PayPal Poker Reviews

There are tens, maybe even hundreds, of online poker sites, casinos and sportsbooks. All of them tout the same thing; they’re the best site with the biggest bonuses, promotions, guaranteed tournaments and softest games.

You know what they say though; actions speak louder than words. And the actions of most of these sites would indicate that they’re far from being the best. Many of them turn out to be scammers, while others find out within 6-12 months they weren’t prepared to run a business and have to close up shop. Often times with the players’ money.

From a players’ perspective this makes it difficult to know what sites to sign up to. Everyone says they’re the best, but only a few truly are. It can make you feel like you’re taking a risk with every site you sign up to.

It doesn’t have to be that way though. There are ways to reduce, almost eliminate, the risk of choosing an online poker site.

One way is to sign up to a poker site. You can play for free to check out their software, games, traffic and to test their support. If that goes well you can make a small deposit and go from there.

Another way to go – and the one I recommend – is to read reviews from a trusted site, such as ours. We’re biased, sure, but at the same time we have more than 10 years experience in the online gaming industry. Being poker players ourselves, we know what players want and need in a site.

So what you’ll find below are links to reviews of recommended UK / Euro poker sites. Each review will have information about their games, traffic, safety, software and promotions. We tell you everything you need to know to make an informed decision.

Our Top Recommendations For Euro & UK PayPal Poker Sites

888 Poker – There are several things that stick out to us about 888 Poker. For one thing, they’re one of the few operators on this page that will be operating in the United States. In fact, we expect to see them launch their first site towards the end of 2013. In addition to that they offer web-cam and 3D poker, and are compatible with Macs, PCs and Android/Apple phones and tablets.

Bwin Poker – Bwin is known for their loose action and fast withdrawal turnaround times. New players will enjoy their $500 deposit bonus, while all real money players will be able to participate in their B’ Inside VIP program. Bwin is another operator aiming to offer online poker in the United States by the end of 2013.

Paddy Power Poker – Of the sites listed on this page, Paddy Poker has the most traffic at peaks hours (10,000). They have one of the largest bonuses, too, with a 200% match offer up to $2,000. One thing that stands out the most about Paddy Power is their anonymous tables. Players are identified with numbers instead of screen names, so no player will become a (long term) target. This is great for beginners.

Betfair Poker – Betfair shares the same network with Paddy Power, so you’ll see similar games and promotions. They, too, have a 200% match offer up to $2,000. They also have a 13-tier VIP program and several $5-free promos. The one thing that stands out about Betfair, though, is their iPOPS tournament series. This series is going on 5 years now. This year they have 16 tournaments with a combined guaranteed prize pool of more than $1 million.

Ladbrokes Poker – Players will enjoy Ladbrokes due to their 200% deposit bonus, Sunday tournament schedule with more than $80,000 in guarantees and their mobile compatibility. They’re also different from their competitors in that players can deposit and withdrawal from their physical betting shops, allowing players to withdrawal as much as $5,000 at one time.
