History

Everest Poker has come a long way from its beginning, growing from a niche European site to the 6th largest room in the world, with over 35,000 connected players at peak times. It is now the fastest growing poker room in the world. The Everest Poker software is available in 15 languages (English, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Norwegian, Dutch, Danish, Swedish, Spanish, Polish, Hungarian, Greek and Japanese).

In 2008, Everest Poker was awarded “Poker Operator of the Year” for the second consecutive year at the eGaming Rewards. Everest Poker furthered their influence on the poker world in the summer of 2008 with the announcement of a multi-year deal as the official sponsor of the World Series of Poker.

Games Offered

Everest are programmed for Texas Holdem, Omaha Hi and Omaha Hi/Lo but do not yet have the critical mass for Omaha games. The structure of Texas Holdem games is excellent due to the low blind No-Limit tables offered (as low as 5c/10c). This provides plenty of opportunity to practice No-Limit in a comparatively inexpensive environment and is a well thought out natural follow-on to the free automated training offered. Play at this level is much more lively than the blinds suggest (pots averaging $7-$10) and competition tends to be generally soft.

At the high stakes end the blinds are still only $1/$2 and yet pots in the hundreds of dollars are the norm. Interestingly, it is our opinion that Europeans play a more aggressive game than their American counterparts - we witnessed a higher level of bluffing here than at the same level in the large rooms.

Tournaments

Everest offer a range of tournament options but are limited by a lack of critical mass. They do receive credit however for offering low entry level tournaments which again would appeal to new players and offer free entry games with a tiny prize pool. One on one tournaments are offered and give you the best low value heads up experience against a stranger that you will find anywhere. Blinds rise every 8 minutes rather than the standard 10 hands so the play is much more likely to be forced by skill rather than time.

Rewards & Promotions

Everest Poker unveiled their new, state-of-the-art, VIP Summit Club in October 2008, which offers players benefits such as up to 750% Bonus Summit Points, the ability to convert points to Cash, Priority Customer Service, Live Tournament Registration Assistance and more. Players simply need to enroll in the program (which is free) to take advantage of the benefits.

Everest Poker also offers a wealth of promotions to new players. Players who make a deposit within one week of registration get a token to participate in a $1,000 New Depositor’s Freeroll, which runs twice a week. In addition, Everest offers a $50 Refer a Friend Bonus to all players who bring their friends to the tables.

Software

This is state of the art 3D at the table play rather than a top down overview. We like the functionality offered in terms of instant and comprehensive hand analysis broken down by the times you checked, check raised, won etc at each of the Flop, Turn and River cards. Full hand histories and game histories are available for those into serious analytics. Our only fault in the software would be the call any button which players should be careful not to avoid. Most poker rooms have this feature (we believe it is an irresponsible feature) but in Everest's case it is positioned with the other action buttons (call/fold, call and raise).

Overall

A five star product, well worth a try.
