The other poker room the betting company offers is compatible to computer browsers only which is why it is not that active except for the part with the daily freerolls from which every customer get the chance to fight for a final prize fund of up to 30 USD which is more than 10 000 NGN without even paying a damn for the participation in such a tournament.
Hence, in this room, poker tournaments with an entrance fee take place every hour, but almost no one participates in them and sometimes, literally no one gets here. There are also a lot of cash tables for various types of poker, but here there is almost no one here nearly all the time, either, which is why this prize fund is fixed and it is even in our interest to have less competitors to complete with for the big prizes.
The freerolls are of two types and take place every day – the first one starts at 13:00 (Nigerian time) and it has a prize fund of 10 USD while the main freeroll starts at 19:00 (our time) and here the punters share out a total prize of 30 USD.
Poker room for mobile devices
In one of the two poker rooms 1xBet offers you can play not only via a computer, but also via mobile devices, which is why we are going to start our review with this special poker room.
The alternatives to play in this poker room, called just Poker, are four. They are the following:
- Playing via compute browser
- Playing via application for Windows computers
- Playing via Android smartphones and tablets
- Playing via iOS telephones and tablets
The only thing that is missing here is the possibility to play via a mobile device browser, so your smartphone or tablet is supposed to on mandatory be either with Android, or with iOS operating system, so you can be able to play poker in this room on the go.
Due to most of the options for an access to this poker room, it is quite more active in comparison to the other one we are also going to present you soon. And the activity is a very important aspect for a poker room as its lack would mean that you don’t have anyone to play against.
The weak point in this poker room is the fact that it does not offer any other poker type, but only Texas Hold’em. One way or another, though, in Nigeria the rest of the poker types are not so popular or required by the punters. Beside the fact that it offers only Texas Hold’em this poker room in 1xBet also offers only cash games, which means that you cannot play tournaments, for instance. There has been a notice in this room since many years and it says that the release of Sit and Go games (short tournaments with three contestants only), but it is not clear whether such a release will be soon or will it happen at all.
At the expense of this, the poker room provides a really nice and convenient lobby where you can sort the tables according to the number of the players or the bet amount they require – micro, low, average or high.
1xBet is the only big gambling company on the Nigerian market that provides the punters a poker room where they play with real money so this betting page is by all means an excellent place for Texas Hold’em and other types of poker lovers here in Nigeria.
As a matter of fact, the curious thing is that 1xBet does not offer only a poker room. The betting house actually has two poker rooms you can choose from. Read this article till the end and find out what the other games and tournaments offered here are, as well as how to play them.
Important to notice: Please, have in in both of the poker rooms we are about to present you in the next lines the betting activity is possible only in USD. While in the sport betting, casino and most of the rest categories from this gambling website we can bet in NGN, when it comes to poker our money is converted in USD and you are going to be notified about it once you enter in any of these two poker rooms. The conversion, though, is automatic and we do not have to do anything about it or about our betting activity in USD.
