Bovada Ups the Ante For Poker Players – Introduces Innovative Welcome Bonus

One of the most popular online gaming sites where people can play poker online is Poker.bovada.lv. Bovada, which has been making waves in the gaming community mainly due to their wide selection of casino games and the strength of their well-respected sports betting platform. Another reason that this site has enjoyed such a large amount of awareness among online gaming patrons is due to the fact that Bovada is among one of the only legal online casinos that can be joined by both Americans and Canadians. The company has recently made headlines yet again; this time offering an impressive one hundred per cent signup bonus for all new members.

One of the significant aspects of this bonus is that it will match any deposit up to one thousand dollars by one hundred per cent. This is notably different from many other sites that only offer partial matched bonus amounts. Bovada has caught the eye of the online casino community as representing one of the most generous platforms currently on the market. While Bovada was already considered by many to represent some of the best poker online gaming available, this offer has certainly increased their reputation substantially.

The mechanics of the bonus are quite simple. A player will first need to register through Bovada. After registration is complete, he or she will then be able to deposit cash directly into their account. Another interesting feature of this bonus is that it will include anyfunds that are deposited within the first twenty-four hours of opening a new account. So, a player can choose to deposit four hundred dollars and should he or she wish to deposit an additional four hundred, Bovada will match both amounts by one hundred percent. Therefore, the player has already doubled their money before even entering an online poker room.

Another aspect that will surely catch the public’s eye is that players will also be able to earn valuable poker points with each dollar that is matched. These points can be used towards ongoing promotions, lucrative competitions, prizes and tournaments. Obviously, the amount of points directly correlates with the amount deposited; the larger the amount, the more points earned. In this respect, Bovada has invented quite a unique system that will help players increase their chances of winning these points.

Simply stated, the more one plays, the more that one will earn. As the bonus will be valid for the first sixty days of game play, participants will have the chance to accrue up to a staggering five thousand bonus points during this period. This is, of course, associated with the maximum matched bonus of one thousand dollars. Players should also be aware that for every dollar matched, he or she will receive five bonus points.

The bonus issued will relate to achieving certain “levels” of poker points and this is based on a graduated scale. For instance, when a player garners fifty poker points, a bonus of ten dollars is issued and credited to the account the very next day. When one reaches two hundred and fifty points, an impressive forty dollars will be issued. On the top end of the scale, if one succeeds in gaining five thousand poker points, a massive one thousand dollars will be directly credited to the account. The end result is an unheard of gaming experience that has become the hallmark of Bovada Poker. Further details and an easy to understand chart of what the Bovada signup bonus entails can be found on their easy-to-use and highly navigable site. These bonuses can be thought of as giving all participants the ability to play free poker and yet still earn cash prizes.

While to play poker online in the US is still a rather new concept for avid gamers, the popularity of Bovada may indeed signal a paradigm shift in the online gaming policies currently espoused by the government. Some analysts believe that the popularity of Bovada illustrates the fact that more such sites should be made available to Americans. So, the day may very well come when similar opportunities are offered by additional companies. Until then, fans can enjoy playing free online poker games and the chances of winning valuable bonuses should they wish to up the ante and play for money. Either way, it truly appears that Bovada is paving the way within the online poker community, offering innovative new products such as Zone Poker and interesting promotions such as this one which keep their ever-growing fan base coming back for more.

Soda Poker, A Whole New Way Of Enjoying Online Poker!

A new multilingual poker room has just been launched by one on the main online poker publishers with the intention of becoming an alternative to the current online poker monopoly.

POKER hit the web in the mid 00’s and has since never ceased to grow in popularity. But governments around the world have decided that now is the time to impose regulations on online gambling and as a result you may have noticed that playing poker with real money is getting tougher and tougher (especially if you are living in the US!).

In the mean time, playing poker with virtual chips on social networks has never been as trendy, fun and easy! Don’t deny it; even your mom and your little sister are on it… These so called social poker games owe their popularity to the fact that while being built around a game you usually find in a casino; because you can’t cash out your winnings, for legislators, it’s not gambling so you (and the companies running them) are alright with them.

Now the companies running these models are seriously considering adding cash out options once the game will be regulated, and the companies running real money poker rooms are looking at social poker games as a way of not only offering a different version of the game, but also penetrating virgin territories such as social networks or mobile devices.

