Lucky Nugget Poker Review

Click here for $300 Sign-Up Bonus, 1500% Match

Lucky Nugget Poker, like Royal Vegas Poker, is part of Microgaming's Prima Poker Network with which it shares an extensive player database, ensuring a steady flow of fresh traffic to the tables. The site is managed by Lucky Nugget Online Casino. Known for big promotions and relatively loose games, Lucky Nugget Poker is a great sight for newcomers to online poker.

Downsides to Lucky Nugget Poker are that the game software is mediocre compared with other sites, the rakes are a little high, and there is no hi/lo action.
