Bet24 Poker has been around for a few years now, and they're standing the test of time by offering one of the best poker downloads available. As a member of the Ongame Poker Network, they're sporting the Ongame poker client with a few unique touches to make the Bet24 skin stand out from the crowd. Weighing in at 3.2MB it's a very light download, but don't let that deceive you as the Ongame client is an awesome product, both in terms of looks and functionality.
Unfortunately due to the murkiness surrounding online gambling laws in the United States, no sites on the Ongame network are able to welcome new members from the US, and Bet24 Poker adheres strictly to this policy. Aside from this, basically anybody else in the world should have no problem using Bet24, as they offer a download for both Mac and Windows, as well as instant play in-browser support for Mac, Windows and Linux. The downloadable client offers awesome international support, including localizations for English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Greek, Dutch, Norwegian, Polish, Hungarian, Portuguese, Romanian, Finnish, Swedish, Turkish, Russian, Danish, Croatian, Slovenian, Slovak and Czech.
The Bet24 skin of the Ongame software looks fantastic. The lobby is a stylish mix of grey and deep green, and is incredibly easy to use. A quick seat system is offered, whereby players must simply choose their game, stakes and desired number of seats and they'll be instantly placed on a table. If you want more control, then you can display all the tables running and filter them to a more specific set via a system of tabs. Highlighting a table will display a preview of who is currently sitting where, and which seats are free. The coolest thing about this software is that you can choose your seat directly from the lobby, rather than having to load up the table and then decide where you would like to sit.
The tables continue the strong and simple visual theme, and it's really hard to express what makes the tables so great. There aren't any particular features that set the software aside from other rooms, although all the features that you would want are supported, it's more that everything feels extremely polished, from the crisp graphics and animations to the way you can show or hide options such as automatically posting the blinds. It's an intuitive set-up, and everything works exactly as you could hope.
Bet24 Poker is in truly good hands with the Ongame network. Not only is the network one of the largest around, but the software download that the skins all share is truly great, and even rivals the biggest rooms online today. If you're frustrated with poorly designed or ugly software, then head over to Bet24 Poker for the relief of a truly well put-together poker room download.
