Poker Nordica

Poker Nordica offers a great poker experience, with fast software that is easy to understand, good promotions, decent ring-game and tournament traffic and great mini-view functions for players interested in playing multiple tables. Poker Nordica resides on the Merge Gaming network, one of few networks that allow U.S. players, which is helping them grow very quickly - even outside Europe.

The games at Poker Nordica are on the looser side, with many inexperienced players - players wanting to find easily beatable games will be well served to check out the low- and micro-limit Texas Hold'em tables offered. The game diversity at Poker Nordica is also very good, with some of the more unusual variations of poker offered. The traffic volume, however, is still very low at some of the more exotic games.

The games offered at Poker Nordica are Texas Hold'em, Seven-Card Stud Hi and Hi-Lo, Omaha Hi and Hi-Lo, Razz, Five-Card Stud, Five-Card Draw, Triple Draw and Badugi. Currently, Texas Hold'em and Omaha are the dominant games offered in tournament format, with only a few tournaments running in Badugi and Draw Poker. All games are available as heads-up, full and shorthanded tables.

Poker Nordica offers plenty of multi-table tournaments and sit-and-gos, with most tournaments low to medium buy-ins. There are also plenty of freerolls running at any hour of the day.

The traffic volume overall is in the lower segment of the industry, even though we can expect to see both Poker Nordica and the Merge Gaming network rise in the rankings in the near future. Real money player statistics as of October 2016 show 500 ring-game players at peak hours, and 2000 tournament players at peak hours.

Overall, Poker Nordica offers good software, an attractive player base, good promotions and great multi-table possibilities. The Poker Nordica software is also updated frequently to ensure safety and stability, with little downtime as a result.

Tournament Traffic

Real-money player statistics at Poker Nordica show 2000 real-money tournament players at peak hours, as of October 2016.


Poker Nordica offers a wide variety of tournaments, mostly with low and medium buy-ins - the largest regular buy-in is $109. Poker Nordica offers relatively few larger tournaments, probably because they are still building their player base. There is, however, a $20,000 guaranteed tournament every Sunday that has become very popular among the players, and it often proves to be very good value.

Software and Graphics

Software Summary

Poker Nordica is a member of the relatively new Merge Gaming network, sharing a player base and technology with the other members of the network. Even though the network is relatively young, and volume is in the lower spectrum of the business, players are signing up from all over the world. Poker Nordica and the Merge Gaming network offer good software, great game diversity, nice multi-table support and good promotions - things that will keep the volume growing in the future.

The games at Poker Nordica are relatively loose and fast, providing a profitable environment for skilled players. The statistics functions are good, even though the lack of an export function for the hand history is somewhat disappointing. Poker Nordica offers great support for multi-table play, with clean and crisp tables and graphics and a great mini-view function.


Poker Nordica offers good data and statistics functions that allow players to take notes on their opposition during play and supplies vital table statistics like viewed-flop percentage, average pot size and hands played per hour. The Poker Nordica software also offers a nice graphic interface showing hand histories. One drawback to the software is that export of hand histories is not supported - something that makes deeper hand analysis more difficult.


The Poker Nordica software supports play at up to eight ring-game tables simultaneously, either as stand alone windows or as part of the mini-view function. The tables are relatively small and very easy to understand. The graphics are crisp and clear, making for a good multi-table experience. No problems have been detected when playing multiple tables.


Poker Nordica runs on Merge Gaming software. The colors are nice and crisp, and the functions are effective and easy to use. The lobby is easy to navigate and all parts of the software are easy to use, even for beginners. The software offers good customization options, allowing players to turn on and off sound, graphics and message options. The lobby and tables run in a red and green theme that is easy on the eyes and very free from clutter.

Special Features

Besides the usual functions offered by most poker clients, the Poker Nordica software offers a very nice mini-view function. The function minimizes the chosen tables and allows for more active and visible tables on a smaller area.

Soft Competition

Poker Nordica offers some pretty profitable games for skilled poker players. Many of the players at Poker Nordica are relatively new to poker, and the games are fast and loose. The low- and micro-stakes No-Limit Texas Hold'em tables tend to offer the loosest games.
