Quick summary of Absolute Poker

Although Absolute Poker offers one of the best rooms as far as loyalty rewards and bonuses, the software and graphics aren’t completely up to the standards you would expect from a poker network. It is adequate, but there is still room for improvement. Absolute Poker and Ultimate Bet have recently started collaborating, allowing for easy money transfer between the two rooms.

The games that are available are good, and they also offer some more rare finds, such as Razz and H.O.R.S.E., but most of the players are still found in the lower to mid-limit section playing Hold’em. The software looks nice, and runs perfectly while offering some very useful features. If you are new to the game of poker online, Absolute Poker is definitely a good choice. They offer one of the best sign-up bonuses in the industry, and the games are not impossible to beat.

Software and Graphics

Many people feel that the software behind Absolute Poker lacks the “poker feeling”. The graphics are sometimes amateurish, and the textures aren’t the best to look at. However, the software is still good at what it is supposed to do – which is to make it easy to navigate and logical to understand.

There are some good features with the software including hand history game stats, find a player and note taking abilities. It also offers a “private tournament” option, allowing players to set up their own tournaments with their friends. The software allows for mini-viewing, letting you change the size of the table however you want, as well as having the ability to automatically cascade active tables. These functions are great when you are wanting to multi-table.

There are areas that could be improved however. Sometimes the game can be a bit slow, and you can’t turn the animations off. If you do turn the sometimes annoying sound effects off, you will also be turning the alert sounds off. We are really hoping that Absolute Poker will fix this oversight very soon, because other than that, it does have one of the best platforms for playing poker in the industry.

Poker Traffic

The cash game traffic is continually growing, to where there are usually around 2000 cash players online during the peak time periods. If low or mid stakes Hold’em is your game, you can be sure to always find a game with soft competition. The higher stakes games might be a bit further between, but it isn’t impossible to find some high stake action now and then.

There aren’t often many games taking place in the Seven Card Stud section, but the Omaha section has been seeing a definite increase in traffic lately. At peak hours, the tournament traffic is very nice, with almost 10,000 players active.

Game Variety

Absolute Poker tends to be more focused on Texas Hold’em, as well as the different kinds of tournaments. There is fixed and no limit Texas Hold’em offered, that can be played short-handed, one-on-one, or full ring. The other games include Omaha Hi/Lo, Omaha, Razz, Seven Card Stud and Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo.

All of the games are available as no limit or fixed pot. The Texas Hold’em fixed limit games can range anywhere from $150-$300 all the way down to $.02-$.04. The no limit Hold’em games range from $5 – $10 to $.05-$.10.

Bonuses and Promotions

Absolute Poker does offer one of the best sign up bonuses available to online players. Any deposit up to $500 will be matched 150%, which is a tremendous deposit bonus (Bonus code: pbabbonus). There is also a refer-a-friend bonus which looks very appealing as well. It works by crediting your account with $75, and your friend’s account with $50, when you refer them and they have played 200 raked hands.

Absolute Poker also gives many good free rolls, and satellites to the WSOP. There are often lucrative reload bonuses available in the poker rooms for loyal players. There are usually different reload bonus offers available 6 – 7 times per month, ranging anywhere from 15% to 100%. The loyal player can also benefit from the VIP program.


At this time, Absolute Poker is only offering email correspondence, however their response time is very fast. There is also a page dedicated to frequently asked questions designed to help anyone with common questions. But, the lack of telephone support is definitely a negative factor in the overall support offered by the site.
