Title:Traffic is becoming less and less1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
 
Tournaments series are ok and traffic during series also ok. Traffic is becoming less and less.
The regular tournament schedule offers almost only low buy in tournaments and almost no mid- or higher buy ins.

The rake is high in cash games and a lot of shady things going on at incognito cash games.

Worthless tournaments with much rebuy and late registration for hours. Only tournaments which was ok was revolution tournaments but they took them away a couple of days ago. So now high rake and no good tournaments. Don't play there before they take something good back.

Wina offers a lot of volume races for cash games and sng's.
But the site is full of bot's, so a normal human being has literally no chance cashing big in any race.
High rake and bad rakeback will also destroy your roll.

There are less and less players, the rake is super high, only NL and PLO, tourneys with lowerd pricepools and of course a bot problem.

Poker is fun in France.

Title:just my 2 cents12 out of 13 readers found this review helpful
 
At first all french Pokersites, Winamax included, have a big problem ; the highest rake of all Sites in the world. (rake and tax for every pot played or entry fee)
Second problem is very low rakeback.
That makes it very difficult even for good players to show a profit at the lower limits. This leads to dried up higher limit games cause nearly no one is able to climb up the ladder.
SNG’s, even hyper turbos have a rake of 10%; this is just stupid. Nearly every MTT is a reentry with unlimited rebuys and late registration of 2 h +.
Where are the good old freezouts where you have to register before the tourney starts to play it????

Winamx offers a lot of weekly races, which are nearly all volume based. That attracts a lot of masstablers and bots even at the lowest limits.
That takes completely the fun out of the games, especially for recreational players.
Instead of that useless promos offer more reload bonuses, or for SNG players a BOP like promo which Stars had.

The number of players decreases every year and therefore the incentive to play at your site. Time for you to be creative!!

High rake and tax for every pot kills your roll. Stay away.

Title:Extensive research0 out of 0 readers found this review helpful
 
I observed nlh and plo for two hours and couldn't spot but one suspect player; other than that couldn't spot a bot.

Games are looser than on average (no eastern euro players for one thing).

PLO Turn was a paired board and nlh turn was a major overcard more often than statistically expected, but didn't look as juiced as Party (lacks many air/blank cards) and WPN (fixed for suckouts in a more direct manner than just removing some air cards), although the better human feel I got of the game could mess with thing a bit, being to the direction of Juicy/Inter, although the aggro level/style is different (and juicy is up to too nitty at nlh, so it would be a scary experience to play nlh at winamax, being bettor for plo, but the rake would be barely beatable below 200 or so.

I don't know if it favours French player, as can't see the countries, but stars.fr did when I tested it and ran worse than at stars.eu (and the games were still better, and I had trouble at micro plo there and stopped playing while I was killing them at stars.eu), and this was before Amaya times.

Heads up rake is like the same 6.5% and 1.5e cap, that makes building tables impossible, meaning it isn't worth sitting at mixed games and limit games trying to get an opponent or more; even playing fuller ring is questionable. No Limit-holdem (but in mixed games).

When they join the Mediterranean pool, EU players might be kicked out, but maybe they will offer another pool with a lower rake; at least they could, and if they don't like to run it, give me a call.

The tourneys should be playable (10% juice).

I gave a 6 rating. I don't give an overall rating that high to any site currently, but my personal play-experience is another thing, but this review is for French players at least.

Title:Joueurs réguliers, passez votre chemin.103 out of 124 readers found this review helpful
 
Il impossible de battre le rake sur ce site. Un joueur de poker sérieux ne peux évidement pas espérer quoi que ce soit sur ce site.
Le chiffre clé : rake 70 % + cher en moyenne que sur n'importe quel site international.
Comme tous les sites .fr, celui n'e s'adresse quà des joueurs occasionnels qui viendront déposer quelques € grace à un battage publicitaire jamais atteint pour un site de poker.
D'ailleurs, au lancement du sité à l'été 2010, un responsable à clairement dit dans un interwieuw pour une radio, que leur site n'est pas destiné aux joueurs avertis. Je cite "on vise une clientèle de joueurs, qui, dans son immense majorité ne sait absolument pas ce qu'est un rake..."
A vous de juger.
