Player Traffic

Noble Poker is part of the iPoker network and offers enough player traffic at off-peak times to cover most players’ needs. The less popular Omaha games do not attract many players until the peak periods. In recent times Noble has grown due to affiliate advertising, several high profile professional players are now part of the poker room.
