What is Betcoin Poker?
I always just surf around looking for new things poker while I am on-line and I just happened to find Betcoin.
I signed up immediately, deposited a small BTC amount from my Coinbase account and boy was I surprised………
You only need a e-mail and user name, no other personal details are needed.
The ease of Depositing and Cashing out using Bitcoins only cannot be emphasized enough, it is the way to play poker on-line in this day and age.
I also got a 100% Deposit Bonus (up to a 1 BTC limit) and 2 free chips when I deposited.
Each chip is worth 1/1000th of a BTC on Betcoin, So a .05 BTC deposit is worth 50 chips on Betcoin Poker.
BTC’s have been averaging about $550 to $600 each, so a .05 deposit is about $25 to $30 in U.S. value today.
I found a complete Poker room, Casino and Sportsbook all using Bit Coins and Bit Coins only.
The software and download is very familiar, in fact it is the very same software used by the Winning Poker Network (home of Americas Cardroom).
(Editors Note: My suspicions were confirmed when Bet Coin added tournaments hosted by the Winning Poker Network in July 2014, Bet Coin now offers the best poker tournament schedule a Bit Coin poker Player can find anywhere online.)
Betcoin has many promotions available to players including contests and bonus chips to players who play the most ring game hands daily, play most consecutive days, bad beat jackpot, most tournaments played daily.
As a new room they are looking to draw new players and have introduced a great feature on their guaranteed tournament schedule, every GTD tournament only requires 3 players to run, no matter what the guarantee prize pool is, look for extreme overlays until the player population grows.
Checking out the lobby, it looks like there players there. One tournament had 70 players participate, so the player pool is growing.
I’m going to put in a evening of play on Betcoin and I’ll let you know how I do and what I think later, will I see you there?
