Venture 1 - Paradise Poker

Bonus - 25% bonus up to $50

Cash out - very reasonable restrictions - 100 raked hands per $10 of bonus (500 raked hands total). Met this in 2 days play. Only time restriction was 48 hours from cash-in.

Cashier/Support - helpful and responsive. Cashed out to Neteller on request, even though I cashed in on a credit card.

Software - very good. Easy to use, good stats and visually easy on the eye. I didn't experience any disconnections or server failures while there.

Games - seemed to be a very good selection of games and tournies. Most levels seemed to have players. I don't play Omaha or Stud, but there seemed to be lively games going.

Experience - had the worst run of luck so my view was jaundiced. Within 2 hours I was down $60 without doing anything especially stupid. Managed to grab some of it back in the end. Players are definitely tougher than Absolute.

Overall - not for me, but if they offer a reload bonus, I'll be there.

Cumulative Totals
Starting Cash $200
Site Bonus $50 $250
Playing Profit/Loss -$8 $242

So overall the experience earned me $42 in two days from a $200 stake, and taught me that the games at Absolute are nice and soft.

Keep your eyes peeled for Planet Poker : coming soon.

Ashbash the Bonus Whore.
