    Hey guys,

    We are excited to team up with Global Poker to bring you the DFS Poker Open! With no sports to follow we think this is the perfect time to come together as a community and play some online poker. We’ll have a nice prize pool on this tournament, but perhaps even more importantly we’ve got 15+ fun bounties on the heads of various DFS and poker personalities.

    First, let’s start with what is Global Poker?

    GlobalPoker is a sweepstakes-based US online poker site that has been in operation since 2016. Rather than buying in for cash, players purchase Gold Coins to fund their account. Prizes won on the site can be redeemed as cash and paid back to your bank account.

    STEPS:

    1. Go to Global Poker (Make sure you click through this link or one of our links on Twitter)

    3. Click “Buy Coins” in the top right-hand corner and purchase your Sweep Coins (Watch video below)

    4. After you have completed your purchase, click the “Switch Currency”. From there, click the refresh icon next to “SC” and you should see your purchase amount there
    5. Click the Tournaments tab. From there, search DFS in the search bar and the DFS Poker Open will come up (make sure to switch the currency to SC from gold coins first).
    6. Enter the tournament by using this password and 25SC!
    7. Have fun and enjoy knocking out some of your favorite DFS personalities and winning their bounties!

    Global Poker FAQs

    Is Global Poker Legit?
    Thanks to their unique sweepstakes model, players in the United States and Canada (excluding Quebec) can play on GlobalPoker.com. Unlike a traditional online poker site, players do not make deposits but rather purchase Gold Coins which have no monetary value. With each purchase, players receive Sweeps Coins which has a 1:1 value to real dollars when redeemed.

    How do you get Sweeps Coins on global poker?
    Sweeps Coins is obtained on Global Poker with a purchase of Gold Coins. Depending on the amount of Gold Coins purchased, players will receive free sweepstakes entries by way of Sweeps Coins.

    Is Global Poker played with real money?
    Technically, no. There are two currencies in use on Global Poker. Gold Coins have no monetary, but Sweeps Coins can be redeemed for cash prizes – usually at a 1:1 ratio.

    Is Global Poker safe?
    Part of a publicly-traded company (VGW Holdings), Global Poker is whitelisted by Facebook and licensed by the Gaming Authority in Malta. Global Poker is a safe option for US online poker players.

    How do I claim my bounty?
    Global Poker will contact RG with a list of the usernames that knocked out someone with a bounty. If you knock out someone with a bounty, please post your Global Poker username in this thread with the person(s) you knocked out. We will then contact you via RG DM’s to work on getting you your prize.

    Enjoy and good luck on the felt!

    Says 49 of 50 states legal, know which one isnt?

    Also this seems weird, you have to buy “coins” with actual money, you use the coins on the site, and then you exchange the coins for cash? So why is this legal whereas online poker is almost every state isnt? I am way more than interested just a few questions i had before looking to sign up. thanks!

    I’ve used the site for the last 2 years and it’s legit. Coins don’t equal cash Sweeps cash equals cash you have to hit the currency button.

    What is the ratio of sweep coins to US dollars? What is the ratio of gold coins to sweep coins? In other words, is everything set up as a 1:1 ratio?

    This…. Whats the difference between gold coins/sweep coins, seems very confusing.

    Gold coins i think are like play money. They can be converted into sweep coins for play or withdrawal. Yes we need to know the ratio here. Also i read the rake is high on the site but maybe somebody can confirm that.

    EDIT: Looks like from what I’m reading rake is 5%.

  • Brandon6385

    so were paying $20 for 200,000 in play money, and 40 coins for real money? lol

  • squidkill

    Its all very confusing but I have nothing else going on.. so—-I’m IN!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    From what I’ve read so far, sweeps coins has a 1:1 ratio with US dollars. So for depositing $20, you’re getting 40 sweep coins or 40 US dollars. Is that right? I’m assuming then you have to play a certain amount to make a withdrawal?

    heck just create a home league on poker stars to buy pass all this purchasing and everything. No money involved there.

    Money is involved, just send the buy in to the “host” on venmo or paypal and they payout after it’s over.. Pretty sweet thing.

    Already 124 entrants. I have a feeling this’ll cruise past the 5k guarantee!

    For anyone on the fence about Global, I’ve used the site a few years now myself and i can report positive experience with them, both in terms of ease of cash in/cash out and the tournies being relatively soft/profitable. Tournament player’s should love the site. Cash games, on the other hand, are stocked well with grinding regs who pay attention, take notes and play aggressive.
