The largest site on the Chico Poker Network - Detailed Review 2017
The Chico Poker Network was originally known as the Action Poker Network and it would be fair to say that the company has had issues in the past, players contending with poor software and delayed payouts. These issues are now resolved and the traffic on the network has improved dramatically in recent times – this due partly to improvements in the tournament scheduling and leaderboards introduced for both MTT’s and Sit n Go’s.
BetOnline Poker 2017 Review – Cash Games Spotlight
The cash games at BetOnline are divided into Micro/Low Stakes and Medium/High Stakes. Most of the tables are for 6 and 10 players, with heads up games available also – interestingly you’ll also find a handful of 4 player tables. The Micro/Low Stakes section sees tables with limits ranging from $0.01/$0.02 to $0.25/$0.50, the Medium/High Stakes section sees tables with limits from $0.50/$1.00 up to $5/$10 tables. You’ll find both no-limit and fixed limit games here, although obviously the no-limit games are busier (there is a pot-limit tab, but no tables were running at the time of the review). Aside from hold’em, you’ll also find Omaha tables, with the choice of both High and High/Low tables.
Check out some of these cash games – you can see from the flop percentage alone that they are incredibly fishy, some of the micro-stakes games almost playing like the play money games where EVERYONE sees the flop!
BetOnline Poker 2017 Review – Tournament Spotlight
There are a wide range of tournaments on offer at BetOnline with games for players of all stakes, although the focus is on the lower stakes tournament, with the majority having buy-ins of $25 or under – all of the tournaments are played at no limit hold’em. Many of these tournaments are Euro guaranteed tournaments, with start times to suit European players. You’ll find a combination of freeze-out tournaments, rebuys and add-ons and various sized tables at these tournaments – many of these having guaranteed payouts. There are many satellite events to some of the bigger events, a number of these using the ‘step’ system where you’ll move from round to round – all of the satellites are found in the sit n go section of the site. The biggest guaranteed event is the $25,000 guaranteed event with a buy-in of $55+$5 and the largest buy-in at time of writing was a $100+$10 freeze-out.
BetOnline have MTT leaderboards, where the top 100 players on the bronze, silver and gold (based on entry fees) face off in $500, $1,000 and $2,000 guaranteed tournaments.
BetOnline Poker 2017 – Sit N Go Tournaments Spotlight
As well as the satellite tournaments, you’ll find a mixture of 6, 10, 12 and 18 player sit n go’s. These range from a buy-in of just $0.05 (there is no house fee for these) up to $500+$25 tournaments. Like the MTT’s all of the tournaments are no limit hold’em and you’ll also find similar leaderboards – however the prizes on offer are much larger at these, with $50,000 up for grabs.

BetOnline / Chico Network – Playability and Poker Software
The poker software is solid without being spectacular. When playing you’ll be able to change the background between ‘stadium’, ‘beach’ and ‘city’ which is slightly reminiscent of when playing at Full Tilt over the years. The games don’t really enjoy a smooth feel to them – the animations are not particularly slick and the bet slider isn’t particularly easy, meaning I had great difficulty betting 3x the big blind without actually typing the amount in. Aside from that however, the games are very clear and not cluttered with promos or pop ups that you might find elsewhere.
BetOnline – Bonuses, Incentives and Promotions
The 200% sign up bonus up to $1,000 is available to all new players at the site, although be aware that the bonus will only added after you e-mail the site, and will NOT be awarded automatically, so don’t forget! As well as the leaderboard challenges, you’ll also find a 4 of a Kind challenge. On certain days this challenge will be active (you’ll know as it is announced in the poker software) and hit 4 of a Kind including your two hole cards and $40 is yours. Additionally you’ll find a number of free-rolls where a top 100 finish will earn you a step 1 ticket for the $25,000 guaranteed, meaning you can win the biggest prize on BetOnline for potentially nothing!
