Legal online poker in the United States? Yes, it's here!
Global Poker isn't just any other poker site; it has a unique sweepstakes model that allows them to offer their games in the US.
About Global Poker
You can buy virtual currency at Global Poker called Gold Coins. The virtual chips you play with cannot be directly withdrawn. Instead, when you purchase Gold Coins, you get bonus sweepstakes prizes in the form of $weeps Cash. These $weeps Cash you can use to buy yourself into special $weeps Cash tournaments and ring games. Everything you win there, you can cash out through PayPal as real cash prizes. If you play in a ring game, every pot is its own sweepstakes.
The Gold Coins you buy can be used on the special Gold Coin tables. You can win and lose these Gold Coins, but you can not exchange these for actual money.
The United States has a long history of sweepstakes and regulation is on every state individually. Every state has regulated sweepstakes, as big companies use this method for some of their promos. Any change in regulation would have its impact, not on just Global Poker, but on all the promotions run in the state that uses the sweepstakes model. So you can rest assured Global Poker is here to stay!
Global Poker works in your browser, so there are no specific apps you have to download. Whether you're trying to play on a Windows PC, you have a Mac, or want to play on your iPhone or iPad, just log in and start playing.
Depositing and Withdrawing
Global Poker isn't your typical online poker room where you deposit and cash out. Instead, you buy Gold Coins and cash out your sweepstakes prizes. Both buying the coins and cashing out goes through PayPal. The minimum you buy Gold Coins for is $10, the minimum you can cash out from is $50.
