Lotos Poker review
Lotos Poker is one of the largest brands of Russian poker market, which has operated in 888 Network before November 2016. The 1st of November, the room moved to the Asian network GG-Network, which, according to modern standards, has resulted in unique balance: the Asian market experiencing a poker boom, combined with a trusted brand focused primarily on Russia and Europe that organized not only access to a weak game but systems of deposit/withdrawal familiar to our players. In addition, now GG-Network has such level of confidence that it can be safely attributed to the highest category or close to it.
Peak of traffic in the updated Lotos Poker falls on evening by the Asian time (day or evening by the European time). Games are played only in USD.
In peak hours 3-4 tables are played at NL1k (maximum limit in the network), 6-8 tables at NL400-NL600, more than a dozen tables at NL100 and NL200, as well as 15 or more tables at NL50 and lower.
PLO-traffic will absolutely appreciate our regulars: every day you will find a game at PLO1k and PLO400-600. At the lower limits, of course, more tables are played, up to 5-6 per limit.
In addition, there are cash table for particularly desperate players - All-in or Fold, where buy-in is only 8 bb, and the maximum limit is NL1k. There is a private variety of spin-n-go, called Fortune spin, with buy-in of up to $15.
There is no heads-up cash at all. MTT are interesting with their regular events with guarantees of $2000- $5000 and buy-ins of $10- $50. In addition, due to a major upgrade, room promises to provide more new tournaments and promotions for MTT players.
New Lotos Poker has quite simple software, Europeans would consider it as demanding and unusual. However, it is available not only in English, but also Russian, which makes it easy to understand few settings.
Software of GG-Network is quite enough for comfortable gameplay; there were no disconnections and other technical problems in the room.
Holdem Manager, Poker Tracker and any other supporting software are forbidden by rules of the network. For non-compliance the network can ban players with confiscation of their assets.
Lotos Poker brought to the GG Network what it lacked - the ability to make deposit/withdrawal using ways that are the most convenient for our players. VISA, Skrill, Neteller and other e-wallets are available. Lotus which is oriented to the Russian market is gradually adding more and more methods that are convenient for the Russian players.
Processing of withdrawals takes less time; now cash out rarely takes longer than three business days. Having moved to GG, Lotos received an opportunity to engage in banking by itself, which means scrupulous approach to the organization of these processes and, hopefully, no complaints from the players.
GGNetwork hosts the weakest games available online. In such a quintessence, with plenty of good games, convenient cashier and a high level of rakeback it is a musthave room for players of both - Omaha and Holdem.
