Red KingsA relatively young site (est. 2006), Red Kings has burst onto the online poker scene with more than a small splash. Part of the OnGame network, this poker room features a solid software platform and fairly well-established network that can experience quite a bit of traffic. In an industry characterized by big names and rooms which pop up only to disappear, Red Kings has all the makings of quality site which looks to be around a while!
With a nice variety of games backed by fast software, a wide range of players should have no problem calling this place home. Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi-Lo and Five-Card Draw are all available and No-Limit, Pot-Limit, and Fixed-Limit games can all be found here. Full-table games, short-handed, and heads-up tables are also available limits range from $1000/$2000 in fixed limit to $0.10/$0.20. At peak hours, Red Kings has up to 6,900 ring-game players and tournaments can draw more than 30,000. For such a young site, the traffic here is pretty amazing.
Although the rake is a bit above average, the average maximum remains around $3/pot and we consider this reasonable when taking into account the variety of games on offer, the range of limits, and the strength of the software. If you're for that little something extra at Red Kings, you should find the promotions more than satisfactory. The site features deposit bonuses up to $1000 and mixes things up a bit with select 'Red Kings' bonuses and a generous refer-a-friend bonus of $50. With a nice tournament schedule and fairly heavy traffic, players could stand to walk away with a nice bit of cash at this place. Speaking of extras, it is worth noting that Red Kings also provides players cool statistical analysis of their games and an database of the hands played at the site.
Overall, we're really excited about Red Kings and so far have found it to be a classy operation with lots of options and variety that is actually surprising for such a newcomer. Support was excellent in our limited trials and safety and security are top-notch. With a nice porfolio of games, good traffic at the tables, fast software, and 16 (yes, 16) languages on offer, we think just about anyone would find something to really enjoy at this increasingly popular poker room and, accordingly, have awarded it very high marks. Check it out for yourself and see what you think!
