re: Poker & NLOP (National league of poker)
I'm the poker room manager for NLOP. Although we are not a traditional real money
poker room we strive to provide each player with that experience. We have made huge strides to improve the poker software and offerings over the past few years. We have been around since 2006 and are completely legit, I wouldn't work for a company that wasn't (you can check my cv on that one
We have awarded over $5 million in cash and prizes. All of the play is via virtual currency or invite buy-ins. We have tournaments which offer cash (hourly, daily, weekly and monthly) as well as live event buy-ins or experiences (such as cruises or holiday packages). We just wrapped up a live event series which awarded a trip to Las Vegas and a seat to play in the exclusive St Jude's poker tournament which Daniel N. supports and hosts each year.
Like I said, it's not a traditional RM site and the prize pool is funded by the ads that are served. Although, as mentioned by someone else we do have a paid membership which removed 3rd party ads and awards additional virtual currency along with unlimited level 3 invites to our larger series.
We have a new blog up which explains the site in greater detail nlop(dot)com, feel free to check it out and let me know if you have any additional questions. We appreciate the support and always value player feedback.
Hopefully we will see you at the tables!
