Vegas Poker 247.com Overview
is a skin off of the Absolute Poker network. Because of this, you can expect to see a lot of traffic being that Absolute still accepts US players. During the evenings in EST you can expect to see more than 20,000 connected - so finding a game for your limit shouldn't be too hard!
Vegas Poker 247 has the basic games you will find on any other poker site; limit, pot-limit, and no-limit Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud, 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo, and Razz. The best thing that I noticed at Vegas Poker 247 was the wide variety of limits that people were playing. There micro, mid, and even high stakes always had at least 5 tables running - more so for the lower limits. I also noticed that there were more people playing games other than Hold'em (Omaha, Stud, and Razz) on Vegas Poker 247 compared to other competing sites. If you are interested in working on your total poker game and expanding past just Hold'em, Vegas Poker 247 would be a great choice.
Sit & Go play is mainly dominated by the low buyin tournaments. There were always multiple tournaments running with buyins less than $55. There also were a few steady SnGs running during the peak hours over $55. One of the features I enjoyed the most was being able to create your own Sit & Go or Multi-Table Tournament. Few sites offer this and it is fun to be able to play with just your friends.
Multi-Table Tournament play has some nice traffic at Vegas Poker 247. Everyday they have various guaranteed tournaments ranging from $500 (just $1 buyin!) up to $9000 ($25 buyin). Vegas Poker 247 also offers a weekly $200 + $16 buyin with a guaranteed pool of $150K. They offer many more tournaments daily, and have many special weekly and monthly MTTs. Please visit Vegas Poker 247 for a complete listing and tournament schedule.
Vegas Poker 247 also isn't shy about giving away money! Everyday they give away over $500 in multiple freeroll tournaments. Many of these freerolls can also land you some big payouts. For example, they are always running satellites to their $150k qualifier, which is quite the payout for a freeroll!
Regardless of your location, you will be able to find a way to deposit funds onto Vegas Poker 247. The methods they have available are; Visa/Mastercard, ePassporte, Click2Pay, moneybookers, Neteller, and UK Debit. Due to the recent legislation it may be hard for a US player to find a deposit method that is right for them. Because of this, Vegas Poker 247 recommends you use your Visa or Mastercard. If you can not, the second option they recommend is using ePassporte, which accepts US customers.
