Sky Poker is the online poker division of Sky Betting & Gaming. Originally part of the Sky brand, a majority stake of Sky Betting & Gaming – valued at £800 million – was sold to CVC Capital Partners in March of 2015.
Sky Poker is a real player in the poker market with a dedicated platform to enjoy online poker. It even had its own Sky television channel before the takeover, where poker analysts would share tricks and tips. To this day, a weekly show is still broadcast on Sky Sports.
Throw in the Sky Poker Academy, a dedicated YouTube channel, tournaments, weekly bonuses, numerous live events and Sky Poker Rewards, and it is little wonder that Sky Poker enjoys a large following.
With that being said, let’s get down to how to access Sky Poker on your tablet and get playing.
