Most Popular Poker Sites
Online poker has and will continue to grow significantly as more and more players become interested in taking their poker action found within an offline environment such as casinos and card rooms, onto the internet to increase their playing availability and stake selection opportunities.
Within such a competitive market, online poker rooms are constantly looking to become the most popular online poker room on the internet, offering promotions, bonuses and other draw factors in a bid to draw more players into their site than any other poker room.
There are a couple of major sites within the running of being the most popular online poker room but the difference between the top two is a little more than a couple of members and a new promotion here and there.
Here we will look at the top 2 most popular online poker sites available on the internet and we’ll even look to see exactly why they are regarded as the most popular poker sites in the world.
#1 Poker Site
PokerStars is the world’s biggest online poker room, boasting a huge player base of over 20 million players and promoting some of the biggest names within the poker industry such as Daniel Negreanu, Joe Hachem and Chris Moneymaker.
Proving to be an industry leader isn’t something that the site takes lightly either, offering tournaments and poker action every hour of every day, with more than $15 million in prizes every day.
The tournament selection is one of the biggest in the market and the chance to face of with the professionals within the higher stakes action means that players both new and experienced are offered the chance to really push their playing ability to the maximum.
Back to the fact that the industry is so competitive and you can see that the site is completely aware of what their rivals are offering to potential players, increasing their new player sign up bonus into line with their biggest rivals.
#2 Poker Site
Although the site isn’t as big as the previous two sites that we have mentioned, the game selection and tournament schedule is not one that should be overlooked.
You are offered the chance to play the poker variant that you desire yet have the chance to try to avoid the professionals by sticking within the mid stake tables, leaving the higher stake tables to the players who make a living from the game.
The site is trying to really establish itself within the industry and is more than willing to sit within the third place spot at the moment due to the sheer power that PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker seem to have when it comes to attracting new players to their site.
The software at the site is used throughout their network but with a great level of usability and gameplay, you can see exactly why they would be willing to place it onto more than simply one of their sites.
The game selection at the site offers all the variants that you would expect to see and wish to play at any online poker room and their frequent bankroll booster freerolls offer players the chance to increase their funds through free to enter poker tournaments worth $30,000.
Never a site to miss out on the chance to offer players a little something extra, their new player sign up bonus offers you the chance to double your money up to the value of $500 as well as gaining entrance into a freeroll tournament created especially for new players that offers a prizepool of $1,500. Not bad for a free entry tournament eh?
Update – It’s now 2011 and Pokerstars is still the largest and most popular online poker site. New players can use the PokerStars marketing code 2011, which is PSP13785 for a $600 bonus. Will Full Tilt Poker become the most popular online room in 2011? Maybe.
