Carbon Poker launched online operations in 2007. Players from all 50 U.S. states are welcome to play and there are a lot of convenient deposit options. The world class software offers many unique features you can’t find at any other poker room. The large first deposit bonus attracts a lot of new and inexperienced players so the tables are relatively soft. Their freeroll line-up is probably the best you can find on the web. There are also some great guaranteed tournaments at Carbon Poker with overlays on a regular basis.
Software – Carbon Poker’s software is fast and offers a lot of unique features. The most popular is the “Rabbit Hunt” feature. If all other players fold you can have the dealer show what community cards would have came. Then there is the “Expose 1 Card” feature that allows you to show only one hole card when you fold/lose. When you win a special tournament you can even have a special trophy placed on your avatar for everyone to see.
Bonus – When you make your 1st deposit at Carbon Poker you will receive a 200% match up to $500. The money will be placed in your bonus account and will be released in increments of $10. You can also receive an instant 15% if you use PIN DEBIT to make your first deposit.
Promotions – Carbon Poker’s most notable promotion are the massive freerolls. There is a $1,000 freeroll running Monday through Friday that only requires you to earn 1,000 comp points in the previous 72 hours. Weekends at Carbon Poker consist of a $2,000 freeroll with the same requirement stated above on Saturday and a huge $10,000 freeroll on Sunday, you must earn 2,500 comp points in the last 169 hours to qualify. On the last Sunday of every month they also host a $50,000 freeroll for all members that have earned 5,000 comp points for the whole month.
I should have probably made a “Freeroll” category because I’m not done yet. When you make your first deposit at Carbon Poker you will receive 14 entries into the daily $500 New Depositor Freerolls. All new players will also receive free entry into the $50 New Player Freerolls, a deposit is not required and they run 4 times a day. Finally all players are welcome to play in the standard $50 freerolls that run every 4 hours.
Traffic – There are around 6,000 players at the tables during peak hours. The Hold’em tables hold a majority of that traffic but the Omaha tables are pretty popular as well.
Competition – The freerolls and other promotions attract a lot of new and inexperienced players. Soft Hold’em tables are a dime a dozen at Carbon Poker which translates into easy money for you.
Customer Service – Carbon Poker offers email and live chat support. The staff is very helpful and always respond right away.
