It’s no secret the world of online poker sites is much, much different than it was 10 years ago.
It’s even much different than it was just two years ago, given the ongoing debate about online poker in the United States and a consolidation of the industry among a few big players.
The downside, of course, is there just aren’t as many options as there used to be for online poker players.
The wild west days of the early 2000s with massive sign-up bonuses and promos around every corner are also gone, but what’s left in its wake is a tight, focused and top-caliber group of poker sites that have used years of player feedback to fine-tune their poker offerings.
First-Rate Software, Room for Players of All Levels
The software, tools, game variety and tournament schedules are better than ever before – by miles – and despite an overall improvement in the level of play there’s still plenty of room for grinders of every skill level and every budget to find a fun and profitable home online.
While PokerStars and its new subsidiary Full Tilt Poker have definitely staked their claim as the industry powerhouse, there are still lots of safe, reputable and action-friendly poker sites with lots to offer players of all profiles.
From long-standing UK gaming leaders 888 and William Hill to the 3D, video-game inspired PKR to the steady and profitable skins on the iPoker network (including Titan Poker and Winner Poker), there’s a sweet spot for most poker players out there.
We recommend trying out a couple of sites to get a feel for the software and competition that suits you best before settling on a favorite. Pick from our list to the right or visit our page with reviews of poker rooms.
Highest Bonuses Guaranteed, Exclusive Freerolls
With a more non-US-driven market these days, tourney schedules and cash-game traffic are definitely skewed to a more European timetable (ie peak hours and traffic in the evening GMT) but it won’t take long to figure out where you can find the optimal games and limits for your tastes.
Sign up via our link in any of the reviews and you’ll be eligible for all of our exclusive sign-up bonuses (guaranteed the biggest in online poker) and freerolls (weekly and monthly, depending on the site).
We also regularly offer satellites to some of the biggest live events in the world, plus our own, low-stakes destination tournament, the PokerListings Battle of Malta.
Check out our expert-ranked toplist of the best online poker sites to the right.
