Overview
Victor Chandler is an established UK bookmaker that also runs a solid poker room. There is a wide range of games at Victor Chandler, with a lot of action at limits ranging from $.02-$.04 to $50-$100. No-Limit Hold'em games seem to be especially popular at Victor Chandler. VC's software is also fairly unique, with the cards appearing much larger than at most sites. Victor Chandler is part of the Apex network, so you will be playing against players from other sites as well.

Ease of Competition
I have not played much here, but the competition seems to be about average. Nothing especially too tough, but certainly not a cakewalk.

Cashouts
Victor Chandler has a fairly standard cashout policy, processing most cashouts within a couple of business days.

Bonuses
They have a decent signup bonus: 25% of your first deposit up to a bonus of $100. You need to use the promotional code: rainbow

However, the bonus is not as great as it sounds. You have to earn "Action Points" to work off your bonus dollars, and it seems like you have to play a lot more hands to earn this bonus than you do at other sites. You can also redeem action points for gifts and prizes, such as poker books.

Software
The software has its benefits and its drawbacks. On the one hand, some may like how they display the cards and chips. Others say that it is distracting and that the software seems more like a video game aimed at 10-year-olds. Nevertheless, the games are fairly fast, and you are allowed to play multiple games at VC.
