Absolute Poker

Absolute Poker Well established and trusted site
US players accepted
Excellent deposit bonuses and ongoing promotions
Lots of fish, especially in the cash games

Absolute Poker was founded way back in 2003, so it’s one of the oldest and most respected online poker room. They are owned by Tokwiro Enterprises, the company which owns and operated UB (formorly Ultimate Bet) and as such they have the size and market dominance to attract large numbers of lose players, and put on some serious promotions, tournaments and incentives.

Absolute poker offer a massive 150% first deposit bonus (up to $500) which you can claim through our exclusive bonus link.

The software is high quality, and has all the features you would expect from a modern poker client such as player locators, hand histories, note taking and various table view options including mini-view and cascading, making it suitable for multi-tabling.

Games offered include Texas Hold’em in limit, pot limit and no limit formats, Seven card stud, Seven card Hi/Lo, Omaha Hi, Omaha Hi/Lo, heads up games and a good selection or tournaments.

Low to mid level cash games have plenty of fish, and you won’t have to wait to find a suitable table – literally just sit and go!  The site is considered pretty soft (definitely a lot easier to beat than the “big boys” like PokerStars and Full Tilt) so there are plenty of fish to feed on.  Omaha is also becoming quite populer on the site and there are good profit making opportunities to be had.

Deposit and withdrawal options are plentiful.  US players can use Visa and Mastercard, while overseas players get a full compliment of options including Visa, Mastercard, Moneybookers, Fast Bank Transfer, Click2Pay NETteller, bank transfers and debit cards to name just a few.  It’s also a breeze to transfer money between accounts making it simple and easy to give/loan bankroll funds with friends and family.

Customer support, as you would expect from such a well established and trusted site, is excellent.  The staff are helpful and knowledgeable, and easy to reach but only via live chat or email – there is no telephone support.

Absolute Poker is a site that is easy to recommend.  It’s one of the “old school” poker sites, and since it has been around for so long it has had time to find and iron out all the niggles and create a really good experience whether you’re a recreational or pro player.
