Titan Poker came seemingly out of nowhere and became the leading poker room in the iPoker network. Titan has grown famous for shipping lots of players to big poker tournaments around the globe. They run a big online poker series of their own – the European Championship of Online Poker (ECOOP) with a guaranteed prize pool of 2.5 million dollar.
The iPoker network and the poker software are developed by PlayTech. The software has clear graphics and is easy to use, with functions like a buddy list, player notes, hand history etc. The traffic at this network dived overnight when players from the USA were excluded due to new legislation. However, they have found new markets and is now back on top. With the backing from one of the largest casino providers online a lot of casino players are brought in, which tends to make the games nice and loose. Titan Poker was voted Best Poker Customer Service in 2007 in the Gambling Online Magazine readers’ poll – a strong recommendation if any.
Aside from the aforementioned Sit-and-Go jackpots, which have attracted lots of players to the site, Titan Poker offers new and exciting promotions continuously. Satellites are available to many major events in live poker, and the site offers quite a few lucrative tournaments on their own. A sympathetic detail is that you’ll join the VIP club just by playing at Titan Poker! Hence, you’ll be able to cash in on a number of generous rewards and bonuses based on your VIP level. The generous deposit and reload bonuses at Titan are paid in increments of 10 dollars and awarded daily, a very fine feature. You have 90 days to reach the hands required to clear a bonus, a bit more than some other places. For each raked hand you earn between 1 and 18 points depending your VIP level (Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, or - of course – Titanium.)
Titan Poker is the leading poker room in the iPoker network, and the network has grown tremendously in the last years to become one of the definitive market leaders. At peak hours, iPoker regularly surpasses 9,000 logged-in real-money players (March 2010)! Tournament traffic is massive, thanks to the many ongoing promotions and the Sit-and-Go jackpots. Cash games have a considerable amount of traffic, at least up to medium stakes. There are typically lots of games to choose from at any hour. At peak hours games of all kinds abound. Without the Americans, peak hours tend to take place during European evening time, that is, around noon PT.
Software & Graphics
The software will be recognized instantly by many players, as Titan Poker is part of the iPoker network and shares its software with a number of other sites in the same network. It has very good overall functionality; a clean interface, an easily navigated lobby and game play that's very easy to get used to. The tables have all of the basic functions as well as a few additional features, such as the possibility to play several tables at once in a tiled mini view. Players are given plenty of time to make up their mind about a move. This is nice in a way, but it makes the games move pretty slowly at times. Although not as slow as PKR. Also, with the ability to play at eight simultaneous tables, you can still have a lot of action here. You can take notes on your opponents and access statistics right at the table. In the poker lobby there are crucial statistics about the active tables, such as average pot size, viewed-flop percentage and hands per hour. Thanks to a really clever feature, you can replay your hand histories instantly and you don’t have to try to read them in plain text anymore. Proving its commitment to be a global provider, Titan Poker distributes its poker software in eleven languages (at this writing): English, French, German, Spanish, Polish, Swedish, Norwegian, Finnish, Danish, Dutch and Italian.
If you're looking to play some of the more obscure poker variations, you won't find them at Titan Poker, but if you prefer the popular variants you’ll have options aplenty. Titan Poker offers all forms of Texas Holdem at all levels as well as fixed limit and pot-limit Omaha, 7-Card Stud and also 5-Card Stud. Some of the most popular games at the site are the various jackpot Sit-and-Gos: Fort Knox, Rio, Maui and Dirty Dozen. Win a number of consecutive tournaments and you'll score a huge jackpot – on top of the tournament winnings. A whole range of guaranteed prize pool multi-table tournaments are scheduled on a daily or weekly basis – another great opportunity of making good money with moderate investments.
