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.


New to Ladbrokes - 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.
