The Everest Poker network is owned by Ultra Internet Media, S.A. It is licensed in Kahnawake. Everest Poker’s mother company, Giga Media Ltd is listed on the NASDAQ. It is the sixth largest poker network on the Internet, despite the fact that it is made up of only one poker room, Everest Poker. Everest Poker does not accept US players to its poker room. Post-UIGEA, the Everest Poker network focused its attention on the European market. Its promotions are often region-based and the Everest Poker network software is available in 16 different languages which makes it available to more people around the world. Because of this, it is possible to find games at any time of the day or night. In general, the bonuses and promotions at Everest Poker are nothing to get excited about. They have some bonuses, but no big money opportunities and they only offer the occasional freeroll. The Everest Poker network software works quite well and is reliable, although the graphics are not exciting. It offers the standard functions, such as the ability to view statistics and multi-tabling. Unfortunately, you cannot resize tables or make use of a mini-view so multi-tabling is somewhat awkward.
Traffic on the Network
The Everest Poker network sees quite high levels of player traffic with approximately 5,000 real money players and a further 10,000 tournament players on the site every day. This places them at approximately number six in poker network size. The competition varies at Everest Poker and due to the international nature of the site players can come across many different regional poker styles. You can find plenty of loose-aggressive play with players playing lots of hands, but not really playing very well. You can find play at Everest Poker to be quite profitable if you play a decent game.
Customer Service on the Network
The Everest Poker network poker room offers customer service support in 16 different languages. This is an excellent feature as it makes the site more accessible to more people. The major drawback of their customer service support is that they are only contactable via an email form that you send through the site. This may be partly due to the difficulties in offering live or telephonic support in so many languages. They aim to reply to message queries within 24 hours and in general, the customer service personnel are helpful and send useful replies.
Games on the Network
The Everest Poker network has quite a limited variety of games, which is one of its downfalls. It only offers Texas Hold’em and Omaha games. Everest Poker game stakes range from micro stakes of $0.05/$0.10 up to approximately $5/$10. They do offer high roller play with stakes up to $500/$1,000.
