Cool Hand Poker is, of course, a site dedicated to poker, rather than to a general selection of online gambling games. It bills itself as a site for amateurs who are out for a good time, and to win a little money. In short, Cool Hand Poker is aiming at a very specific type of market: poker fans who want to learn the game, or polish up their skills, before they dive into more pulse-pounding, high-level game play elsewhere. The site also caters to people who are not fond of gambling itself, since users can play poker for fun without wagering any money. (Of course, they will not be able to collect any winnings, either, should they prove victorious.)
Promotions and bonuses
This site offers ₤200 to new players, but it must be admitted that the conditions are a little complicated, and getting your full payout might take a long time. On a special day each month (specifically, the third Sunday), players will be able to enter games more cheaply, and may even win free entry to successive tournaments. There are also bonuses for referring friends and acquaintances to the site.
To reiterate, Cool Hand Poker is, indeed, all about poker. Fans of more general gambling sites might find the prospect boring, but people who have experience with poker understand that the game is complex enough to merit its own web space. Furthermore, besides the features of the game itself, the site offers lots of auxiliary features, such as a poker school and some tournaments. Adding other games might place excessive burden on the site managers, and prove distracting to players.
Safety and security
Cool Hand Poker distinguishes itself from other poker sites by advertising a more secure, relaxing environment. It does this by paying special attention to keeping cheaters and even professional players away from the site. This may be an attractive proposition to some, but is also controversial for many reasons. Of course, keeping away cheaters is quite right and proper, but targeting professionals is a little more troublesome. Exactly how does the site define professionals? Are these people who have highly-developed poker skills and use them to make a living off less experienced players? If so, is it right or even feasible to target the people who do better in competition? After all, it seems unfair to shut a player out and/or start investigating him/her just because he/she is playing remarkably well.
As is the case with a lot of good gambling sites, players can select from several types of support. There is, of course, an FAQ page. You can also ask for live help or fill out an inquiry form.
This poker website is, fortunately, available in several languages, which can help to build a diverse community of players. In addition to English, the site may be reviewed in Danish, French, German, Italian, Hungarian, Swedish, Dutch, Norwegian, and Finnish. Judging from the language selection, it appears that this site is geared primarily towards European users.
Players from the US are not allowed at Cool Hand Poker.
