Absolute Poker is attempting to rebuild its customer base and restore faith in its security measures with a relaunch which is set to benefit all players. After refunding millions of dollars to players affected, the two sites involved in the controversy – Ultimate Bet and Absolute Poker are now trying to rebuild and in doing so they are offering massive bonuses to players who are interested in giving the site another chance. Absolute Poker has come along with a fantastic 200% bonus up to $500 tailored towards players looking to kick start their bankroll. Both AP and UB have now merged to form the Cereus Network and players can be assured that they’ve learned from the mistakes of the past and won’t be caught in such a compromising position again. If for nothing but the value, players would be crazy to pass the opportunity to take advantage of one of these industry best deposit bonuses.
Bonus terms and conditions
Absolute Poker offers players a huge 200% to $500 first deposit bonus allowing new users to triple their bankroll! To convert your bonus dollars into cash, Absolute Poker uses a 'Fame' status – beginning from Bronze all the way up to Diamond Elite. The higher your fame status, the faster you turn those bonus dollars into cash. Bonus money is released in $5 increments.

Limits & Rake
Absolute Poker spreads a wide array of games at limits to suit virtually every bankroll. Micro stakes cash games start as low as $0.02/$0.04 and they proceed upwards to a pulsating $300/$600 game that gets up more often then you’d expect.
The rake system is complex. Safe to say its pretty much on par with the rest of the industry, in some cases cheaper due to it being based on players at the table and limits etc. Full details on the rake for specific stakes and table sizes are available at the Absolute Poker website.
In partnership with Ultimate Bet, Absolute Poker has formed the Cereus Network merging their player bases to create a new entity challenging for a place in the top five in player traffic in the online poker industry. Even at peak European times this site is solidly in the top ten, despite most of its traffic being an American customer base. Absolute Poker like many of the larger sites that accept Americans is a poker haven 24 hours a day. This is great for those in Australia and New Zealand who commonly find peak playing hours closer to those played by Americans than the hours that the bulk of Europeans play.
Those familiar with the Absolute Poker software client will experience no difference in their game play as the site joins the Cereus Network. Nearly all the functionality is similar to the old software which was fairly well regarded. One of the advantages of being on the network will be extra development of the client so that it can stay abreast of the latest changes to software in the industry. Expect some good upgrades on the way in the next few months.
Absolute Poker offer three options when it comes to support. First there is a comprehensive web based frequently asked questions and self-help section that will enable users to quickly look up an answer to common problems, therefore saving time for themselves, instead of waiting for a reply from support. Failing that, Absolute Poker have a great customer support team who are available to reply to emails 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
