Pacific Poker Review

Click here for $100 Sign-Up Bonus, 25% Match

Pacific Poker has its eye on the stats because they know that you do too (or at least, you should). Besides having a handy real-time table-stats tracking option, they've also evolved the standard Hand History feature to include video replay (this industry's getting more and more like pro sports every day). These tools are invaluable to anyone who takes winning and losing seriously.

Pacific Poker also offers a "No Download" version of their games, which is especially appealing to Mac-users who can't get into most of the great (Windows-based) poker games online. They've got an inviting online poker school with a snappy, flash-animated toucan host giving advice and strategies to both beginners and advanced players alike.

There's also a friendly, and frequently updated, player forum for sharing ideas with the growing Pacific Poker community. With such eye-popping promotions as the $100,000 Weekly Whopper, their $25,000 Showdown tournament series, and a juicy ongoing comp cash (bonus points) system, at Pacific Poker, you really can't lose. Read further in our Pacific Poker Review for additional information on bonuses and promotions.
