VIP Poker Review

Click here for $200 Sign-Up Bonus, 20% Match

Definitely one of the new kids on the block, only launched in November '04, VIP Poker nonetheless comes with a pedigree. The United Poker Network as well as VIP Management parent of megastar sportsbooks VIPsports.com and BetGameDay.com, have earned the trust of an impressive pool of gamblers, and their stamp promises, if nothing else, security, fairness, reliability, and integrity.

VIP Poker's software is the same as Planet Poker's, as it should be; they're sisters. One of the nicest features at VIPPoker is their wide range of customizable options; it's sort of like designing your own casino. VIP Poker also has a popular game of multi-player 5-Card Draw, which is harder to find online than you may think. Their bonuses and promotions are some of the best in the industry, as their 20% signup bonus maxed at $200 is one of the better ones in the poker market.

Overall VIP Poker is an average or slightly above average site with a few special perks for the right players.

Traffic
Medium
Couldn't get the current figures, but they have flow-through from VIPsports, BetGameDay, and the United Poker Network, so you won't likely have any trouble finding a seat when and where you want one


 
 


Competition
Wild - lots of gambling addicted sportsbetters unfamiliar with the patience and finesse required in multi-player poker. Take advantage of their ignorance and you'll surely siphon off more than your fair share of their hard-won sportsbetting $$$.
