Lots happening for online poker players at the moment, here is a quick roundup, focusing on the offshore sites and their offers for Feb 2015.
The good news is that payments are getting easier and easier for these sites, with improved credit card acceptance (first time) and new sites accepting Bitcoin too.
Carbon Poker, the flagship of the Merge Network, have always had great software and easy games. Now there is a tournament event (COPs) and a special offer of $10 in Sit N Go entry tokens on top of the already huge 200% welcome bonus.
COPs: This tournament event runs from Feb 8th and features games with buy-ins spread over 3 tiers. The prize pools are big ($3 million in guarantees) and there are plenty of qualifier games running right now to get you a seat in one of the big games. As more people start to join these events, the guarantees can only get bigger.
$10 SNG Tokens: This is for new players, and comes in the form of 2x $3.50c and 2x $1.50c tokens to play any of the different sit n go formats (double up, super-turbo, knockout and so on). Use coupon code FREESNGPK when you register, and you’ll get the tokens on top of the 200% matched bonus (max $5k), free HUD software and 1 month of video poker training.

$1 Million Guaranteed Tournament (is back!)
This event takes place on the 22nd of Feb at America’s Cardroom. After a successful launch during December, we are onto a second game. If this one goes well, I hope that this will become a regular feature – maybe even every quarter. If you have a smaller bankroll, then there are plenty of qualifier games which are already running. These go through different stages, so everyone can get involved.
America’s Cardroom also have the excellent ‘Beast’ and ‘Sit N Crush’ promotions to keep the bankrolls of their loyal players topped up.
They have also started to accept BTC (Bitcoin) deposits, giving you another option on top of credit cards and money transfer services.
No specific Feb promotions to share with you just at the moment. What Bovada have done is start to push their mobile poker offering very hard. Combined with their ‘recreational player model’ (anonymous games, no tracking tools, limited multi-tabling options), you’ll find this is easily the softest poker room still welcoming US players.

Talking of mobile games, I have set up a brand new website, which focuses on all forms of gambling (starting with poker, casino and sports betting) on mobile devices. There are already more than 350 pages up, and many more are already in the pipeline, check out www.hightechgambling.com for more.
