PokerHost Review

PokerHost is a journeyman online poker room.  It is currently on the Winning Poker Network.  It launched on Dobrosoft in 2004.  It eventually moved to Microgaming, then to Cake, next Merge Gaming, before it reached to the Equity Poker Network.  That is where it is today. Some of its moves were forced, for example Merge Gaming pushed all of its skins out of the network.  Others were voluntary while the site looked for U.S. friendly networks.  SBG Global is the parent company of PokerHost. A Personal Opinion of PokerHost What I like about PokerHost – The games at PokerHost are above average.  The first deposit bonus clears at a decent rate.  There are unlimited reload bonuses. Its player rewards and tournament schedule are perks.  PokerHost pays players quickly. What I don’t like about PokerHost – The traffic at PokerHost is below average.  Players looking for limits higher than $ .50/$
