PokerOk replaced Lotos Poker, which closed at the end of 2018, and is part of the GG Network. Since 2019, the new site has been operating in beta test mode and is gaining popularity. Old Lotos players do not need to register again. Money from Lotos accounts has been transferred to GGPokerOK.

The PokerOk review should start with advice for former Lotos clients. Those who previously registered at "Lotus" and now want to continue playing at GGpokerOK while maintaining their balance, do not even need to go to the site of the room - just update the Lotos client program.
According to some players, the updated software has become more pleasant.
