Red Star Poker is a Russian oriented online poker room based in Curacao that began operations in 2005. Red Star Poker was originally launched on the Cake Poker Network and now sits along side sites like Cake Poker and Only Poker. They are still operating on the Cake Poker Network to this day. Red Star Poker's current real money player statistics are showing 2,000 ring game players and 6,000 tournament players at peak hours as of May 2012.
Red Star Poker's main promotion is the Gold Card promotion but they also offer $1,000 in weekly freerolls. Gold Cards are earned by playing raked hands in cash games. Once a certain amount of rake has been colleted for a hand Red Star Poker uses their random number generator to select a player to receive a Gold Card. Gold Cards can be used in a daily Gold Card lottery to win cash prizes or for other monthly promotional rewards. RedStarPoker also runs a Gold Chip promotion where you earn Gold Chips by playing raked hands in cash games or paying tournament fees. Gold Chips can be used to buy in to special Gold Chip Tournaments.
RedStar Poker offers nearly every variation of poker besides low ball and draw games. You won't see much traffic on anything other than Holdem and Omaha games and Stud traffic is almost non-existent. Red Star Poker's game selection includes Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven Card stud, Seven Card Stud 8 or Better, five card Stud and Texas Holdem at stakes from as little as ¢.01/¢.02 and all the way up to $300/$600.
Red Star Poker uses the Cake Poker Network software that is well known for crisp and clean graphics and great playability. Some of the software features include the ability to easily multi table up to eight tables at once (you can play as many tables as you want but its most comfortable playing at 8 or less), an easy to use player stats feature and a hand history feature that also keeps track of player chat. The software doesn't really offer any over the top features but all the functions are useful in helping the player customize the game play to their liking.
Overall Red Star Poker offers a great poker platform for any player and responds quickly to player's questions and feedback.
