It looks like the site is back in black after facing technical issues for a long time.
Member of the Winning Poker Network(WPN) has been a long-time partner of ours. We've been running exclusive promotions with extra rakeback for our players at the site for years now. This and the presence of US players make PokerKing a great option for the grinders.
However, back in May, the site operator a big overhaul, launching a new client which meets the expectations of our age. This is usually a pretty big challenge, but it worked out even worse than expected.
Since May, PokerKing wasn't able to provide us with data of our players' rake amount, and therefore we were unable to determine what prizes to reward our players with.
Affiliates also haven't received any commission for several months, and we - and our players - were left without any concrete date to rely on.
In the past few weeks, however, some promising progress happened. PokerKing sent us the rake data for our cash game players, and we'll be able to reward our players with rake chase prizes during the first two weeks of October!
According to our information, our players will receive rakeback from the site in the next few weeks retroactively!
Taking a look at the cash game lobby this afternoon (3:00 PM CET, September 24th) we had another surprise. The high-stakes action at PokerKing seems to be overwhelming, with 9 $25/$50 (NL5000) cash games running at the same time.
Those who are familiar with the cash game economy know very well, that this is rarely seen even in the GGNetwork or partypoker, which both have much bigger player traffic than PokerKing usually does.
It's unclear whether these tables were (and still are) running because of a high-stakes fish, but it's safe to say, PokerKing - and the US players on the site - offer great action for the cash game grinders, even on the higher stakes.
Rakerace.com offer for PokerKing players:
- $777 First Deposit Bonus - up to 40% VIP cashback - Exclusive Chase with 8-13% extra rakeback
The small- and the mid-stakes offering is also outstanding. During peak times, there are plenty of tables running on each stake. See the details below:
