Global Poker, Sweep Coins and Gold Coins
Global Poker is a sweepstakes-based online poker room that is available to poker players in Canada as well as 49 states in the United States, excluding Washington State. They are operated by the same company that runs the popular Chumba Casino, which also uses Sweeps Coins.
When players make a purchase, they receive Gold Coins and bonus Sweeps Coins, which can be exchanged for cash prizes at a rate of 1 Sweep Coins per $1.
Progressive bounty tournaments new to Global Poker
With the latest GOAT series, Global Poker is pushing a new type of tournament on the online poker room — progressive bounty tournaments. A fixture on larger sites, progressive bounty tournaments have gained in popularity in recent years for the extra element they bring to the game.
In addition to the standard prize pool, players will receive prizes each time they eliminate a player from the tournament. In general, half of the prize is allocated towards the standard prize pool while the other half is reserved for bounties. For the bounty portion of the prize pool, 50% is credited to the player while the other 50% is added to the head of the player who knocked out his opponent.
