NUTS: Viking Bet Poker is a VC Poker skin which operates under the iPoker Network. Being a member of such a popular network brings a lot of traffic to Viking Bet especially their low-limit Texas Hold’em cash games and SNGs. Downloading and installing the software is a breeze and takes less than 60 seconds on most internet connections. Those new to Viking Bet can receive a 100% up to $600 initial deposit bonus which is released in $5 increments. The bonus takes 60 action points for every $1 in bonus. The Viking Bet VIP Program rewards players who pay a lot of rake or fees in cash games and tournaments. Players can earn cash back bonuses, bonus credit dollars, and entry into monthly freerolls. Viking Bet shares the tournament schedule with other iPoker skins which helps to bolster attendance and guarantees. Their jackpot SNGs have slightly higher rake than standard tournaments but can pay out thousands of dollars for those who are able to win four in a row!
BEATS: While Viking Bet offers Stud and Omaha games they do not run very often above the microstakes level. High-stakes tournament grinders will need to look elsewhere for daily events above $100. There is a casino attached to the poker room which can be a bit of a distraction for those who tend to stray away from the tables. At this time Viking Bet and all of the iPoker Network does not accept US-based poker players.
