Recommended online poker rooms

There are many poker sites on the internet.
Here you will find some of the better ones.

The rating system is nowadays simplified and is mainly built on overview gradings based on my personal views about the sites in general. The explanations to the gradings can to some extent be found in the comments. As I only have graded the sites I really find good the grades in general are quite high but I, of course, have certain favourites.

Pacific Poker

This is the best choice for the ones who are Texas Hold’em beginners. 70–80% (sometimes higher) of the players around the table in every betting round give you good odds to make a profit. If you study the lessons at Holdem-Explained.com you will understand why.

Behind Pacific Poker is Casino-On-Net who since 1996 have been running casino activities on the internet. There you have the explanation to why the loose game is dominating: Many of the players are casino players – not poker players.

Pacific Poker offers very soft competition!

Now there also are No limit- and Pot limit-tables!

Bonus

  • 25% chips extra immediately at the first deposit of money. This is the only site that offers this.
  • Bonus points for faithful players. The point can be exchanged for money.

PartyPoker – The biggest poker room online.

This site is perfect for the one who wants to play at many tables at the same time. Study the guide >>>

45,000 players online and lots of cash tables see to it that you can find a table to join 24 hours a day.

Here you also can play about the seats to the biggest tournaments in the world online, Partypokers Million Dollar Tournaments”. Crazy prize pots that this year will reach a level of $7.500.000!

The chance to juicy bad beat jack pots in case you would be unlucky and lose with four of a kind ( eights or higher). This jack pot grows gradually and normally has a size of between $100.000 and $200.000. When I am writing this it has reached a level of $160,000 and is growing steadily.

The least betting structure is $0.5/1, which might make that you get an experience a bit more expensive than necessary if you only want to test playing.

Pretty soft competition.

Bonus

  • 20% bonus when you deposit money. The bonus is released after 5 *(the bonus sum) raked hands.
    Explanation of rake: Study the poker dictionary.

Paradise Poker

This site is a distinct winner as far as quality is concerned.

Paradise Poker offers superior graphics and the best poker experience. Their support team always answers quickly (within 10 minutes) and is very serious when it comes to upholding a good customer relationship.

This site offers fixed limit, no limit and their selection of tournaments is very good too. This is also one of the few sites which offers five-player tables.

If the competition was a little bit softer this should be your first choice.

24h Poker

This is another site distinguishing itself somewhat more through the high flop percentage on the small tables.

Here you play about Euros instead of the somewhat unstable dollar which might loose its value even more.
The number of players is for the time being quite low at the somewhat higher tables but this will probably change for the better when UniBet enters the network.

Bonus

  • 25% extra when you make your first deposit. Payable after 30 days.
