Roxy Poker Review

Roxy Poker is another online poker room operating on the PrimaPoker network of card rooms. The main benefit of this to the online poker player is that there is a relatively substantial base of players and thus it is usually very easy to get a game started in reasonable time. A decent selection of games is provided by Roxy Poker / PrimaPoker, and the software is reliable with some reasonable features such as the ‘Quick Start’ option, whereby the player enters the specifications of the game in which he/she would like to play and a shortlist of options is subsequently...

Virtual City Poker Review

Virtual City Poker is part of the PokerRewards group of online poker rooms, a network which includes Golden Tiger Poker, Captain Cooks Poker and PokerRewards Poker itself. Each of the four poker rooms operates on the PrimaPoker network, which has a shared playing pool of around 500,000 members.The PokerRewards rooms are interconnected in that they share a reward scheme: if, say, a player earns reward points at Virtual City Poker, he/she may cash them in at Captain Cooks Poker and vice-versa. Reward points are earned at the ratio of between 25-300 points per 100 raked hands, depending on the amount of the player’s average rake, and each 1000 points...

William Hill Poker Review

William Hill Poker is the cards arm of one of Britain’s largest bookmakers, and as such one would expect a lot of them. They do not disappoint, although the Cryptologic software is not to everyone’s taste with basic graphics and no-frills presentation.

If you are one of those with a dubious connection, we’d recommend that you steer clear of William Hill Poker and stay at PartyPoker, where...

Noble Poker Review

Overview: Noble Poker is a poker room based on the increasingly popular iPoker Network of card rooms, a network which plays host to the likes of Titan Poker, Fair Poker and CD Poker. Until the introduction of Titan in September 2005, Noble Poker was without a doubt the leader of the pack on the network, offering the biggest bonuses and boasting the highest profile of the group. Titan has shaken the tree a little, however, and Noble’s previously unassailable lead on the network has slimmed down a little. In light of this, Noble Poker has decided to ditch the “biggest bonus on the web” promo (which...

Ladbrokes Poker Review

One of the so called ‘Big Three’ of British bookmakers, Ladbrokes puts as much energy into its poker room as you would expect of such a major company. However, the most prescient thing to highlight at this early stage is the current standing of Ladbrokes Poker in our Advanced Bonus Comparison Chart, where its name can be found firmly ensconced in 1st position for ‘Speed,’ 1st position for ‘Mean’ (a calculation based on the ‘Speed’ and the size of the bonus), and 2nd position for ‘Value’ (the first two factors combined with the percentage amount of the bonus award). These are simply sensational figures and warrant an automatic...
