Overview is a new poker room that is geared for lower-stakes players. I consider it one of the better sites out there for someone interested in playing no-limit games with blinds of $.25-$.50 or lower. Almost all of the games played are low-stakes games, and no-limit is currently much more popular than fixed-limit. They have many daily freerolls which would interest a lower-stakes player. Since is such a new poker room, it is currently very small and there are few games played for medium or higher stakes. Anyone interested in playing in games with stakes of $2-$4 or higher should probably look elsewhere for now.

Software's software is slightly different from most poker sites. First, their software makes it difficult to multi-table. This might actually be a good thing because poker rooms that effectively limit the number of games people can play makes the games software (read Poker Ecosystems for the reason why this is the case). The software also has a cool feature that displays the percentage chance players have of winning when they go all-in.

50% Deposit Bonus or $100. free on deposits of $200. Enter the deposit bonus "First50" in the cashier when making your initial deposit. You need to earn 150 comp points for each $1 of bonus. This bonus is paid in one lump sum when you have completed the bonus requirements for your deposit. Please note that advertises a 50% up to $200 bonus on their site. However, this is misleading because they mean the bonus is 50% of your deposit amount up to a deposit amount of $200.

Promotions's freerolls make it one of the best sites available for a micro-limit player who wants to play the occasional multi-table tournament. The prize pools of the freerolls are about the same as a typical $1, $3, or maybe even $5 buy-in multi-table tournament, which is what a micro-limit player typically plays.

20,000 Weekly Freeroll every Sunday at 14:00 EST for players that have earned at least 2000 comp points in the previous 7 days.

$4,000 Freeroll on Mondays and Wednesdays nights at 18:00 EST for players earning 1500 comp points in the previous 7 days.

$500. Daily for all first time depositors. They will give you a coupon good for 7 days from your initial deposit date.

$100. Freeroll every 3 hours for all members.

Refer A Friend bonus of $50. which is standard

With the exception of credit card deposits, has instant withdrawals for the deposit method you chose up to the amount you deposited. So if you deposit $100 via Neteller, you can withdraw up to $100 via Neteller instantly. However, for amounts greater than your deposit (i.e. winnings), withdrawals may take several days.

The competition is slightly softer than at most sites. Most of the games are played for low stakes, so you would not expect the competition to be that difficult anyway.
