New Online Poker Network LaunchesMonday, May 7th, 2012 by Ryan
It seems that in recent months the online poker world has been patiently waiting on the outcome of the situation with Full Tilt Poker, but not everyone is just sitting back watching and waiting. There has officially been a brand new online poker network that launched this past week called the Poker Pros Network. This network not only features quite a few interesting poker rooms under it, but is also United States poker player friendly, which is excellent news for players in the States. There are seven different poker rooms listed underneath the online poker network, and each network will do things just a bit differently as well to draw in different types of players.
This new network is owned by a company that is based out of Costa Rica called CMK Interactive. One thing that is very interesting about the layout of the new sites on this network is that all of the sites actually look almost the same in terms of color schemes and such, but each site does different things. There will be quite a few of the promotions that are ran that all of the sites will be included in, and most of them will use the same software as well, but each site’s differences will probably shock you quite a bit.
When looking at the new sites we’ll give you a few examples of what you can expect if you download the each specific one. For ManiacalPoker.com you’ll find that the games can be a bit crazy including tournaments that have million chip starting stacks and are purely all-in tournaments. The blinds will increase every minute, and you get the chance to win some cool prizes that you wouldn’t typically have the option as well. You’ll find that they also have “Maniacs” that come to the tables sometimes and will play crazy, but also give away different prizes and some money to different players as well!
And then you’ll find the site NoTiltPoker.eu which features different satellites into big time events like the $1k Seniors World Championship at the 2012 World Series of Poker, and also has different satellites into the $10k World Series Main Event as well it seems. CheapSeatsPoker.com is another site under the new network, and they are going to offer mainly low stakes games for players ranging from $0.01/$0.02 limits to $0.25/$0.50, and their tournaments will be between $0.05 and $4. The freerolls with have small prize pools as well for players, ranging from $1 to $5. For those interested, the other sites on the network are LoungeLizardPoker.com, PPNLiveDealers.com, PokerRoomUSA.com, and PPNPoker.eu. They will also be launching a site with live dealers called PPNLiveDealers this summer.
The reviews of the Poker Pros Network have been good so far, but it is still fairly new so they are building their traffic currently. The cashouts have been said to be very reliable, which is one of the biggest and most important things to a lot of online poker players in the United States for obvious reasons these days.
