Paradise Poker Review

Click here for $50 Sign-Up Bonus, 25% Match

Paradise Poker is one of the highest rated, best regarded casinos online. Players consistently praise Paradise Poker for their speedy and stable software, their visually stunning, cutting edge user-interface, and their reliable business integrity.

Launched back in September of 1999, Paradise Poker is now the 4th largest poker room online. Recently purchased for $300 million by Sportingbet, a publicly-traded company on the London Stock Exchange, Paradise Poker is now part of the largest online betting company. They offer a wider variety of games than most of their competitors, and a nice selection of educational resources for poker newbies. What you can see from our Paradise Poker Review, you can see that the site lacks promotions and bonuses worthy of its status and prestige.

Competition
So, it can't all be great - the competition is stiff
Pros play here
Especially difficult at higher stakes and in tournaments
Among the lowest flop percentages around


 
 


Rake
Less desirable than the competition, especially at low limit ring games and high stakes tournaments
