Here, youll find a very good amount of opponents. Paradise Poker is one of the most well known poker sites, and it has the game traffic to prove it. However, partly due to their software being very open about table statistics, the players tend to play much tighter. While you’ll have absolutely no trouble finding a table to play at, it may be difficult to find one with players who are easy to beat. The other side to this is that, with their great software, you should be able to weed out the tighter tables with ease but everyone else has this option as well.
Paradise Poker has, one the best game selection of all the big online poker sites. Not only does it have the standard five games (Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Low, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud Hi/Low), but it also offers 5 Card Stud, 5 Card Draw, and even a fun little game called Crazy Pineapple. They also offer blackjack. The catch? Only Holdem, Omaha Hi/Low and sometimes 7 Card Stud have many games going.
Their initial signup bonus isn’t the best. They offer a 100% bonus, up to $100, on initial deposit. The money is doled out with $10 per 100 hands played. To receive this bonus, enter bonus code FIRSTBONUS. Sometimes, they offer a re-deposit bonus of 20%, but don’t hold your breath on that. At this time, they do not have any player rewards programs or running jackpots.
Their tournaments are very satisfactory, and occur often enough to keep you happy. They have a slightly above-average selection of single-table tournaments, which is handy. They’re comparatively new to multi-table tournaments, but the ones they offer are still great fun to play in. As of this writing, they run a nightly $30 buy-in tournament with a guaranteed $35,000 prize pool, as well as a weekly $300 buy-in with $100,000 guaranteed.
Unfortunately, yet another poker site that doesn’t offer live 24/7 support. However, their email response team is very quick and reliable, and they know a good deal about most problems or questions you could have. Their cashout system is also very good. Ive never heard of there a problem depositing or withdrawing funds. They don’t offer as many options as some other sites, but their service can’t be beat.
