Everest Poker is one of the biggest names in online poker with one of the largest player pools in Europe. This is helped by it having been Europe’s first multilingual online poker site, fully-translated into 15 languages. As well as winning a host of awards including Poker Operator of the Year in 2007 and 2008, Everest Poker also have British hotshot Sam Trickett on their books as an ambassador.
Games and Tournaments
Unlike most poker sites who like to cover as many bases as possible, Everest Poker appears to have dedicated itself to doing one thing and doing it well. Until recently Everest Poker was all about Texas Hold’em, but it has now begun running Omaha games as well. You can choose to play Limit, Pot Limit or No Limit in cash games (at stakes starting from $0.02/0.04), single table or multi-table tournaments. What’s more, tournament fees are less than the industry standard 10% of the buy-in, making it one of the better value platforms on the market. Everest Poker is also home to a number of new and exciting formats available such as Speed Poker and Twister Poker - a unique sit and go format where prizes are randomly generated at between twice and 1,000 times the buy-in, with the winner taking all.
Everest Poker has one of the most attractive and easy to use lobbies anywhere online with good use of colour and a stylish design. Tempting, if slightly annoying, pop-ups make sure you won’t miss out on the latest big tourneys and add to the lively feel. Stat fans will also like the progress bars at the bottom of the page, which keep you up-to-date on your VIP status as well as letting you know how many hands you have played in that particular session.
Getting down to the action, the tables do look a bit dated compared to some rival sites and the avatars are strangely menacing too, although that doesn’t have any bearing on the gameplay which is smooth and functional.
Features and Functions
Everest Poker's software is fast and functional with a number of useful features available to players such as hand histories and player notes. Action buttons are easy to use, but not necessarily where you might expect them to be, so give a free table some of your time before putting any money down. A red/yellow/green time bar appears under each player when it is their turn to act in order to keep the game moving. A settings menu at the top right of the game screen gives you the option to customise almost every aspect of your viewing and audio experience, so you can create an environment that works for you.
Everest Poker is home to a large proportion of loose players, with viewed-flop percentages often extending into the 60s. This trend continues right up to the highest stakes, making it a potentially profitable environment for the more savvy players out there. The international diversity on the site allows for a huge variety of playing styles and certainly adds to the interest.
New players to Everest are rewarded handsomely with a free €10 to use in real money games as well as a 200% bonus on your first deposit. You will also receive entry to a choice of weekly €2,000 freerolls, giving you the chance to start your Everest Poker experience in winning fashion. Perhaps the biggest attraction to Everest Poker however, is the incredible iPoker iPOPS event, an annual series of tournaments with €1,000,000 in guaranteed prizes. This is a promotion to rival any in the world and usually takes place every October.
Loose competition and excellent value tournaments make Everest Poker an excellent choice for players old and new. Quirky features such as Twister Poker should keep you entertained and you will be hard pushed to find a better promotion than the iPoker iPOPS series anywhere on the web.
