & Cash tables.

3. Bubble Protection. A common cause of frustration for MTT players is being eliminated 1 step before the cash prizes. For such an unlucky poker player, they even invented a special term - bubble boy. However, some of the tournaments in Good Game with a special designation allow you to count on getting your buy-in even if you are knocked out one step before the prize zone.

4. Big Hand Jackpot. If you manage to collect a combination of four of a kind and higher at the cash tables, then you will get a part of the jackpot prize pool. It doesn't matter if you triumphed or failed - the money is still yours. An important condition for receiving a prize is that both hole cards must be used, and the pot size at the time of collecting the combination must exceed 15 BB.

5. One of the most exciting and compelling reasons to play BetKings is the rake races with fantastic top prizes. A nice feature - each limit has its own leaderboard, its winners are determined and a separate award is received. There are rake races for both NL Holdem and Omaha, Rush & Cash, and even Spin & Gold. In August 2020, $ 2,000,000 was played in such leaderboards.

Loyalty program and rakeback

Fish Buffet” is the name given to the loyalty program at GGPoker. It has a rather ramified structure: it includes 7 main statuses, within which there are their own levels. The level of your rakeback depends on the level. The minimum rakeback figure at the basic level is 10%, and the maximum is 100%. The average cashback value is about 50% (excluding additional rewards in rake races). The size of the rakeback for a specific status is determined randomly using the reel. Additional information about Fish Buffet:

Level

Expected cashback

Plankton

15%

Shrimp

20%

Goldfish

22%-28%

Crab

28%-32%

Octopus

32%-36%

Whale

40%-44%

Shark

45%-50%

The statuses, and therefore your rakeback, change dynamically. If you do not have time to collect the required number of points to move to the next level, then your status is lowered and you are on the previous level.

Deposits and Cashouts

The list of payment methods fully meets all modern requirements:

  • Skrill;
  • NETELLER;
  • ecoPayz;
  • Visa;
  • MasterCard;
  • BitCoin;
  • Paysafe.

The list of methods for cashouts is almost identical:

  • Skrill;
  • NETELLER;
  • ecoPayz;
  • Visa;
  • MasterCard;
  • BitCoin.

In most cases, no commission is charged when you making a deposit and the procedure itself take place instantly. Cashouts can take up to several business days. The transaction processing speed depends on the specific method. If this is not your first cashout, your request will be processed much faster.
