$500 Absolute Poker Bonus
AbsolutePoker or AP Poker is a well known and fully licensed poker room by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission. They are known for attracting bonus hunters especially with their substantial first deposit bonus but lately players have been attracted to the bad beat progressive jackpot in the real money games. This newly added feature has been won a fairly regular basis awarding players a jackpot that can easily go over $300,000. Absolute Poker offers tuition packages for college and university students, guaranteed payment tournaments and has their own line up of signature tournament packages. AbsolutePoker.com accepts US players and is now available in a no download format. Players can still download the software as normal though. Absolute Poker recently went through a major security breach that was performed by an employee not a hacker. This of course caused a lot of bad publicity but at the same token this made Absolute Poker take the steps necessary to increase the level of security at this site. Players can be rest assured that AP is constantly on high alert to make sure nothing like this will ever happen again.
Absolute Poker Bonus
The AbsolutePoker bonus is a 100% match up to $500. Players find this is one of the easier bonuses to clear and you can expect it to be released in increments of $10 with the bonus cleared at a rate of 4 comp points for every $1 in bonus awarded. You can expect AP to offer you frequent re-load offers and one of their stronger features is the VIP player rewards program which features an extensive list of benefits from added bonuses, free cash offers, tournament entry tickets and of course the ability to collect comp points at a faster rate.

The competition in this room fluctuates. The micro and low limit tables can provide a significant amount of loose players and beginners but you can expect a lot of bonus hunters looking to clear their bonuses. These players will play a tight game and you can usually recognize this when watching lobby stats or viewing the table. Once you go beyond these low limit levels you will find the games are about average for any poker room of this size.
Absolute Poker Ring Games
Ring games are very popular at AP with some great games ranging from low limit tables to those active enough for the high-roller. Your game variety varies from Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Stud Card, 7 Stud Card Hi/Lo with stakes ranging from micro to $75/$150. The room is predominantly fixed on Texas Holdem but you can still find an active amount of players at the other variations during peak hours.
AbsolutePoker.com provides huge weekend guaranteed tournaments that are scheduled every Friday, Saturday and Sunday with a prize pool consisting of over $325,000. The room supports a variety of Sit N Go’s and multi-table tournaments with each game available in Texas Hold’em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo. Your buy-ins will range from a $1 to a couple hundred and can also find some exclusive offers from AP, like the Absolute Poker Dream Package. Players can enter through satellites, qualifiers and even freerolls. The games offered at Absolute are well structured although you may have to wait for a SNG to fill during off peak hours.
Absolute Poker (AP) Software
The Absolute Poker software is fully functional and always up to par as far as speed and stability is concerned. What I do like is the lobby is not cluttered with a lot of useless features, so it is always easy to read and navigate. Each of the games is categorized into tabs for you, and you will notice the lobby highlights the various ring games – regular games and bad beat jackpot tables. Your bad beat jackpot is displayed in real time located at the left in the lobby. Your lobby statistics are basic including average stack size, pre-flop percentage and hands per hour. There is an in lobby filter option which allows you to choose the amount of players, table speed and stakes.
One really nice feature they just added is the player’s ability to select which table view they prefer. Once you click on any table you will receive a pop up with three options – a top view table which displays the table with basic avatar buttons, quarter view which is a full table view and the classic table. Absolute Poker graphics have gone under a long awaited update and improved greatly. The only nuisance is the avatars appear too large in table views. Other supported features include; an instant replay feature as well as the ability to play Blackjack while sitting at the tables. Overall the upgrade in the software is a big improvement however the features are still your basic.
