Kingdom of Poker Review
Kingdom of Poker
Kingdom of Poker is branding themselves as "Asia's Online Poker Room" and they just added some Kingdom Pros. This site definitely has potential as they feature chinese (13 card)poker in addition to the regular poker games. The biggest problem here is the very low traffic.
Sign Up Bonus: 100% to $1000
Bonus Code: No Codes Used
KingdomofPoker.com is a very interesting upstart site in the online poker industry. The site first launched in January 2012, making it one of the newest sites in online poker, but unlike most fledgling poker rooms, Kingdom of Poker has decided to forego joining an online poker network in order to offer their own unique gaming experience. They are very new, but until they can get their traffic up they are sinking. I tried it and there were only 20 cash players!
The sight focuses on Asian poker players, but players from other parts of the world are more than welcome to join the site, going so far as to offer Chinese Poker and Mah Jong to their customers, as well as the usual poker games found around the Internet like Texas Holdem and PLO. The site’s goal is to give you the most authentic feel of the booming Macau poker scene that is possible at an online poker site.
The site has even signed a handful of poker pros as part of their Team, with players like Andrew Chen, Joe Tehan, John Van Fleet, Simon Charette, and card-room manager Alex Fitzgerald.
At this time KingdomofPoker.com is not accepting US poker players.
TRAFFIC AND COMPETITION
It’s hard to grade KingdomofPoker’s traffic and competition at this point, considering the site is only months old, and is not part of a larger poker network. The path they have taken (opening as an independent online poker room) will be a tough road in the beginning, but it could pay-off in the end as the site can continue to do things their own way –for instance, if they had joined a network they would have to switch to the network’s software which would eliminate Chinese Poker and Mah Jong from their list of games.
The software at Kingdom of Poker is adequate at the moment, and should undergo a number of upgrades as all of the kinks get worked with the site now online. For instance, one recent software update saw the site add:
- Hand Replay -lets you immediately replay and review each hand you’ve played at every table during your current session – all in one place.
- Save hand history – by recording your game moves online you will be able to review and discuss your moves later.
- Financial History – you will be able to review your financial transactions at the table.
I would expect more of these updates in the near future as the site implements all of their features.
As with virtually all upstart online poker rooms now is definitely the time to take advantage of the bonuses and promotions running at Kingdom of Poker. Currently the site is offering all first-time players a very nice deposit bonus of 100% up to $1,000. This bonus is available to all first-time players at the site.
KingdomofPoker.com also offers a unique Jackpot bonus. Instead of a bad beat or a royal flush the jackpot is awarded to a certain card combination (almost like a slot machine), so on any given hand you could be holding the winning cards.
The site utilizes a very basic VIP Loyalty Program where players earn Kingdom Points based on the amount of rake they generate each hand. There are no levels in the KoP Loyalty Program and the points never expire. These points can then be used toward tournament entries or other prizes –with the site likely to add a full store and cash reward options in the future.
For a brand spanking new online poker room, KingdomofPoekr.com offers a pretty good assortment of deposit and withdrawal options for their players. The site accepts major credit cards as well as a number of online payment processors. Here is a look at the current funding options available at Kingdom of Poker:
