Titan Poker Review

Click here for $500 Sign-up Bonus, 100% match

Brought to us by the fine folks who brought us Noble Poker way back when (a site so successful the moguls at Empire Poker decided to buy it out), Titan Poker gives you the quality of a large online poker room with the intimacy of a small one. If there’s one thing, besides poker, that the TitanPoker team knows well it’s what drives player to one site over another, and makes them keep coming back for more, namely: bonuses and promotions.

They’ve got a ton of them, and good ones at that. Even their standard bonuses (ie signup & referral bonuses) are more generous than the industry standard. There’s another thing players tend to appreciate that Titan’s got right – a wide variety of simple, reliable, secure, and fair multi-currency payment options (read what I mean by “fair” below in Deposits & Cashouts). If you want to play at a small casino that treats you like a…titan?…then point your browser this way. You won’t be disappointed.

Game Variation & Limits
Texas Hold 'Em, Omaha (hi & hi/lo)
Micro-limits as low as 2 cents/4 cents
Single and multi-table tournaments
Private tables available
Turbo tournaments
Heads-up (1-on-1) games available


 
 


Traffic
Low, but more because the site is new than from any fault in the poker room itself
200-350 at ring games (peak hours!)
400-700 at tournament tables (also at peak hours)


 
 


Competition
Too small to attract the attention of many sharks (though some sharks like it this way – less competition for them), so use caution
At lower stakes, even the greenest novices should do fairly well
Many passive (read: nonaggressive) players – easy to take chips from
High flop percentages, high hands/hour (read: lots of naïve flop-viewing followed by lots of folding)
Lots and lots of shorthanded games at which, if you know what you’re doing, your chances of winning are vastly improved
Most likely, you’ll see the same names at the tables over and over, especially at higher stakes – it gives you a chance to get to know your opponents better, but it also gives them a chance to get to know you
Even tournaments get low traffic, which gives the right players more chances to win


 
 


Bonuses
Very generous signup bonus – 100% up to $500
Also generous $75 Referral Bonus
Weekly Depositors’ freeroll – make a deposit in any given week, be invited to that week’s freeroll for a shot at $1000

Deposits & Cashouts
One nice feature here is that, although euros and pounds are converted into U.S. dollars for gameplay, they are only converted when you purchase chips (they remain in your account in your preferred currency until then and afterwards) and they are converted using that day’s exchange rate (unlike so many other "multicurrency" sites where $100 is 100 euros is 100 pounds – always advantages to someone and disadvantageous to another). To boot, they charge no conversion fees. For this alone, they get a "10".
Deposit/Withdrawal options are – credit card, Click 2 Pay, FirePay, NETeller,, InstaCash, OnDemandFunds, Moneybookers, Citadel, myCitadel, wire transfer, INSTADEBIT, ECO Card, bank draft, UseMyBank, CentralCoin, PaySafeCard
