Expekt Poker rakeback
Expect Poker is not exactly the definition of a giant poker room with thousands upon thousands of players however its longevity speaks volumes for the overall successful nature of the operation.
Expekt Poker was founded in 1999, so it has 10 years under its belt in one of the most competitive online industries and that’s definitely a big asset. It has a healthy European player base and it is one of the pillars of the iPoker network. Because it is an iPoker room, you’ve guessed it: there is no Expekt Poker rakeback on offer.
The software Expekt Poker currently offers is the iPoker one you may have gotten used to in other rooms of the network. Graphics are OK, though a tad dated with a limited number of avatars available. The countdown timer is still slow and that means play will generally be slower than in your average online poker room. Otherwise, the package is excellent. There’s a great graphical hand history feature which makes it a cinch to track back on the hands you’ve played. Multi-tabling is also available, at 6 tables simultaneously, which should make bonus redemption easier. Due to the lack of the Expekt rakeback and the slow pace of play though, a lot of value is lost on the multi-tabling part.
The traffic Expekt poker currently gets is average. The quality of the traffic seems to be better than average though, probably due to the fact that Expekt also has an online casino and a sportsbook which both encourage gamblers to give poker a shot over at the poker room. Lower limits feature exceptionally loose play with high flops seen percentages. All it takes to make some money on such tables is some discipline, and a good rakeback deal, which Expekt poker does not currently provide. Higher limits feature tighter and more aggressive tables, which are obviously more difficult to beat.
Expekt Poker’s support is above the industry average. They offer 24/7 support via email and what’s more, you can contact their support personnel through live chat as well.
