Global Poker Increases Guarantees Again Despite Overlays

World's Fastest Growing Poker Room Continues With Gold Rush Leaderboards In August


Last week, Global Poker announced their gold rush promotion for the month of August, awarding 50,000 Gold Coins daily, along with another 250,000 weekly and 1,000,000 for the month.

Players showed up for Gold Coin Challenges in record numbers, but the site still reported more than a 41 percent overlay on their guarantees. As a response, Global Poker is actually INCREASING their guarantee on the SC$7,500 tournament to SC$10,000!

The way it works is simple. Just take part in Gold Coin Challenges and you’ll see yourself start to climb the daily, weekly and monthly leaderboards.

Just by seeing 50 Gold Coin flops each day, you’ll get access to over SC$20,000 in guaranteed tournaments. It doesn’t matter what stakes you play since every player has a shot to move up the leaderboard.

Check out the payouts for making the top 10 of each leaderboard below.

Rank& Daily Weekly Monthly
1 10,000 50,000 200,000
2 8,250 30,000 140,000
3 6,750 20,000 90,000
4 5,500 12,500 75,000

9 2,500 6,000 15,000
10 2,000 5,000 10,000

The monthly leaderboard is currently being led by a player with the name ‘Barn Yard,’ but there is still plenty of time to catch up with poker action the entire month of August.

Join the action in the fastest-growing poker room in the world with Global Poker.

If you have been around poker players in the United States lately then you have probably heard about Global Poker. The new kid on the block as far as online poker sites go has taken the poker world by storm. After launching recently, Global Poker has cemented itself in the top 10 sites worldwide for player volume and as the fastest growing site for US players.

It doesn’t matter what your stake or preference is, Global Poker has something for you. Using their virtual currency of $weeps Cash players can enjoy both full ring and shorthanded games from stakes of $0.02-$0.04 right up to $10-$20 in both Texas hold’em and Omaha.

You may be asking yourself “what is $weeps Cash and what is it about them that has made Global Poker the most popular new site among US poker players?” The good news is that it is actually a simple process which more and more players are using to play for real cash prizes.

You can jump onto the Global Poker website and purchase a virtual currency called Gold Coins using your PayPal account. You can then use these Gold Coins to enter into ring games, sit n go’s and tournaments. Gold Coins work much the same as play money chips on other poker sites, meaning that you can accumulate them and use them in different games but they can never be redeemed for real money.

As a way to promote the sale of Gold Coins, players are given bonus sweepstakes prizes by way of $weeps Cash with every Gold Coin purchase that they make. The $weeps Cash can be used to buy into the $weeps Cash tournaments and ring games however any of these that are accumulated or won can be cashed out through PayPal as real cash prizes.
