The OnGame Poker Network
Jan ’13 update: All Change over at OnGame with Bwin going to join Party Poker and now Betfair offering iPoker tables in addition to OnGame ones and announcing they will have gone to iPoker completely in 6 months time. This will put a large dent in the numbers on this premier network, and it will be interesting to see what their next move will be.
The OnGame Poker Network are what I consider the ‘Sweet Spot’ for online poker sites. They are made up of many sports betting and some casino brands who supply ‘fish’ to the poker tables. At the same time as having soft games, the bonuses and rewards are the biggest you will find – and with big-brand security this network really does have everything you need.
With around 12,000 simultaneous players at peak times (*my estimate after recent defections), there is plenty of action in both the cash games and tournaments. Big names on this network include Betfair and Red Kings. With rumors of interest from companies looking for a technology platform for a future US open market there is a bright future for this network – it will be interesting to see their plans moving forward.
OnGame Poker Network Sites – Top Pick, Red Kings Poker
Red Kings (full review here) have been on my play-list for a good couple of years now… they are a combo-site offering betting, casino and of course poker. There are a couple of great reasons for playing at this site. First the cool software, which is compatible with Mac, PC and Mobile Devices – it is simply excellent.
Secondly they have an extra bonus on top of those offered by the other OnGame Network sites. This is a $300 extra the first time you are dealt the two red kings (so, get the king of hearts and king of diamonds together in a real money cash games)… It gets even better if you lose while holding them – the bonus is $500! Add to this the $11 token for the next ‘Fishmarket’ tournament ($7500 guaranteed + iPads / Sports-Shirts) and you will start to see how well looked after you will be at this premier OnGame poker site.
Red Kings are a cool smaller site with great software big rewards – I recommend you check them out for yourself!
Ongame Poker Network Sites – Cool Alternate, Betfair Poker
Betfair are better known for their popular betting platform which allows people to take bets from each other. What you might not know is that they are also very active in promoting their poker site – with some of the biggest and best promotions on the OnGame Network. With this site now offering iPoker tables in addition to OnGame ones you will have the best of both worlds – and can easily decide which network to stick with in 6 months time when Betfair become iPoker-only.
To start with Betfair players get to choose from 5 welcome bonuses ranging from $50 to a massive $2500 (hint: the smaller ones clear faster!). After this loyalty rewards, leaderboards and races and a long list of cool promotions which include both online and live events keep players well topped up.
After you start benefiting from these rewards, it will start to become clear why Betfair players are among the most loyal players anywhere!!
