UK Poker Sites

If you are from the UK then choosing a poker site to play at can be quite difficult because there are simply so many. The reason for this is that online poker is completely legal and regulated in the UK therefore sites from all around the world accept UK players and if you reside in the UK you probably already know that players winnings are not taxed from EU based poker sites which is a massive bonus. The following sites are the best for UK players to play at due to many reasons including UK player targeted promotions, their new player bonus offers, ease of competition, great software, and excellent tournaments.

William Hill Poker ( was established in 2002 and is considered to be the number one European poker site thanks to their excellent software, player volume, huge tournaments (including a weekly $200k Guaranteed and Monthly Million), VIP program, and how soft the competition is (lots of fish!).

PartyPoker ( is our second choice UK poker site and one which you may already be familiar with due to the amount of television advertisements they have.

Playing On UK Poker Sites

Depositing – All of our UK poker sites listed above provide a wide variety of poker deposit options. Of the sites listed above PartyPoker is the only site where you can’t play in Pound currency (£) because all of their tables use Dollars ($). One of the most popular deposit methods for UK poker players is Ukash. Ukash is a voucher with a 19-digit number which you purchase at a shop, then enter the numbers into the required field of the cashier to make your deposit.

Tax Free – Something which not all UK poker players are aware of is the fact that they are not taxed on their winnings if the poker site is based within the EU – which all of the above listed sites are. This is a very welcome benefit of playing on UK poker sites especially with how the economy is. We are just poker players though so ensure you check with the site first.

Satellites To Live Tournaments – Another benefit of playing on UK poker sites is the opportunity to qualify to play in live poker events. For example, Betfair Poker run their own series of live poker tournaments called Betfair Poker Live! which sees them hold live tournaments all around Europe including London. You can qualify for a package cheaply online in satellite events, and they also sponsor the APAT (Amateur Poker Association Tour) making it the best site to qualify for their events.
