Poker Room Review
Being one of the more popular online poker rooms, we at winatpoker.com decided that we had to experience this room for ourselves and see what all the praise was about. During an allotted period of play, our reviewer went through and played real money and play money on all the games that pokerroom.com had to offer. We tried to observe each aspect of the room and hopefully these details will stand out to you in the review. This review will go through the basic features of the room, both negative and positive, and hopefully give you an idea of if you would be interested in playing at this site. Enjoy the review, and if you have any further questions feel free to contact our staff.
The sign-up process: I found this task to be very quick and rather painless. You just go to poker room and go to the part of the site where it says sign up. During the process you are required to give an email (make sure it is valid because they send you a activation code that you need), password, username, and a promotional code if you have obtained one (optional, I didn’t use this). After completing these fields, they then tell you to check your email for your activation code which is sent almost instantly. Just put this code into the correct area of the web site and you have just signed up.
If you are interested in playing for real money, you will need to fill out more fields that request your name, address, bank account, ect. Yet, if you just want to play for fake money then you are free to continue on and download the actual poker client.
Client and Download process: I use DSL as my Internet connection and the download time was very quick for the poker client. The install was also relatively quick and easy, and within about 15 minutes of first going and signing up I was playing poker on the site.
Once you are in the client, there are 4 different games you can play; texas holdem, Omaha, 7 card stud, and a private table. You can play for real or play money in each game, and there are a variety of rooms that are open for each type of game, limit, and stakes. I found the client to be very quick in loading, and there were a lot of people playing but enough rooms that you never had to wait for a seat. Also, the program wasn’t cluttered with unnecessary options or tools, and every aspect of the game was easy to see.
