cards to hit the felt.
Many of the iPoker members have sportsbooks and online casinos, making the poker tables very loose and easy to win. Blackjack, Roulette, Jacks or Better, Craps, Deuces Wild and 3 Card Poker are some of the casino games offered here. The sites for iPoker share traffic with each other so having more than 1 iPoker pokerroom would be redundant.
The ring games start at $.01/.02, $.02/.04 and $.05/.10. Sit & gos start at $1 and move up slowly. There is good traffic and the competition is soft at these stakes. There is a good range of mid-high stake tournaments along with lots of low limit tournaments to choose from for iPoker players.

Freerolls and Freebies
One of the best benefits of playing on a network as large as iPoker is the numerous free-rolls everyday across all the different skins. The abundant amount of quality skins that run daily free-rolls on the iPoker networks makes playing here a great idea if your bankroll is running low and needs a quick bump on short notice. These free-rolls tend to be rather soft and easy to cash despite the large number of player as many of them are fish who give away all of their chips in the first few rounds.
iPoker's many skins allow for its ring games to be running around the clock, seven days a week, a problem many sites have had problems with since Black Friday. While action at the high stakes can be slow during non-primetime hours the low and medium stakes have a healthy player base on the tables at all times. iPoker runs all of the most popular ring games such as no limit Texas holdem, limit Holdem, Omaha as well as many other stud and draw variants, letting you play your favorite game from the comfort of your own home. The ring game tables are almost always full of new players due to the large player base and good bonus offers from the top skins.
