About Planet Poker

Since Planet Poker's inception in January of 1998, we have been successfully servicing our players by providing quality entertainment and customer service in an ever evolving industry. Planet Poker was the first on-line cardroom establishing itself as an industry leading full service cardroom through until March, 2007 when real money games were suspended to be in compliance with the Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act (UIGEA). Planet Poker continues to operate as an entertainment play money poker site where players have the option to subscribe for additional features and benefits. For a full history of Planet Poker, please visit the Wikipedia reference article.

Planet Poker is an entertainment poker site that allows players to compete against each other in realistic games for play tokens. The objective is to provide fun and challenging ring and tournament games where players can hone their poker skills in a safe and friendly environment without the risk of actually losing money. All levels of poker games and tournament variants are available and we've taken the care to come up with a structure whereby all players, regardless of motivation or skill, can find a game compatible with their entertainment needs.

Players can play at Planet Poker for free or choose to subscribe to the site for additional game features and benefits. Players can not redeem any tokens, either awarded through a subscription or accumulated through game play, for monetary or financial value.

Remember, poker is a game of skill and our higher limit players have tended to be students of the game for longer periods of time than our entry level players. Our high limit games tend to be more realistic and the competition is tougher than the low limit tables. To get started, download and install the game software.
