‘High Speed Holdem’ on iPoker

Apologies for the inactivity since the last post but we have something pretty special to announce.

iPoker have now fully integrated ‘Speed Poker’ into their software.

The games are called ‘High Speed Holdem’ and there are player pools for the following limits.

$0.02/$0.05
$0.05/$0.10
$0.10/$0.20
$0.25/$0.50
$0.50/$1

All games are 6-max and most times of the day you will find in excess of 100 players in the pools up to $0.10/$0.20. Then as the site gets busier during the day and into the evening you see the rest of the limits getting similar numbers and there is often more than 2 pools running at some limits.

You can open as many tables as you wish.

Multi-tabling at Speed Poker means you are playing an incredible number of hands per hour. Realistically, each table will probably mean you are being dealt into 5 or 6 times as many hands per hour than normal.

This means that you can release bonuses at a ridiculously fast rate.

Our deal with Betfred gives you a completely exclusive deposit bonus of $2500 with a very special clearing rate.

We felt our deal with Betfred was something amazing but when you play ‘High Speed Holdem’ it makes the whole package totally unbeatable.

If you have never played Speed Poker before then you are in for a treat.

You sit down at a table exactly the same as normal, with one big difference.

As soon as you hit the ‘speed fold’ button, you are immediately dealt new cards and are facing 5 different players. If you prefer to wait for premium hands then you can just sit there, hitting the fold button until you see a hand that you like, then the game play is exactly the same as any other table.

It’s fast, exciting and totally addictive.

Good luck to you all and i hope to see you tearing up the ‘High Speed Holdem’ tables on iPoker very soon.

Players want security

It seems that not a  month goes by without news that a poker site has stopped operating.

The latest name is Purple Lounge.

This site stopped trading without any warning and players are still awaiting news on if and when they will get their funds back.

In view of what has happened in the last  12 months, starting with the Full Tilt episode from last year that is still unresolved, players are more and more concerned about reliability when choosing their poker sites.

We are seeing a definite trend with players willing to sacrifice a few percent of their monthly returns in exchange for the security of knowing that their hard earned money is safe.

Well known major bookmaking companies like Betfred, Stan James, Ladbrokes and William Hill are at the top of a lot of players’ lists.

In our opinion, these types of sites offer the greatest security. They have been around for a long time, know how to run their business, do not run at crazily low profit margins and generally offer excellent service to affiliates and players.

I would have no hesitation in recommending these types of sites to any player and the latest deal we agreed with Betfred offers maybe the best complete package we have ever offered, when you combine the player returns with the security of the site.

Multi Platform sites. What’s not to like?

We have discussed the idea of Multi Platform sites before but recently the idea has taken off and they are very much here to stay.

In fact the biggest player in the market are a Network called Poker in Venice (or, ‘PIV’, for short).

PIV have a number of skins underneath it that offer SIX different sites from a single central account.

One such skin is PokerXe.

Sign up a single PokerXe account and you deposit funds into their central casino cashier.

From there you can transfer, at the click of a button, as much or as little of your funds as you wish to any of the 6 sites on offer.

You can play at Merge, Everleaf, Entraction, ENET, Cake of Casino di Venezia.

You get a single huge deposit bonus of 300% up to €1500 and all rake you generate on all sites goes towards releasing the bonus.

The bonus releases at a rate equal to a 40% return.

That means you can effectively be playing on any of those sites with a 40% return, which is better than you would get by going to each individual site separately and signing up.

The incredible advantages with the multi-platform is that you have maybe the ultimate opportunity to ‘table select’. You can hunt out the fish on any of the 6 sites knowing that when you have found a juicy table you can immediately sit down.

You don’t need to worry about having bankrolls spread across 6 different sites either. You have a single account and use your funds how you wish.

It is also a great opportunity to try out some sites that previously you may not have considered.

Many players are reluctant to try new sites as they get used to their preferred home and don’t want to go through the hassle of waiting for funds to withdraw from one site, open a new account on a different site and re-deposit, only to find out that they don’t like the new site and they then wait to withdraw the funds again.

