Royal Vegas Poker Review

Click here for $100 Sign-Up Bonus, 40% Match

Royal Vegas Poker, like Lucky Nugget Poker, is part of Microgaming's extensive Prima Poker Network with which it shares an enormous player database. Royal Vegas Poker promises high traffic at a wide variety of limits, 24/7 - and they deliver.

Royal Vegas Poker.com is particularly generous with the promotions, and offers innumerable tournaments at any given point in time, including Online Charity Poker, the College Poker Championship, and the Internet Series of Poker. As with its sister sites, Royal Vegas Poker does suffer a bit from mediocre software, though it's under constant improvement.

Their rate scheme is also a little high, but you could argue that you get what you pay for - in this case a constant influx of mostly dead money.
