03/12/2012 :  BETFRED POKER LOBBY UPGRADED
 
Multiple changes and new features
 
UK bookmaker and online gambling firm Betfred has upgraded the look of its poker lobby along with the addition of new features that include:
 
–     New interface
 
–     New games including progressive slot jackpots
 
–     A hands played counter, which shows how many lifetime hands a player has played as well as the amount of sessions they have played
 
–     VIP club points display, this shows how many award points players have, these are points which players can convert
 
–     A bonus banner which shows how much bonus a player has and how much they have to play until they receive their next release
 
In addition to these changes, Betfred has introduced a new points accumulation system applicable from March 1 that it says will be more streamlined and lead to a better understanding of player's benefits and rewards.
 
A new loyalty plan will kick-off on April 1 where the Betfred Award Point will be implemented alongside the loyalty plan.  Players will be credited bonuses as they play and a simpler system will be in place for player's to cash in points for a variety of different bonuses and awards.
 
Last but not least, the rake at the site's cash tables will be calculated according to "weighted contribution" as a part of its new and upgraded VIP system already instituted from March 5. The higher a player contributes to a raked pot, the more points they will receive. Additionally players on EUR and GBP tables will receive more points per rake.
