Betdirect poker website re-launch – a new look and feel for a top name in poker

Betdirect poker - a leading name in poker - is undergoing a facelift over the coming weeks with a total redesign of the website. This change is in line with the recent rebranding throughout betdirect’s four e-gaming products and is designed to reflect the company’s philosophy of being; straight, open, and fair.

The design of the new website will make full use of betdirect poker’s resident professional, Angus Dunnington, and will make his expertise and invaluable hints and tips available to all visitors to the new site.

Charlie McCann stated, "We will make sure the poker novice is catered for with a step by step guide including background information on the history and rules, giving the reader a greater knowledge of the basics and a wider understanding of poker. No player will ever be in the dark again at"

The redeveloped site is also set to include more detailed information on poker tournaments and poker promotions, which is intended to allow players to enjoy the benefits of free chips and top promotions more often.

However, probably the most immediate and obvious change to the new betdirect site is the ease with which players will be able to navigate through the various pages online. The aim and expectation is that betdirect will become an invaluable resource to all players, no matter how experienced or inexperienced the player is, and not simply a place to download poker software. Betdirect are hoping that visitors will come to the new site in order to learn, play and most importantly enjoy online poker.
