Spartan Poker reviewed - what we did we think? Our expert team assessed this popular Indian poker destination.
Spartan Poker opened in 2014 and has been serving Indian players nonstop ever since. Which is something to be proud of in this market!
Spartan Poker has a nice selection of bonuses, a decent range of tables and a good selection of tournaments. They are currently the yearly host of the India Online Poker Championship - which has a $60,000 prize pool, guaranteed.
If you don't mind playing with rupees (you can convert on site) there are plenty of fish on Spartan Poker for sure. The welcome bonus isn't bad either, and the rake is decent at 3-5% depending on your table.
Games, Tournaments and Experience
Spartan Poker is aimed at Indian players. No getting around that. But it is available in English, written to a perfect standard to be fair.
There are some 3 dozen tables here open on any given day. That's not bad - not quite the best on the market but good enough for most. Plus, more at weekends and peak hours!
That covers all the poker variants you could want like:
- Classic Texas Hold 'em
- Five Card Omaha
- Chinese Poker
- Six Card PLO
There's also daily, weekly and monthly tournaments. It looked like there was always one open with an hour when we looked for this review. Easy!
Cash prizes are generally smaller, being in rupees and aimed at the Indian market. But that means plenty of fish in the waters too, as this popular site attracts many players who have no idea what they're doing.
Spartan Poker's welcome offer is anything but spartan - you can bag 300% up to $300 or 24,000 rupees.
This bonus money has a 30-day expiry. It is released as you pay the rake - for about every 10 cents you get a dollar of your bonus. Which you'll breeze through if you're betting decent money.
Spartan Poker uses VISA or MasterCard deposits, when it comes to cards.
You can also use Skrill or Neteller e-wallets, which make banking efficient and simple.
Online bank deposits are also available but are the slowest method.
Either way, you can't withdraw to card - so watch out for that. Payouts take 1 day on all methods, but 3-5 days for bank transfers.
Spartan Poker - Our Verdict
Spartan Poker is super popular with Indian players, and we can see why. It might not have 1000+ games every day - but you'll never wait for a seat, and there's plenty of tournament options too. Plus, a tasty welcome offer and decent rake structure. Nice!
