SITE MEMBERSHIP

Royal Vegas poker is one of the newer best poker rooms. However, it is also one of the fastest growing. The site has a large membership base, no doubt due to their heavy promotions and well know brand name, through Royal Vegas Casino. The site does about 50,000 thousand in rake a day and has about 400-500 players.

GAME PLAY

Game play here is pretty good. I am a strong believer that sites that have a casino as a back, such as Royal Vegas, attract a number of poor players that are addicted gamblers initially. Seasoned poker players have no troubles beating these players. However, the trend has been for the sites to become a lot tighter, over time, as the fish gradually dry up. However, Royal Vegas Poker is in the early stages so all is good for now.

SOFTWARE

Royal Vegas utilises the Prima Poker software, which is powered by a Microprogaming system, which is a common poker interfaced used at many sites. The software is smooth and reliable. The download is about 7 mb. The software is well known and well tested and runs smoothy.
