Cool Hand Poker is one of the newest
Microgaming sites in online poker.
Even though it hasn’t been around
that long, the no pressure approach
to poker that it advocates has made
it popular with the key new poker
Software and Graphics
As previously mentioned, Cool Hand Poker
is a member of the Microgaming Network (also
sometimes known as the Prima Poker
Network) and because of that it uses the
same software package that all
Microgaming sites use. This is an older
software package and that is easy to see
with the older graphics that it has.
Recent patches have made the overall
graphical user interface much better and
this software has also caught up to
competitors in the area of resource
efficiency. It’s not the best software
out there, but it is good enough to get
the job done.
There are five major variants offered
at Cool Hand Poker and they represent
Texas Hold ‘Em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo,
Seven Card Stud and Seven Card Stud
Hi/Lo. This is the standard offering for
any online poker website and it is
likely what you will find online on the
Microgaming Network on any given day.
Texas Hold ‘Em is generally reliable
around the clock while the other
variants in cash game and tournament
formats are really only populated during
the peak periods of the day.
Bonuses and Promotions
Cool Hand Poker is for people that
want to play poker for their own
entertainment and not necessarily for
people that are looking to turn pro. As
a result, they offer an online poker
bonus that is worth 100% up to $350.
This is a very good bonus for someone
that is just looking to entertain
themselves at online poker because it is
a bonus that is easy to clear and will
add a significant amount to the bankroll
of a casual online poker player.
Microgaming is not a US-friendly
online poker network and that means that
US players cannot enjoy the facilities
that Cool Hand Poker has to offer.

Cool Hand Poker is an interesting

well this site will do in the future, it
does seem to be doing well enough right
