Not many online poker rooms have better deals for regular players than Sun Poker (www.sunpoker.com), and that is the main thing that makes this site a competitor in the online poker game. Add to that the fact that there are some fairly loose games to be had and a lot of traffic going through the site, and you have a recipe for success. There are multi-table tournaments if that is your fancy, and there are a wide range of tables for you to play, so you can play with the big money players for a while and then taper off to lower tables as you see fit.
The software is one of the lesser points as far as Sun Poker is concerned. It is not a pretty poker site to look at and everything moves quickly. Also, if you want to take notes on other players you better have a pen and pad handy because there is no note-taking software included in the Sun Poker package. On the plus side, the software while no pretty is functional. There shouldn't be any problems in that area that don?t stem from not moving quickly enough.
The bonus for first-timers is basically what you would expect from most online poker rooms: 100% bonus up to $50. It doesn't seem like much to begin with, but Sun Poker is exceptional when it comes to offering loyalty bonuses and such. $40 after 200 raked hands or $100 after 1000 raked hands is pretty nice, and not many other sites are giving bonuses like that. If you're looking for a long-term poker relationship, check out Sun Poker.
