Rated Play is Match Poker Online’s raw, core offering.

In just seconds, you can jump onto a table of up to 8 players and play a hand of Rated Play. Afterwards, as with all things Match Poker, you will be awarded Rating Points [click here to learn about rating Points].

This is the fastest way for our unique Ranking Algorithm to figure out where your true rank lies within our Ranking System.

In Rated Play, you are ‘zooming’; you will be seated at a different table each hand. Unlike in our Tournament formats, you don’t have to watch how every hand plays out; once you’ve folded, you’re free to zoom off to another hand. You don’t even need to wait for your turn, the Quick Fold button will let you search for a new game whilst automatically checking throughout the previous hand or folding to any aggressive action.

Your chip stack will also reset after each hand, per the Match Poker gameplay style. [Learn How Match Poker works here!]

Craving a more traditional poker format? No worries, our Tournaments will feel like regular Sit ‘n’ Go tournaments!

Anyone who wishes to improve their poker skill can treat Rated Play as the fastest and most efficient way to learn.

After just a few hands, most poker players will find themselves in a position where they’re unsure what to do. By clicking ‘Review Now’ on the Match Over screen, they will be taken to The Lab. In The Lab, players will be able to re-watch their hands and analyse their actions – comparing them to everyone who has played those hands before. Here they can learn not just what the majority of players think was correct, but also what the very best players in Match Poker Online thought was correct. [Learn more about The Lab here!]
