Software – graphics and functionality
Paradise Pokers’ software is undoubtedly one of the best in the industry. The games run smoothly and the graphics are classy and attractive. The statistics are good as well, for example notes on other players are supported. A downside is that your computer must support several plug-ins for the software to run perfectly. If it doesn’t the software can get a bit messy and that obviously influences the playing feeling in a negative way.
Ring game and tournament traffic
Paradise Poker is one of the five biggest poker rooms in the world. The number of real money ring game players during peak hours is well over 2,500. The number of real money tournament players during peak hours is a bit higher, 4,000-5,500. Many players participate in the sit-and-go tournaments as well as in the bigger ones.
Game variety and competition
The variation of games is great in this room. You can play all the standard games (with fixed-limits, pot-limit and no-limit) and in addition to this some more unusual variants like 5-Card-Draw, 5-Card-Stud and Crazy Pineapple. However, the competition is really tough at Paradise Poker. Top quality players gather here and the games are usually very tight.
Rakes and tournament fees
The rake taken out is a bit higher than the average in the industry. This is especially true when it comes to low-limit games. The structure is the same when it comes to tournament entry fees.
Loyalty bonus and promotions
No loyalty bonus is offered. When it comes to promotions, Paradise Poker offer hand number bonuses and tournaments with guaranteed prize money.
Support and financial security
The email support is great with quick responses. Live support and telephone support is not available. The financial security is really good.
