What is Global Poker?

Our sister site, PlayColorado, spoke with Global Poker general manager David Lyons earlier this month regarding what his company offers.

“Global poker provides a social poker experience similar to many other social gaming experiences out there,” Lyons said. “We have an added twist, a unique twist, which is that players can actually win prizes.”

Global Poker uses a “sweepstakes” model, not a “real money” model, making it legal to operate online not only in Colorado, but throughout the entire country.

 

Is Global Poker legal in Illinois?

Yes, Global Poker is legal in the Prairie State. In fact, Global Poker is legal throughout the United States.

Because Global Poker uses a “sweepstakes” model instead of a “real money” model, they are allowed to operate online in the US. The way it works is when you make a deposit your money goes toward Gold Coins. Equivalent to the Gold Coins is a currency known as Sweeps Coins. Sweeps Coins are available for free after users purchase Gold Coins.

 

Global Poker’s new Home Series

The Global Poker Home Series, which is dishing out 2,000,000 in guaranteed Sweeps Coins, is already underway.

The series will feature 28 home series Sweeps Coins events from now through April 26. All you have to do is create your account here, play poker online and win gold coins.

Global Poker’s Sunday Scrimmage will start at 100,000 Sweeps Coins and then will jump to a whopping 500,000 Sweeps Coins when the series concludes on April 26.
