Everest Poker review
A truly multi-national poker room
One of the key strengths of Everest Poker is that its software, powered by Grand Virtual, supports loads of languages across the world, from Hungary to Japan. This paves the way for a good range of country-specific tourneys and serves to attract a lot of new players to the game. Being prolific across the rest-of-the-world means Everest has actually benefitted from the US restrictions, strengthening its position as a leading global poker room.
Hold’em & Omaha experts
Stud and Draw players could be disappointed as Everest Poker only offers Hold’em and Omaha games. But, with all the fish darting around a good variety of sit & go’s there’s money to be made for the better players. The turbo and speed tourneys are fun and play is loose, but there are a lot of low-stake players here. Tournaments are generally a bit smaller but there is good opportunity to compete in the Everest Poker European Championship, and their official sponsorship of the 2009 WSOP means qualifying comes with a kick-ass VIP package. Generally, Everest is very strong on poker promotions.
Everest Poker Bonus
For a limited time, Everest Poker is offering a $300 Welcome Bonus (usually $100) to new players using bonus code EN300 and coming from Pokeriot. To activate bonus use THIS LINK. Subsequent bonuses are awarded on accumulation of Summit Points, Everest Poker’s loyalty programme which is actually pretty good.
Attracting a lot of new players currently is their $1000 New Depositors Freeroll. This is open to all new players who make their first deposit within a week of their registration giving them the chance to play the free poker tournament for a share of the $1000.
Everest Poker Room in summary
Everest Poker Room is a great destination if you want to play in your native tongue – the low-stake players attracted by the Freeroll and comprehensive poker school are counter-acted by high-stake players who would rather play in their own language. As such most types of play can be found here.
The focus on Hold’em and Omaha, while potentially limiting, does mean that the software supports a multitude of nationalities and the aesthetics are good. Avatars are fairly high quality and the site is easily navigated – even if there is a lot of noise around promotions. Bonuses are good and customer service reliable. In short, Everest Poker is an exciting global community it’s worth being part of.Visit Everest Poker
