Traffic: Absolute Poker is a medium-sized poker room with decent player traffic. Obviously it can’t compete with the giants in the industry, but if you play Hold’em there are always games to choose from. Six-handed tables are very popular at Absolute Poker since many of today’s poker players prefer the fast-paced action that short handed poker provides.
Tournaments: Absolute Poker has good tournament traffic and there are normally around 10,000 active players during peak hours. The site offers a $100,000 guaranteed multitable tournament every Sunday where the winner is guaranteed a first prize of $25,000. There are also daily satellites and freerolls to every Sunday event. Of course Absolute Poker offers other forms of poker tournaments including regular multitable tourneys and sit’n’gos.
Software and graphics: Absolute Poker’s software is very easy to use and has bright and clear design. The lobby is easily navigated and it is easy to follow the action at the tables. The software is very reliable and it doesn’t suffer from any down time or glitches. Some poker players prefer poker sites with amazing 3D effects and amazing sounds. You won’t find anything of that here - but if you just want a smooth poker game you won’t be disappointed.
Service and support: The support can only be reached via email. The site’s FAQ page covers most of the questions a poker player might have, but most other sites also offer both telephone support and live chat. Even though Absolute Poker’s support usually responds quickly, the site should definitely offer more support options.
Payment options: NETeller, Visa, MasterCard, UK Debit Cards, ePassporte, Instandebit, CLICK2PAY, CentralCoin and Moneybookers
