When Gamebookers was first launched, it chiefly offered sports betting to the European market while operating out of the online gambling hub of the Bahamas. After gaining a significant foothold in the market, the firm were taken over in 2006 by PartyGaming, the largest online gambling company in the world with shares traded on the prestigious London Stock Exchange.
Since being taken over by PartyGaming, Gamebookers have focused on growing their already considerable presence in the online gambling industry by adding online poker, an online casino, and financial market betting to their already massively popular online sportsbook. This expansion into new markets has only served to improve on Gamebookers’ already strong reputation for high quality online gaming.
Gamebookers also have a strong emphasis on fairness in their operations. Much like sister brand Bwin, Gamebookers retain an independent software-testing firm to run regular checks on their online gaming software in order to ensure it is both secure and fair. This same firm are also trusted to ensure that all financial transactions on the site are safe and secure for users.
Software & Graphics
The Gamebookers Poker software client is based on the massively popular software first developed by PartyPoker, which has been downloaded by users more than 30 million times. This Gamebookers Poker version of the software shows a massive graphical upgrade on other versions of the PartyPoker client and rewards users with a crisp, clean design and clearer graphics.
These improved graphics do not put any added stress on a player’s computer, though, and are still light enough to allow experienced users to play multi-table games without running a significant risk of crashing their machines.
However, despite a number of upgrades to the original software, one downside to the Gamebookers Poker client is it requires all users to register for a real money account whether they are planning on making a deposit or just trying the service out.
The tables are quick and easy to navigate, with players able to manually browse the games on offer or use the quick search function to be automatically seated for quick access to the action.
Poker Game Varieties
Gamebookers Poker offer a wide selection of games with an emphasis on popular varieties such as No Limit Texas Hold’em and Pot Limit OmahaOmaha Hi Lo. Along with these popular games, Gamebookers also offer Limit and Pot Limit Texas Hold’em, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud Hi Lo, and the innovative Double Hold’em brand of poker.
