Pacific Poker - Where The Other Players Just Love To Give You Their Money
Pacific Poker has a loyal following, despite having some of the slowest and least attractive software on the net. The reason is simple – for some reason Pacific seems to attract some of the worst players on the web, and so there is money to be made there if you can play even a half decent game. Low limits games are particularly popular, with buy-ins from as low as 5 cents. There are bad players to be found at all levels, however!
Customer service is average, but players rarely need it as Pacific's giant servers mean the site is almost never troubled by the kind of crashes smaller sites sometimes suffer. Their sign up bonus is one of the best around, and it doesn't take long to play the number of hands needed to get paid. If you're looking for a generous bonus and weak opposition and you don't mind playing a slower game, then Pacific is a very good choice. Pacific also has the option for players to use a JAVA based platform to play, which makes it a viable choice for those using MACs or LINUX based computers. The non-download software has been redesigned, and MAC and LINUX users now report it runs pretty smoothly - the previous version was dogged by a series of glitches. The new software makes Pacific a reasonable rival to UltimateBet for those not running Windows, though it must be said that players used to UlitmateBet's super-slick software will be in for a shock when they sit down at a PacificPoker table.
Pacific has also introduced a new turbo poker game, where players have to make their decisions more quickly than in a standard game. Since the frustration at Pacific has always been the slow software, these new turbo games might go some way towards making playing at Pacific a pleasurable experience rather than simply a profitable one. If someone could combine Pacific Poker's terrible players with PokerStar's great software it would create the perfect poker room. In the meantime, sign up with both and use PokerStars for pleasure and Pacific for profit. It is a perfectly reputable poker room, and you won't have any problems getting paid - it is just that there are far, far better poker rooms available as a first choice.
