CD Poker is one of the most popular rooms on the iPoker network, still offering relatively loose games with lots of casino players, insane sit-and-go jackpots and good high-value promotions. The iPoker network, and subsequently CD Poker, took a hit to the player base with the new U.S. online gaming restrictions last year, but both have recovered nicely and are adding players to the network daily.
For sit-and-go players in particular, CD Poker is a virtual Mecca, hosting one of the widest arrays of tournaments in the poker world, including the Limitless Jackpot promotion. CD Poker also offers a very nice integrated casino games section for players wanting a break from the poker tables.
The software has an innovative and good-looking interface, with colorful and attractive graphics. The functionality and playability are good, and early minor glitches in the software have since been fixed. Games offered include Texas Hold'em, Omaha and Seven-Card Stud Hi, Omaha Hi and Hi-Lo and ring games, as well as heads-up, sit-and-go and multi-table tournaments.
CD Poker also offers plenty of tournaments and freerolls with great value. The traffic volume overall is among the higher in the industry. Real-money player statistics as of September 2008 show 10,000 ring-game players at peak hours, and 55,000 tournament players at peak hours. CD Poker offers $500 match bonus with first deposit.
Overall, CD Poker offers relatively loose games and decent software that plays well, even though the game pace to some may be on the slow side. The software is updated frequently to ensure safety and stability, with little downtime as a result.
