Europe-Bet Poker Games
With so many poker rooms to choose from, what makes Europe Bet stand out? The quality of games! The poker room receives high marks due to the number of recreational and unskilled players that make the games much looser than average with a good shark to fish ratio. As a Georgian-based website, Europe Bet Poker offers their online poker games in the Georgian Lari currency, which uses the GEL symbol. A GEL is more or less equivalent to about $/€0.50.
As a top 20 online poker room, there is enough liquidity for dozens of games to run during peak times. Although this action is naturally dominated by the No Limit Hold’em and Pot Limit Omaha tables, games can really pop up the other games any time. In addition to Hold’em and Omaha, Europe-Bet also offers 7 Card Stud (Hi and Hi/Lo) as well as 32 Card Draw.
The table limits at No Limit Hold’em and other games start at 0.01/0.02 GEL and move up to 100/200, with the much of the action occurring at the low buy-in No Limit Hold’em tables. Bad Beat Jackpot tables are the most popular No Limit Hold’em tables with games available at many limits. These tables, which are clearly marked in the Europe-Bet lobby award a large progressive jackpot prize (which is often seen above 200,000 GEL) when a player loses with Quad Sevens or higher when the winning and losing player have used both hole cards in their final hand. When a jackpot is hit, the progressive prize is split with 40% going to the winner, 20% to the loser, 20% to the rest of the table and 20% for the next jackpot.
In addition to Bad Beat Jackpot tables, Europe Bet also offers an Anonymous table option, which allows players to join the tables without being identified. The benefit in these tables is that more highly skilled players have a more difficult time tracking down less skilled players to improve win rate. At Europe-Bet anonymous tables, there is less opportunity for this because you don’t never really know for sure who you are playing against.
At multi-table tournaments and Sit N Gos, the action is less plentiful than the poker room’s robust ring game action, but they do have some great tournaments and Sit N Gos that can be found. Despite offering a variety of buy-ins options, much of the activity occurs at buy-ins below 11 GEL. A highlight of the Europe-Bet tournament schedule is a 20+2 25,000 GEL tournament that offers rebuys and add-ons for the first 2 hours. Low buy-in satellites are offered as a path to enter this tournament.
If you are new player at Europe-Bet Poker, we recommend testing the tournament experience by joining some of the 100-200 GEL freeroll tournaments that run multiple times per day. Get in early because these tournaments do not have any entry requirements.
Offering betting on a variety of sports action, the Europe-Bet sportsbook claims to offer the “highest odds in the market.” They offer you the chance to place bets of some of the most popular sports in the world, with popular events including soccer, tennis, basketball, ice hockey, volleyball and handball.
If the regular betting action isn’t enough to satisfy you, check out the virtual sports section at Europe-Bet. Bet on simulated action much in the same way you would make a normal bet. Place your bet and even watch the action “live.” Virtual action is available through football (soccer, dog racing, horse racing, speedway and tennis. You can even bet on an ongoing virtual football league.
