Betsson is part of the large and popular Ongame poker network.
Part of the Ongame poker network, Betsson is a one of the larger online gambling companies, presently employing around 800 people. They’re listed on the Swedish Stock exchange.
They offer online poker services and customer support in a variety of languages. I guess being the huge company that they are, they can afford it.
The Ongame software Betsson is using, is a very clean looking, highly user-oriented piece of software. There are no bright colors to bother your eyes, and coupled with its reliability, it offers a complete gaming experience. The Betsson software undergoes regular audits by Gaming Associates to insure its fairness, and it features 128-bit encryption to protect its players from fraud.
Besides the regular downloadable poker client, Betsson also has a “play in the browser” option which will put you in the middle of the action instantly. They take a 5% rake with a max of $3/pot.
Player competition is an interesting mix at Betsson: they have a sportsbook operation, too so they obviously get some poker players from that direction. Sports bettors are generally not the best poker players, and this shows on Betsson: the higher limits/stakes tables ( where real, semi professional and professional poker players play) are extremely difficult to beat. Remember that they get a lot of players from Scandinavian countries, and Scandinavians are generally regarded as good poker players.
Lower limit tables ( where the common people gather) are more chaotic, and naturally easier to beat. The rate at which you generate rake at these tables though is a less than satisfactory one. That is of course, if you’re after unlocking your bonus(es).
When playing a real money table at Betsson, you’ll generate poker points. If there’s a $3 (max) rake taken from a pot you’ve played in, everyone who played in that hand will get 3 poker points. These points can be used either for unlocking bonuses or for gaining access to freerolls.
Promotions-wise Betsson has a few aces up its sleeve: those players who earn more than 200 PPs during the course of one week, will gain access completely free, to a weekly cashback freeroll with a prize-pool of $2000.
Another such promotion is their Monthly VIP freeroll, accessible to those who make over 1000 PPs during the course of a month. The prize-pool for this freeroll is $10.000, and entry is absolutely free.
