Although online poker is available to players in countries across the world, it can be hard to access the best online opportunities if you are longing in from the wrong area. Does IronPoker.com have the answers?
Eligibility problems for players from specific places have been on the rise in the last few years as countries crack down and solidify the legal requirements and restrictions on internet poker within their borders. To help alleviate some of these problems, Playtech, creators of the iPoker Network have just opened IronPoker.com and IronPoker.com/de/ to provide high quality gaming to Canada, Australia, and Germany.
Iron Poker looks to be a fantastic new site for players and one that will hold up well to the current iPoker standard. Simply being part of the iPoker network comes with a healthy pie of benefits. First and foremost, the new site will allow players to connect to thousands of other players on the network so that tables fill up quickly and efficiently. Moreover, players on Iron Poker can expect the same great service, functionality, and ease of access that has already been established by Playtech’s other websites as the new site uses the same well trusted platform.
Iron Poker also hopes to offer one of the best selections of games available online. In addition to a dizzying array of card, slot, and spinner games, Iron Poker also offers a new Sit’n’Go Tournament. This type of tourney, a response to Poker Stars’ Spin N Go tournament, is climbing the ladder of popularity at an alarming rate, and with good reason. Being able to win €10,000 from a €10 buy in is a huge incentive to play, and the randomness of the prize spinner adds an extra level of chance and fun.Of course, the Sit’n’Go style also assures that tables fill up and begin as soon as possible, so players can play more and wait less.
Currently, Iron Poker is offering a pretty tempting deal for first time sign ups. According to their Welcome Package page, new players can receive a 200% bonus on their initial investment, up to €1,500. Moreover, they offer a host of free big money gambles like extra entry tokens for the $2,500 Freeroll tournaments, the $10,000 Monthly Bonanza, and the 100k September Boost. It may sound too good to be true, but with a group as big as Playtech backing the website, it is quite reasonable to think that they would pull out all of the stops for their newest poker portal.
Personally, I think it is great that Playtech is opening better iPoker options for countries like Canada, Australia, and Germany. All three are, economically speaking, doing well enough to have a population with cash to spend and skill to exercise. I would expect a healthy influx of players from all three. The more players join, the more Playtech is able to spend providing new games, faster tables, and improved servers. To my eye, it looks like a win all around.
