Software and Graphics
The Betsson poker software is very good. A nicely updated new poker client by Microgaming is now live and you can access via a desktop download or the Betsson mobile app.
At Betsson Poker the primary focus is to find new ways to make poker more fun for casual players and the software reflects that with 3d avatars, easy-to-navigate lobby and cashier and great on-table buttons and controls.
Another nice new feature added to the software are the Betsson Poker Achievements you can unlock as you play. Develop your poker skills and earn badges while playing against your opponents or friends.
Betsson Blaze Poker
Blaze Poker is Microgaming's version of the ultra-popular fast-fold poker as popularized by Zoom Poker and Rush Poker. When you join the cordoned-off Blaze Poker tables you can fold your hand at any point and get immediately moved to a new table with a new hand.
You'll never need to wait for better hands or slow players; you simply fold your hand and jump into a new hand at a new table. Blaze Poker is perfect for mobile poker app users as well as you can get tons of hands in without having to toggle through multiple tables.
Anonymous Poker Tables
Another very nice feature of the Betsson Poker software by Microgaming are the completely anonymous tables where your real name and player stats are entirely hidden. Your identity is totally hidden and protected, which is ideal for poker beginners as they can not be tracked down by advanced players. Your profile and location is kept private and player notes and tags disappear at the end of each session.
The buddy search function is also disabled so no other players can find you via your username or search function.
Betsson Casino Software
As mentioned Betsson Casino gets its software from an A list of casino software providers. Up to 1,400 games across classic and video slots, table games, live dealer games, progressive jackpots, scratch cards and more. Software providers include:
- Play ‘N Go
- Red Tiger
- NYX Gaming
- Leander Games
Betsson Casino exclusive games like:
- Hidden Treasures of Cleopatra
- Howlin Wilds
- Random Winner
- The Untouchables
- Super Massive Respin
are especially popular as are progressive jackpots like Mega Moolah and Mega Moolah Isis.
As for software requirements, all the Betsson software is instant play which means you only need an updated Flash client. All of the Betsson software has also been fully vetted and is monitored by the Maltese Gaming Authority and UK Gaming Commission to ensure integrity and fair play.
Betsson Mobile App
Betsson offers an iPhone/iPad and Android app for poker, casino, live casino and sportsbook. You can download the Android app from places other than the Google Play store as it does not allow gambling apps. The iOS app can be downloaded at the App Store or via the Betsson site itself.
The mobile software is very slick and smooth and makes for great play for either casino or poker. Depositing and withdrawing through the app is also simple and straightforward.
The Betsson sportsbook app offers live sports updates and current odds for a huge array of sports with pre-match and in-game betting option plus the ability to save your favourite league, team or event. You'll also get secure access to full account details, available bonuses and yourbetting history.
As far as the poker goes, the Microgaming network is well know for its soft games at low stakes with lots of beginners and recreational poker players.
You might find some tougher opponents in the highest buy-in Sunday tournaments but overall the level of play is well below that of the biggest poker sites. Having access to fully anonymous tables is also a boon to amateur poker payers who can never be tracked or followed by tougher players looking for an easy score.
Playing Blaze Poker is also a nice way to level the playing field as being seated at a new table everytime you fold makes it impossible for other players to get a read on your play or follow any of your statistics/playing style.
Safety and Gambling
PokerListings recognizes that while most people gamble for entertainment, a small number of people can become obsessed with the potential monetary gains casinos games can offer. Even though studies suggest that only a very small percentage of the adult population encounters compulsive gambling problems, we take this matter very serious and ask you to seek help if you think you need it:
Gambling Therapy is a global service offering free practical advice and emotional support to anyone affected by problem gambling.
