How big is Betfair?

iPoker sees peak traffic of over 4,000 players, the third largest network in the industry. Betfair boosted that by moving over to iPoker from the Ongame network.

Is it good value?

Up to 35% cashback is low for the iPoker network - through Rakeback.com players can earn 70% flat rakeback on Winner Poker.

However, players may find they're more profitable at the tables on Betfair, as it forms part of the network's softer tier 'iPoker 2'.

 

Betfair Poker Cashback

VIP information on this page is accurate as of the iPoker Network's January 1, 2015 updates

Betfair recently joined iPoker 2, the network's segregated tier of more established iPoker skins such as Ladbrokes and Paddy Power.

While rewards are lower on iPoker 2 - up to 35% cashback from the Betfair VIP Program - the tier has a larger pool of recreational players, many crossing over from the sportsbook.

iPoker 1 rooms such as Winner Poker offer 70% rakeback. Try both to see where you're most profitable.

Betfair Deposit Bonus

The 200% up to €1,500 initial deposit bonus releases at a rate of €10 per 1,250 Status Points earned, equivalent to 20% extra cashback with 45 days to clear. Clear cookies and sign up via the links on this page to be tagged for exclusive Rakeback.com promotions and rake races.

Betfair Cashback Payments

Your 'Betfair rakeback equivalent' varies depending on the level of the Betfair VIP Club that you reach by earning Status Points (SPs). There are three levels - Bronze, Silver & Gold. Players start at bronze.

Players earn 25 points per €1 rake paid in cash games or tournaments.

Players work towards Status Point requirements each month, which in turn earn players VIP Poker Points (VPPs) according to a VIP multiplier. Every 3,750 VPPs can be traded for €10.

VIP LevelSPs RequiredRake Req.MultiplierVPPs EarntVPP ValueRakeback

Silver 1,250 €50 x3 3,750 €10 20%
Gold 12,500 €500 x5.25 65,625 €175 35%

VPPs can be traded for cash in the client under 'My Account' anytime you have 3,750 to hand.

Further value can be earnt from €100k GTD Big Sundays, and €100k in depositors freerolls.
