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, having been 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. There are no slots or sportsbooks to distract you, just poker. And even then there is a limited range of formats available. Until recently Everest Poker was all about Texas Hold’em, but it has recently 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. However, the tables do look a bit dated compared to some rival sites. Nevertheless, all the key functions are more than adequate. The cards are clear and detailed and the audio adds a little depth to the game.
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 bottom right of the lobby screen gives you access to eleven different environments, allowing you to customise your viewing experience. Other options allow you to choose whether you want to see the avatars sitting around the table, whether you want the screen to appear on top when it’s your turn to act (handy if you’re multi-tasking) or whether you want profanities filtered out of the chat window.
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.
Whilst the limited range of non-Hold'em games games may put some players off, Everest Poker impresses in just about every other department. Loose competition and excellent value tournaments make this an excellent choice for players old and new.
