PAF has been an established business since 1966, offering online gaming via their website since 1999.
The software used is licenced by Boss Media Software, and they are part of the Paf Group. They are operated out of Finland as a non-profit organisation and offer a range of other online gaming facilities for Casino, Sports, and Bingo.
Earlier in 2017, a prize of 3.5 million Euros was won on the site at PAF Casino, this has led to their increasing popularity in the online gaming space. Their website is clean, simple and easy to navigate around.
Earning themselves a great reputation within the industry, as they give their profits to charity, there are nearly no negatives comments online about this provider.
PAF poker makes it easy to access and use their website. Not only do they have a client you can download into your PC or MAC; they also offer an instant play option for your browser that will work quite easily.
One thing to mention regarding accessibility on their site is that it is not quick to sign up. You first need to register and send them your ID details before you are able to play Poker. It makes for a very safe environment, however, if you are looking to play poker online with PAF quickly, this does delay things somewhat.
Bonus and Promotions
Although there is a basic sign-up bonus, it is nothing to write home about. As a new player, you get entries for six weeks into freerolls that run weekly on a Wednesday worth 500 Euros. You can also enter a tournament that only cost around 1 Euro to enter and gives a good prize return of 500 Euros. There is also no loyalty program or rake back available which compared with other sites, leaves a little to be desired and is a real downside to this site. All of the promotions are available only on the Ongame skin and not on their mobile poker network.
Payment and Deposits
Mastercard, VisaCard and Wire transfer are all options for making a payment online. There is also Skrill, Moneybookers and bank transfer as available choices. With Skrill, formerly known as Moneybookers, they make it easy to set up a payment option that will allow to you add and remove funds for free. Paysafecard is also a good pre-payment option if none of the above is appropriate.
Their customer support is reported to be friendly, responsive and knowledgeable. There is no Live chat function, and they can only be reached via email or on the phone. They only man their phones, and email support between 8 am and 11 pm GMT, so if there is anything urgent outside of these hours, you have to wait.
They have been reviewed elsewhere, and have been quoted as responding to emails within a matter of minutes in some cases. Of course, this is as long as they are open.
Conclusion & SCORE
The site looks good, the support is good; the lack of bonuses and promotions on offer, however, make this site a lot less appealing to the seasoned Poker player.
