With the recent “Black Friday” situation, free online poker sites has had an astonishing “poker boom”. SpadeClub was a very popular free to play online poker site with optional pay memberships. In September of 2010 SpadeClub went belly up and shut down. SpadeClub was unale to maintain itself in paying out winnings to its players according to sources within SpadeClub. The players on the SpadeClub poker network are now playing on our poker network since September 2010. There are a few other free poker sites out there, but these sites do not have the prizes, nor the cash that is given out each month in the Poker Euphoria Poker Room.
With over 1,000,000 players on the network; you play to win over $100,000 in cash and other prizes from companies such as UFC, WWE, WSOP, NBC, TapOut, XYIENCE, Foxwoods, T Mobile, Verizion, Apple, Sony, Google, Motorola, Samsung, Wii, Nintendo, PlayStation, Xbox, Kindle, HP & Nikon; just to name a few. Other clients include Hard Rock Las Vegas, BMW, Adidas, 1-800-Flowers, Mopar, Knockout Poker Tour, Dove, Foxwoods, Home Depot, JC Penny, Kellogg’s, Landrover, US Airways, Sprint, Subway, Wrigley’s & Yoplait. Recent entrants Zynga and DoubleDown Interactive already have attracted millions of players to free online casino games on social media sites such as Facebook. Zynga hosts Texas hold ’em poker games while DoubleDown offers digital versions of blackjack, roulette, video poker and slots. The only difference is that they do not offer the cash and prizes that we do. That is what puts us ahead of them; regardless of who has more players.
Our poker room does have optional subscription fees for certain high-value prizes, and we follow the letter of the law which states that there’s no purchase necessary to win the prizes. We fall under the sweepstakes law. It’s free to play, Elite membership runs around 4.99 a month and VIP membership runs around 20.00 a month. Memberships removes ads during your online poker session plus you can watch other tournaments on poker TV. There is a 3 to 5 minute delay so any type of cheating is avoided. Companies that try to closely link fees to contests can get into trouble for operating an illegal gambling business. A couple states do not recognize the sweepstakes law but we here at MakePokerLegal.com are getting our supporters in those states to accept the sweepstakes law. It is a challenge but with the amount of people that are behind us, it is just a matter of time.
It has been several weeks since “Black Friday” and our poker room has had a 824% increase in new players. The huge increase is mostly players within the United States, but the high increase in new players also stretch around the world. We accept players world wide. We are also close to rolling out a new update with private tournaments & getting rid of the slightly confusing leaderboard. Replacing the leaderboard will have various achievements and levels players can climb.We’ve learned that a lot of players either don’t like or don’t understand points disappearing each week and starting over at zero (at this time your points aka bankroll resets each week making it fair for everyone on the poker network). There are other changes coming, but at this time they are remaining a secret. The reason is we do not want to show our hand. We strive to offer the best experience for our players and want to remain the leading and best free online poker site in the world.
The current outlook appears that playing online poker for money will eventually be legal & regulated; however it may be at least another year before it is ready for players of the United States. This is a great time for people who played on various offshore poker sites to play on our network. If a player was playing really well and winning a lot, then they should be able to do the same on our network. The prizes that are given out are well worth taking the time to play. Each month there are Bounty Tournaments in which a celebrity plays with our players. It truly is a one of a kind concept. So if you have not played in our poker room, give it a try. Go to PokerEuphoria.com and play for free.
