Betsson Android Poker Review
Welcome to our Betsson Android poker review. Betsson is a nordic online gaming giant and they have gained huge brand recognition in recent years. They are a publicly traded company listed on the Nordic Exchange Mid Cap. Betsson poker are among the leaders in mobile poker and their Android client is pretty good, but probably not the best on the market. 888poker are much better for improving their product
When you get to their site, click ‘Poker by Ongame’ on the Poker tab and you’ll see a link to mobile poker on the left hand side.
Betsson Android Poker App
Betsson have developed a standalone app for Android based devices, meaning players can launch the poker software directly from their home screen as a separate program. This stands out from many of the other large poker sites who, to date only offer mobile poker through the device’s internet browser, which saves them having to code a separate piece of software for each operating system. The result is that Betsson’s software runs more smoothly and is much more user friendly than its rivals. The purpose built touch-screen controls are easy to work with and the layout ensures that expensive miclicks will be kept to a minimum.
As you can see from the screen shot below, the action is easy to follow and reading the bet amounts is straightforward and their are handy buttons on the right of the screen which allow you to bet convenient amounts like 1/2 pot, pot, or all-in. The software has lots of nice features like ‘one click re-seating’ if you’re interrupted by a phone call, and the option to review hands from your current session using the instant hand history option. As well as this, the game sounds are customisable.
Games can be played on a mobile data connection or over a WiFi connection, but as we always recommend, be careful when playing on a mobile data connection that you’re going to be in an area with good coverage for the duration of your poker session. A disconnection in the middle of a big hand could prove expensive.
Betsson Android Game Selection
Betsson have targeted the biggest part of the online poker market with their Android app and opted to offer Holdem cash games only for the time being. You can play fixed limit, pot limit or no limit Holdem, at stakes from $0.05/$0.10 up to $3/$6 and you can play at heads-up, 6-max or full ring tables. When playing poker on your Android, you’ll be in the same player pool as all of the regular Betsson traffic so there’s no shortage of games and, because of all the sports bettors and casino gamblers at Betsson, you’ll find that the games are among the softest on the internet. Stakes all of the way up to $0.50/$1 are very soft with plenty of fish at the full ring tables in particular. There are quite a few sharks at the heads-up tables at most stakes, and at 6-max tables at stakes above $1/$2.
Betsson Bonus and Promotions
Playing poker on Android qualifies you for all of the same bonuses and promotions as playing on your PC. When you sign-up through www.androidpokersites.com, you’ll get a $500 deposit bonus which clears relatively quickly, but you’ll want to add in some multiple table play on your PC if you want to clear the whole $500. Your Betsson account also qualifies you to take part in promotions for seats at the Grand Series of Poker live tournament events and great prizes like VIP trips to poker tournaments.
While Betsson is an OK choice, currently the best bet for playing poker on your Android device is 888poker. It is nice to have the security with Betsson being backed by a global gaming giant, as you can be sure of a fair game and great customer service in the background should you need it. They also offer fast withdrawals and transfer of money between your poker account and your sports betting/casino accounts. Betsson also has a sports betting app so you can switch from poker to sports betting in a flash.
