The Sportsbook Poker Experience

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Several of the professional reviewers who have taken a look at Sportsbook as an online poker network have been pleasantly surprised, using terms like "diamond in the rough" to describe the site, which offers a variety of features and opportunities to players. The play experience on Sportsbook is very different than what you'll find at many of its competitors, and for some, this is a refreshing and much needed change. For others, it may be somewhat irritating.

One of the first differences of Sportsbook is its bonus structure. This is going to be a really nice surprise for almost everyone. Many of the site's promotions, which rotate frequently, include instant bonuses (no frequent player points required) or permanent deposit bonuses. This means that you're going to be able to get into the Sportsbook network quickly.

Once you've started, you'll notice that Sportsbook has an appearance that's different from many other poker sites. It uses an old school look, one that's familiar to those who have played online poker for years. You'll select an avatar to represent you at a virtual table. Many other sites have stepped away from this model. Luckily, if this appearance bothers you, then you can switch to the simpler table view that sites like Poker Stars and Full Tilt have used.

The level of player traffic is surprisingly good at the tables, and this is almost certainly because of the advantages and rewards that Sportsbook offers table players. The site uses an incentive-based program of gold chips and gold cards, which reward you for staying at tables and engaging in table play over long periods of time. Unfortunately for serious tournament players, tournament traffic is lacking, and there's no sign that it will pick up. Sportsbook has proven that it is a decent choice, but it certainly has both strengths and weaknesses.
