TonyBet Poker review in 2020
TonyBet Poker was launched in 2013 as an independent poker room and it was licensed by Estonian Gambling Commission. The professional poker player Antanas Guoga who is better known in the poker community as Tony G, became an ideological inspirer of this project.
In 2016 the Swedish company Betsson has bought TonyBet Poker.
TonyBet Poker closed in 2020. The poker room is not functioning now.
The players chose TonyBet Poker primarily due to the possibility of playing almost all Chinese poker varieties. No other poker room in the world can give this opportunity. Also the rakeback is up to 80% and the profitable bonuses for the first deposit attract the users.
TonyBet Poker soft review
The main lobby pleases with its modern design and intuitively comprehensible functionality. Thanks to the simple tabs, the player can easily switch between the two game variants, whether it is the usual Holdem or Chinese poker.
In the client settings the user can change the view of the game cards, the table background and even mark with the color a certain tournaments type in the tournament lobby.
The game table is convenient for the game but the small font can be the disadvantage for some.
