In my experience 1xBet does not pay such a big attention at its poker category as it does in the sport betting or casino games, for instance. Due to this the poker game isn’t on such a high level as the rest of the services are in this betting operator. I would call the poker service in 1xBet secondary and it is definitely left behind not only by the rest of the services here, but also by the competition websites that represent the leaders in the online poker industry.
Although these mentioned negatives, I should say that the poker product has its own strong points, too. And by having in mind that the choice of different websites with available poker rooms in Zambia isn’t big at all, it is definitely worth it to meet all of the offers in Poker category at 1xBet.
The Poker category includes two rooms that do not complement one another anyhow which is one of the biggest pluses we can register as to 1xBet Poker service. In this article I am going to try to conclude what I have seen in each of the two poker rooms concerning both: negative and positive sides.
Poker Room #1 – Legion Poker
I start with the particularization that we can join this room only via computers. This is why if you want to play poker via Android or iOS device, you can miss the following lines and directly skip to the lines regarding the second poker room.
Due to the fact that there’s no access via mobile devices here in Legion Poker rook there’s no such a big activity in it and it is very rarely to see a 3-digit number of players here. And the activity is a key factor, because while in sport betting or casino games there’s no such a difference how many other customers are online with you, in poker the lack of activity means you don’t have enough competitors to play against.
In most cases when I enter this poker room there’s only one or two full tables and it’s almost always when these full tables are with the least limits – 1 cent is the amount of the small blind and 2 cents is the amount of the big one. I’m talking about Texas Hold’Em.
Yet, the room offers other higher limits, as well as other poker game alternatives (Omaha, Stud) or type of poker (Sit and Go, Spin and Go, plus – different tournaments), but there’s no such a big point from them when the tables remain empty, though.
Some high activity can be seen only twice per day and in the category with tournaments, because every day from 14:00 to 20:00 (Zambian time) freeroll tournaments are organized where the entrance fee is 0 ZMW while the profits here are real money or incomes for 10 and 30 USD. The early tournament offers 10 USD as a prize fund, while the late one is more generous by offering 30 USD for the participants. Frankly, the freeroll tournaments represent my only reason I have ever entered this particular poker room.
Poker Room #2
The second room that isn’t honoured with any special name is called just Poker and has specially tailored Android and iOS apps. But that’s not all as this poker room is also accessible via a Windows app for computers that provides an alternative to play via a desktop browser here.
Usually, in this room we have several times more players in comparison to the other room and this leads to more active tables available which provides us a choice of various amounts for both: small and big blinds, as well as various numbers of players on the tables. Yet, there’s no such a big variety in the different poker games, because here only Texas Hold’Em is available.
The last thing is actually the big weak point of the second poker room – or in short, its lack of diversification. Once this poker room will be added with tournaments and different poker versions, I will be able to easily determine it as a poker room on a very high world level. Till then this room remains only as a good one, but only for those players, who don’t want to play anything else different, but the cash games of the Texas Hold Em without no limits.
