South African Poker has entered a new era with an influx of online poker rooms. However, as with the casinos, it's the likes of Silver Sands Poker (Silver Sands Casino) who have risen to the top. We are seriously fortunate to have this class of poker room to play at. The software, although different, is throughly efficient. We don't need to stand back for anyone here. He have the best! The acid test is the result at the recent World Series of Poker where South Africa's Ray Rahme (an online player) came 3rd in the world. Don't discount this! By coming 3rd, Ray Rahme told the world that Southern African Poker is alive and well!
This has led into more offshore poker rooms showing an interest in South Africa. The most recent entrant into South Africa is CD Poker, a playtech powered poker room who are well established in Europe. They now have a rand currency available and are working on increasing the number of deposit methods. There are a number of other large poker rooms who advertise here as well but we have ignored them for the time being seeing as they have not taken the time and trouble to establish a South African Rands playing platform
