Natural8 is one poker room that has pulled out all of the stops during the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only have they crushed it with their incredible promotions, but their features list is the best to be found anywhere online.

Let’s take a look through at why Natural8 is one of the freshest and most entertaining places to play online poker today.

Card Squeeze

The card squeeze option is a little piece of added realism. For those who play live poker Natural8 now allows you to squeeze your cards up slightly to see what you’ve got.

Of course there is an option to open them right away, but that just wouldn’t be fun, wouldn’t it.

All In Insurance

Insurance is one of those things in life that you always wish you’d paid for once you know you need it.

Now on Natural8 you can buy insurance just before an all-in confrontation. If you’re sick of being outdrawn and just want to make sure you collect almost all of what you’re due then it’s a great option.

AoF Bingo

All-In or Fold bingo is a great addition to the fast-paced all-in or fold game. Every time you are dealt a hand, you can strike it off on your 4x4 bingo card and win amazing prizes. All for free!

Rewards go up to $80,000 in Hold'em and $160,000 in Omaha, just for playing your favourite game.

Bubble Protection

There is nothing worse than grinding for hours in a tournament only to get knocked out just before the money.

Natural8 have come up with a novel solution to keeping their customers sane and created Bubble Protection. All you have to do is check the tournament is eligible and make sure you register before the start. No late entries or you forfeit your protection.

VIP Games

Everyone likes to feel like a king. Taking centre stage with everyone’s eyes on you as you execute your craft.

Now on Natural8 you can sit down at the VIP table and take part in the most spectated game.

It will cost you though. Buy-ins range from $1,000 all the way up to $16,000.

Final Table

Final tables in Natural8 tournaments are a little different to what you will find anywhere else. Here you get to choose your seat!

Every player gets 30 seconds to choose their seat with preference given to the smallest chips stack. If you have a nemesis then it gives you the option to stay far away, or at the very least not to sit on their direct right.

Fish Buffet

The Fish Buffet is currently the most generous loyalty scheme in online poker. Up to 100% cashback!

As you play and earn points you move up through the 24 levels, each with different time limits and points to earn. Average is 50% cashback once you reach the upper levels, but the dynamic system allows for 100% if you are running bad and need a leg up.

Hand Moments

Hand Moments is a social media optimised system that allows you to show the world your craziest hands.

Who doesn’t like to show off the occasional big pot that you’ve won.


As HUDs and databases are not allowed on Natural8 they have come up with an in-built system that allows you to track your progress and results.

All of your hands are saved in the system to allow you to analyse when it is convenient.

Smart Betting

In keeping with making your experience as fun as possible, the Smart Betting system is an aid to recreational players who are never sure what their bet sizes should be.

Switch on the system and you will be aided by an algorithm. If you decide that you don’t like what it tells you, don’t worry, you can always go with whatever you choose.

Smart HUD

Just as Pokercraft is a great database replacement, the Smart HUD is a modern take on a regular HUD.

It shows each player’s VPIP and how hot or cold they have been running.

There is also a Smart HUD box that shows how you’ve been measuring up against a particular player.

Table Features

There are tons of different table features on Natural8. The option to straddle is one that you don’t see in many poker rooms. Making the pot bigger preflop is a great way to make the game more action oriented.

Tournament Staking

The staking section is integrated into the platform. No time to play yourself, no problem, you can invest in another player of your choosing and just collect when they‘re done.

You can also sell some of your own action. If your bankroll has been suffering of late then simply put yourself on the market and accept you’ll have to give away a percentage to your backer. 

Either way, you get to play in some tournaments that you might not otherwise have been able to.

Tournament Dollars (T$)

Tournament dollars can only be won in special tournaments that run every 30 minutes. These events carry zero rake or deductions and you can spend the winnings on any tournament you wish.

You can also use T$ for staking or even split your tournament buy-ins with T$ and cash together.

Don’t underestimate how profitable zero rake tournaments are. This is a great opportunity to boost your bankroll.

This has to be the best list of poker room features that has ever been seen. Check them out here.
