    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.

    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!

    I thought so also I haven’t signed up yet I was reading their terms and seen that. Also I question do they send out 1099 like fantasy does?

    so it says the current first prize is 4405, is that basically dollars that can get withdrawn if you win?? The coins/sweepstakes cash confuses me

  • superjon

    Testing out the site, so played ring game with the gold coins. 6 max PLO 5/10

    Get dealt 44xx in the blind and flop comes J64r. I lead out PSB and get 3 callers

    Turn is 9d, putting 2 diamonds on the board. I lead out PSB and get 2 callers
