Sportsbook Poker Review is a longtime player in the online betting world, celebrating over 11 years in the industry and over one million members. The site's download is available to players all around the world, and Sportsbook Poker is jam-packed with player friendly offerings such as daily free rolls, great deposit bonuses, and good game selection. One great aspect of the site is that they accept almost every US credit card for deposits.

Slick and Secure Software

Sportsbook Poker is a member of the Merge Poker Network, which runs on custom software developed exclusively for Merge Poker Network members. The very crisp graphics and smooth game play is complimented by rock-solid behind the scenes technology.

The Cyberluck eGuard system is a state of the art application that protects your sensitive player account information from hacking and ensures a safe, cheat-free gaming environment. Only Merge Poker Network partners are able to offer this exclusive layer of protection. Navigation around the players lobby is very intuitive so it's easy to find a good game, make a deposit, or register for a tournament.

Stake Levels and Tournaments

If you're looking for solid cash games you'll find a fair amount of low to middle limit action, but the higher limit games are often scarce and if they're being played at all, it's mostly No Limit Hold'em.

Tournament offerings are pretty solid with monthly $100K free rolls and plenty of guaranteed cash tournaments. Sit and Go junkies will find a decent selection of games here but if you stray too far from the standard No Limit Hold'em click, you may find yourself waiting for a bit before a full table is seated.

Fish Quota

Overall, when you download Sportsbook Poker, you will notice that the players here are pretty weak/aggressive due to a significant amount of their traffic coming from the sports betting and casino side of their business. A big plus if your poker game is solid.

Poker Formats

Game selection at Sportsbook Poker is pretty standard:

  • No Limit Hold'Em
  • Omaha (high and high-low)
  • Seven Card Stud (high only)
  • Five Card Stud (high only)

Rewards Program

The rewards program is a mirror of the Gold Card/Gold Chip program offered at Cake Poker. Essentially you earn Gold Chips for each raked hand or tournament you enter and you can win Gold Cards at random. The latter is given out at the end of random hands you may play and is flashed on the screen after the pot is won. You accumulate these in your player account and can use them to enter tournaments or redeem for prizes.

Customer Support

Support is very good with options to email, instant chat, or even call them 24/7 to discuss any challenges you may run across when trying to deposit, play, or withdraw.


Sportsbook Poker doesn't boast the highest traffic or the biggest selection of games but if you're a US player looking to deposit easily, withdraw easily, and have a good time playing poker online, they're a great choice to try out.
