Anyone know anything about Betonline?

I'm playing it at the moment and they've got a decent selection of freerolls almost every hour.

I've confirmed they are on the Action Poker Network by opening both Action Poker and BetOnline at the same time and comparing the tables, chip stacks, player SN's, cards, etc.....It's unusual that BetOnline would lie about what Network they are on and to me this raises a red flag. Also, they have no Rakeback, a weak Bonus, and close to nonexistent VIP Program that offers very little value. You should have other options even as a US player.

I plan to keep an eye on BetOnline to see what develops with them being on the Action Poker Network and lying about it on numerous other forums and in interviews.

I agree that players should avoid. There are much better options without the risk.

Re: How's BetOnline poker?

As it was said, they lie about what network they are on and no one can think of a good reason why (is there one?) I think Action approached them with a deal and they took it. This is a way for APN to have US players online and help get cash flowing again.

If you want to give your action to a shady operation like this, no one will stop you. But the best advice until they start giving out answers is to stay far away. Too bad they are risking the book's reputation over all the poker stuff.

I've seen the whole clearing bonus threads but I'm playing poker on it and didn't take a bonus...besides that I've read a pretty good amount of good reviews about them but I can't find any Reviews that are very recent

BetOnline says they are on a proprietary Network(Hero Poker Network) in multiple interviews and on other Forums. It's been proven that they are not on their own Network but are in fact on the Action Poker Network. Action Poker Network hasn't paid players or affiliates in the last few months.

Supposedly BetOnline uses their own Cashier, but they have already mislead players by claiming to be on a Network they aren't.

The software they use freezes constantly and is missing some key features.

They also have no real Bonus and no Rakeback, just sayin'.

Software is unbearable. Regular disconnects, definitely not on my end. There is some weird glitch where any time I sit or move tables in a tourney, it auto-sits me and won't let me sit until I restart the client and do it manually. I was hoping they'd fix these sorts of things shortly after opening the poker room, but nope. The interface is just super ****ty. Rarely do I refuse to play on a site solely because of the software, but it just tilts me to no end.
