Rolling in at no.3 on our list is Paradise Poker an all-around fantastic site with a proven track record. Paradise used to occupy the top spot in the online poker world as the largest poker room on the internet.
It’s since been eclipsed in this specific area by Party Poker and a few others, but hasn’t fallen that far and its strength in other categories has hardly diminished. Paradise is consistently cited as one of the online poker world’s most popular destinations and is considered by many to have one of the best software platforms around.
Software, however, isn’t the only thing that runs smoothly at Paradise; customer service is exceptional, payouts are fast, tournaments are popular and run well, and the game selection is right up there among the industry leaders.
Bonus offers, in our opinion, could be improved a bit at Paradise but this isn’t the site’s primary, or most oft-cited, drawback. The major “problem” (although for some, it really isn’t a problem at all) at Paradise Poker is the competition – it doesn’t get much stiffer than here and sharks abound. In other words, don’t visit this room looking for easy or soft tables.
The recent influx of new players might change this a bit, but similar to the problem at Pacific Poker, Paradise will have to work hard to shake its reputation as a tough spot at which to play.
Aside from this observation, however, there is nothing standing in the way of whole heartedly recommending this poker room for all of you out there looking for a safe, reliable, and, most importantly, enjoyable online poker experience. Check it out for yourself!
