Expekt Poker

Introduction

Expekt is a major gambling site that's been online since the late 1990s. Originally, it was focused solely on sports betting, but today it offers casino games, poker, bingo, and more in addition to its sports betting department.

The poker room at Expekt was opened in 2003, and it suffered a major blow two years later when problems with a software change closed down the room for two weeks. Today, the poker room is a part of the highly regarded iPoker Network and has regained its good reputation online.

When playing poker here, you can also elect to play side games if you so fancy. There is currently a total of nine side games available for poker players at Expekt: European roulette, Blackjack, Jacks or Better, Casino Hold'em, Caribbean Poker, Lotto Madness, Silent Samurai, Wild Spirit, and Desert Treasure.

Expekt is based in Malta and has a Maltese gambling license. Through the iPoker Network, the poker room is licensed by Kahnawake Gaming Commission in Quebec, Canada.

Expekt was founded by Swedes, but since 2009 the company is owned by the French gambling company Mangas Gaming (who also owns BetClic, Bet-at-home and a substantial part of Everest Poker).
