I had two different technical questions for their customer support team. The first had to do with their SSL certificate. The second was a question about how to remove the button that their software automatically adds to Internet Explorer. In both cases, I received prompt, courteous responses within an hour.
Gameplay with the iGlobalMedia software is solid. Very easy navigation within the lobby, and a very simple and easy to use play experience. Graphics and sound are both pleasant, you can definitely play this game for hours.
For giveaways, they offer a WSOP giveaway which is very nice.
