"Sun Poker" is the new name for Carribean Sun Poker, a poker room that has been on the internet for years.

SunPoker also run lots of private tournaments for anyone required, have their own SunPoker Store where you can buy lots of SunPoker-related products, and are in the process of creating a loyalty rewards program.
Sun Poker Software: Graphically, Sun Poker has a simple interface, with a dark background that is still stylish, and doesn't take the focus away from the table. Their cards are crisp and clear, and they allow four colour decks, which make it easier to multi-table. Your experience is also very customizable, with the ability to change the sound effects, chat value, and the information displayed. Unfortunately, checking your balance or wanting to deposit or withdraw requires you to exit all poker tables.
Sun Poker Traffic: GMT Peak Time: 5000-6000 players. EST Peak Time: 2000 players. Sun Poker also has a lot more 7 Card Stud players than the industry standard.
Sun Poker Game Variety: Sun Poker offer Texas Hold'Em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, and Seven Card Stud, with limit, no limit and pot limit versions of Texas Hold'Em and Omaha, Full Ring and Six Max. They also offer heads-up Hold'Em cash games, as well as Single & Multi Table Tournaments, although these are usually Hold'Em dominated. Games can be played in Dollar, Pound or Euro, with the lowest stakes being $0.5/$1.
Sun Poker Fish Factor: With sportsbooks like William Hill being part of the Cryptologic Network the fish factor is increased. On the other side, there are quite a few bonus-clearing rocks at the tables. Overall, it's a nice mix and an easy site to make a good profit.
Sun Poker Bonuses: Sun Poker offer a $50 sign-up bonus, clearable at 250 raked hands, and a $100 monthly reload, clearable at 500 hands.
