True Poker Review

Current Bonus Code

100% up to $200 max ($200 deposit for max bonus).

Must play 10 qualified raked hands for each $1 in bonus money.

Hands raked less than a dollar only count as a fraction of a qualified raked hand (for example a hand raked at 0.50 will only count as 0.50 of a qualified raked hand).

Bonus is released in $10 increments and expires after 40 days.

Software – very good offers a unique real feel experience, as you have a “frog view” perspective looking over the table with a circle of players from your position and your hole cards facing down! There is a learning and adjustment curve here, but well worth it in the long run. All players, including the dealer are avatars.

There is a classic offline tell you can spot on True Poker, namely the “color check” as people pick up their cards with three cards of the same color on the board, to check if they have a flush draw. This phenomenon goes also for certain other draws.

There is a log of all bet actions, that shows who bets and calls and how much. There is also a player notes function. An interesting fact is that David Sklansky and Mason Malmuth were consulted for TruePoker to develop an anti-collusion system, with automatic flagging of suspicious activity to be review by the security team.

Playability – very good

A selection of 3-D avatars to choose from – allowing you to select a personality that best suits your playing style. Sound effects and live chat with other players – makes the game feel like you are in a real poker room. The lobby can be confusing at time but with a little effort, not too hard to get used too.

Traffic – good

There is roughly an average of 4000 unique players on the site in any given 24 period, meaning there’s always a game or a tournament to join. It’s rarely a problem to find a game at most limits during peak hours.

Support – good

Good support, with live hosts, telephone and e-mail support. Cash out speed is reasonable and most deposit and withdrawal methods are supported.

Summary – very good

True launched in May 2001 and has been propositioned as the “real deal” poker room, with high-end graphics, avatars and sound effects. With recent enhancements to the software, the speed of the games are now good, making True Poker a very good choice for players looking for great 3D-feel.
