Everest E-Report: Everest Knows How to Treat VIPs at WSOP

Share this
The positive presence of Everest Poker at the 2008 World Series of Poker is undeniable, and the name of the most popular online poker site in Europe is on the lips of nearly everyone at the WSOP. After weeks of seeing the Everest Poker logo on the felt of every table, around the inside ring of the ESPN feature table, and on the VIP lounge in the Rio Convention Center hallway, all WSOP visitors are acutely more familiar with the brand.

With a busy schedule at the WSOP, I had passed the Everest Poker hospitality lounge numerous times before finally approaching the friendly faces at the entrance. After a quick introduction, I was immediately brought into contact with several Everest Poker representatives – Rocio, Mariken, and Olaf – who chatted with me and showed me around the lounge. Shame on me for not getting in there sooner!

It quickly became apparent as to why Everest Poker is such a player favorite and why the room is always packed with players. Between the top-notch treatment the Everest-sponsored players receive and the perks afforded them through their relationships with the site, not to mention the personable company reps, there is no question as to where their impressive reputation comes from.

The lounge is a beautiful black-and-white themed room with offerings for sponsored players and those who won WSOP seats on Everest Poker. Three meals a day are available to them, along with a spacious room that provides a relaxing atmosphere in which players can escape the madness of the tournament area and Rio hallways. For further relaxation, a Wii station is set up for those looking for a non-poker gaming good time, and foosball tables are available as well. (A World Series of Foosball tournament is scheduled to take place prior to the end of the WSOP in the Everest lounge.) And the large plasma screens are on to allow players to soak up some sporting events, such as the Euro Cup that drew huge crowds to the TVs earlier in the week.

On an elevated platform, there is a stylish Everest Poker table for those who wish to hone their skills a bit before entering a tournament. Since many of the players associated with Everest are predominantly online players, they can not only become more familiar with live play in the lounge, but the Everest team is always there to help with pointers, lessons, and advice. The coaching is available to all Everest players, but the team is also there to assist with other needs for first-time Vegas visitors and those who are a bit uncomfortable being so far from home. From what I was able to see and hear, this is customer service at its best.

If you haven’t signed up to play on Everest Poker yet, there is no time like the present. And from this writer’s impressions, there is no site that treats its players as well. Though U.S. players are not allowed on the site due to U.S. government restrictions, European customers are flocking to the site, and the reasons are obvious.
