Why play at Mermaid Poker?
Mermaid poker is a well established poker room that's part of the IPN Poker network. With a huge poker bonus of €500 up for grabs, and great looking poker software, this is an excellent all round poker room to choose. One thing they do especially well is customer service and you can contact them 24/7 using the helpful Live Chat system or alternatively send an email to their support team.
Mermaid Poker software
The Mermaid software is well designed. The lobby is easy to navigate and a cool feature is the 'Quick Play' tab. Here you can choose the game type and stake, and it will quickly seat you at a cash table or sit n go that matches your preferences.
You can also play without downloading the sofware, using their great 'instant play' feature on the MermaidPoker.com website.
Both Windows and Mac operating systems are supported.
But of course it's gameplay that's most important and here Mermaid Poker really delivers, with smart table layouts and smooth graphics which render well even if you adjust the table size to its minimum.
Multi-tabling here is a snap, you can play up to 100 at once (so essentially you're only limited by how many you feel able to play at once).

Mermaid Poker loyalty and reward scheme
As soon as you register a new account with Mermaid you're automatically part of the VIP Loyalty program. There are five levels of the scheme, depending on how many Frequent Player Points (FPPs) you earn, starting at 'Bronze' (500 FPPs in a month), up to 'Elite' (10,000 FPPs in a month). Each level has progressively higher freerolls that happen each month you'll be eligible for.
For MTT and SNG tournament play, 1 FPP is earned for every €0.25 paid in tournament fees. For cash game play, 1 FPP is earned for every €0.25 contributed in rake.
The FPPs will continue to be 'live' as long as your account doesn't go inactive for more than six months (in which case they'd expire).
Mermaid Poker traffic
Mermaid is part of the popular International Poker Network, which is the 14th most popular room/network in the world. so traffic here is good, especially at the weekends and during evenings.
