Cake Poker - YUK!
I've been a regular on Stars, FT and Party for about 5 years now, but every now and then, after I've made a sizable withdrawal, I like to look around for new poker rooms—
ones that offer a decent first time depositor bonus—when my regulars aren't offering any reload incentives.
Anyway, this time that new poker site
happened to be Cake Poker
Here's what I hate about it the most:
1. It spends more time down that it does up. It crashes every 5 minutes it seems.
2. The software is like something from the 1970's. Just slow and annoying. So many times now I've taken numerous notes on players only
to find that they weren't saved.
3. HUD. It's against Cake Poker's policy to run a HUD programme of any kind. Which makes multi-tabling very difficult. You can of course still use poker tracker to keep track of your play; which sounds reasonable until you realise that the hand history is encrypted in some very strange way which seems to mess with PT, rendering it effectively useless.
Oh and last but not least...
4. Withdrawal. I tried to make a Moneybookers
withdrawal (the same method I had used to deposit) and expected a fairly speedy process, given that on Pokerstars
and FullTilt it's nearly instant. But no, this is Cake Poker. I waited 3 days for that withdrawal.
So I guess the moral of the story is: Cake Poker sucks balls.
