VCpoker is run by Victor Chandler , established in 1946 it has grown to become one of the most dynamic bookmaking and gaming groups worldwide
VCpoker does not allow players from the US. (US players can play at Golden Palace Poker which is also on the Tribeca Network). But in Europe especially they have made a name for themselves due to their uncompromising customer service and no nonsense attitude to cashouts. An outstanding choice of poker room for those wishing to play at micro limits. Ring games start at $0.02/$0.04 and tournaments from $0.10 for Single Table, $0.01 ! for Multi Table. There is plenty of action at mid-level stakes as well and while there are high stake ring games being played the choice of these tables is not as large as at some other poker rooms. Players who play a lot of tournaments will be most pleased with this poker room.
Less 'Vegas' tack than many poker rooms which many players find pleasing to the eye. Easy to follow game flow. Some more positives are note taking, buddy Lists, hand statistics broken down into game type / table size, ignore lists and a 4 colour deck option. Some negatives are, no slider bar to set raise amounts which is a shame. no statistics on the percentage of players who view the flop in ring games.
Probably the best selection of poker tournaments you will find anywhere online.
Ring games range from $0.02/$0.04 to $50/$100. Limit, Pot-Limit and No-Limit are available.

Cashout speed and methods
For UK players especially, second to none. Cashouts can be made straight back to your debit card. Also cashouts are processed immediately without the 3 day waiting period some poker rooms seem to love. Expect about 2 -3 working days for a cashout to your Debit card and about the same to a Neteller account. Credit card users may have to be paid by check depending on your issuer.
25% with a maximum of $100. The bonus is only credited once the required number of Action points have been earned. You need to earn 125 points for each $1 of bonus. So for the maximum bonus you would have to earn 12500 points.
How are action points awarded?
Action Points continue to be earned after the signup bonus is received (see above) and can be used to enter the frequent Freeroll tournaments or swapped for items ranging from 2 packs of playing cards (36,500), a Ipod mini (1,300,000) to a Mini Cooper (60,000,000). $100 dollars each month to the 'Player of the month'. You can nominate yourself if you like.
About average. Plenty of fish (loose players) get channeled through Victor Chandler's other gaming sites but many probably don't stay that long.
