While the days when iPoker software was the ‘ugly duckling’ have long gone… I’m sure that many readers will find the words ‘plain’, ‘functional’ or even ‘too many damn pop-up messages’ spring to mind when thinking of the Playtech powered client. So, here is my review of the new iPoker Software release in Jan 2012. Complete with screenshots, my thoughts and a extra-big deposit offer (which includes $20 free cash) for any readers who might want to check it out for themselves. I’ll use Titan Poker for my review, as this is the iPoker site I am personally most familiar with.
iPoker New Software 2012 At Titan Poker – Review
Bigger, bolder and brighter when it comes to the look of the client… the new lobby is 1000x700, as opposed to the 800x600 pixels of the old version. The different members of the iPoker Network will brand the software in their own colors. This new look words really well for Titan’s black and red, with the contrasting green ticks for highlights. At the bottom of the lobby is a promo advert space, and information on your points totals, session stats + jackpot Sit N Goes running jackpot totals. A nice big cashier button completes this lineup. The ‘big change’ for this update (well, other than the look and smoothness) is with the navigation options on the left hand side. Instead of simple text of the last version, we get big buttons which each lead to a set of options for narrowing the tables displayed. As before European and World tables are separate, with Sit & Go, Tournaments, Special Offers, Big Gtd Tournaments, BackBet Cash Tables, Fun Tables And Land Based making up the initial column of choices. Once you click your choice a ‘back’ option appears at the top of the list and your key options appear… For example, ‘World Tables’ leads to All Tables, Hold’em, Omaha, Stud, Razz and Heads-up. When you choose your game the lobby fills up with the games, and you use the buttons at the bottom to choose your betting level and stake levels.

My Favorites and Quick Seat have enjoyed an upgrade too… the functionality is the same, you narrow the field through a series of questions or simply have your favorite games all saved. Some space is given to their casino games, sports bets and side games… you can not blame them of course, they are a business, meh, I’d like to see poker more separated from these games myself. Looks like those pop up messages are still in place to welcome you to the tables… ah well!
2012 iPoker Software Upgrade – Closing Thoughts
A nice step in the right direction, I think the navigation changes tidy things up a lot – though with such a large amount of traffic you will still need the filters in addition. Graphics and smoothness are very welcome…for me this is a welcome update - though not a real game changer... what we need now is those synchronized tournament breaks and Titan will be a great place to recommend for MTTs once again. I’ll update the screenshots for my detailed 2016 Titan Poker review tomorrow – in the meantime a quick reminder of why this site come so highly recommended… the games there are the softest you will find anywhere online!
