Winner Poker is an above average poker room that ticks all the right boxes without any fancy flourishes. It offers a decent client, some big tournaments, lots of players and an excellent rewards program so does everything it needs to earn its stars with us. There isn't much outstanding about Winner Poker, but it is equally as good as many online poker rooms around so well worth considering.
Signing up to Winner Poker is a simple affair and will let you try out the play-money tables to see if you like the feel of the place. Although there is a basic Flash poker game that can be played through your browser if you want to play poker for real you will have to download the client, which is only compatible with Windows-based Pcs. The client provides all the features you would expect from a decent poker client, such as playing at multiple tables, taking notes on players and a game history recorder. The graphics aren't the best we have seen, but do the job without being too flashy.
The biggest tournament Winner Poker offers is the weekly £200,000 guaranteed prize freezeout on a Sunday evening. This and the Friday night £60,000 guaranteed prize tournament attract quite a lot of players, as you would expect for such big prizes. However, there are plenty of players at all times and even if you prefer one of the less popular poker variations, such as Omaha, you should find plenty of folks at the tables. Winner Poker boasts a good number of freeroll tournaments too, some of which you qualify for just by making a deposit or by being a new player.
As we mentioned previously the Winner Poker reward scheme can be quite profitable and offers a great selection of rewards to choose from. Simply getting enough VIP points to gain a level will automatically get you the cash bonus for that level and after that you can choose to spend points on tournament entry or at the online store. Most VIP levels are based on your monthly total, but there is also an annual level awarded on hitting the right targets. There is a handy table on the Winner Poker site which shows you how many points you get based on the rake taken from a hand and without going into the maths you can take our word that it is quite generous compared to other sites.
Winner Poker is a good all round online poker room that doesn't really put a foot wrong anywhere. At the same time there is no real stand-out feature apart from, arguably, the generous rewards program. It's free to sign up and equally as good as many other poker rooms around though which, in our book, makes it well worth a look.
