Large, well established, sites
Since virtually every online poker room has a presence in the UK players there can be very discriminating towards which rooms they choose, sticking with the largest, and the most well-respected rooms. For UK players there is never a reason to settle on an inferior room because of a lack of options.
Players should look for rooms with the proper games, traffic, and licenses that are the hallmark of all good online poker sites.
Rake, rakeback, bonuses, and promotions
Since beggars can be choosers in the UK, players can also go in search of rooms with the least amount of rake, and the best rakeback percentages, bonuses and promotions.
Along with finding good promotions, bonuses and rakeback deals, there is nothing that will increase your win-rate more than soft competition.
Deposit Options and Withdrawal Speed
For UK players you want to make certain that the room you intend to play accepts the funding source you intend to use and doesn’t impose any hidden fees on these transactions. There is also the matter of how quickly you can receive your funds when you decide to cash out.
UK players have plenty of rooms to choose from and it will basically come down to finding the perfect balance between the considerations I have listed and outlined above. For some players certain things will take precedence and will likely be the driving force behind their decision of which online poker site to join, but for other players with more options it’s all about finding the very best place to play.
