Absolute Poker Review

Click here for $500 Sign-Up Bonus, 50% Match with Neteller

Absolute Poker features celebrity bounty tournaments with $50 bonuses to whoever knocks out poker stars like Kathy Liebert and T.J. Cloutier. Speaking of stars, poker pro Mark Seif is now on staff hosting tournaments, offering advice, and giving bounty hunters an extra head to hunt. He's also featured in many of Absolute's numerous commercials, which have been saturating TV and the internet.

For low-limits, we found in our Absolute Poker Review that low limits are among the best, with plenty of fresh fish ready for filleting. For high-stakes, however, Absolute is not as much an absolute. Try our Absolute Poker Bonus Code in order to get extra bonuses and promotions.
