Everest Poker Software Review

Everest Poker has recently undergone major updates, which amongst other things, has made their software more poker/web 2.0 friendly. Also included in recent updates were improvements to the lobby navigations, the increase in the number of simultaneous tables which can be played to twelve and the addition of Omaha ring games and tournament tables. These upgrades all came with no loss to Everest’s identity and already high-standard graphics.

everest poker lobbyLobby: The lobby shows the percentage of players seeing the flop, hands per hour, number of players seated, wait list, table stakes and the table name of each poker game that is being played. All of this information is visible without any side-scrolling. When a game is highlighted from within the lobby, the players and their stack sizes are clearly visible on the right-side display.

A great innovative feature, from within the lobby, is Everest’s seat finder option. When used, players enter their preferred game structure, betting stake and table size. After clicking “find” players are brought to an open seat which matches their selected preferences. Also, the lobby now includes tabs and filters which players can use to showcase their preferred games and limits.

everest poker tableTable View: Everest Poker has kept their table view very simplistic, which first generation poker players love. New poker players can still appreciate the organized simplicity the software provides. There are several customizable options players can use, which include: sound effects, bring table to the front, 4 colored deck, tips, show pot, show bet amounts, chat options, notifications, table style and hand histories. Another feature is player notes which are easily accessible from the middle section of a game table.

Table views are available in four different sizes, which are: 640×480, 800×600, 1024×768 and 1280×960. These different sizes allow players to multi-table comfortably on all sizes of monitors. Players can choose from several table backgrounds which include Hawaii, kitchen, forest, all-black, and many others.

There is a built-in statistics feature which is accessible from the table view. The ‘Your Statistics’ option shows players items such as time spent playing, winning percentages, number of hands played and percentage of time which they’ve checked, called, bet, check raised, raised, re-raised, folded etc.

Cashier: The cashier is easily accessible from the software lobby. Players do not need to visit a web page to make a transaction as all banking and cashier type transactions are made within the software itself. Players are able to view their available money, in play money and balance from the cashier screen.

Banking: Everest Poker goes out of their way to provide their players with multiple ways of depositing and withdrawing from their poker site. All cash outs are handled with high professionalism without a focus on the amount. A $20 withdrawal is taken as serious as a $100,000 withdrawal. Everest Poker ensures that all transactions are handled quickly and efficiently.

Deposit Methods: NETeller, Visa, MasterCard, ECO Card, 1-Pay and Moneybookers.

Withdrawal Options: Cheque, NETeller, ECO Card, 1-Pay, and Moneybookers. Credit Cards withdrawals will vary.

Games Offered: Everest Poker offers Texas Hold’em in the No Limit, Pot Limit and Fixed Limit varieties and Pot Limit Omaha Hi (New as of 15 November 2007). Each of the games mentioned have high player volumes at most stakes. The only other game offered is Fixed Limit Omaha Hi but, this particular variation lacks player volume at all betting stakes.

Players have the ability to play with real money, summit (loyalty) points and of course play money. Games are offered in ring game, sit and go tournament and multi-table tournament varieties. In terms of the number of players per table, three different table capacities are offered which are: heads up (one versus one) tables, short handed (6 players max) and full ring (10 players max).

Games Explained: Texas Hold’em – Everyone knows how to play this game now, thanks to constant poker shows being broadcast.

Omaha – This game is extremely popular in the United Kingdom and other European countries. The game is played much like Texas Hold’em as the betting structure, flop, turn and river all work the same. The primary differences is all players start with four cards, and at showdown players must use exactly two cards from their hand and exactly three cards from the board to make the best possible 5 card poker hand.
