The site has been growing in popularity however traffic is lower than some top sites. Recent checks see that peak ring game traffic is around 1500 and 5000 in tournament players. Although the traffic is lower, the competition is very soft and there is some real money to be made. A very good feel to the site.
Games are exceptionally loose largely due to the lack of high stakes players and sharks. View flop percentages regularly up in the 70's which goes a little way to indicating the level of play.
Support is excellent and response times are very fast. We would expect nothing less from such a well known brand.
We have had no complaints about this site. See what other people are saying about this site in our Betfair poker player reviews.