With a Multi Platform account you can just decide to give it a try and if you don’t like it for any reason, your funds can be removed in the blink of an eye and placed wherever you wish.

The Multi Platform concept is certainly here to stay.

It provides greater choice for players, great returns and possibilities to improve our winrates.

How do players pick their poker site?

To be a successful affiliate it is important to know what players really want from their poker site.

Obviously a good deal with good service is essential but why does a particular player play on a particular site?

This question is actually not so easy to answer.

Sometimes it’s a simple case of the player likes certain software and so sticks to a particular site or Network.

However, the overriding factor is certainly not simply where they get the biggest return.

If that were the case then we would have all our members playing on the same site where they get the biggest return.

Absolutely not!

So what is it?

Well from personal experience, the software was a big deciding factor for me.

I liked to play long hours multi-tabling and so the software needed to be good enough to allow that.

Something simple like re-sizeable tables, which players take for granted nowadays, were not always available on all sites.

It also never ceases to amaze me how one player can say that he absolutely loves the games and software on one particular site and another player will proclaim that it ‘tilts’ them like crazy and they can’t stand it.

This all goes to prove that there is not a single site that offers all things to all players.

It is this diversity that means that a good affiliate needs to be aware of the different preferences of all players and make sure he caters for as many of them as possible.

We also like to try out the various sites ourselves, just to get a feel for it.

It is no use reading reports that players hate a particular software and assume it must be bad.

We want to experience what the players see and find out exactly what they are talking about.

We find that players really appreciate it when we are able to relate to their comments from personal experience, rather than just blindly agree with whatever they are saying.

It is just one example of the personal touch that we find our players value in our service.

New look website

It’s been a while since our last post here, but this is with good reason.

We decided it was time to re-vamp the website.

It’s something we have been considering for a long time and January and February are usually fairly quiet months so we took the opportunity to spend a lot of time re-designing the whole look from front to back.

We decided we would be crazy to change the basic colour scheme as we are aware that our logo is very recognisable and the colouring is associated with this.

However we were also aware that it was maybe a little ‘too much’ for some delicate eyes and so it has been toned down a little.

It was then just the small matter of the content…..

It is always very difficult to know what is best.

Generally we ask ourselves what we would prefer and then use that as a template, but we have done that in the past and then get contacted by players telling us they have problems navigating the site.

Therefore we have decided to go with the idea that all players, existing or new, need certain basic information to help decide which deal is best.

How much is the rake back and deposit bonus?

What promotions are the site running and what extras are available by signing through us?

We also find that the Licensing arrangements of the poker sites are more and more important now to certain players and so that information needed to be easily viewed.

It’s then the question of finding a way to lay out the information in such a way that it is easily accessible to the viewer and he can see as much information as possible without needing to constantly be re-directed to different sections to find out what is included or not.

We like to think we have achieved this with the new site.

Take a look here and let us know what you think

How do we improve our service?

The eternal question for all affiliates is ‘’how can we improve our service?’’.

With 2012 just around the corner it’s always a time when we reflect back on the past year and look ahead to what coming.

We are delighted with the past year in terms of player numbers and are particularly pleased with the sharp increase in new players arriving as a result of being referred by existing customers.

We feel that this, above anything else, is a true indication that we are doing something right.

2011 saw us ‘re-design’ our website with a new style layout and easier to navigate pages of information.

We also saw our player base increase by approximately 25%, which is fantastic by any standard.

In order to continue this success we are looking for new ways to not only attract new customers, but also to keep existing players happy and try to improve the service and deals they already enjoy.

We are considering a number of innovations and would welcome feedback from our loyal customers.

Here are some of the things we are considering offering in the new year.

Free Hand History downloads for certain rake requirements.

Offers of free tuition, for high rakers, on the use of NoteCaddy on HoldemManager.

A regularly updated section dedicated to strategy and general poker tips for all levels of players.

These are just some of the thoughts we have had so keep checking our site to make sure you are first to see any new developments or offers.

Naturally, our existing players will be notified via our regular Newsletter.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our players for their continued support throughout 2011 and look forward to a very successful and prosperous New Year for each an every one of you.
