Why play at Cake Poker?

Cake Poker is the flagship site at the core of the Cake Network of sites. Its popularity has rocketed recently as more and more players have been drawn to it for its wealth of features and benefits that make it a great all-round contender. Notably it accepts players from the USA and also is well known for offering outstanding customer service. And the rewards are here too - firstly with it's current offering of a $4000 first time deposit bonus for new players and also from the Cake Poker Gold Chip player reward scheme.


Cake Poker software

Cake offers a very nice, attractive poker client, with clear graphics even when the table is at its minimum size. This is good news for the multitabler (you can play up to 10 at once) who wants to tile their poker games without losing information (you can also choose to cascade). The Cake Poker lobby is really well designed, making it easy to use to use the filters to find the game of your choice. A really cool feature is the ability to change the themes; you can change the colour of things like the table felt, the carpet and cards etc. This means you can get the poker client looking the way you want it, making it a real pleasure to play poker on.

Cake Poker welcome bonus

Cake Poker is currently offering a superb first time deposit poker bonus, matching 200% of what you deposit, up to $2000, making this a really sweet offer.

How do you earn the bonus? Every time you make 83.33 player points, $5 bonus is earned. $1 raked cash pot = 1 point, $1 in tourney fees - 7 points. The more real money poker you play (and the higher the stakes you play), the faster you're going to earn this bonus.

New players also have the chance to play in the New Depositor Freeroll, which has a $500 prizepool and takes place every Saturday.

Cake Poker player reward and loyalty program

Cake offers a really attractive loyalty scheme. How it works is you earn Frequent Player Points (or FPPs) during your play on the site. For example $1 in tournament fee earns 7 of them, so if you played an $11 SNG you'd earn 7 FPPs. For cash games it's 1 FPP per $1 in rake.

What happens is as you accumulate FPPs, they automatically convert into what's called Gold Chips - every time you hit 100 FPPs you'll get 1 Gold Chip. This is where it gets good as Gold Chips can be used to buy entry into various tournaments or choose cash bonuses. To give you an example, 40 Gold Chips would 'buy' you $10 in bonus cash. Or you could use 130 to buy entry into the nightly $2000 Guaranteed Bounty tournament.

But, that's not all - the other thing you can earn yourself are Gold Cards. These are given out at cash tables once the rake hits a certain amount. Gold Cards can have various values, and indeed some of them actually increase in value the longer you hold on to them.
