I have been about in the online poker industry as a player to know when something that I read about one of the online poker sites I’m interested in is actually truth or just sales patter and it seems that there are just so many UK poker reviews out there that are looking to push players into the poker room without really offering them a clear view of what the player has in store.
I guess this is down to the huge affiliate market that is now in operation within the industry that has seen online webmasters create sites that are purely designed to usher players to the online poker room that is offering the best affiliate reward for the players that they are able to send.
The ‘Black Friday’ happenings that saw the DOJ take control of the top three online poker room domains while they were investigated over financial matters suddenly caused a huge shift in the way in which online poker affiliates were willing to push their visitors, suddenly the site that they had listed as the ninth best online poker room before the introduction of the regulations has become the number one place to play poker… Shocking but true.
So when looking about for a new online poker room, I always look to find a site that seems to have an open selection of online poker reviews, a site that has given you the insight that you need specific to each UK poker room and left you with the choice of which online poker site to play at, not passing you through a funnelling process which will ultimately result in you heading to the same online poker site that they are tipping as the best at that present time.
To break through the sales pitch you have to think about the terms used within the review, look at whether the review has been written by someone that sounds like they have played on the site and make sure that they have both good and bad things to say about each site… No online poker room has no faults! Remember that!
