BetOnline Poker Undergoes Massive Changes

BetOnline New SoftwareBetOnline Poker has upgraded its software, introduced new games and increased its range of promotions to improve the playing experience at the site.

If you have not logged into your [geolink href=””]BetOnline Poker[/geolink] account for a while, a big surprise awaits you. The site has undergone a massive overhaul and is practically unrecognizable from before. A better designed interface, a selection of customizable options and smoother graphics have transformed BetOnline Poker from a self-confessed “no frills” poker site to something a little bit special.

In addition to the new software, BetOnline Poker has added Stud, Americana and 32 Card Draw to its portfolio of cash game options, and there is a stack of new and exciting promotions – including a reload bonus of up to $2,500. The impact of the changes has already attracted hundreds of players to BetOnline Poker judging by the levels of traffic seen in the past few days.

What´s New in the Software Upgrade?

Despite the lobbies and tables having a familiar look to them, the feel of the site is completely different. The gameplay is smooth, the graphics are clean and those damned annoying blackjack tables have been removed. Other improvements include the ability to upload your own avatar and a time bank feature, plus the option now exists to play at anonymous tables.

An important change for existing players to note is that the poker cashier has now been integrated into the main cashier. This means that when you make a deposit into your BetOnline Poker account, the funds will appear in your general account balance and will have to be transferred to your poker wallet before you can play. The reverse procedure applies when you want to make a withdrawal.

New Games, New Stakes, New Sit & Go Leaderboard Competition

The three new cash games that have been introduced are Stud, Americana and 32 Card Draw. Most players will be familiar with Stud Poker, and the rules for Americana and 32 Card Draw are available through the BetOnline Poker client. If you attempt either of these two games, please note that a Flush beats a Full House at showdown.

New stake limits at all cash game levels up to $5.00/$10.00 have been introduced to allow players to better manage their bankrolls, and there are a stack of changes to the Sit & Go games being offered – plus important changes to the Sit & Go leaderboard competition which is now being played weekly rather than monthly.

New Promotions Feature TWO $10,000 Freerolls

The new promotions at BetOnline Poker are dominated by two $10,000 Freeroll tournaments, a $20,000 Cash Race Challenge and a backdoor qualifying route into the regular end-of-month $50,000 guaranteed event.

The two $10,000 freerolls will be played on Sunday 24th July and Sunday 31st July at 8:30pm (ET). Entry is only available to players who make the final table in the nightly $5k Winners Series tournaments or $3K Summer Series tournaments; or for players who finish in the top two places in one of the $1K Summer Guarantee tournaments being played half-hourly from 5:00pm to 9:30pm on Saturdays.

The $20,000 Cash Race Challenge is a straightforward “dash for the cash”. There are no colored chips to collect or levels to climb – the 200 players who rake the most between now and the 31st July will share in a $20,000 prize pool. Top place in the Cash Race Challenge is worth $2,500 and the Challenge has only been running for 48 hours, so it is not too late to opt into the promotion and win some summer spending cash.

The last of the feature promotions introduced by BetOnline Poker is a backdoor qualifying route into the site´s $50,000 guaranteed tournament on Sunday 31st July. Frequently undersubscribed, this tournament guarantees a first place of $16,000, and any player making a deposit into their BetOnline Poker account will receive a Step 4 satellite ticket into a 6-Max Sit & Go – the winner of which will win a seat in the $50,000 guaranteed tournament.

More Reasons to Deposit at BetOnline Poker

BetOnline is offering every player – new players and existing players – a poker bonus of up to $2,500 on deposits made by the end of the month. The new BetOnline Poker bonus is a little different from what has been previously offered at the site, as it is released in increments of $5.00 rather than in five stages, and players only have sixty days to clear as much of the bonus as possible – if not all.

Furthermore, the bonus amounts are not 100% or 200% matches, but subject to the amount of the deposit. For example:

  • Deposit between $50 and $99 using the BetOnline Poker bonus code “NEWBOL1” to qualify for a bonus of $50.
  • Deposit between $100 and $249 using the bonus code “NEWBOL2” in order to be eligible for a bonus of $100.
  • Players who deposit between $250 and $399 with the BetOnline bonus code “NEWBOL3” will receive a $250 bonus.
  • Using the bonus code “NEWBOL4” when depositing between $400 and $749 will entitle players to a $400 poker bonus.
  • Players will qualify for a bonus of $750 when depositing between $750 and $999 with the BetOnline Poker bonus code “NEWBOL5”.
  • Any deposit between $1,000 and $2,499 will make players using the bonus code “NEWBOL6” eligible to receive a $1,000 poker bonus.
  • Deposits of $2,500 or more with the bonus code “NEWBOL7” will qualify for the maximum BetOnline bonus of $2,500.

One thing that has not changed at BetOnline Poker is that you still have to email after making your deposit with the relevant bonus code as the subject of your email in order for the bonus to be applied to your account. In the body of your email you should include your username and account number but not your password. The bonus should be applied to your account within 24 hours.
