Speed Poker

A whole new way to play poker has arrived!

Speed Poker is a whole new way to play poker, and we are proud to announce that we're introducing Speed Poker to Ladbrokes Poker!

When you join a Speed Poker game, instead of joining a fixed table you join a ‘pool.' You can fold whenever you want, even before it's your turn, and as soon as you do you will be moved to a new table and dealt new cards. You know what this means, right? More action and less of the waiting around to be dealt a new hand!

Speed Poker on Ladbrokes is fully integrated into the client, so you don't need to do anything to get started.


Speed Poker Tournaments

You now have all the advantages of Speed poker in a tournament format. As always when you fold your hand you will be taken to a new table.

The main difference is that when the tournament reaches the final table, play will switch to a standard tournament format where one hand is played at a time. 


What is Speed Poker?

  • Speed Poker is a fast-paced game in which you join a large pool of players.
  • Players in the pool are seated randomly before each hand, so you will face different players in every hand you play.
  • You can play at multiple tables at the same time


What is Quick Fold?

  • Quick Fold is a Speed Poker feature which folds your hand and moves you to a new table without waiting for the hand to complete.
  • You can Quick Fold from any position, even before the betting reaches you, unless you have the option to Check.
  • To Quick Fold in a game, simply click the Quick Fold button.

How do blinds and seating work in Speed Poker?

  • Players are seated randomly before each hand.
  • Blinds are assigned to players who have played the longest without posting them.

Do I have the same time to act in a Speed Poker game as in a standard Cash Game?

  • Yes. Speed Poker tables have the same response time as our other Cash Games.
  • Time Bank will be available and you will have a specific number of seconds per table. You will also have the opportunity to increase your Time Bank after a set number of hands at each table, up to a maximum limit.

How do I play at more than one table in a Speed Poker game?

  • You can play multiple tables by joining the same pool multiple times. Our system will automatically prevent your entries from being seated at the same table.
  • Simply click the Join Tables button or click the +1 button on the table.

Does Speed Poker have specific rules to guide game play?

  • Blinds are assigned to players who have played the longest without posting them.
  • Existing poker rules apply.

Why can't I watch a Speed Poker game?

  • There is no fixed table to observe. Every time players in a game finish a hand they are moved to new tables.
  • Every participating player has a unique view of their own game play.
  • The best way to see what Speed Poker looks like is to join a game and experience it first-hand!

Can I earn Loyalty Points from playing a Speed Poker game?

  • Yes. You will earn Loyalty Points in the same way as standard Cash Games.
