Offering realistic game play, along with lavish promotions and a stacked tournament schedule are just a few reasons why people come to play at Cake Poker. Cake Poker’s successful growth is largely due to the fact they are constantly catering to their players through remarkably good game variety paired with endless bonuses and customer loyalty rewards. Not to mention they are one of the few online poker rooms still welcoming United States players.
Running on their own network, the moderately-sized online poker room continually keeps the action fresh by giving players different promotions each month – players never know when they might be treated to a Million Dollar Freeroll Series. Weekly $100K Guaranteeds, Monthly $250K Guaranteeds and even a $100K Gold Card Lottery always draw players. Overall, at least $15 Million in tournament cash prizes are awarded every month!
Cake Poker Bonus and Rewards:
Upon opening a new account, you are eligible for the Cake Poker maximum deposit bonus of 100% up to $500. Poker bonuses can be cleared by earning Gold Chips which are Cake Poker’s version of Frequent Player Points (FPP’s) by playing in ring and tournament games. 1 Gold Chip will be earned per $1 raked pot in ring games with a 3 point max per played hand. Tournaments yield 7 Gold Chips for every $1 paid in entry fees. Every Gold Chip is equal to $.06 in real money; about 8,333 Gold Chips are needed for the maximum $500 bonus to be released. Cake Poker gives you three months to clear your bonus amount and will release them into your account in $10 increments.
Gold Chips are a great way to get into selected events which is the only way to buy-in to them. The Gold Chip events offer a vast array of satellites as well as $75K and $150K Guarantees. In addition you can play your way into live major tournaments.
Unique rewards in Cake Poker’s loyalty compensation program are called Gold Cards – which can be won by players in ring tournaments and SnG’s. These cards can be used as entries in ring games and tournaments, Gold Card MTT’s and Lotteries or merchandise at the Cake Store. Be the first person to collect all 52 Gold Cards in a Cake Poker’s $52K Gold Card Jackpot and win the cash prize of $52K!
Other bonuses offered are Reload Bonuses and Refer a Friend with up to $100 in bonus cash. Cake Poker also allows you to combine all your bonuses together.
Cake Poker Tournaments:
Cake Poker’s tournament schedule is always chock- full of daily guaranteed tournaments, rebuys, bounty tournaments, freezeouts, freerolls, and shootouts. Buy-ins for daily guarantees begin at $3 +$.30 with $500K cash pools and $1K and $2K guaranteed prize pools for buy-ins beginning at $5 +$.50. Online qualifiers and satellites can win you entries into live events like the World Series of Poker (WSOP), World Poker Tour (WPT), and the Irish Winter Festival.
The majority of Cake Poker freerolls can only be entered into with Gold Cards or Gold Chips with the exclusion of the $500 Bankroll Freeroll which you can gain entry to via weekly satellites. A First Depositor Freeroll is offered as well for first time depositors. You could roll yourself into the Cake Poker Million Dollar Freeroll by winning their Million Dollar Freeroll Series Satellite.
During peak hours the online poker room generates traffic at about 5,000 players and offers loose table play. You can always expect a burst in traffic with their freerolls.
Cake Poker Game Variety:
Cake Poker offers No Limit, Pot Limit and Fixed Limit Texas Hold’em which is the main draw to the online poker room. Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo, 7 Card Stud and 7 Card Stud Hi/Lo games are offered as well. Fixed Limit games begin at $.02/$.04 up to $100/$200 and No Limit games begin at $.02/$.04 up to $50/100.
At this time, the high stakes action is very limited. Rake, however, is still a standard $3 maximum no matter how high the pot size. The “No Flop, No Drop” rule is also in place at all times at Cake Poker.
Cake Poker Software:
The software was designed by a video game programmer hence the high quality graphics and slick feel to the poker room. Navigate through the Cake Poker Lobby with ease and always be able to locate the game you want. Other features include large Four Color Decks, Auto Muck, Note Taking with color coding, Flop Percentages, Hand History and Customizable Avatars provided by live photographed models. Mutli-table play for up to four tables is available as well.
The software does not have a table resizing feature and it is not Poker Tracker Compatible if that is something that interests you.
