Online Poker Room Directory

With hundreds of poker rooms to choose from, how to you decide where to play? Personal preferences aside, there are a few things you should take into consideration when choosing an online poker room...
  • A strong player base:
    There's nothing worse than downloading a new place to play, only to discover there's no-one to play with. Bigger rooms/networks have lots of players, so there's open tables of just about every type.
  • Reliable and fair gaming:
    While you don't have to worry about direct card manipulation, online poker rooms should still have managers and regular checks in place to prevent collusion on the tables amongst players.
  • The games and limits you want to play:
    Not all poker rooms offer the same game selection and/or table limits, so be sure to choose one that suits the games and limits you are comfortable with.

We've taken care of the first two for you by only listing poker rooms with at least a respectable number of players, and only those with a commitment to fair gaming for it's patrons. The rest is up to you!

Note: You can play at any of the following poker rooms for real money or just for fun or practice with no obligation.

Clean and simple software that looks and runs well. Operated by Casino On Net this is a great poker room with good game variety - but only offers fixed limit stakes on normal tables.

A nice looking piece of software that incorporates animated characters into the game quite well, and is worth a peek for the novelty if nothing else. Notably missing is 7 Card Stud games, but a good match for low to middle-limit Hold'em players.

Offers 'pretty' software without much substance. A relatively small player base compared to other rooms, limited selection of games and tournaments, and slow paced table action.
