Title:Low rake for cash games23 out of 27 readers found this review helpful
 
Only 2.5% rake for CASH GAMES !

Almost all other sites have 5%, even if you add rakeback and bonuses that other sites give it will hardly become profitable to play at another site compared to Svenska Spel !

So this is probably one of the best place to play cash games.

Also, it's run by the swedish government so there should be no rig.

Software is the same as BOSS Media / International ... OK but not nearly as good as Full Tilt or Pokerstars ....

Title:Low rake on low limit cash games and micro tournaments15 out of 18 readers found this review helpful
 
BEST things ...

Cash game has only 2.5% rake, that is half of most other sites charge. Of course , you also have to take the rake limit into account, but it's still very hard to beat at low levels at least. ...

If you like to play micro tournaments with a buy in of 0 to 2 dollars this is a good site for you - with a buy in-of less than 5 dollars this site has only 10% rake for all those ... ( most other sites have 20% and the worst example Partypoker has 25% )

This site is run by the Swedish Government so I think the risk of the site being rigged or people working there cheating is lower than at other sites... my experience affirms that ... no strange bad beats

WORST things

No rakeback or bonuses like on many other sites ... The effect is that if you play for higher buy-ins than 2 dollars you can probably play at Betsson or some other site and get a better deal.

SUMMARY

All in all a very good deal for people who like to play tournaments at very low limits. But if you play higher tournaments maybe you should go some other unrigged site because of bonuses ...

I don't play much cash games so someone else than me can compare their 2.5% rake to other sites deals. At really low levels I think Pokerstars might be the only site among the top 6 networks that can compete with that ...

"There is not so fun to play poker at svenskaspel.se. When you play and chatt whith players you understand that there many player are childs and not have the age in for playing poker at all. The parents have payed for some play at the table. Many players play every hand and dont take care of outs and odds for there hands."

Well, I see that as a good thing. Bad players that know nothing about pot odds and play every hand? Sounds like heaven to me.

Title:Not impressed1 out of 7 readers found this review helpful
 
Horrible, and I mean truly horrible, user interface that doesn't scale well on large monitors and with a menu system that at best can be described as an unreadable, confusing mess.

On top of that, filling out daily/weekly/monthly deposit maximums and play session time limit is mandatory. Forget a simple sign up and play. Minimum buy-in for SNG was 40 SEK ($6 USD) so the Swedish government apparently has no problems ripping you off after you have completed the appropriate forms.

Uninstalled this junk 10 minutes after playing the first time, never again.
