This site is doing well; it is the largest online cryptocurrency casino in terms of traffic. There has been no indication of any impending problems at all. To back this up the player traffic is more than enough to sustain this site.
The Customer Service at this site is first class and very professional. The online floor person is ready to assist your needs 24/7. However in recent times the quality of person answering your questions has slipped a little due to the enormous amount of players coming through to empire poker.
Often it can take 10 minutes to get contact with the live floor person and emailing support is currently the better option, emails are dealt with promptly.
POKER SOFTWARE AND EXTRA FEATURES:
The software at EmpirePoker runs very smoothly and is very pleasing to the eye. Many of the features found at other sites, which were previously missing from EmpirePoker have recently been added. Examples of this are the ability to take player notes. However, the site is still missing the % pre-flop, which is a feature I like. EmpirePoker began in October 2002 and has become the fastest growing poker site.
GAME LIMITS AND RAKES:
EmpirePoker offers limits from $0.5/$1 right trough to $30/60. The rakes for various limits are presented below.
|Limit||Number of players||Pot size||Rake|
The rake at this site is pretty stock standard. The site used to offer better value for the lower limit games, but is now your standard 5 per cent capped at $3 for medium limit games. For lower limit games a max of $1 for $1/$2 games and 50 cents for $0.5/$1 games is taken out of the pot. However, this is only taken if the pot reaches $20 and $5 respectively, which is not a bad deal. For higher limit games offers pretty good value with significantly less than 5 per cent taken out of each pot.
