New Waves of Fun at Poker Ocean

It's about time that online poker players be exposed to a more refreshing online environment other than the green felt table. For some time, poker rooms have always shared the same graphic design and theme color that viewing the inside pages of Poker Ocean could only be more comforting and almost soothing to the eyes. However, a good poker site is not only limited to providing its poker clients with new ideas for an over-all graphic appeal. Game variety and software usability are only some factors to consider and though Poker Ocean hasn't yet reached the mark of becoming the new wave of online gaming platform, it could only be as promising as it could be.

What makes Poker Ocean an obvious pick from a slew of up-and-coming poker sites is the fact that it is strongly backed up by PlayTech as its software developer, and iPoker, a leading network in the online poker industry. As daunting as its reputation could be, one of its downside is no American players are allowed to play the games. With strict regulation on credit card service providers, unfortunately, Poker Ocean has lost a good market in U.S. boundaries. But instead, the site secures a multilingual support, which include eight languages such as English, German, French, Polish, Italian, Spanish, Turkish, and Swedish. In addition to this, it offers multi-currency options with larger based payment solutions -- NETeller, Wire Transfer, Moneybookers among other choices for reliable deposit and cash out activities.

Apart from having generally nice-looking graphics, it's good to know that this site would never compromise functionality. In fact, some of its common features are live floor managers to assist in ring games and tournaments, full screen mode for optimum visibility, and real-time history for quick updates. To ensure a more interactive experience, Poker Ocean has its own "Buddy List" function to track players online, while "Player Notes" may also be used for any observation on usual strategies of opponents. There's not much to say about the software design aside from the fact that it actually fits the preference of common users. The games do run a lot smoother than those of other poker sites.

Just for signing up, as much as $400 bonus is at stake for 100% match-up rate, while added perks include earning more points when playing for real money and $2,500 worth of monthly freerolls for a total 1,500 points. As if it's not enough, Poker Ocean also has in its active promo 100% monthly reload bonus. Apart from scoring more bonus points, poker clients may as well enjoy tournament traffic rate of 9,000 to 12, 000 players during peak hours and 2,000 to 6,000 ring game gamblers filling up the poker rooms at peak time of the day.

Nice game variety is also available for Seven Card Stud, Texas Hod'em, Omaha Hi/Lo, and Omaha Hi for Pot-Limit and Limit events. The popular Texas Hold'em offer may be played in No Limit games, while the Seven Card Stud is excluded from the Hi version. This poker site ranks high when it comes to soft competition and enticing jackpots of up to $50,000 for different levels of sit 'n go tournaments.

However, not-so-pleasing points to consider are moderate traffic at off-peaks, lower volume of high stake game players, and slower pace of the standard game. Poker Ocean also offers round-the-clock live customer support online or even through phone and e-mails.
