If you are one of the growing number of customers that has accessed our Bet365 bonus code for Poker and signed up to enjoy some of the best online and mobile poker available in the UK today, then you’ll have already noticed that you don’t always need to be quids in at the poker table, to guarantee yourself a profit.

The reason for that is because in addition to what is happening at the poker table you are sat at, you can close the table and also win by playing on any of the extensive range of Casino Games that you can access from your Bet365 Poker account. 

How does it all work and is it possible to play Poker and be spinning the slots at the same time? Let’s take a closer look at Bet365 Poker’s Casino gaming options.

Playing at home? Take a look at these games, which are our favorites to play at home.

What is Bet365 Poker’s Casino?

The first thing we need to do is actually distinguish what Bet365 Poker’s Casino games are. What these games are, are games that are available at other Bet365 sites (Bet365 Casino ostensibly) only unlike when you play them at that site, you will play these games on Bet365 Poker without having to go on the Casino or Vegas sites. 

Previously, bet365 offered different balances for its products, but now the site has joined all those balances together into a single balance, which means your bet365 Poker funds can be used at the casino, sportsbook, bingo or any other bet365 site.

So now, there is no need to switch accounts, you can use your single balance across all bet365 sites, which makes things a lot more uniform and easier to manage.

When bet365 made several upgrades to their sites a while back, the bet365 Poker casino received its own upgrades too. There is now a casino tab available on the poker site, which allows you to play a wide range of games from within bet365 Poker.

However, now you can no longer play at a poker table AND also play slot games at bet365 at the same time. You can play one, or the other.

To avoid confusion with Bet365 Casino games, Bet365 Poker used to label their casino game offerings “Mini Games” but they have done away with that now. However, I will refer to them as that to reflect that these games are available at bet365 Poker’s casino and not bet365 Casino. If that makes sense!

How can I play these games from my Bet365 Poker account?

There used to be two ways you could play any of the above games direct from your Bet365 Poker account,but now you can only play poker, or a slot game.

To play the casino games, you can simply load up the Bet365 Poker client software and instead of selecting poker, select any of the games listed above from under the Casino option.

This loads up the casino games that you can play direct from bet365 Poker, and from here simply choose from the available menus and then pick which game you want to play. This will then load up and you can play direct from there.

When you click on a game to play, it will load up in a new window within the main bet365 Poker console.

However, you can now no longer play poker AND slot games at the same time as if you try and log in twice, you will be logged out of one of the games to enable you to play the other.

Of course, there’s nothing stopping you loading up an account on a different tab of your browser from another casino and playing there on multiple screens if you so wish, but then that raises a whole other issue.

Would playing Mini Games at the same time as poker affect my game?

In truth, it is difficult to answer this question as it depends very much on your own poker ability and your ability to multi-task across different games and different formats of games.

If you are a poker player who is very used to multi-tabling (playing more than one table at once) then in truth, you should find playing slots along with playing at Bet365 Poker relatively easy to accomplish.

However, if you are someone who finds it difficult to play two games at once and prefers to focus solely on one game then you may find it more difficult. However, there is a way you can play slot games in particular without detracting too much from your poker.

Some of the slot games offer the ability to Auto Play spins which mean you can set up to play a stated number of spins which will then automatically play while you continue your game at the table. Although it is worth noting that when you hit a bigger win, or a free spins game or similar, the auto play feature may stop until you are ready to play that game.

It is worth remembering however that in some games of poker, there can be lengthy periods of time where the players do not actually do much at the table other than fold cards. In this case, a few spins on a slot or playing a few hands of Blackjack or video poker, is a good way to pass the time while players with better hands battle it out for the pot.

However, we agree with bet365 Poker in that it is better to focus on one game at a time and in the era of betting responsibly, that certainly makes perfect sense.