It’s going to be a war of the worlds when these gaming giants collide, but undoubtedly poker players will come out as winners, as the competition will generate new products and new offers for the end users…

In the mist of it all, Cmedia, a company based on the Spanish coast of Barcelona has launched Soda Poker, a social poker room that aims to offer a serious alternative to other poker rooms.

The name Cmedia may not ring a bell, but if you have ever been on a website related to poker or any other form of online gambling, chances are you were on one of theirs: with over 1000 websites online, they are amongst the biggest online gambling publishers in the world… so you can trust they know what they are doing when it comes to online poker. They are the people behind Freepoker.org and Pokerholdem.com.

Soda Poker is easy because unlike any other Texas Holdem poker site you can register and play for free in just a few clicks. It’s quick, easy and simple. It gets you seated at the poker table in just a few seconds without asking you for your bank account details, or your grand mother’s maiden name. And it’s freemium, meaning that every day; you can come back and play without having to deposit real money. But if you want to play the higher stakes you can always buy into the premium model and get more chips allowing you to play at a higher level. Because players don’t actually bet with real money, Soda Poker is a totally risk free game, you can just play for the fun of the game! It’s really the closest you’ll get to playing a home game with your friends, and that’s why it’s one of the fastest growing social poker communities and one of the hottest places to be dealt cards on the web right now!

Half of Online Gambling Sites Licensed Outside UK ‘Safe’ Jurisdictions

The online gambling industry continues to expand with an estimated 5 million new player accounts being created each year, despite the risks that player’s face from unreliable sites.

Many regions such as Alderney, Malta and Gibraltar were approved for addition to the UK Gambling Commission’s ‘whitelist’. The purpose of the whitelist is to approve only the jurisdictions that have sufficient regulation in place to ensure player protection. Licenses from other regions are considered potentially unsafe for reasons such as lack of appropriate regulation, and not providing satisfactory mediation channels for resolving player complaints.

Only gambling sites with licenses issued by the whitelisted jurisdictions are allowed to advertise within the UK. While potentially risky sites in non-whitelisted regions may not advertise directly to UK citizens, they are still easily found through internet searches and online advertising.

An estimated 1,100 online gambling sites are operating with licenses issued from safe jurisdictions. At this time at least 900 gambling sites are operating with licenses from outside the UK whitelisted regions, while an even higher risk is associated with the many unregulated sites that hold no license and no system for player protection.

With thousands of online gambling sites available, finding the reliable operators becomes a challenge. Many players will fall for the tempting promotions being offered by less trustworthy sites, and a large number of player complaints are posted on online forums. Many times players deposit funds to a site and then later attempt to withdraw their winnings – only to have endless problems resulting in no payment being received. Sometimes operators claim to have technical or payment-processing problems causing repeated delays, while other times the player’s winnings are confiscated with little or no valid explanation.

Three recently launched sites aim to address this issue by reviewing only the most reliable online gambling sites, including only those with licenses in whitelisted jurisdictions.

www.Top20BingoReviews.co.uk – Bingo is increasingly popular online, with sites offering online chat so that players can keep the social experience of bingo even when playing at home.

www.Top20PokerReviews.co.uk – The rise of online poker continues as players take advantage of ‘freeroll’ tournaments as well as weekly tournaments with large guaranteed prize pools shared among the winners.

www.Top20Bookmakers.co.uk – Of course all the big UK bookmakers now have competent online operations to accept punter’s bets, with many offering free bets and money-back guarantees on certain events.

“Whether players are searching for bingo sites, poker rooms or online bookmakers, the problem remains the same – there are many shady operators with questionable ethics,” said Philip Jones, manager of UKZap.com

“Protecting players from these unscrupulous operators is the primary goal of our new sites, which aim to review only sites with valid licences and a history of player satisfaction, prompt payments and good customer support.”

In addition to reporting on the most reliable operators, these new review sites also help players to find operators with special features such as mobile playing options for iPhones, Blackberry and Android phones. Players will also find useful lists of sites accepting convenient deposit methods including Neteller and PayPal.

