There is a redbet poker bonus designed for different levels of player, so check out the promotions tab and decide which level you want to opt for.
DOWNLOAD OUR POKER CLIENT
You can play online poker with redbet direct from your browser, but we recommend you download the poker client (microgaming), create your own unique alias, and begin the journey of fun achievements available to you.
Simply click the download button and you will be guided through the process of installing the client; you are just minutes away from real action, with real people at our online poker tables!
There are a multitude of different games available in the redbet online poker room, including Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha, Razz and Stud. If you are new to poker online, we recommend you start with Texas Hold ‘Em, because it is the easiest game to learn.
PLAY A CASH GAME OR SIT AND GO
You can play a cash game format, which means the chips you take to the table reflects an exact amount of cash, and some people like this style of poker game because you can sit down and leave the table whenever you want.
You could play a Sit and Go tournament, which is where the buy-in will get you a certain amount of chips and you will play against a fixed amount of opponents. This style of tournament starts as soon as the right amount of players have entered.
If you click the sit and go tab, you will see one of the options on the left is “Fish Party”; this is a fun format poker game specifically aimed at new players, with a slot machine theme. It is a jackpot game, so you can potentially win €5000+ from a €1 buy-in!
POKER TOURNAMENTS AT REDBET
Scheduled tournaments start at a pre-scheduled time, and this style of tournament offers the chance to get a huge return compared to your initial buy-in; be prepared for a time commitment here because the more players that enter, the longer the game will last.
When you log into the client, you will see all the game formats available via large tabs on the right-hand side; click on the tab showing the type of poker game you want to play, and a lobby will be displayed with all the different poker games running or starting soon. Simply click on the game you want and you are good to go!
OUR POKER LOBBY
If you find the lobby a little bit overwhelming at first, which can be the case for many new players, look at the bottom left hand corner of the lobby and you will see a “filter” menu.
Use this menu to select the type of poker games you are interested in playing, and the others will disappear from view, allowing you to quickly identify where you want to sit down in the online poker room.
Double clicking the tournament lobby will open a separate window, and you simply click “join” to take your seat in the tournament. If you change your mind you can unregister from the game before it starts. Once the clock starts on a tourney, you cannot unregister.
To take a seat at a cash game table, you just need to click the “play” button next to the poker game you want to play, at the stakes you choose.
You will see that some of the cash tables have a small flame icon next to them; this icon lets you know that this table is a “Blaze” poker game.
“Blaze” is guaranteed to be high speed online poker action, as you will be instantly moved to a new table as soon as you fold/complete the hand you have just played.
This means you get many more poker hands during the time you want to play, and eliminates the waiting while opponents play their hands.
While a tournament has a fixed buy-in, which you will see at the start, a cash game has a minimum and maximum table sit-down amount.
You can customize the client to automatically bring the maximum sit-down to each table for you by selecting the relevant section from the yellow square with “Did You Know” in the bottom half of the main lobby.
Other important and interesting information will be displayed here from time to time, so keep your eye on it!
Whatever type of poker game you like to play, you can play more than one table at once, meaning that if there are two tournaments that you like the look of happening at the same time, you don’t have to choose!
Poker is an intense mental challenge, so if you are new, we recommend sticking to one or two tables as a maximum until you get used to playing.
FREEROLL POKER TOURNAMENT
In each game format tab, you will see the option for “freeplay”. This is where you can practice with exactly the same software as the real money tables.
In the tournaments tab, you will see “freeroll”; these are free to enter tournaments where you can win real money! Some of these tournaments have entry requirements which you will see by looking to the right-hand side of the tournament lobby when the tournament is highlighted.
HIGH STAKES POKER TOURNAMENTS
If you want to play bigger buy-in tournaments, you can win your way into these higher cost events by playing qualifying rounds, known in the poker world as “satellites”.
These games are available under the tournaments tab, and you will find satellites to higher price online poker games as well as to real live poker events.
SATELLITES IN ONLINE POKER TOURNAMENTS
Satellites to live events usually include your hotel, the buy-in for the game, and some expenses to fly you to exciting poker destinations! Most satellite routes start as low as 1c on redbet, so it is worth checking out whether you would like to play in a live event and planning ahead to allow time to qualify.
YOUR ACCOUNT AT REDBET
At the top of the main lobby, you will see the “my account” tab, and this is the place to look to keep track of all your tickets, bonuses and go to deposit or withdraw from your account.
redbet has an online poker loyalty scheme, and as soon as you start playing for real money, you will be automatically enrolled and start earning points.
These loyalty points, known as “redbits” can be exchanged for cash or tournament tickets. When you see a tournament in the lobby with “LP” as a buy-in option, you know you can use your points to pay that tournament fee. You will need enough points to cover the whole buy-in, part payments cannot be made.
You can track your progress via the “my account” section, and see when you have enough points to redeem some for cash, which can then be taken to the cash poker games.
From time to time, redbet will offer some extra bonus money, loyalty points, or free tickets, so make sure that you have followed redbet poker on Facebook and Twitter and that you can receive our emails if you are subscribed!
We hope this has given you enough information to get you started with your online poker journey, but if you need more help with some specific poker terms or the rules of any of the games, you can click the menu button in the top left of the client and select “help”; this should answer all your burning questions.
If you still need any assistance, just use the main redbet landing page and contact support, there is always someone here. Good luck at the tables, we look forward to playing with you at redbet!
