Winner.com is another very competent online poker room on the iPoker network.
Traffic is steady 24/7 and consistently ranks in the top five of the industry. Winner.com also brings several new features to the iPoker table though with really big promotions, a strong loyalty program and a great looking poker client.
Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud and Five-Card Stud are all available although the No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha games receive the lion’s share of attention.
Although one of Winner.com’s slogans is “Play the best, be the best,” this isn’t the Bellagio and some of the players are incredibly bad. That’s a good thing for experienced players hunting for soft tables.
Winner.com is worth checking out for anyone looking for easy games, good software and value-packed offers.
Bonus Code and Promotions
Exclusive $2,000 first-deposit bonus at 250% match for new players who sign up at Winner Poker through a Pokerlistings.com link.
Exclusive Winner.com bonus code for PokerListings players: PL10EN
Players need to earn 1000 frequent player points per $10 of bonus pending. It’s not a lump-sum payment and players can earn bonuses in increments of $10, which is better than what some of Winner.com’s competitors offer.
Winner.com rewards its players for the amount of time they play on the site with frequent player points. The more real-money hands you play, the more points you will generate. A rough estimate is 1 point per $.25-$.50 in rake.
The site also offers a very solid VIP program that awards seven elite tiers of status. Players start at Club and then move through Classic, Ace, Prime, Royal, and Imperial all the way up to the coveted Zenith Status.
Tournaments and Freerolls
Winner.com is a prime location for tournament players thanks to the iPoker network. Thousands of tournaments are available every day ranging from $1 all the way up to $5,000 for the most experienced players.
There are several good guaranteed tournaments on the site with an epic $1 million guaranteed event that runs every few months.
Satellites are available for all the big live majors including the Aussie Millions, WPT and WSOP. If you’re into big online tournaments there's also access to the European Championship of Online Poker.
The capper is iPoker’s renowned Jackpot SnGs, which have awarded over $100,000 on occasion.
Software and Graphics
Although it’s another skin of the iPoker platform, the Winner.com version is particularly appealing. The room offers a dark theme that looks more professional than some of the other iPoker rooms that have wild colors.
All the industry standard features for a poker room are available with stats functions, player notes, avatars, several table views, a four-color deck and multi-table support for up to eight tables. Beginners may also find the "view hand strength" feature useful as it informs a player what hand they have hit.
The site offers No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud and Five-Card Stud. Heads-Up, Turbo, Super Turbo and Rebuy variants are also available for most of the games.
English, Dutch, Spanish, Russian and Swedish are all supported languages, among others. For a free and direct Winner Poker download, click the download link above.
The majority of players on Winner.com do not seem to be winners at all. There are some shockingly bad players on the site and it’s a potentially lucrative site for skilled players to frequent.
If you’re looking for the worst players head to the micro-stakes No-Limit Hold’em games where players range from passive to loose but usually not tight-aggressive.
As with all iPoker sites the Omaha games are plentiful but because of the network’s European focus the high stakes PLO games can be very tough to beat.
