What do you mean you’ve never heard of it? Oh, alright, fair enough, it’s a little out-of-the-way. However, this obscure corner of the internet hides an OnGame/PokerRoom skin that is seriously +EV.
Conclusion: Great bonuses and fish a’plenty mean you should definitely consider RedKings when looking to move sites.
Well, you can’t have it all. The software is the big let-down of RedKings as it’s sometimes slow, always ugly and often awkward. For some ridiculous reason if you have money in the pot on a round of betting and want to raise when the action comes back to you, it adds in the previous bet to what you type – i.e. if you raise to $3.50 under the gun and the small blind makes it $11, you typing in ‘$25’ will lead to you making a $28.50 bet. Little, silly things like that can tilt you hard.
Conclusion: The worst aspect of the site and something they need to improve if they want to seriously compete in the online poker industry.
Not as bad as you’d expect for such a little-known site. They regularly have full tables at the micro- and mid-stakes, and even some serious action at $5/$10 and $10/$20. There are insane reload bonuses equating to 66% rakeback which is probably why the bigger games are so big – even a break-even player can profit with that arrangement.
Conclusion: No problem finding a game, and every single table will be chocked full of fish.
Donks or Not?
Is the Pope a practising religious man of the Roman Catholic Church? Do bears defecate in floral areas? The answer is a resounding and incredible yes. There are so many fish on this site you’ll think you’ve had an acid trip and walked into the aquarium. This is what makes it worthwhile playing – stupidly good bonuses and more fish than you can shake a stick at.
Conclusion: It should definitely be worth considering when deciding where to play. The poor software is made up for by excellent bonuses, support and lots of fish.
