Sun PokerPart of the "Sands of the Caribbean" online casino group, Sun Poker is a relatively new poker room but coming from such a reputable online casino (and, as with all sites on our Editor’s Picks list) you can be sure they are legitimate. The site has some nice features which distinguish it from some other poker rooms and they have plenty of games from which to choose. Run by the folks at Peak Entertainment, big promotions and quality gameplay are pretty much the norm here.
As we said, the game execution at Sun Poker is solid and the Cryptologic software reliable and easy-to-navigate. The software is also simple to understand and use and pros and beginners alike will appreciate the features. The graphics and the tables are nice and games move very quickly, which is good for those of you who like to play a lot of hands. A straightforward lobby ensures that you should have no trouble finding just the game you’re looking for.
In terms of traffic, you get wide variety of players playing at Sun Poker. Because they are linked to a casino, you get plenty of loose players but you’ll also run into some solid players playing higher limits. All the promotions on offer are bound to keep new players rolling in and the games should get better as time passes.
Speaking of promotions, this is an area where Sun Poker REALLY does well and distinguishes itself from other poker rooms. They have a wide variety of bonuses, lucrative and exclusive freerolls, and seasonal offers all of which the site aptly describes as "SICK". Deposit bonuses are very good and the more poker points you acquire, the greater opportunity you have to cash in for some free cash. All in all, it’s pretty touch to beat Sun Poker in this department.
As far as other categories go, Caribbean Sun offers a 24-hour customer service and they will respond to any email within the same day. They currently don't have table stats but they do log your time at the tables and can provide detailed statistics of how you are playing. They have some of the safest software on the net and you can be guaranteed fair play and value for your money. Overall, Sun Poker is an above-average site with few negatives - the rake could be better, and the software, while solid, isn’t as interactive as sites such as Titan Poker running a different platform. Such nitpicking aside, we certainly encourage you to give Sun Poker a chance and can’t imagine that you’ll be disappointed.
