Finding Good Poker Rooms to Play
Almost as important as how you play poker is where you play poker - not all online poker rooms are created equal, and no particular poker rooms is best in all areas to be considered.
If you want to have a good time (and hopefully good fortune), you need to make sure you pick a poker room that meets your needs. We help by pre-screening poker rooms, all of the poker rooms listed on our site are reputable operators offering good, quality games. That said, you should still consider:
There are all sorts of levels of service being offered. Some Poker rooms have toll free telephone support, others offer live internet chat and some only offer email support. We have found that the method in which service is delivered is less important than the organization delivering the service. Read our reviews and pick the poker room that provides service the way you prefer.
All the poker rooms that we promote on this site allow free play in additional to real money games; so please try out the software BEFORE depositing money. Make sure you are comfortable with how the software works, betting minimums/maximums and that it has the features you expect. Different poker vendors often run different software, so different poker rooms offer different experiences.
Many poker rooms will give a bonus (often 20%) to first time depositors. Some will give a recurring bonus for using payment methods like NETeller and PrePaid ATM. You might as well go for the best bonus amongst the poker rooms you find enjoyable, assuming you like free cash.
A lot of poker rooms give out cool prizes to active real money players. Bonus prizes shouldn't be the determining factor in where you choose to play, but can be a nice added twist to make your gaming more enjoyable, assuming you like prizes. :)
