Players from the U.S. are welcome at Cake Poker and credit card deposits have a very high success rate. The software is easy to navigate and rarely has any lag or other glitches. Cake Poker is the home of the $1,000,000 freeroll series which is something you would expect to find only at the large poker rooms. The competition is generally pretty soft so this is a great site for a solid player looking to build a bankroll.
Software – Cake Poker’s software has a “basic” feel but it is everything a poker player really needs, fast and very functional. The graphics look good and navigating though the site is simple. The tournament interface has a unique feature I don’t recall ever seeing, the estimated length of a tournament which is usually right on the money. The lobby interface has the standard statistics such as average flop percentage, pot size and hands per hour. The software also allows you to easily play at multiple tables at once.
Bonuses – When you use our bonus code CASHMONEY you will receive a 100% match up to $500. This is the highest deposit bonus possible at Cake Poker. This is placed into your bonus account and will be paid in increments of $10. Every frequent player point (FPP) you earn is worth $.06.
Promotions – Cake Poker offers many unique promotions that add a lot of value to the site. The most popular is the Gold Card Series. Gold Cards each represent a card in a normal deck of playing cards. Players are randomly given Gold Cards when they are playing at the real money tables. You can use these card in many ways. You can trade them in for merchandise, cash or tournament buy-ins. There is also a daily Gold Card lottery that awards players with cash prizes and free tournament entries. You will also receive Gold Chips for your play at the real money tables. The more you play the faster you earn Gold Chips. Cake Poker is also home to the $1,000,000 freeroll series. This is a series of ten $100,000 freerolls that are held monthly.
Traffic – With around 5,500 players at the tables during peak hours you won’t have any trouble finding a Hold’em table at the levels you like to play. The Omaha table also get a good amount of traffic. If you’re a 7 card stud fan this isn’t the poker room for you as the tables are usually empty.
Competition – Cake Poker is well known for their soft juicy tables. You can find many inexperienced players at the small to middle stakes Hold’em tables. Most are drawn to Cake Poker for the chance to play in the $100,000 freerolls.
Customer Service – Cake Poker only offers email support at this time but as the site continues to grow I would expect some other methods to be added.
