Intercasino Poker Review

intercasino

Play for real money or play poker for fun against other real online players with InterCasino Poker’s free poker software.

InterCasino Poker is part of InterCasino, winner of Gambling Online Magazine’s Top Casino award in 2001, 2002 and 2003. InterCasino is also the oldest casino, and has a very dedicated support staff – with backing from a company like that, InterCasino Poker room sounded promising from the very beginning.

Software

It is clear that the program designers have wished to focus on functionality, playability and communication features. There are no unnecessary bells and whistles, or graphical elements to noise up the user interface. The game menus are intuitive and inviting, and the in-game graphics, albeit simple, really work.
At the time of this review, there were 4 different varieties of poker to choose from: Texas Hold’em, 7 Card Stud, Omaha or Omaha Hi/Lo. I must admit I found the lack of 5 Card Stud a bit disappointing.

It is possible to chat with the other players around the table, which is nice, especially if you want to let off some steam after a couple of very lousy hands.
Be sure to check out some of the high-roller tables where the average stakes are around $1000.

Bonus rules

Receive a $50 bonus every single month. To get the bonus, you must complete 250 real money hands in the month – sounds like quite a bit, but this can be accomplished quickly at some of the low-stake tables.

Find Ryan Hartley, the casino manager, at the tables and win an instant cash prize.

Special features

There’s a live chat option inside the casino software. This is something every single online casino should try to implement in the future – good work, InterCasino Poker for being a frontrunner in this area.

Personal column

Aside from the occasional casual game with friends and ridiculously low wagers, I had never tried playing for real money before. I have played at InterCasino Poker for around one month now, and have won a bit more than I have won. I usually play at the low-stake tables, where the beginners hang around (with my poker skills, I’ll probably be staying here for quite a bit).

Parting thoughts

Since this is the only poker room I’ve played at, it is difficult to make any comparisons. The reason I downloaded InterCasino Poker was due to my very positive experience with InterCasino, the casino behind it. My expectations were not let down, and I can only recommend this poker room – great fun!
