Betfair Poker was established in May 2004. Initially, the poker software was provided by gaming software provider CryptoLogic Inc. However, Betfair decided to increase its offering and capabilities by acquiring Pokerchamps.com in 2006 and host their own poker room. This year, Betfair further enhanced player enjoyment by joining the OnGame network. This partnership launched Betfair Poker 2.

Betfair Poker has gained an excellent reputation in the industry and has sponsored a variety of popular tournaments known worldwide including APAT and the WSOPE.

With the launch of Betfair Poker 2, there are some great bonuses now available for players to enjoy. Betfair still offers a 'Choose your own bonus' sign-up offer, but it is now available with even more choice. New players can choose their bonus as $50, $250, $500, $1,000 or $2,500, depending on the Player Points they'll earn as part of the new Betfair loyalty scheme. This is a great offer as it caters for the many levels of online poker player; inclusive from the first-timer to the poker professional.

The bonuses don't stop there as, once signed up with Betfair, players can enjoy bonuses such as the $60,000 Points Race, $2,500 Welcome Freeroll, or the $25,000 Cash Splash.