The Robots in Disguise Are Coming to Virgin Casino – Transformers Ultimate Payback

The multi-coin slotgame offers players the chance to experience an action packed battle between their favourite Transformers complete with authentic characters, voiceovers and the theme song from the cult science-fiction series! Players can reap the rewards along the way with the slot game’s 25-payline configuration, Transforming Wild symbols, free spins and bonus level.

Throughout the base game, players can multiply their winnings into fortunes by making an entire reel wild by revealing Optimus Prime and Megatron Transforming Wild symbols on the second and fourth reels. And if that’s not enough, the Cybertron Variable Wild symbol can offer up to a 10 x line multiplier.

Players can settle the ongoing battle between The Autobots and The Decepticons once and for all with the Ultimate Payback Bonus(TM) which is triggered by bonus symbols landing simultaneously anywhere on the first and fifth reels. Optimus Prime (leader of Autobots) or Megatron (leader of Decepticons) battle when a ‘Fight’ symbol is revealed anywhere on the fifth reel. Before the great battle commences players are tasked with the tough decision of selecting which robot they believe will win. Players can spin for free (maximum 100 spins) until one of the Transformers triumphs and if their chosen hero wins players can cash in on up to 3250 bonus credits.

As with all Virgin Casino games, players can also earn V-POINTS – Virgin Games’ loyalty points – every time they play.

London Lad Strikes It Lucky!

Following the success of last year’s poker festival in the city, Virgin Poker held its second Newcastle poker event at Aspers Casino over the weekend. Over 200 poker enthusiasts took part in the exciting two-day live tournament setting sights on the impressive prize pot of over £30,000.

Having won a place at the tournament via a €150 buy-in at Virgin Poker, players at the main event took part in a Texas Hold’em No Limit Freezeout extravaganza to compete for their share of the prize pot. Ross Javis, London based journalist who writes for Poker Player magazine was the chip leader as he entered the final table and maintained his lead throughout the final leg securing him the Virgin Poker festival title and the impressive top prize of £7,000. Kris McLackland from Newcastle put up a good fight and walked away with second place prize money of £5,500.

To add a Virgin twist to the tournament, players in the main event were given the chance to knock-out professional poker opponents whose heads carried bounties of fantastic Virgin giveaways. Prizes included Virgin Rally Driving Days & Virgin Hot Air Ballooning.

For those not lucky enough to win a seat in the main tournament, there were a variety of side events on offer to give everyone the opportunity to get involved – regardless of their poker playing abilities. Practice tables offered ‘live play classes’ for less experienced players, whilst a Wii bowling battle for those who still wanted to prove their competitive streak.

Joe Legge, Poker Manager for Virgin Games Poker, said: “It was great to return to Aspers Casino for a second time and bring the fun of the Virgin Games experience to the people of Newcastle. Local residents, poker professionals and the Virgin Games staff entered into the spirit of the weekend and dressed to impress – outfits included, Newcastle football strip, a Las Vegas show girl and another wore a horse’s head to celebrate the Grand National. It’s all slightly crazy but all part of the fun and what makes the festivals such a great experience!’

$200,000 bad beat jackpot waiting for one lucky poker player

Bad beat in poker is when you have a good hand that is a favorite to win beaten by another hand. “Most of the time it is a hand that caught a miracle draw on the river that should not have been played to begin with. This is more common in low limit games because many players have the any two cards can win mentality”. Said Robert, WalkerPoker professional advisor. “Many players will play any ace and a few players will play any suited cards regardless of the rank. Some players are calling stations that will enter the pot with marginal or terrible hands and then call all the way to the river in hopes making their draw. Occasionally they do make their hands and you suffer a bad beat.”

Bad beats are a normal part of poker that a good player learns to accept. WalkerPoker team decided to turn the bad luck into good luck and is holding a bad beat jackpot “competition”. If you happen to get a bad beat, which answers the requirements, you can win more than $200,000.

WalkerPoker.com is one of the fastest growing poker rooms in the poker world. Walker is offering games in all limits and around the clock tournaments with massive overlays. Walker Poker is a US friendly room.

WalkerPoker.com offers huge cash bonuses for new players. The site will go as high as $750 bonus on any first time deposit made and offers around the clock freerolls for players who want to play poker without risking their own money.
