Launched in 2009, Winner Poker is a new online poker room that packs a lot of punch. Part of the iPoker Network, currently the third largest poker network in the industry, Winner.com is on the fast track to online poker stardom.
The most exceptional feature of Winner Poker at the moment is its tournament schedule, presenting the biggest network tournaments – like the $250k GTD every Sunday, as a part of the iPoker Network - plus a variety of live event opportunities. Winner.com is currently hosting live event satellites and qualifiers to the ECPoker Tour and the Irish Winter Festival.
An above average game variety and user-friendly poker client combine to give Winner Poker the potential to turn a newly established poker room into one of the top traffic bearers on the iPoker Network.
The poker client is very clean with appealing graphics and fast, smooth game play, hampered only by the extended period of time players are given to make a decision. PlayTech has long been known as a top casino software developer, but its poker client has come a long way in the couple of years.
Play up to 16 simultaneous ring games with exceptional multi-tabling features. The mini view functions allow for easy-to-see, tiled windows, up to 9 at once on a 22” screen. Concise tables gives players a straight forward game with clean controls.
Lobby statistics offer all of the crucial info, including viewed-flop percentage, average pot size and hands per hour. Personal stats are available to help players tweak their strategy in-game. A graphic representation of hand histories are easy to understand.
Winner Poker shares its player base with the iPoker Network, averaging 65,000 active players at peak hours; 10,000 in ring games, 55,000 in tournaments. Limit and No Limit Hold’em dominate the ring game traffic. Other variants are somewhat active.
Winner Poker has a jam-packed tournament schedule with enough traffic to ensure highly populated MTTs and SNGs. New players can participate in daily $50 freerolls for their first 90 days of membership. Other freerolls are held as special events or VIP exclusives, like the weekly $1k, bi-weekly $2.5k and monthly $5k Freerolls.
Guarantees occur often with prize pools in the 4- and 5-digit range. The biggest guaranteed tournaments are held each weekend, including the $50k Freezeout every Saturday, $100k GTD every Friday and the largest event, the $250k GTD on Sundays.
Winner.com has an above average game selection that includes Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7 Card Stud and 5 Card Stud. The absence of 7 Card Stud Hi-Lo is sorely missed, however. Stakes range from $0.02/$0.04 in Fixed Limit and $0.01/$0.02 in No Limit and Pot Limit, to as high as $50/$100 in fixed Limit, $25/$50 in No Limit.
Winner.com has a lot of soft players at the tables. Stick to the Texas Hold’em games to find average viewed-flop percentages of 40-50% in low to mid-level stakes. Other variants are way less populated, but those who do play are generally tight, skilled opponents.Sign Up Bonus
