Background Info

Pacific Poker is part of the same group as Casino-on-Net (888.com) which is the worlds biggest online casino.

Overall Rating - 78%

The fact that Casino-on-Net (888.com) run the Poker Room means that a lot of new players are being directed here from the casino, and you can find many loose, easy to win games.

Software look & feel - 7

Easy to look at but quite basic, Player Notes are supported and Hand Histories are available but only in the form of a 'Video' replay of the hand. The hands play out fairly slowly but this has improved lately, they used to play out very slow.

Tournaments - 8

Single table tournaments start at $2 (with a $0.20 entry fee) and go up to $200 ($15). There are 10, 6 and 5 seat STT's available. Multi table tournaments range from $0.50 (No entry fee) to $100 ($10). The entry fee is 10%, except for at the highest buy-ins where it drops slightly. At peak times there are about 4500 tournament players.

Ring games - 7

The lowest stake Limit game is $0.05/$0.10, the highest is $30/$60. No-Limit games range from $0.10/$0.20 to $2/$4 and have a minimum and maximum buy-in of 20-40 big bets and 100 big bet respectively. At peak times there are about 2000 ring game players

Game Selection - 7

Holdem, Omaha, Omaha High/Low, 7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud High/Low are available but players can be pretty scare for all but the Holdem tables.

Rake - 9

The rake works out at 5% for all but the lowest stakes limit games. Tournaments charge 10% of the buy-in except for at the highest buy-ins where it drops slightly.

Support - 8

Email and Telephone support but no 'Live' support.

Banking - 9

Payment

VISA, MasterCard, Switch / Maestro and Solo Debit Cards, NETeller, Citadel, FirePay, Wire Transfer, bank transfer, cheque deposit, PaySafeCard, PrePaidATM among many other. Players from different countries are offered various appropriate deposit methods. With most methods the minimum deposit is $20.

Cashout speed and methods

Not the fastest as Cashouts are held for three days before processing begins. All cashouts will be paid back using the same method the money was deposited by, where ever possible. Where not possible the cashout can be paid back to a credit / debit card or payment service such as Neteller if that particular method has been used to deposit at least once. Payment by cheque is also possible.

Sign up Bonus - 6

20% up to $100 dollars maximum. The bonus is credited instantly but the requirement before you can cash it out is quite harsh. Twenty times the bonus must be wagered. So for the full $100 you would need to wager $2000.

Promotions - 7

Promotions at Pacific mainly take the form of guaranteed prize pool tournaments

Player Level - 10

Many, Many soft players. Great chance of winning here.
