“Poker - because no great story starts with a salad.”
- Anonymous

With over decade of experience each, it’s safe to say that we’ve been around. Our teams 14 professional players have combined winnings for over USD 23 million from online and over USD 12 million worth of cashes listed in The Hendon Mob. We’ve played everywhere; from huge casinos in Las Vegas to little cottages in the middle of nowhere. We have loved, laughed and cried at the tables. But even more so; we have won at the tables. Our personalities might be different, our heritage or even our language might be different; but there’s something that unites us with you: We Got Game. This emotion and this sense of purpose resonates in ‘you’ as well as ‘us’ irrespective of where you are in your poker journey!

Beasts of Poker was created for freedom loving people who dream big and don’t want to be stuck in the same old office cubicle for the rest of their lives. We want to inspire people and help them in their journey to financial independence via mastering Poker.

We intend not only to help players who want to improve their game, but also to bring a bit of the flash of the golden era of poker. On our website, you don’t just see how it’s done, you also get to see what happens when it’s done right.

Our goal is to provide our members with the best rakeback deals, easier transactions with e-wallets and members-only benefits like private tournaments, better bonuses and rake races.

Please note that, just like in poker, in business, the moment you stop improving, is the moment you start losing. We believe in the principle of ‘kaizen’ or continuous improvement. If you want to perfect your game and take it to the ultimate level – we can help you. Our Pro Team includes multiple self-made poker millionaires & players who are featured coaches on the biggest poker training sites.

How we review poker sites

area-line orange

As you’ve probably noticed, we have reviewed several poker sites here at Beasts Of Poker. As we’re building a community of inspired poker players and enthusiasts, we want to be transparent about what happens behind the scenes as we’re writing about different poker sites.

Before we dive into the details of our reviewing process, you need to understand how our site covers the expenses created for producing all the content we have here. If you decide to click one of our sign-up buttons and open an account on a poker site or purchase a poker training course, we will get paid a fee for advertising. This business model is called affiliate marketing. The way affiliate marketing works differs a bit from other types of advertising. As an affiliate, you’re earning an income by promoting someone else’s products, not your own.

An obvious question to ask regarding our business model might have popped in your head, ‘Do you advertise any brands just to pay the bills’? The short answer: No. It would make us more money in the short term to promote all kinds of poker sites. But, we’re more focused on only beating the drum for those sites we like to play on ourselves.

To put it bluntly, we are not Mickey Mouse affiliates – we are Beasts Of Poker! Hence we want to be friends with the best brands that offer value for both recreational and professional players. Recommending a site that we wouldn’t play on ourselves just isn’t a cool thing to do… And on our site, we strive to put on cool things only. Period.
