Sky Poker Review
Sky Poker is one of the most popular online poker rooms in the UK. As the online poker arm of British Sky Broadcasting, the site had developed a dedicated following since launching a decade ago.
Sky Poker is a smaller network but still has reasonable traffic considering it serves a limited number of markets. During peak hours you will find around 700 cash game players on the site with over 5,000 when you include online poker tournaments.
Competition on Sky Poker is very soft due to the size of the site and that many of the poker players either filter in from Sky Casino, Sky Bet or they are playing because they saw the site mentioned on Sky Television.
In terms of cash games, Texas Hold’em and Omaha poker are your only options. Games as usually available from micro stakes to the lower end of mid-stakes. Games as high at £10- £20 run but not that often.
Tournaments are the main draw for Sky Poker and that’s because their largest events, the Daily £5,500 and the Weekly £12,000 are televised live on Sky TV. A large number of events on the site have buy-in ranging from £10 to £20.
If you’re new to online poker or wanting to improve your game, Sky Poker gives you training tools via their Poker Academy. They provide a series of videos that go through the basics of both Texas Hold’em and Omaha Poker and later transition into intermediate topics for both games.
Sky Poker gives you plenty of options to fund your online poker account, including PayPal. They will also allow you to add up to three different payment methods to your account to allow for speedier deposits should you need to do so. A full list of deposit options is available in the Cashier section of the Sky Poker client.
Finally, you have several options for customer support. In addition to a searchable support database, you can reach support via telephone, email or via online chat.
