We will update the review and bonus codes if there is any changes to Pacific Poker.
ProPokerGuide Pacific Poker's Bonus Code for new players:
Pacific Poker's Traffic (5):
Traffic for PacificPoker.com is on the low side when compare to the top poker sites. At the time of our review, there was 5510 players online with 842 tables. The low limit /stakes tables do get filled up quickly. We had to join a waiting list during our test.
Pacific Poker's Game Variety (6):
PacificPoker.com offers a variety of poker games such as Omaha, 7 cards stud, texas hold em, etc. You can play for free or play real money. Each one has various pot limit and no limit tables for you to play in. Big Blinds start as low as $0.10. Pacific Poker also offers various tournaments for you to join. Buyin starts at a friendly $1. The variety of poker tournament is constantly growing. No high stakes poker yet.
Pacific Poker's Rake (6):
Pacific Poker's rake is on par with the other poker sites. Pacific Poker will only rake when there is a flop.
Pacific Poker's software crashed on us not once, but twice during the review. PacificPoker.com's software color scheme seems dull. When you reach the poker table, there is no chat box unless you click it, which will open up a notepad kind of popup. It seems like no one uses the chat box because of that. Doesn't really promote player interactions that way. When someone bets or raise, you can't tell how much they raise until you look hard at your call button. When you win a hand, it doesn't tell you right away. Sometimes we didn't even know we won. We would have to click on chat to scroll back up to see how we won. The lack of avatars and chat built it, plus the dark color scheme of the table, made it boring to play after a while. Players have to sign up for two different login if you want to have a play money and real money account.
Pacific Poker's Support (7):
PacificPoker.com offers email and telephone support. Email response was good, but the telephone support was slow.
Pacific Poker's Loyalty Bonus (6):
Pacific Poker has an loyalty program that is on par with most of the other poker sites. If you refer a friend, then you will get a $50 bonus while your friend gets a $25 bonus. If you want to join their affiliate program, you'll have to register for another account with their parent company 888.com. You'll also get points for every rake that reaches $1. Those points could be used to redeem various promotions.
