Briefly – SportsBetting Poker is the 3rd largest brand in the Chico Poker Network after TigerGaming and BetOnline. The poker software is virtually identical with BetOnline’s, as both websites use the platform developed by Connective Games since 2016.
As you can tell by the name, SportsBetting is all about its sportsbook with a heavy focus on American sports. The operator is the biggest in terms of US traffic in the Chico network and we’re talking about recreational players who mainly use the website to bet on sports. Aside from poker, SportsBetting’s offering also includes casino, e-sports, financial bets, and horse racing.

For those who read the description
The biggest upside of operators focused on sports bets is the torrent of bettors who want to try their luck on poker without proper knowledge and experience. You will fund a bunch of them even on NL100 and NL200 and that’s not a rare occurrence.
The fast and reliable software developed by Connective Games is what makes SportsBetting poker and its sister site BetOnline the better options in the Chico Poker Network.
The operator also developed a Poker Odds Calculator, which is available for free on the website. It’s designed to work smoothly in addition to SportsBetting poker’s software and provides instant help and tips, especially for inexperienced poker players.
Unfortunately, SportsBetting Poker does not support HUDs, so you won’t be able to use them unless you have a hand converter.
SportsBetting has a mobile version, but it’s only for sports. For the time being, there is no poker app, so, unfortunately, you can’t play poker on the go.
NL Hold’em gets most of the traffic, in particular at NL10 – NL25 where you can see 20 to 30 tables running at peak hours. The traffic remains solid on NL50 too, but as you go higher it gets harder and harder to find enough running tables, especially if you like to multi-table.
Bad news for the HU masters as well, currently there are no heads-up cash games available.
PL Omaha and PL Omaha H/L get decent attention with at least 10 tables running at low stakes and a bit less at mid stakes. FL Omaha is available, but you won’t find any action on these tables.
SportsBetting Poker also has a fast-fold variant called Boost Poker, but it’s not attracting lots of interest.
The tournaments selection is very poor during the week, but it’s worth playing in the weekend guarantees. Aside from the flood of amateur players looking to have a go at the big money, there is also the occasional overlay.
- In MTT there are available tournaments with buyin up to $100 , mostly this are tournaments up to $5. On the weekend, majors are played with guarantees up to $50k.
- In Sit & Go, buyins are available up to $215, but basically the game goes up to 10th limit. Jackpot SNG WindFal is available with buyins of $3, $7, $15 and $30.
SOFTWARE AND TRACKER SUPPORT
Chico networks do not directly work with popular trackers (Holdem Manager2, Poker Tracker 4, Hand2Note).

DEPOSIT AND WITHDRAWAL METHODS
Most mainstream deposit options are present in SportsBetting Poker’s Cashier. You can fund your account with a debit/credit card such as Visa, Mastercard and e-wallets like Skrill, Neteller, and Entropay. The digital currencies are more than well represented as well, with BTC, Etherium, Dash, and Litecoin making the list. Most of those payment methods you can also use for withdrawals, except for Visa/Mastercard.
SportsBetting Poker offers very fast cashouts, payments are reviewed and sent out within 24 hours Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. ET to 1:00 p.m. ET (this does not include holidays). You may have to send documents for verification before you can request a withdrawal.
For withdrawal (cash-outs) are available:
- HUDs are not supported (without converter);
- There is no mobile app for sports;
- No heads-up cash tables;
- Low traffic on high stakes.
