Poker Rewards is part of the Prima Poker network also known as Microgaming. Prima run the poker rooms for a lot of online casinos, and combine into a fairly large large poker site, even if they aren't actually one site. I haven't played here, basically because the bonus isn't attractive enough.

Players are surprisingly tough for a casino-linked poker site, I'm not sure why or how, but there it is. They're still a fairly typical bunch of online players, but you have been warned not to expect to run all over these games just because it's a casino's poker site. There are enough players so there's never a problem finding a decent game (although a surprising amount of the action is No Limit - I think it's because of the casino influence).

Prima's software is nice. It runs very smoothly, and is well laid out. I like the huge chat box - it is the height of the window, so has plenty of space for a full hand history and a conversation - in different colours, so it's easy to keep track of what has been said. The buttons are in fairly logical places (although the middle one changes from "check" to "call" rather quickly, so pay attention if you're not using the auto-action check boxes but want to play fast)

I think the email support staff work for Prima, rather than the individual casinos, because they understand poker, and poker players. They aren't the fastest support team out there, but they do give relevant answers, so that's the important thing, usually.

Poker Rewards claims to pay out more than $1 million in tournaments every month. There are also a lot more guaranteed tournaments than I'd expect a casino's poker room to run, and a lot more players entering them.

Poker Rewards is nothing incredible, but if the bonus situation is a little dry, it would be worth hitting them up for some rake-free play.

Deposit Bonus Information:   (Updated: 08/01/2012)
The terms and conditions say that you need to generate $50 in rake to clear $50 in bonus. Basically, this deal would allow you to play rake-free for a while (depending on what limits you play and how wild the games are). That's decent, but nothing to get too excited about.

Whenever you invite others to join and play you have the opportunity to add chips and money into your account. If your friends decide to join you will have cash deposited into your account by the management.
