Via aggressive marketing techniques, and the large database of players that place bets on the Sportsbook portal or in the Betfair casino, the poker portal is still growing. With the influx from many players that usually participate in other games, the poker skills of these players are relatively low and can be beaten easily by players that play poker more regularly. Most of the poker players at Betfair originate from Europe, the UK and Australia.
