Absolute Poker.net Review

By: KJames

Absolute Poker is a medium size poker room that has grown in the past year by advertising their Absolute Poker.net brand and by accepting US poker players. In the past they had sluggish software but have improved their software immensely and are now on par with the industry. They also are known for offering constant reload bonuses and poker player promotions.

Absolute Poker.net is also known for their hot model Serinda Swan who is the face of the poker room and the star of the poker site's commercials. Instead of showcasing poker professionals, Absolute decided they would go for a model and I can't blame them. You can't go wrong with a model and Serinda does not disappoint.

The company that owns Absolute Poker also owns Ultimate Bet so players can do real money transfers between the poker sites. The feature is great if you have accounts at both places and want to pick and choose what tournaments and tables you want to play in.

Absolute Poker.com Referral Code

Absolute Poker offers the most bonuses of any online poker site. They have an initial 100% deposit bonus up to $500 dollars which is standard. But this is not the only bonus that you will be offered once you have an Absolute Poker account. They have frequent reload bonus weekends where for a limited time players can deposit using an exclusive reload bonus code. I have had friends that have taken advantage of the reload bonuses and enjoyed the constant bonus money that they received.

Absolute Poker.net Software

Absolute Poker over the last couple months has improved their poker software and I think they've done an excellent job. It isn't ground breaking poker software but they have taken their software to the level that it needs to be, on par with the rest of the industry.

Absolute Poker allows you to multi-table and offers re-sizing poker tables. They have a nice feature that enables players to click a button and have all of the open poker tables fit your screen. So, for example, if you have 4 poker tables open it will resize them and automatically tile them on your screen so you will be able to view all 4 at the same time without having to re-size and move them yourself.

The poker site offers a variety of ways to customize your poker experience. They have customizable avatars that allow you to change your table view. You can also customize the table skin and completely change the look of the Absolute Poker table. They also offer players the chance to pick their favorite seat so when you sit down at a table the software will place you into your preferred seat.

AbsolutePoker.com Cash Games

Most of the action at Absolute is at the Texas Hold-em tables. They also offer Omaha, Stud and Razz but there are usually only a couple games of each. The Texas Hold-em tables are usually filled with poker players with about 5-8 active tables at each limit. The most popular is the .50/1.00 NL games which when I play usually have about 15 games going with the majority of them 6 handed.

One of the most popular reasons why people choose to play cash games at Absolute Poker is the Bad Beat Jackpot. Tables highlighted in red are jackpot tables and they are usually full of players playing for a chance to reap the rewards of hitting a jackpot. The jackpot is usually around $200k and at the time of writing this review, the jackpot is currently $295k! The definition of a winner in the bad beat jackpot promo is losing with four eights.

Blackjack at Absolute Poker
Absolute Poker also offers blackjack for players interested in trying their luck at the blackjack table. The game allows you to play 3 hands simultaneously. They have stakes as low as .10 cents up to $500 dollars per hand.

Absolut Poker Tournaments

Absolute Poker makes it easy to find upcoming tournaments with their default sort of their poker tournaments. The first tournaments you will see are tournaments that are closest to starting and the farther away you go the farther out the start time. This seems like a logical way to do it and works great but surprisingly most poker rooms don't have it sorted like this.

Absolute Poker offers a variety of tournaments with guaranteed tournaments highlighted in red and qualifiers and satellites in green. They have tournaments starting every 15 minutes with most of their guaranteed tournaments starting after 19:00 EST.

They are currently running the Absolute Poker Dream package. Each player that has an account at Absolute Poker will get a free entry into a qualifier tournament. The Absolute Poker Dream Package will be won at a final tournament on April 6th where the winner will receive $50k in cash, WSOP entry, season pass to the $150k guaranteed and one on one tutoring by Mark Seif.

Absolute Poker.com Deposits and Withdraws

Absolute Poker offers US players a standard variety of options to deposit. They accept Visa, Mastercard, ewalletXpress, ePassporte, Bank Wire and Check by Mail. If you have problems depositing or have a question they list a phone number where you can speak with a telephone representative from Absolute. I think having a phone number is great and I hope this becomes a standard in the industry.

There are a couple of options for withdrawing your money at Absolute. They have two options for withdrawing by check, you can have it sent by regular mail or Fedex. Giving you the option is great but they have also decided to charge players for either option. It is $8 dollars for regular mail and $25 for Fedex, it would be more understandable to charge for the Fedex check but I think they shouldn't charge for a regular mail check. This is a drawback for playing at Absolute Poker.

There are free ways to withdraw your deposit by using a payment processor including ePassporte and eWalletXpress. Though, you will be charged their fees so it may be about the same in the end.

Absolute Poker.net Support

Absolute Poker has email support and live chat for regular customer support questions. They do have a phone number but this is used for deposit and withdraw questions. Although it would be great to have a phone number for regular questions, I find it satisfying to at least have support for the most important aspect of playing online poker and that is deposits and withdraws.
