Pacific run their own events and so draw in a high number of poker players from advertising on TV and the web. There is plenty of action here due to the high number of players and so there is little waiting time required for your favourite events.PlayabilityVery juicy indeed. Pacific brings in a high number of gamblers from it’s casino operation, so lots of loose action. Navigation around Pacific is easy and the tables have a good look and feel to them. But I consider professional poker players, that make a living out of the game, as investors, I count systematic losers who play for enjoyment as gamblers and PacificPoker has many of these.Deposit optionsYou can deposit using methods including Visa, Mastercard, Neteller, Wire Transfer and many others.
