Waiting on my ACH deposit now!
I actually couldn't find the rollover requirement on their site. I'm sure it's there somewhere, but fair point they probably should make it clearer as I'm sure alot of newer online players are here. FYI in the future all sites that I've seen require a rollover. It's typically not hard to do as you can tell by how close you were. Nothing shady about it.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Gotcha gotcha, checked my bank tonight and I see their ACH:

"ACH CREDIT WORLDPAY AP LTD PAYMENT ON 12/06" for $50.00. Their support is pretty responsive. They have earned my respect for now. Going to make a second deposit .

What is the most efficient way for Canadians to purchase gold coins in terms of avoiding currency conversion fees? Either starting from CAD or bitcoin.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

For cash games is the currency USD or is it the special software currency Sweeps Coins?

How much SC = 1 USD ?

I see.

So if you're going to cashout the site converts your coins over and pays you out in USD? Not that I find it confusing just like to know what im getting into and I hate surprises.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

No, the coins have no monetary value...hit switch currency at the top right of the page. SC=money; Gold coins=Play money. Look at the cashier option as well and it's pretty self explanatory from there. I deposit $5 and get 25k gold coins (play money) and $5 SC (money money). Just play in SC currency for real money that can be cashed out.

Gold Coins are used for play money and buying avatars? Those are the two uses?

Gold coins can also be used to fulfill 25 flops seen and 500 flops seen for a couple of tournaments, the 500 for the $7,500 Guaranteed.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

can someone explain the whole gold coin and sweep coin thing. I can't read through 100 pages of stuff to try and find my answer.

So what are gold coins used for? are they just play money? only sweep coins have real cash out value? or can you convert gold coins into sweep coins? or can you earn sweep coins with gold coin play?

someone want to try and simplify this for me?
in the original post it says gold coins have no value and can't be cashed out? so what is their purpose? only sweep coins can be cashed out? so how do you earn sweep coins?

clarification please.

Yes

Yes

No

Quote:

Mostly no. You can't generate SC from GC games. There are a couple of tournaments every day that you can only register for if you've played a certain number of GC hands that day. But the buyins are still in SC. There is no way to generate SC from GCs alone.

Quote:

GCs are play money, SCs are dollars


Quote:

Correct

Quote:

By selling GCs, the play money, and not SC, the real money, Global has figured out how to circumvent online gambling laws.

Quote:
only sweep coins can be cashed out?
Yes

Quote:
so how do you earn sweep coins?
When you buy GC, they "give" you a matching amount of SC. You can play poker with the SC and if you win, you get more SC. There is no way to 'earn' it, like a video game or anything, because it's the real money equivalent. You either deposit it or win it from playing poker.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

First time cashing out on Global, can someone point me to posts that talk about others experiences/what to expect? Wondering how long it takes and what the best process is when cashing out. Tyty

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I’ve been giving Global a try. Is my understanding of $1 being equal to 1 SC correct? In the few days I’ve had my account open they’ve sent me multiple additional deposit offers like “$30 deposit gets you 50 SC”. Is this effectively just getting $20 free on top of your $30 deposit? Just making sure I understand it correctly. Thanks!

Yes you are correct. Sometimes they offer promotions like this.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

This may have been answered somewhere, so I apologize if it has. I know that Global does not allow a HUD but am I able to track hands on Global by importing them to PT or HEM? Also this is unrelated to Global Poker, but is either PT or HEM free for micro stakes or do you have to buy the full version regardless of stakes? Thanks.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

I was playing cash game and had 4 tables freeze. My money is stuck on those tables and won't go back into my cashier. I tried logging out and back in but it just automatically opens the frozen tables again. Has anyone experienced this?

If I play 4+ tables I can't run any videos on the side, makes it not load/stall out. Any fix for this? Tyvm

Gotta have a faster processor and keep your machine cool. Many tables takes a lot of processing power on global.

Re: General questions Globalpoker.com

Not sure if this has been address but I have a weird problem with the notes on Global and was wondering if anyone else had this problem or if there is a fix for it?

When I play multiple tables and have them tiled, the note system only opens for my top row of tables. For example if I am playing 8 tables, the top 4 will work fine with notes but the notes on the bottom 4 will not even open when I click the players name. Is this just a glitch in the tile mode? Anyone else have this issue?

I have this problem too and wish I knew a fix for it because it is quite annoying. Top row of tables always work for note taking but not the bottom. Global has quite a few glitches they need to fix.
