With over 1200 betting shops in the UK, along with their online casino and sportsbook, Coral have a long established reputation of honesty and integrity. So how does their Coral Poker offering measure up?
Games and Tournaments
There is a good variety of games on offer at Coral Poker including Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, Seven Card Stud, Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo and Five Card Draw. You can choose to participate in a ring game, sit and go or multi-table tournament. There are also free rolls, satellite events and re-buy tournaments on offer. Cash games range from 1c/2c up to $300/$600 and Sit N Go buy-ins can range from micro-stakes up to $5,000 for serious players.
Coral Poker’s theme and colour scheme remains consistent with its betting site, rivalling just about anyone else in the industry without being too flashy. There is nothing to get excited about on the lobby pages but once you reach the tables the site comes into its own.
Players are represented on screen by static avatars, which attempt to create the feel of a real live game. It may not be to everyone's taste but the graphics are high quality and there are 75 characters to choose from which ensures a degree of variety at the table.
The player interface is very easy to use and, as an added bonus, you can make notes about a player for future reference by clicking on their avatar, a very useful tool when multi-tabling.
Functionality and Features
Coral Poker runs on the popular iPoker network, meaning the software is fast, stable and reliable. A useful multi-table cascade option shows up to 16 tables, neatly arranged on a single screen.
The iPoker network also guarantees a strong and steady flow of traffic to the site, with an average pool of over 8,000 daily players. This ensures you won’t spend ages waiting in the lobby for tournament tables to fill up, maximising your poker experience.
An instant play function may go unused by many but could turn out to be a useful tool if you ever need to log on from a different laptop or device which doesn’t have the software already installed. There is also a fairly comprehensive and entertaining Poker School for beginners, intermediates and advanced players which features video demonstrations and plenty of interaction. In this respect Coral wipes the floor with many of its rival sites and makes sure that you head to the tables fully versed in the art of poker.
Away from poker, Coral have pretty much every corner of the gambling market covered and allows you to switch between sports betting, live casino, slots, bingo and poker all through the same account, saving time and avoiding hassle.
Coral Poker is without doubt one of the best online poker sites on the market with top quality features and a good level of competition. It also offers fantastic bonuses worth up to £1,200 for new players including £20 worth of tournament tokens when you deposit £5 or more. What’s not to like?
