Briefly – PokerKing is a Curacao-based website focusing on players from the USA, who comprise most of its users. Plenty of recreational players use the site, especially during peak hours, in part thanks to the network’s attractive promotions designed for amateur players.
PokerKing is part of the Winning Poker Network, which operates a number of brands catering mostly to North American players, and especially those in the USA. Naturally, American players comprise the majority of PokerKing’s traffic and the traffic peaks during evenings and weekends in EST time. This might be a bit inconvenient, but a few late nights is a fair price to pay for the weak opponents you will encounter on WPN’s network.
PokerKing offers a large selection of poker games, such as Texas Hold’em, Omaha, 7 Stud, 32 Card Draw and Teen Patti available in limit, pot limit, and no limit types of tables. You will also find a rich choice of tournaments, including high stake online series. There is also a weekly $50,000 Guarantee every Sunday with a bunch of satellites with affordable buy-ins.
PokerKing also offers 3-player Hyper-Turbo Sit & Go tourneys with a random draw for the tournament prize pool. The award is between 2 and 2,500 times the buy-in, which means you can win up to $100,000 within minutes!
The traffic is not ideal unless you play during peak EST hours, when at least 1,500 players hit the tables. Since those are mostly recreational players from the USA, you will meet lots of amateurs even at high-stake tables.
NLHE tables see plenty of action with more than a dozen tables open at mid-stakes and at least 5 running at NL1K. PLO traffic is better than expected, at peak times you will see 6–7 tables of PLO100, 4–5 tables of PLO200 and 3–4 tables of PLO400–PLO1K.
In other good news, the traffic in HU games both in NLHE and in PLO is pretty decent with around 10 tables at 100–200 stakes.
Multi-table tournaments attract lots of players at the expense of SNG tourneys, where you will struggle to find enough high-stake tables.
DEPOSIT AND WITHDRAWAL METHODS
PokerKing’s cashier offers a number of popular payment methods, such as Visa, Skrill, Neteller, ecoPayz, and even bitcoin. There is also Visa by Skrill and Mastercard by Skrill, which allows you to deposit with your bank card through your Skrill account. All of these payment options are available as withdrawal methods as well.
- Traffic peaks in inconvenient times for players based in Europe
- Poker software requires installation
- The website is poorly structured, lots of important information hidden in drop-down menus.
