SwC Poker new client review:

The main lobby of the new SwC poker client looks like this:

At the top of the table list, there are menu bars to choose between poker games and betting styles. Filters are located at the bottom of the lobby. Waiting lists are available.

The tables have standard designs and are comfortably for regulars. There is only one table theme available, but you can adjust the bet sizing, auto-rebuy, hot-keys.

OFC Table


NL Table


Besides Hold'em and Omaha tables, Razz, lowball are visible in the lobby. 6+ Hold'em was also introduced with a great innovation — 9-max tables are available both for cash games and tournaments.

There are no trackers support in the room yet, but the players can take notes from the opponents. The client is available in 9 different languages.


This unexpected relaunch of the veteran cryptocurrency poker rooms SwC Poker at the end of the year may have a positive impact on the players' traffic. The new software, promotions and the renewed game offer will put a known brand as SwC Poker back in the competition for leadership on this market.

And in case of another cryptocurrency boom, this room could become into the main source of new traffic and may take crypto-poker to another level.
