Pacific Poker is powered by 888.com and operated by Cassava Enterprises (Gibraltar) Limited, a member of the Interactive Gaming Council since 1997. In other words, it's a very reliable and trustworthy site, and you may have seen it endorsed by a number of professional players on television. It is one of the few poker sites that allows you to play via a Java-powered browser as well as with the regular downloadable software. The latter option is the best for regular use, though the Quick Play Java alternative could be handy at times... though playing poker in your browser at work may not go down so well with your boss.
There are plenty of games here at Pacific Poker, so regardless of whether you prefer to play Omaha, Texas Hold'em, Seven Card Stud or Hi/Lo versions of Omaha and Stud, you'll be pleased with what's on offer. Cash games, sit and go tourneys and multi-table tournaments are all available, and if playing just one game at a time is too tame for your tastes you can play multi-hand poker. This allows you to play up to four ring games and four tournaments at the same time, which is a pretty impressive option even if you don't take advantage of it.
Choosing a game has been made easier thanks to the presentation of useful averages, including the average pot size, number of players who see the flop and how many hands are played per hour. This enables you to home in on tables that suit your style of play, and thereby increase your chances of winning. Multi-table tournament fans will also be pleased to hear that Pacific Poker offer daily $5k and $10k guaranteed tourneys.
The Pacific Poker play environment is graphically impressive and strikes a nice balance between realism (note the cigars and glasses on the side tables) and functionality. The playing cards aren't the best that we've seen, but they are perfectly clear and you get used to them after a couple of hands, so there's no harm done there.
There are some great promotions and other incentives to play here at Pacific Poker. New members can get a 25% bonus on their first deposit (up to a maximum of £50) as well as free entries into 7 tournaments. Once you're playing, generous Bad Beat and Royal Flush progressive jackpots have the potential to turn the worst or best hand of your life into something extra special.
A great loyalty scheme awards points to players according to the number of hands they play, and whilst some sites expect you to happily trade loyalty points in for a baseball hat or bumper sticker, Pacific Poker allow you to exchange them for cash, making it pretty much a "pay to play" scheme.
The Pacific Poker web site offers a Poker School, news, raffles and video tips from a real-life pro, and customer service is available 24/7. All in all, this is a poker room well worth exploring, and if you do so you will soon see why many players choose to make it their permanent online home.
