Titan Poker Review 2013

Titan Poker was created in Canada in 2005 and is part of the ever-growing iPoker network. PlayTech developed this platform, which is the world’s largest casino software provider. Titan Poker has more traffic on the iPoker network than any other poker room. For the most part it operates in European countries, with a lot of the players based in and around Europe, the United Kingdom, and Canada. It is one of many online poker rooms that does not allow U.S. wagering. Although this initially affected the traffic, the popularity of this poker room has brought it back to the forefront.

Traffic and Competition

At peak hours the traffic shows around 5,000 real-money players between tournaments and cash games. Just like almost all online poker rooms, competition gets stiffer as the stakes get higher. As a whole, Titan poker has about average competition.

Bonuses, Promotions and VIP Rewards

Titan Poker currently has a 200% signup bonus up to $2000 for first time real-money depositing players. This bonus is instantly redeemed and is claimed by playing in any ring games and tournaments at Titan Poker. Besides the sign-up bonus, there are numerous rewards for new players including free entry into freerolls with $10k up for grabs.

Titan Poker also has an impressive VIP Club program that awards players with rewards. Benefits of the VIP Club include faster points accumulation, more frequent cash-outs of points, exclusive VIP Players Freeroll tournaments, special Reload Bonuses and Cash Bonuses. Players start at the Bronze Level and can progress to higher VIP levels by earning Titan Poker Points. The top online players can try for the Titanium and Diamond VIP Level, which awards players entry into the $5000 Gladiators Race.

Software and Graphics

The software previously had minor bugs in the software but these minor problems have since been fixed. The software size is around 30MB. As any player who has played at Titan Poker would be able to tell you, the graphical interface is appealing and easy on the eyes. The game speed is quite fast, and it should handle the games you play just fine unless you have numerous applications open at the same time. There are constant software improvements and updates, with little downtime. This iPoker software allows you to view and play four tables at the same time. An additional highlight is the ability to import a player’s ring game and tournament data to Poker Tracker.

Anonymous Tables

Anonymous tables have started running on Titan Poker and the rest of the iPoker network. It is one of the most recent additions since migrating to the 'iPoker 2' network. So instead of seeing player nicknames, locations, note options, and player avatars, it’s substituted with numbers such as Player 1, Player 2, and so on. Some players prefer playing at anonymous tables because they feel it’s the only way they can be competitive in today’s online games because there is so much information out there available on players when their opponents seek out information on them through the use of poker tracking software, tournament player trackers, and statistical analysis tools.

Games and Tournaments

There is a good selection of ring games offered at Titan Poker including Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, 7-card Stud and 5-card Stud. Betting structure includes Fixed Limit ($.02/$.04 to $300/$600), No Limit ($.01/$.02 to $100/$200) and Pot Limit ($.01/$.02 to $100/$200). Unfortunately, Titan Poker does not currently offer mixed games.

The Tournament options include Texas Hold’em, Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo. The tournament format includes Heads-Up, Single-Table and Multi-Table. Heads-up tournaments range from $1 to $1,000. Single-table tournaments (STTs) range from $1 to $200. Multi-table tournaments (MTTs) vary from $2 to $200. When it comes to MTTs, there are many online tourneys with good structures and large guarantees. The biggest weekly tournament at Titan Poker is the $200,000 guarantee that takes place every Sunday.

You will be able to find quite a few satellite events as well as smaller buy-in tournaments with guaranteed prize money. Satellites are available to major live events like the WSOP and even the Aussie Millions. There are also numerous Sit-N-Go Jackpot tournaments available. Titan Poker has some awesome Sit'n'Go jackpots. Players who win six Rio Jackpot Sit 'N' Go" tournaments in a row get to win a huge jackpot, starting at $30,000!

Customer Service

Titan Poker has great customer support and is available 24/7 for all players. They communicate via email, phone and live chat support. This poker room actually received Gambling Online Magazine's Gold Award for providing players with the Best Online Poker Customer Service for the years 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010, and 2011.
