Titan Poker Review
Titan Poker has been in the industry since 2005 and although they no longer accept US players they are still one of the largest rooms online and the most popular skin on the iPoker Network. Much of this can be attributed to the company's level of support, tournaments offered and of course the bonuses and player rewards program. If you are searching for a seat to the 2008 WSOP, Titan Poker has announced they have three different packages available to be won including main event seats along with a special jackpot sit and go package worth $20,000 each. Titan Poker supports multiple languages and currencies. The poker room is licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission and tested periodically by Technical Systems Testing.
Important: Use Titan Poker Bonus Code "SELECT500" for the $500 + $25 free sign-up bonus.
This is one room which understands the importance of giving players something back for playing on site. All new players will receive a 100% match up to $500 in addition to regular reload offers. The bonus will clear in increments of $10 based on the points accumulated at any of the real money games. This is easily done at most levels so even beginners will be able to clear the bonuses here. In addition to this you will automatically be enrolled in Titan Poker's VIP player rewards program which offers each level faster point accumulation in addition to special freerolls. Other benefits of this room include; Omaha Freerolls, Bad Beat Jackpot, Best Hand Jackpot. All of the bonuses have a 60 day expiry date however they are stackable. This means that while you are clearing one bonus another will be put on hold for you until you can use it.
The competition at Titan poker is average in comparison to other poker rooms of this size. They do provide ultra micro tables for beginners where you will find plenty of careless games and a high % of players who view the flops. That being said once you reach the $3/$6 and $5/$10 levels you will find the competition becomes a lot tighter and the viewed flop percentage will go as low as 40%.
The games supported in this room include; Texas Holdem , Omaha, Omaha Hi Lo, Seven-Card Stud, Seven-Card Stud Hi Lo and 5 Card Draw. The vast majority of the players on Titan are either Omaha or Holdem players and although you will be able to find a few games in Stud during peak hours, those are consistently the top two variations in play. The stakes begin at the ultra micro levels of $0.01/$0.02 for beginners right up to $50/$100. On a typical day you should have no difficulties in finding games running at $25/$50 blinds. Titan Poker takes a 5% rake from each pot with a cap fixed at $3. Something worth mentioning is the room pro-rates the rake, meaning players who enjoy lower limits will pay significantly less rake than someone at the $5/$10 stakes.
The tournament line-up is very impressive and depending on the time of day you are online, you can even find a couple of overlays here and there. Titan Poker sends players to live events across the globe including the WPS , WSOP, EPT and they have recently started their own tournament series names the W COOP (World Championship of Online Poker) where the poker room guarantees millions in this popular series of events. The regular tournament schedule features daily freerolls, re-buys, guaranteed tournaments and plenty of satellites and qualifiers if you would rather not pay the full buy-in. Sit and Go tournaments are just as popular with most games filling up within a few minutes. By far the Jackpot Series SNG tournaments are the most popular regular featured event on this site where players can win up to $50,000 simply by winning up to six consecutive shorthanded sit and go tournaments. Even if you don't win all six you still have a shot to win some extra cash with the consolation prizes.
Titan Poker software is powered by Playtech which is one of the industry's top software developers for both casino and online poker rooms. Although they don't have any fancy features to speak of, Titan supports all the necessary functions you will need. Speed in the poker room is never an issue and the software itself updates frequently. The lobby is super easy to navigate with a drop down menu located at the side allowing you to custom select the games you want to view in the lobby. You will have access to in-lobby stats such as viewed flop percentage, hands per hour and even average chip stack along with a hand history option. This is actually one of the better ones, and it can be exported onto your hard drive. The avatars are very simple and while playing at the tables you will be able to take notes on your opponents, with each player receiving a little tag above their name.
This lets you know when you have played against that player during future games. Something I really like personally is the stats features at the tables. You will be able to view last hand played along with your own calling and folding percentages, but during a tournament you can click the stats button which provides with even more details such as tournament position, average and highest chip stack along with a few other stats. Overall, Titan Poker offers a solid platform for all players advanced and beginners.
Support is one area of the room that Titan Poker excels in and outranks everyone else. This has been proven by multiple awards the company has received over the years with the most recent being the “Best Online Poker Customer Service”, where Titan Poker won back to back in 2006 and 2007 by Gambling Online Magazine. Titan provides support through email, phone and live chat. Typical wait times span roughly 5 minutes for chat and 30 minutes to an hour for email.
Payment Deposit Methods include; VISA, MasterCard, Click2Pay, Ukash, INSTADEBIT, MoneyBookers, Bank Transfer WebMoney and ClickandBuy.
