Title:Easy to Get Your Money In and Out1 out of 1 readers found this review helpful
The big advantage to playing poker at is that it is run by a conglomerate of provincial governments (BC, Manitoba & Quebec). That translates to mean that it is easy, inexpensive (i.e., free) and secure to deposit and withdraw funds. You simply make a "bill payment" to them through your bank to deposit funds into your Playnow account (no charge if "bill payments" are normally included in your banking services). Withdraws are equally simple - just ask and they will transfer whatever amount you want from your Playnow account directly into your Canadian bank account at no charge. While a credit card is required to prove that you are who you say you are, and that you are of age, there is no requirement to actually use your credit card. Hence no credit card charges, and no foreign currency charges.

I think that the reason that so many people blast their support is more because the poker client is very, very basic and the support people can't do anything to improve it. Unfortunately it is provided by a third party company, and the reality is that three provinces in Canada (with very, very few real money players) simply don't command enough attention to cause the software provider to make improvements.

But, for non-software related issues, their support is probably one of the best in the world. They are available over the phone (instantly), via online chat (instantly), and through e-mail (generally within a few hours). Who else does that?

If you are resident in one of the provinces that they operate in (BC, Manitoba & Quebec), don't need a lot of competition, can schedule your playing activities to coincide with when the few other players are online, and value cheap, easy and secure money transfers, this seems to be as good a site as you’re going to find.

Title:Very weak players but poor site 8 out of 11 readers found this review helpful
The software sucks, I really dislike it. Very few options and some annoying pop ups every 10 minutes. It also Auto-sit me out sometimes - even if I uncheck the sit out box - after timing out, and make me miss hands/blinds on cash games.

You cant' get up a table and change seat without closing the window, note taking system is really weak and annoying compared to FT or PS, or a lot of other sites, Traffic is slow, Graphics are very weak, hand review is pretty much impossible while playing.

There has been no noticeable software upgrade since the launch almost a year ago, and account balance always take a few minutes to update (when adding money)

Traffic is pretty low outside of evenings but the players are so terrible. Every level I tried (up to 15cent/30cent) feels like playing 1c/2c on FT or PS most of the time. If it wasn't for the terrible players (And free 10$ sign up bonus) I would never play on that website.
