Betway Poker is a part of the MPN network, formerly known as the Microgaming Poker Network. This network is still owned by Microgaming and the poker software comes from them. You can download and install a poker client or play directly in your web browser.
Examples of poker rooms that – just like Betway Poker – are included in MPN are 24hBet Poker, PokerLoco, BetVictor Poker, RedStarPoker, NordicBet Poker, Olybet Poker, and TrioBet Poker. One poker room at Paf, one poker room at Betsafe and one poker room at Betsson are also a part of this network.
At the time of writing, MPN is found in spot #10 on PokerScout’s list over the poker rooms and poker networks with the most traffic to their cash game tables. This might seem low, but you should keep in mind that four of the spots in the top-ten are held by poker rooms that aren’t open to UK players. For UK players, the only options with more traffic than MPN are PokerStars, 888 Poker, iPoker, Bodog, and PartyPoker.
Examples of available poker variants
- Texas Hold’em
- Omaha Hi-Lo
- 7 Card Stud
- 5 Card Stud
- 5 Card Draw
- 2-7 Triple Draw
The MPN version of fast poker is called Blaze Poker. If you have played any other type of fast poker in any other poker network, you will quickly see the similarities. As soon as you fold a hand, you are moved to a new table and given a new starting hand.
MPN is often running a fast poker campaign called Blazing Cannon. Win all or a part of the pot in 20 raked hands on a 6-max real-money Blaze Poker table to qualify. You will then be moved to a side game where your task is to shoot at cards using the cannon, and you can win up to €100.
- When it comes to poker tournament, Betway Poker focuses on micro-stakes, low-stakes and mid-stakes tournaments. This poker room is not ideal for those looking for more expensive tournaments.
- A majority of the scheduled tournaments at Betway Poker have a buy in within the $1 – $20 range. One example of a tournament that is considerably more pricey to buy into is the Saturday Bash, which features a $200 buy in.
- When it comes to sit ‘n go tournaments, it is not difficult to find ones where the buy in is less than $1. A majority of the sit ‘n go tournaments at Betway Poker has a buy in of $20 or less, but there are notable exceptions, such as the $100 sit ‘n go tournaments.
- Betway Poker has freerolls available several times a day, with most prize pots falling within the $10 – $1,000 range.
- MPN, the poker network to which Betway Poker belongs, hosts their own offline poker tournament series – the MPNPT. You can win travel packages to MPNPT evsents at Betway Poker, or buy-in directly to the offline events using money from your Betway Poker account. (Satellites are also held at venue of the MPNTP event the night before the MPNPT Main Event.)
The cheapest standard MPNPT satellites available at Betway Poker have a €0.25 buy-in.
Examples of destinations where MPNPT has been played in the past are Malta, London, Dublin, Tbilisi, Vienna, and Tallinn.
