PokerRoom has finally reopened its doors to real cash poker. There has been a lot of speculation about what the site was planning. Some people thought that it might have been purely a publicity move and they were only looking to add value to the Ongame brand. Others in the poker world thought that PokerRoom was looking to reestablish themselves as one of the premier online poker sites.
PokerRoom was one of the first sites to introduce real money play. They opened their doors back in 1999. This makes them pioneers in the online poker industry. They predate such giants as PokerStars and Party. PokerRoom quickly rose in popularity and became one of the largest sites online.
When UIGA hit, PokerRoom made the decision to voluntarily withdraw from the U.S. market as a US poker room. This had a negative result in the short term. PokerRoom ended up closing a few years later due to a lack of traffic. This came as a shock to many.
When the rumors began to swirl around PokerRoom many in the poker world wondered what they were planning. The site has one of the best names in the poker industry. Anyone who played online poker pre 2006 will be familiar with the brand and its great reputation.
Now that PokerRoom has officially returned to real money play there will be a lot of players looking to try out the site. With all that has occurred in the poker scene lately, the addition of a new, respected poker site is a welcome addition. It is likely that many of the players who are looking for a new place to play will flock to PokerRoom.
PokerRoom’s new website is offering sign up bonuses and a VIP Loyalty program. They have released new software and have initiated a brand new player community. It looks as if they were waiting to get everything in order before they were ready to launch. After the recent changes at PokerStars it would not be surprising to see PokerRoom benefit. Players who are boycotting stars might choose to deposit and try out the new PokerRoom.
For poker players that want to play real money cash poker games online while playing from a Mac, there is often some frustration in finding a program that allows the player the full online playing experience without the bugs that come from the operating system.
PokerRoom was one of the first online poker websites to offer the customer the chance to play poker online from the Mac computer. Unfortunately, after ten years of operation through the years of 1999 to 2009 players were disappointed that the website was forced to shut down due to financial strain. This left players with much to be desired through the other poker websites offering superior playing experiences for PC, rather than Mac.
Now that PokerRoom is set to make a comeback, players are likely going to see the same innovations to create a friendly online poker experience for players that are downloading the software to play poker on the Mac computer, or players that are playing online through Safari.
With the return, players can set their expectations high to reveal a completely revamped playing experience that is going to bring poker on the Mac to the next level. Players can expect the innovations that were used through the previous software, including the easy to use keyboard shortcuts, a home poker game feature, and on-screen statistics to be well suited to the Mac computer, bringing PokerRoom.com back to its top ten ranking through the world of online poker.
Players can expect the return of the popular online real money games at PokerRoom to occur within the next couple of months, as there has been a buzz from the operators that the website is going to reopen, as well as the ‘under construction’ status that can be seen at the PokerRoom.com website.
