Reefer Poker Review

Reefer Poker is a member of the Merge Gaming Network, a relatively new online poker network. It does not have that much to offer in the way of areas like traffic and really heavy duty promotional offers, but by the same token there are also some great areas of potential within this online poker operation that make it one to look at. With a head office in Australia and a license granted by the Canadian Kahnawake Gaming Commission, one can definitely look fondly into the future where this site is concerned.

Cash Game Choice – (10/10)

Like the other members of the Merge Gaming Network, Reefer Poker offers some excellent choice when it comes to the online cash game. In addition to the regular Hold ‘Em, Omaha and Seven Card Stud variants that everyone offers in the world of online cash game poker, you can expect the following games to be available from Reefer Poker:

5 Card Draw
5 Card Stud
Badugi
Mixed Hold ‘Em and Omaha
HORSE
HOSE
Razz
2-7 Triple Draw
A-5 Triple Draw

For reasons stated in the next section however, most of these variants are available, but not populated frequently.

 

Cash Game Traffic – (6.0/10)

The cash game traffic that Reefer Poker receives is a function of the cash game traffic received by the Merge Gaming Network. In this particular area, Reefer Poker is not particularly impressive. They can currently expect to receive around 500 players on an average day. Out of these 500 players, nearly 450 will on average be interested in playing one of the Hold ‘Em variants. The other 50 will be interested in playing one of the Omaha variants. In essence, all of the other games are extremely hit or miss on Reefer Poker. Despite the impressive amount of choice that they boast, Reefer Poker currently does not really have the traffic numbers to practically back up those choices.

 

Cash Game Competition – (7.0/10)

There are two elements to the cash game competition when you consider Reefer Poker. They are able to receive the people that don’t like playing on larger websites because of the competition at the lower levels on those websites. For this reason, you’ll find that at the lower levels there is some soft competition available that you can take advantage of. On the higher levels however, there are many sharks present that just love juicy sites like new ones that have many inexperienced players. For this reason, you shouldn’t venture into the higher levels on Reefer Poker unless you are really prepared to encounter what awaits you there.

 

Rake Costs – (8.0/10)

Reefer Poker does indeed offer competitive rake plans, something that makes them look very good indeed. You’ll never have to pay more than $3.00 in a hand on Reefer Poker and in many of the lower limit games you’ll never have to pay more than $1.00 in rake. This is a far cry from some of the other online poker sites and for that reason Reefer Poker does indeed deserve some praise for having this particular rake structure at this particular time.

 

Support Options – (8.0/10)

There are three methods of support available through Reefer Poker. The first is an extensive FAQ document that will allow you to self-correct any problems that might come along. Make sure that you check it first as you can save a lot of time by simply following the instructions that it contains for your particular problem.

If the FAQ document fails you, you have two choices for pursuing this matter further. E-mail support is available at support@reeferpoker.com and there is also live chat support available through the software’s lobby. Both of these are excellent options for further support.

Financial Security – (9.0/10)

Thawte is responsible for handling all of the financial transactions that happen on Reefer Poker. They are responsible for the entire Merge Gaming Network. With no major incidents reported to date, one can feel as secure about the online finances at Reefer Poker as is possible for one to feel.

 

Deposit and Withdrawal Choices – (8.0/10)

The following payment options are available for deposit:

Click2Pay
ECO Card

Overall – (8.0/10)

Reefer Poker, like the other sites in the Merge Gaming Network, has a lot of potential. If it can get its traffic numbers to respectable levels, it could very easily be one of the better sites within the online poker world.
