PlayersOnly short description

  • Established 2006

  • Rating 9,85/10

  • US players accept

  • Deposit bonus 100% up to $650

  • Size 13 MB

The PlayersOnly online poker room has the look and feel of a decent place to enjoy your favorite game. The overall environment and atmosphere give that unique taste of poker lifestyle with both high class and real party feel. If you want the best out of the gaming lifestyle, the PlayersOnly is the right room to try. This place made a stunningly good impression on me for my first visit. Besides of this, I found that they accept payments from USA players, which makes this place even more attractive and playable, because the larger is the room’s auditory – the more loose money they put in your pocket.

PlayersOnly Bonus

Please note that this first deposit bonus is only available for poker players and cannot be used with PlayersOnly casino and sportsbook, although both give you 10% instant bonus.

PlayersOnly Lobby and Tables

I must admit that PlayersOnly has probably the smoothest and the most eye-friendly design and convenient controls, which makes your gaming experience quite pleasant and easy. The entire poker room software is about 13 MB, so it downloads within a wink of an eye and quickly takes you to the lobby.

The room offers many pleasant options, such as a great selection of avatars, including the ability to upload a photo. Other useful options that will be helpful for all players are:

•  Detailed hand history

•  Typical action button, which automates fold, raise and re-raise actions

•  Notes on players, which can be easily viewed during the game

•  Wide variety of layouts

The PlayersOnly poker room lobby is pretty functional too. It looks just nice and is quite easy to use. Although there’s nothing flashy or revolutionary, it looks just the way a decent lobby should look and what is more important, it has a stable platform that it very simple to use and navigate. The lobby’s table information includes:

•  Number of players in waiting list

•  Average players to the flop

•  Stakes range

•  Type of the game

•  Average pot size

This information is quite sufficient to feel comfortable with the room. Besides of table information, you can check your rewards, cashier and account information.

Loyalty program

Each PlayersOnly player earns FPP’s, awarded faster than in many other online poker rooms. 1 FPP is awarded for every buck in rake with a max of 3 FPP’s per each hand. Besides of this, players earn 7 FPP’s for every buck in tournament rake, which also includes fractional points. Gold chips are awarded in addition to FPP’s and can be redeemed with free tournament entries, money and various merchandise.

Available poker games

At PlayersOnly, you can play all popular poker games, such as Texas Holdem (including Limit, No-Limit and Pot-Limit variants of the game), Omaha (including Hi/Lo, Hi, Limit and Pot-Limit variants of the game), Seven Card Stud (including Limit, No-Limit and Pot-Limit variants of the game). Besides of poker games, you can bet in PlayersOnly casino, which offers blackjack, 3 card poker, slots, roulette, video poker and craps, or in PlayersOnly Sportsbook.

Traffic Levels

There are plenty of traffic at the small stakes ($0,05 – $0,10 to $5-$10 tables). However, you will always find a lot of players at $10-$20 tables as well. In the beginning of 2009 there were up to 30,000 players during peak hours in ring games and up to 12,000 tournament players.


If you are looking for a poker room with plenty of fish, then PlayersOnly is the right choice. There are plenty of fish at all stake levels, so strong players can go fishing here without any doubts. The average percentage of seeing the flop is sometimes reaching 45%, which means that there are so many fish that you’ll definitely earn good money there.


PlayersOnly guarantees $3,000,000 in monthly tournaments. Poker tournaments are very popular among the players of this room, although I must admit that the competition may be a little bit tense. The guaranteed events at PlayersOnly range from $5,000 to $25,000 in guaranteed prize pools. At Sundays, there is a $75,000 guaranteed tournament with a buy-in of only $100. Besides of this, there are plenty of sit-and-go tournaments, so you can always find a wide selection of buy-in levels regardless of the time of the day.

Deposit and withdrawal options

PlayersOnly accepts payments from US residents and they claim that they have the highest acceptance rates of credit cards in the industry. The minimum first deposit amount is $20. You can withdraw your winnings to your bank account or request a check.


PlayersOnly is one of the best online poker rooms I’ve ever seen. They don’t overplay with unnecessary things, they have nearly ideal graphics, plenty of useful features, great bonuses and excellent loyalty program. Considering the fact that they’re a growing poker room, I think PlayersOnly is definitely worth to try.
