The Enet Poker Network used to be an Italian network, thus it would only allow Italian players to join and play. However, they have revamped and changed themselves in a good way. With their relatively new found direction, they have opened up to the rest of the world; with the exception of US players - although, they do allow US players to register, they just can't deposit unless they find or use an agent. Their headquarters are located in Curacao, in the Netherlands Antilles, and their software is developed by OpenSSL.org. Enet has a huge selection of online poker sites that they sponsor, as well as a good selection of poker games they offer. Seeing since they have recently overhauled and reinvented themselves, they are not as popular as other networks, but they are starting to become more popular.
Best Poker Rooms For USA Players
While the Enet Poker Network is indeed a quality one there are better places for US online poker players to play, namely the great US poker rooms of Bovada, Ignition Poker and Americas Cardroom, each of which welcomes real money poker players from the US, provides them with a ton of free bonus cash and serve up an unreal amount of superb cash game, sit n go and multi-table tournament action. The better US poker rooms will all provide a massive welcome bonus and many ongoing rewards such as huge reload bonuses, excellent tournament series and explosive promotions and it's now the case that each of them will also take deposits and make payouts in Bitcoin too, allowing for such easy movement of money. The immense guaranteed tournaments that these great rooms provide run into the millions of dollars and there's always a seat at the cash games tables, no matter what stake you wish to play at, and while many players will enjoy the extremely popular Texas Hold'em tables, other variants are of course available.
Enet SoftwareThe software package that Enet uses is developed and provided by OpenSSL.org. It is a relatively small software firm, which deals with all sorts of coding and software creation. The software has had some issues in the past, which are constantly being resolved once the problems are spotted. Some issues that players have had with the software include small cards, which can hardly be seen and the suits cannot be easily differentiated. There were also issues with the banking, depositing and withdrawing, which have been resolved. The software is not the prettiest or the flashiest, but it allows players to fully enjoy the competition between poker players. All in all, the software needs to be improved, and that is exactly what they are doing.
Enet Poker Websites and TrafficThe Enet Poker Network has 59 different types of online poker sites. This is a very high amount, which is only beat by other more established networks. Being that they reinvented themselves, now allowing non-Italian players to join, since late 2011, they have been steadily increasing their traffic. They have lost players due to the software and website issues, but after the problems have been fixed they have been able to gain and retain new players. They have been averaging 900-1,000 real money players. It is not exceedingly well, but it is a good start.
With their 59 poker websites that are part of the network, they have a few that stand out more than others. All of the websites have a common theme, if you want to play poker and win some money, join one of us. The one problem I see with the websites is that they are all designed to look a certain way, the same way. Most of them have a woman on the front page, with the name of the website along with a poker graphic. It is not that much of a problem, as much as it is what I consider laziness on their part. Some of the more popular sites are Uniqpoker, ProPokeRevolution, and AKPoker. Uniqpoker has a good layout; letting players immediately know what tournaments are scheduled and other information in regards to it. ProPokeRevolution and AKPoker are designed to convey a serious poker website, for serious poker players.
Enet Poker Network GamesOne detail that many have said about the Enet Poker Network is that there are a lot of soft games. A soft game basically means that there are easy to win matches, since either the opponents are inexperienced or they do not play smart. The network does offer a good variety of poker games. They offer Texas Hold'em, as well as Reverse Hold'em, along with Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo. They also have 7 Card Stud, 32 Card Draw, and even Telesina. It is a good amount of poker games that are offered, as well as a good variety, this will definetly help bring in more, and different, types of players.
The Enet Poker Network is starting fresh, and it is doing a good job of it. Growing steadily, and making changes along the way to create a better experience for their players.
