Global is now set for the biggest guarantee in the site’s history on Sunday. The SC540 Sunday Scrimmage Main Event Deepstack features a SC500,000 prize pool on the line.
How does Global Poker work and what’s available?
As a social poker site, Global Poker makes use of Gold Coins for free play. Players that purchase Gold Coins also receive Sweeps Coins, which can be used in separate tournaments and ring games. Unlike Gold Coins, these can also be redeemed for cash.
The platform is available in most US states and Canada. The Main Event now offers one lucky player the opportunity to turn some Sweeps cash into some serious real cash.
Sweeps Coins can be used for ring games, sit & go’s, multi-table tournaments, and major events like the Home Series. Players will find these poker variants on the site:
- Texas Hold’em
- Crazy Pineapple
Players don’t have to play Sweeps Coins, and can simply work on their game using Gold Coins. The Home Series offers events in both currencies.
Home Series exemplifies site’s growth
Since its launch in 2016, Global Poker has grown its player base to more than 1 million registered players. With the Coronavirus pandemic, even larger numbers of players have joined in the tournament action.
Prize pools and guarantees have also been steadily growing. For the Home Series, Global includes these guarantees:
- SC2 million – total for all Sweeps Coin events.
- GC70 million – total guaranteed for all Gold Coin events.
Gold Coin events have already awarded GC120 million with a week of the series still remaining.
Sweeps Coin players have already won SC1.22 million. There’s a good chance that the guarantee will be shattered with plenty more opportunities for poker players at home.
Last weekend, the Sunday Teaser and Scrimmage events produced massive numbers. More than 1,100 players jumped in the real money poker action for a share of more than SC200,000.
In the Scrimmage, Vermont player “Ryleo” took the title after more than six hours at the virtual tables. Along with his trophy, Ryleo added a cool SC27,075 to his player account.
Satellites for this Sunday’s Scrimmage can be found online for as little as SC1.50.
Extra incentives to play Global Poker Home Series
As one might expect from a social gaming platform, Global Poker goes the extra mile to promote its events. The site’s added promotions include:
- free tournament tickets
- social media competitions
- rewards for event winner
During the Home Series, the site is giving away numerous free tickets to satellite tournaments every day. Players can find these in promotional emails or on Global Poker’s social media channels.
Beyond the Sweeps Cash and Gold Coins prize pool, winners receive a Champions Pack. These include exclusive Global swag and a personalized Home Series trophy.
