PaddyPower Poker is one of the higher profile online poker rooms on the web as it advertises everywhere and anywhere. We would be surprised if you haven't spotted the logo sponsoring something you watch on TV or a sporting event somewhere! However, this is no bad thing as it attracts large numbers of players, many of whom aren't experienced poker players. This means there is a lot of action at the smaller stakes tables, making it a great place for beginners.
PaddyPower Poker offers a downloadable client that is only compatible with Windows PCs, but if you are running a different operating system you can pay through the in-browser client. Both work very well and the browser-based client is great if you fancy a quick game while on the move. As well as the standard client software PaddyPower Poker offers a free downloadable odds calculator which plugs into the main client and essentially lets you know how good your cards are. It won't make you an instant winner, but if you stick to what it tells you it should be possible to make a profit in the long term.
There is a great selection of tournaments on offer at PaddyPower Poker. The main one being promoted just now is the $50,000 Leader of the Pack tournament which looks to be very popular with regular players. In addition there is a huge range of tournaments for all levels of player from those who just want to spend a few dollars to high rollers looking for big wins. PaddyPower Poker also run special tournaments for different groups of people such as beginners or, at the moment, students. There are also freeroll tournaments for new depositors and players who have earned a VIP level so no one is left out!
The PaddyPower Poker VIP reward program is very simple and allows you to do what suits you best with your reward points. At any time you can exchange them for hard cash or tournament entry, but if you save them up and reach the higher VIP levels the rewards get much greater. High prize freeroll tournaments are on offer as well as cash bonuses on the first of the month for anyone of General or above rank. There is no longer an online store where you can exchange points for products, but overall the scheme can still be very profitable.
PaddyPower Poker runs an excellent online poker room and we would recommend it to beginners and experienced players alike. As with many of the sites in this category it is really almost deserved of a place in our top ten, but there just aren't enough places to go round! Signing up is completely free and lets you try out the play money tables, which is a great way to start if you are new to the game. By all means check out our top ten too, but we are sure you won't be disappointed with PaddyPower Poker.
