Winner Poker Review

Powered by Playtech, and part of the iPoker network, Winner Poker has been around for a good while now and also offers sports betting and an online casino. With some great bonuses and a tiered VIP system, they've quickly made a name for themselves as a real player in the UK market.

They're also West Ham United's official injury time partner, so you may well have seen their name pop up during some nail biting finishes if you're a West Ham fan or your team has played them recently.

  • Powerful Playtech gaming software
  • $2,000 welcome bonus and good loyalty scheme
  • Good range of deposit options accepted
  • 24-hour phone support for customers

Games and Tournaments/Events

Winner Poker offers all sorts of different events, with a range of tournaments throughout the week such as:

  • Monday Night Omaha
  • Friday's 30k Guaranteed
  • The 100k Sunday special

However, you can also join their Twister poker Sit and Go tournaments at any time, with prizes up to and including 1,000 times your initial buy-in.

Winner HITS

  • Large welcome bonus and favourable playthrough requirements
  • Popular site that sees high traffic
  • Many popular banking options for easy deposits and withdrawals
  • Sit N Go tournaments generate high jackpots


  • Offers Hold'em and Omaha games only
  • The game graphics are not the best out there

Player Skill Levels

You'll find players of all skill levels playing at Winner Poker, but the relative lack of high stakes games (excluding their tournaments) means that experienced players and high rollers may be drawn elsewhere.

The fact that only Hold 'Em and Omaha games are offered, two favourites of players who are just starting out, means that you might be paired up with a lot of beginners. Mind you, that's no bad thing, as it means you may be able to work the table to your advantage!




Winner Poker has a mobile beta available on iPhone or Android smartphones, as well as iPads and iPod Touch. Apologies to any Windows Phone users, but you're out of luck here.

The app itself is simple to use and has a Quick Seating option to help you buy in and get playing with only a tap or two. The graphics aren't anything special, but they're functional and just about on par with the main site's look and feel.

Site Traffic

Generous bonuses for new players and regular promotions/events mean that Winner Poker has no shortage of traffic. The site is aimed primarily at players in the UK, evident from its domain, so evenings/nights in UK time zones are probably their busiest.

However, because there are only two game types, you can almost always find a game whatever stakes you're looking to play. At the time of writing, early evening on a Thursday, just shy of 10,000 players were online.


Winner Poker has a huge welcome bonus, up to 250% match on deposits up to £1,200, that's released in increments as you play. That should be enough to make you stick around for a while.

And, if you do, you'll probably rise through the ranks of their VIP ladder scheme. The higher your level, the fewer points you need to withdraw bigger sums of real cash. You can also trade points for branded merchandise and gadgets, receive free tournament tickets and enjoy various other rewards.

Telephone support is available between 3pm and midnight UK time 7 days a week. If you have a query at any other time, you'll have to send them an email. In our Winner Poker review, we found that they're usually pretty quick to reply though.


The site offers a huge range of banking options including, but not limited to:

  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Neteller
  • Ukash
  • Click2Pay

Deposits and withdrawals are processed quickly and securely, and you'd struggle to find a poker site with a wider range of payment options. The only downside is that they don't offer PayPal, which Brits can use at some other sites.



Like all of the great poker sites we offer, Winner Poker has a zero tolerance policy toward any form of cheating, and their tables are fair and balanced for players of all skill levels.


Come for the welcome bonus, stay for the VIP rewards and promotions! If you're a fan of poker variations other than Omaha and Texas Hold'em, this probably won't be the site for you (that's all Winner Poker offers) but it will be more than enough to keep most UK players busy.
