Grand Poker Review
Grand Poker is the poker offering at the well established and well respected 5 Dimes Sportsbook and it's a good addition to their existing product range which on top of the poker and sportsbook also includes a great online casino, racebook, lottery and live dealer casino. You won't find massive amounts of high stakes real money Texas Hold'em at Grand Poker but if you're a recreational player who enjoys good tournament action and smaller stakes cash games then it's a decent little room to play in.
Signing Up and Downloading the Grand Poker Software
To play online poker at Grand Poker you will firstly need to sign up an account with 5 Dimes sportsbook and that's a swift and simple task. To play real money poker online you'll need to make a sportsbook deposit and then transfer the funds to your poker account, which is again, a simple and easy task. The poker download is completed within a minute and the simple set up process means that once you've chosen your screen name and password, you're good to go. The Grand Poker client is simple and well laid out with all the game information you need, and one important feature of this poker room is that the client runs perfectly on Mac and PC.
Tournaments and Cash Games
As we've mentioned, you may not get a huge amount of action at the nosebleed levels, as Grand Poker does attract the smaller player, and for smaller cash games then it's perfect as there's always enough players around to keep the tables busy.
There's a decent enough amount of guaranteed online poker tournaments too, and although you won't see the 6 figure sums offered that the larger rooms supply, for casual tournament play then it's a good schedule. You'll also find plenty of freeze out tournaments, rebuy's, sit n go tourneys and satellites into the larger monthly guarantees and of course there are plenty of freerolls available for you to get in on.
Support and Banking
Support is served up right around the clock and the friendly team may be contacted via email, live chat and toll free phone from the US on 1-800-430-5896 and they'll help you with anything from downloading the software to making your deposit. Speaking of deposits there are a number of convenient methods which will safely and quickly fund your Grand Poker account and many players will prefer to use Visa and MasterCard, although there are other options available in the cashier.
