Titan Poker is a new site on the iPoker
network that is quickly becoming popular with new
players. They do have some strong promotions to entice
new depositors, and I’ve seen a significant growth in
the player base over the past few months. In terms of
customer service and payouts, they’re also very
professional. Perhaps the best reason to play here is
the large number of inexperienced and new poker players
brought on by the player-friendly promotions. Both
no-limit and fixed limit tables are extremely soft with
high flop percentages and weak competition. Fixed limit
players will also like the fact that their tables may be
more popular than no-limit on this site.
Bonus: 4.5 (100%
up to $500)
Our players are eligible for a full 100% deposit match
Titan, which is pretty generous. They do
allow you to use that up to $500, so this is one of the
better bonuses for high stakes players. Be sure that you
use one of our links as the standard bonus is only 50%. You work off the
bonus by collecting “Stars” through ring game or
tournament play. Micro-limit players will need to work
extra hard to clear this bonus, but playing at .50/$1
limits or higher should allow you to clear the full bonus.
SPECIAL PROMOTION: We're
hosting a private $2,000 freeroll to our next 75
depositing players at Titan Poker. Since this is limited
to 75 players, the field will be much smaller than a
typical freeroll with a much larger prize pool. Here's
what you need to do to qualify:
Titan Poker through our site. You must do
this or the software will not add your account to the
2. Download the software.
3. Create a new account and use bonus code "titan2k".
4. Make any first deposit.
5. Haunt the tables and enjoy!
Titan will send you an e-mail with the final
date and time of the freeroll.
One of the better incentives from
Titan to make your first deposit is the
$1,000 freeroll, which is only open to new players and
is in addition to our private $2,000 freeroll. This
is much better than a traditional freeroll, since the
number of participants is usually under 300. Plus, the
prize pool is actually decent at $1,000, so smart
tournament players have a good shot at a substantial
prize. This site has also jumped on the $100 Million
Freeroll bandwagon which is actually a big $500,000
online freeroll with jackpots up to $100 Million at the
final table. New depositors will have a shot to qualify
or you can earn your entry through Sit ‘n Gos and/or
multi-table tournament satellites. Their other big
promotion right now is a $100,000 jackpot to anyone who
wins some of their top Sit ‘n Gos a number of
consecutive times. A more realistic goal would be the
“Dirty Dozen” Jackpot, which gives you $2,000 if you win
4 of their 2-table Sit ‘n Gos in a row. They’ve also
added the ability to make private tables within the
software. They also have Bad Beat Jackpots and a Top
Hand of the Day bonus for the best holding of the day.
With so many promotions, the player base here is mostly
inexperienced passive players. Especially in no-limit
ring games, most of your opponents will play too many
hands and will pay you off with second-best holdings.
When you hit a good run of cards at
Titan, you can usually expect a good payoff.
The flop percentage is sometimes unusually high at 50+%
even at the middle limits, so you’ll be getting good
odds to play your drawing hands. Just be sure to raise
your premium hands more than normal to discourage trash
hands from sticking around and drawing out on you.
Overall, I’ve done well playing on this network and I’ve
received other comments about the weak-passive (calling
station) play of opponents here. The pots are usually
larger than average at these tables.
The tournament traffic is only fair at
Titan because the site is still in its
infancy. However, they have been attractive some good
number for $5 and $10 events, typically drawing 200-300
players during peak hours. Freeroll players will also
find a decent number of wild $100 events. These are
pretty crazy and luck-based, so just keep them open in a
second window or try out the new player $1,000 freeroll
and our $2,000 event.
Another positive at playing at a smaller site is the
number of guaranteed tournaments, since they don’t
usually meet the expected number of players. If they’re
running a $1,000 guaranteed $5 buy-in event and only 80
people show up, they’ll still add another $600 to the
I find the blue color scheme appealing, and
Titan is probably my favorite for iPoker
network sites. On a more objective note, the software
runs at a good pace without a bunch of extra frills.
Typical hands/hour is 55-65, so you’ll see a lot of fast
action. The graphics at the table are pretty sharp, and
the cards are easy to see. You have to find filled
tables amongst all the empty ones in the lobby, but
other than that it is pretty easy to navigate. I also
like the hand history feature here, which has a
graphical interface. Finally, they have a section with a
number of casino games if your table is getting slow.
Poker is so much better because you actually control the
odds with your actions, and you should remember the
inherent house advantage with casino games before you
plunk down too much cash.
-Good deposit bonus. While it takes a little longer to
clear, this is one of the largest bonuses that you can
-Weak competition. The ring games, especially no limit,
are very loose.
-New player freeroll. This is a smaller event that gives
you a better chance of coming in the money.
-Solid software. The color scheme is really nice and the
lobby is easy to use.
I haven’t had any delays with cashouts, and I’ve
generally received my NETeller cashouts by the next day.
No problems here.
Customer Service: 5
The customer service at
Titan is almost a little too good, since
you’ll get hit with a live chat window as soon as you
become a new player. This goes away of course, and the
live chat is a really handy feature if you need to take
care of things right away. They also have telephone
support, which is also important.
Game Selection: Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha H/L
Limits: Fixed Limit: .02/.04 - $100/200
No Limit: .01/.02 - $5/10
You should always remember how easily great hands can go
awry. Suppose that you’re dealt 8-5 from the big blind,
and there are 4 callers in for the minimum. You check it
down and 5 of you see a flop of 8-5-K. Right now you’ve
got a great hand and lead out with a pot-sized bet. You
get two callers, but the turn comes with another K.
Unfortunately, your hand has just been counterfeited.
Everyone has a pair of Kings now, and you’ve got a
second pair of 8s with a 5 kicker. You only get credit
for the best 5 cards, so your pair of 5s doesn’t count.
Anyone with a K has you dominated, and even J-8 has a
better kicker than you now. You’ll have to check this
hand and fold to any significant action. Another tip for
Titan Poker: since there will typically be 4
or 5 players seeing the flop for the minimum, you should
look for chances to play hands like suited connectors
from late position. You’ll be getting the right pot odds
to do it, and you can really take down a monster pot if
you connect on the flop. No one suspects you to be
holding a hand like 5-6, and that’s the beauty of
playing them in no-limit hold‘em.
