Carbon Poker Bonus Review
Established in 2005, Carbon Poker was re-launched in 2007 as a brand new poker skin which operates on the rapidly growing and US-friendly Merge Network. (For those who are unaware of Merge, they have been the fastest growing poker network, doubling in growth in the last year, becoming the 10th busiest network on the internet with an average of 10,000 players.
Carbon Poker is licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission and contains excellent table features, using vector software, which includes all-in percentages, smilies, chat box and rabbit-hunt. Overall, Carbon Poker is a top poker room and definitely one of the best for 2011.
New poker players that join Carbon Poker will receive a generous 100% up to $600 bonus. In addition to this, new depositors will be able to take part in exclusive $500 new depositor freerolls and promotions.
Carbon Poker Promotions + Freerolls
Carbon Poker used to be my favourite site for micro-stakes games back in the day. In addition to super soft cash games, you’ll regularly find a ton of GTD tournaments during the week with big fat overlays. The biggest weekly tournament at Carbon Poker is the Sunday $50k GTD. You’ll regularly find lots of other types of low stakes tournaments at Carbon Poker (with an average of $10 buy-ins) including Freerolls, Shoot Out Tournaments, Bounties and Live Events Satellites from $2. Other promotions at Carbon Poker include the Bad Beat Jackpot (currently worth $215,000), the $50,000 Grand Prix Points Race, Tourney King with $20,000 in GTD cash prizes, MTT leaderboards, Royal Flush Bonus, Re-load Bonuses and a lucrative VIP Rewards Scheme.
Clearing the Carbon Poker Bonus
The 100% up to $600 bonus is cleared in increments of $5 for every 375 VIP points that you earn. In other words, you’ll have to earn 75 VIP points for each bonus dollar cleared. You can earn VIP points either by playing cash games, MTTs or Sit and Gos (unfortunately we cannot find the exact rate that VIP points are earned).
Overall though, I’ve played at Carbon Poker numerous times in the last 5 years and have enjoyed it more than any other poker room. Carbon Poker’s table graphics are immense, enjoyable and you earn re-load bonuses and free coupons to tournaments several times per year.
VIP Rewards Scheme + Refer a Friend Bonus
Carbon Poker’s VIP Club offers an extensive range of promotions and cash back bonuses which are available to all types of players. You can earn cash back rewards for the VIP points that you accumulate, which differ depending on your VIP level. For example, at the highest level VIP Ether you will receive $875 cash back for every 25,000 Points that you knock up. Other VIP rewards include entry to exclusive freerolls (worth up to $3,500), points for cash and you can purchase gifts in the Carbon Poker Online Store.
Carbon Poker’s refer a friend scheme gives you $25 for every friend that you refer who makes a minimum $10 deposit and earns 250 comp points. To make it even better, both you and your friend will gain exclusive entry to the $2,500 Refer-a-Friend Freeroll!
