Globalpoker.com the new generation of pokersite

We are a new pokersite that uses the Sweepstakes model. Play our cashgames and our tournaments, and cashout your winnings thru PayPal.

You purchase our Goldcoin packages and we will give you the same amount in free $weeps, which you use at our cash game tables. We only just started about 2 months ago, but already over 1000 players cashed out over $120,000 in winnings.

This weekend we are running a superbowl $10,000 freeroll, with the only requirement that you have to play 300 flops at minimum $0.05/0.10 limit.

We will be here and answer any of your questions and to help you in any way we can.

How long do you expect it to take before Paypal catches on to this? Do you have a plan for what happens then?

Hello, Tapirboy. Global Poker is very much aware that PayPal do not allow any gambling transactions. Therefore, considering we've got PayPal as our payment method it's a guarantee that what we're offering to our members is a legit online gaming. This is exactly the same as how Chumba Casino does their payments for a couple of years now and haven't encountered any issues with PayPal. Let's not forget that both are under the same umbrella of VGW.

Hey'a, NerdSuperfly! Thanks for the welcome Like I said, gambling transaction is a no no with PayPal. To understand better our business model and what makes us legit, see this post from one of our threads...

- You can play with two currencies, Gold Coins and Sweeps Cash.
- When you buy Gold Coins we give you bonus Sweeps Cash free of charge.
- Gold Coins let you play for fun, but switch to Sweeps Cash and you can play for REAL MONEY!
- Sweeps Cash wins can be legally cashed out in the US because they are FREE!

Re: Globalpoker.com the new generation of pokersite where you can cashout your winnings thru Pa

Do you get "Sweeps cash" if you do not buy "Gold Coins?"

Seems if you have to buy gold coins to get the "sweeps cash" to play for real money then this is just an end around that is not a viable loophole, unless someone wants to open a play casino in their town because people are gambling with turnips (not money) but to have turnips to play they need to buy in with real money...


I certainly get how models liek this can last for a while, usually until organizations like Paypal look into it more, unless there is more to the system than your post suggests.

Hello Monteroy, new players who will sign up will get free 10K Gold Coins and $2 $weeps, after that, you need to purchase gold coins to get $weeps.

What is the exchange rate from Gold Coins to Sweeps, and can these initial 10K in coins be used in that mix? What is the rate to buy coins?

Re: Globalpoker.com the new generation of pokersite where you can cashout your winnings thru Pa

As others have said should do something about the rake when starting tables maybe more challenge points? I really like the model of having descent amount freerolls like the weekly 1500 and daily 500 for raking 100 hands for the 500 daily. Software pretty stable, wish I had found the site couple of months ago

Quick cashouts and quick responses from support are also appreciated. I have noticed a lot of multi accounters hope something can be done in that regard.

Yeah, I was asking the above to get a better feel for how badly it will be abused by those who create 100 free accounts even for a couple bucks (create 100 Gnome accounts and chip dump etc). Hopefully they have some security policies to help avoid this problem, and best of luck to those participating there.

Interesting model. Given low traffic, any chance at getting husngs added? Only need 2 players to start them!

Hi! Actually there is no exchange rate from Gold coins to Sweeps because they are in different currency and also it's not possible to be mix. Our lowest rate to buy coins is $5 equivalent to 25,000 Gold Coins plus $5 free Sweeps. You can check it on our website the list of amount to buy Gold Coins.

Gold Coins are completely useless as anything but a mechanism to "buy" "free" money. They have games in them but they're purely play money, they can't be exchanged for anything.

Re: Globalpoker.com the new generation of pokersite where you can cashout your winnings thru Pa

Fair enough. Others can debate whether that is a way around having real money games (seems to me it is not, but I admit I am not up to date on whatever technicalities might exist).

I would be curious how they will stop the hoards of people who will create tons of accounts for the free 2 bucks. All sites that have instant bankroll type promotions suffer from that, even for trivial amounts of money, and for a new site that can really impact the games.

Hello Tapirboy, Good Day! It's not actually useless. You can play it so you can be able to register in our Daily Gold Coins Challenge $100 Freeroll. Just play using gold coins and once you reach 50 Flops you are eligible to register for that tournament and win REAL MONEY. Also, you can buy different Avatars using gold coins. We will add more exciting twist in our Gold Coins currency in the near future so better watch out.

Right now we're on the process of adding exciting features on the site. Who knows we'll have HU SNGs soon. One thing's for sure though; while we're on the process of improving the site, we would be glad to hear suggestions from you all as it'll help us become better in this field of gaming entertainment.

You're just in time ZeckoRiver. The site is new and we've got a long road ahead of us. So, sit back and enjoy the ride while we make it more fun and exciting for you all. Your suggestion is well noted for our site's improvement.

I'd appreciate it if there were a "Are you sure you want to leave this page" warning. I have a tendency to hit the back button and lose my tables.

You can just click Cancel or you may press "esc" on your keyboard if that happens again.

No, when I hit back on my browser (Chrome) from the lobby, it leaves Global Poker completely. There's no opportunity to do anything except rejoin and try to find the tables I was on.

You don't need to click the "Back" button on your browser once your playing in a certain table. Simply click the "Lobby" button on the upper left side of the screen then you will able to view the Lobby Page. When you need to go back to your previous table, select the tab (name of table) near the "Lobby" button. You can actually open multiple tables then navigate tru the tabs.

I realize that I don't need to. (And in fact, shouldn't.) But sometimes I do it reflexively anyway. It would be nice to not have that ruin my session and I'm pretty sure adding an "are you sure" popup is a reasonably easy script to add because lots of other sites have it.

yep, this site has been warned about on reddit too.

Warning about global poker and your paypal and cashout payments

Probably obvious but don't bother playing on globalpoker.com

If you had you would see that they have fairly solid backing considering it's a US-facing poker site, and they have came here and tried to be open and even offered everyone a few dollars to gamble on while testing out their site. The sweepstakes poker thing isn't exactly brand new either, it's been going on for a few years now.

Is it worth switching your whole roll over to? Obvs no. Is it worth a try? Yeah probably, since it's likely very soft due to how new the site is and randoms gambling up the free $2 promo...unless you're crushing the games on the bigger sites or something.

Not shilling for them, it's just far too early for anyone to judge the site without some rock-solid info. Tbh I'm kinda curious how things play out for them with this sweepstakes format.
