Global Poker’s latest series features a fitting name for players stuck at home during the Coronavirus pandemic. The Home Series is already underway and runs through April 26 with SC2 million guaranteed.
A huge highlight of the series is the SC540 Sunday Scrimmage Main Event Deepstack on April 26. Players have a shot at a piece of the SC500,000 guaranteed prize pool. The entire schedule includes 28 Sweeps Coin and 28 Gold Coin events.
“We’re all currently experiencing a higher-than-usual level of uncertainty, and to provide a welcome and rewarding distraction, we’re making sure we offer the best poker experience while everyone stays at home,” Global Poker general manager David Lyons said. “It’s the best place to be at the moment, and we’re making sure of it for our poker players.”
A look at some Global Poker Home Series highlights
The Home Series is full of action and will offer Sweeps Coin buy-ins from SC33 to SC540. A major part of the online series are the Sunday Deepstack events.
Each Sunday in April, Global Poker will have some of its biggest guarantees in its history. Here’s a quick look at those:

Sweeps Coin events have a guarantee of at least $40,000. Most events are No Limit Hold’em tournaments, but a few Pot Limit Omaha events also dot the schedule. Here’s a look at all the Sweeps Coin events:

How does Global Poker work?
Global Poker is a legal sweepstakes poker site with more than one million players. The site offers an online social gaming experience and is free to play.
Unlike traditional social poker, however, players have an opportunity to redeem winnings for real cash. Players initially receive Gold Coins for free-to-play ring games and tournaments. They can also purchase additional Gold Coins as well.
As a bonus, players receive Sweeps Coins, which can be used in separate tournaments and ring games. Unlike Gold Coins, Sweeps Coins can be redeemed for cash prizes.
The site has grown in recent years and is also available to players in Canada, except for Quebec. Games available on the site include:
- Texas Hold’em – no limit and fixed limit
- Omaha – pot limit
- Crazy Pineapple – no limit
The Home Series becomes just the latest Global Poker tournament festival and many players will be ready. Online sites have reported massive numbers in recent weeks and this operator isn’t an exception.
“From all of us at Global Poker, we wish every one of our players all the very best during this challenging time for all of us,” Lyons said. “Stay safe, take care of yourself and your families, and if you want to play a little poker, we’ll be here.”
