The Best Online Poker-rooms

Online poker rooms grew very fast during the last year and their number continues to rise. Now poker-rooms swarm with players, sometimes it is hard to find a free place to play, some rooms have problems due to high server load. At almost any poker-room you can find lots of partners to play Texas Hold’em (the most popular online poker game), 5 and 7 Stud poker, Omaha Hi/Low. Other types of poker can be harder to find, but it’s still possible. Online poker rooms offer you stakes as low as $0,5 and as high as $200 and even higher for VIP players. Rake is usually 5% on low-stake tables and fixed at $3-$5 for high-stake tables. You can see that a large variety of games, tables, table limits, low rake and plenty of players at any time of a day makes the online poker rooms a really great place to play poker.

Talking about the best poker-room it’s probably better to tell you about the best poker network. Usually several poker-rooms that use the same software have absolutely the same rules and they share players (players from different poker rooms play together at the same table). The only things that differ are support and bonuses (can be cash processor too). These things are important, but probably not as important as the number of games, table and players, and the quality of the software. That is why I’ve rated poker networks and listed poker-rooms that are network members. As a result you have a big list of poker-rooms you can choose from. Please, check "Best Online Poker Ratings" site to find out more about the best poker-rooms.

  1. iGlobalMedia Poker Network - Empire Poker, Party Poker. It's probably the biggest poker network (by number of players). Dozens of thousands of poker players playing simultaneously is not a record for this network. One of the oldest and the most respected poker networks.

  2. Prima Poker Network - 32red Poker, 7 Sultans Poker, Aztec Riches Poker, Bet365 Poker, Big Dollar Poker, Captain Cook's Poker, Colosseum Poker, Crazy Vegas Poker, Golden Riviera Poker, Golden Tiger Poker, Grand Bay Poker, Intertops Poker, Ladbrokes PokerRoxy Palace Poker, Royal Vegas Poker, Spin Palace Poker, Trident Poker, Virtual City Poker, Wild Jack Poker.

  3. Cryptologic Poker Network - InterPoker, William Hill Poker. Many well-known Cryptologic casinos introduced their poker-rooms that quickly become very popular. You can use your casino account to play at this poker-rooms and they also offer nice monthly bonuses.

You shouldn't think that only poker networks are good places to play. Many single-standing poker-rooms offer excellent gambling opportunities (sometimes even better than networks). Below you can see a list of popular poker-rooms, most of them are independent poker-rooms.

  1. PokerStars is the world leader in online poker tournaments and since late 2003 also has good position in ring game traffic.

PokerStars send the biggest number of players to WSOP and 2004 WSOP winner qualified through this room.

  3. Pacific Poker is a part of the world biggest online casino - Casino-on-Net. It offers great welcome bonus, excellent service and the same time it's known for not very skilled players. So if you want to win some money you should try this poker-room ;-).

  4. Ultimate Bet online poker has been dealing cards on the Internet since 2000, but it become one of the world’s leading poker rooms during 2003, thanks to many innovative feature and nice graphics.
