Diamond Bet in 2008 which makes them one of the newer online poker operators. The Poker Tour Portal takes a look behind the warm and welcoming image.
Diamond Bet offers a welcome bonus of 200% up to €777. There are four different main types of methods when depositing, all with many variants. The registering and depositing process was easy.
The tournament variety and structure is not as wide at Paradise as it is with its biggest competitors. The ratio of rebuy tournament is higher than normal, and we found few tournaments that were not No Limit Texas Hold’em tournaments when we dropped in. Satellites for live tournaments are also popular at Diamond Bet, but as they are often rebuy tournaments with few entrants they might get expensive, especially since the rebuy system sometimes allows you to rebuy twice before playing a single hand.
The Diamond Bet graphics gets somewhat distorted on a large monitor. The feature for statistics contains an average number of details, and the player note system is easy to handle although you cannot categorize players. The payout structure is somewhat steep, but many players will prefer this. The largest guaranteed tournaments start around 19 GMT. Synchronized breaks have yet to be introduced, but it is probably just a matter of time before Diamond Bet comes along with that as well.
You earn Frequent Player Points (FPPs) every time you play with real money – earning 1 FPP for every €0.25 you rake. Earlier you could use them to buy in to tournaments and exchange them for cash bonuses, but now you can also spend them in the Players Club shop.
Diamond Bet makes sure to inform their customers about new promotions and upcoming tournaments, either through newsletters or messages within the poker client. The rake is seldom less than 10%, and your bankroll is transferred from your poker account to your main account every time you log out, making it easier to access for games like Black Jack which can also be played when seated at a table. American players are not allowed..
