is from Merge Gaming Network. This poker room
is gaining in popularity very rapidly. I signed up Carbon a few months ago and have mentioned a few of the reasons why I think the poker site is a good choice for players.
What impressed me the most about Carbon Poker was its software! The software used here gives the games at Carbon Poker a very rich feel without losing out on the user friendliness. I also liked the speed of the games and stylishness that was offered in the graphics. Overall, thanks to the software, which has great navigability, I enjoyed my gaming experience. This is not easy for a casino
to accomplish especially when you consider that Carbon Poker is a lot newer than the other sites.
Another factor that had me hooked was that I was offered an amazing sign-up bonus of $1000 at a 200% deposit match. Carbon Poker also gave me a chance to win $500 at 14 freerolls. Real money players get comp points with different types of rewards tied to it. Players have the option of picking up cool merchandise for the comp points earned. The merchandise gets delivered at your door, completely hassle free. I found this to be really impressive. The referral program at Carbon Poker gives players $25 for every referral. It doesn’t end there either, the player and the friend who is referred gets free entry to the $2500 Refer a friend freeroll. I have already recommended the casino to two of my gaming friends, one of whom has already signed up, giving me the much deserved bonus.
Another nice touch which I found on Carbon Poker is the “time bank”. What this does is allow players to accumulate time. Poker is about taking the right decision at the right time and sometimes most of us wish we had a little more time in our hands. A little more time is exactly what this feature gives us players. Players are able to accumulate time from their previous hands when they would have made quick decisions and then use the time saved up when the need arises. Now this gives a completely different meaning to the phrase ‘pressed for time’.
Carbon Poker also has a unique feature called “deal it twice.” This is optional and the two players concerned must agree to deal the river community and turn cards twice. What this does for players is increase their chances of more outs and also improve their existing hands. The possibilities are there for both the players hence the need for them to agree to go for the option. This is when it helps to refer your friends.
A number of multi-table games
are offered at Carbon poker. There are also plenty of sit and go tournaments as well. Overall, I believe that this poker room will appeal to all types of players, from the very small stakes player to the high stakes ones as well.
Carbon Poker has number of good things going for it and one of the most important ones has to be that it accepts US players like me. Players can make deposits using anyone of the 12 options which are available. The options include Mastercard
and many more. There are six withdrawal options which include checks and few of the gateways which are used for making deposits as well. Click2pay is the preferred option for withdrawals. Carbon Poker has e-mail and live chat support for its players.
Carbon Poker offers several promotions, bonuses, tournaments and events available for all players.
