VC Poker Review
VC Poker comes from the same people that bought you VC Casino and VC Bet and new members get a 25% bonus on their first deposit. With decent liquidity VC Poker is a great place for poker beginners to make a start and intermediate to expert players will not get bored. Poker games on offer include Texas Hold 'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo and Badugi.
Victor Chandler, as VC used to be known, are true veterans of gambling and Victor Chandler himself has become somewhat of a legend in gambling circles being the first UK bookie to move his operation offshore.
You may be familiar with the name VC Poker due to their recent poster ad campaign. The campaign featuring comedian Roland Riveron and was both critically acclaimed and award winning.
The VC Poker School
VC Poker is a great choice if you are a poker newbie and want to ease your way into this highly competitive, and rewarding online world. As with many of the other online poker websites named here on Jackpot, VC Poker offers a range of poker school tutorials. Unlike many of VC Poker's online competitors, the VC Poker School is actually very informative and honest. The VC Poker school really is an indispensable guide to online poker packed with useful hints and tips from the pros as well as some first rate interactive tutorials.
Downloading the software is painless and very fast. Then you get to set up your very own poker profile with an avatar and option to add personal information under some bizarre categories including 'my funny pet stories!' There are so many tables that once signed up to a queue to play you should be playing within minutes. This is much faster than with some of the other, bigger online poker sites where you can be waiting around for ages before you get to see any action.
VC Poker is run on Tribecca software and game play at VC Poker is fast, fun, smooth and seamless. Other sites using the same software include Page 3 Poker, Daily Star Poker, Aspinals Poker and Wannado Poker. One thing that really makes VC Poker stand out from the crowd is the sense of community you feel playing there. You can tell the whole poker team work very hard at making sure that your time spent at VC Poker is enjoyable and rewarding. We don't think you will be disappointed. Highly recommended.

VC Poker Tournaments
VC runs one of the biggest tournament diaries in online poker with buy-ins from as little as £0.10 to £50.00. These poker tournaments range from the basic single and multi table tournaments to speed, rebuy and even land based tournaments where you can play the old fashioned way – poker face to poker face.
Satellite Grand Final, the VC Poker multi-hand tournament is run every Saturday night and the prize pool can run into several thousands of pounds. Qualify through their week day satellite qualifiers of buy-in. There are also various single table tournaments throughout the week.
The VC Poker Cup
Your chance to qualify for this prestigious televised poker tournament and take your seat next to poker legends such as David ‘The Devilfish’ Ulliot, Brian Wilson et al. The prize pool in the last VC Poker cup was £480.000.00 with £200,000.00 going to the winner. Refreshingly, all of the top ten cash winners were amateurs from the website so the tournament really is open to all.
VC Poker Promotions
VC Poker offers a new player bonus of 25% of your first deposit. This is pretty much standard in online poker. VC Poker run a player of the month promotion where they profile one of their lucky members, immortalising them in pixels as well as giving them £100.00 free chips with which to show off their skills.
A good range of tournaments that with competition to gain entry less fierce than with many of the other bigger world poker tournaments. As with all VC products the customer services is second to none.
The player base is smaller than some of the mammoth sites like Party and Paradise so the pot sizes are often smaller at VC Poker.
