Everest Poker Review

Everest Online Poker Website » Click here to play Everest Poker »
Everest Poker, online since 2005, is part of the online casino group Grand Virtual Gaming Alliance and licensed by Kahnawake Gaming Commision. It's software is powered by just Grand Virtual and to my knowledge, it's the only poker room today using it. Everest Poker takes pride in being a multinational and multilingual poker site offering software and support in more than ten different languages.

The poker lobby itself it not something I would put my name on as it looks like it's been designed by a 10-year old. But, it seems to work without too many problems and maybe that's the most important thing and it does show the cards very clearly which is a good thing. The only feature really worth mentioning is a poker tutorial for absolute newbies. However, I feel obliged to tell you the software is slow, slow, slow - and pretty resource intensive.

Games, Traffic & Tournaments

Ring game traffic on Everest Poker is very high for a stand-alone poker room, between 12,000-20,000 players depending on day and time. You will find an great number of NL tables from $0.10/0.10 to $10/10 (yes, the NL blinds are the same, I wish someone could tell me why!). Heads Up, full ring or shorthanded makes no difference, there's always an ongoing game here regardless of what limits you play. Naturally, the low and medium limits sections are the busiest ones just like everywhere else. Fixed limit games are also easy to find especially in the $0.05/0.10 - $5/10 interval, Micro to mid-stakes players will always have 40-50 tables to choose from. Worth noting that Everest Poker only carries Texas Hold'em.

Everest's MTTs selection is not the greatest but not bad either. Tournaments from $1 to $33 run on a daily basis and the lower buy-in ones are by far the most popular. For those of you who play higher stakes, the daily $500-$15000 guarantees with buy-ins from $5 to $50 might be something to try. A good number of MTT satellites and qualifiers to bigger events (see featured tournaments, left) run around the clock. Summit Points (SPs) tournaments and freeroll tournaments run several times a day. SPs can be used to buy into most bigger events, even the monthly $100K. The number of STTs running is amazing, some 400 tables or so, both limit and no limit (mostly), from as little as 10c to $200. If you are a low to mid-stakes player, there will always be a high number of tables to choose from, day and night.

Promotions And Support

The Everest Poker welcome bonus is somewhat special. $100 is given to anyone who makes a first deposit regardless of amount. I recommend putting in at least $200 if you want to give yourself a fair chance of clearing the maximum $100. For every raked dollar you will be awarded 1 Summit Point (SP) which in turn translates to $0.07. Earn 1,428 SPs in order to release the full $100 which makes this bonus relatively easy to clear if you play $1/2 NL or $3/6 or above. You can also clear this bonus playing tournaments, 8 SPs are awarded for every dollar you pay in fees.

Sadly, Everest Poker's support is dung! Did you recieve an answer to your email/help form? If you did and it was of any use consider yourself lucky. Many questions are ignored or answered incorrectly which is a shame because I believe hiring just one or two more staff members could fix this situation.

Banking

Fund your poker account using Neteller. Moneybookers, VISA, MasterCard/EurpCard, Click2Pay, paysafecard or iPS (Chinese debit cards). Cashouts to Neteller and Moneybookers are fast, within one business day. Withdrawals to VISA take the standard 5-7 working days.

Conclusion

Everest Poker has a great selection of Hold'em cash games, a good number of MTTs satellites/feeders and very fast e-wallet cashouts. If you can avoid needing help from support, this isn't a bad place to play online poker.
