Win Cake Poker Review

Win Cake (formerly Cake Poker) is a medium sized poker room that is on the Revolution Gaming Network. This poker room caters only to non-US players and there are around 2,000 active players at the poker tables at peak times of the day. They’ve updated their online gaming offerings in an effort to give players more chances to win.

Their new home is WinCake.com and you’ll be able to access the new game offerings via the online poker lobby and games tables. They offer a variety of new casino games to their poker players including casino slots, table games, video poker, blackjack, craps, and casino hold’em and all players will be able to bet on sports and live betting action later in the summer.

The Win Cake poker room rewards new players with a $500 new deposit freeroll that takes place each and every Saturday and along with their huge welcome bonus it’s one of the major reasons why new players flock to WinCake.com every day.

Win Cake Poker Game Selection

Win Cake offers the most common poker games offered online. Nothing special, but it has what most players are looking for. Games Offered are: Texas Holdem, Omaha, Omaha Hi/Lo, and Teresina, a variant of 5 Card Stud.

There is a wide range of cash game stakes available from $0.02/$0.04 all the way up to $500/$1000 at the nosebleeds. As long as you are playing Texas Holdem (full ring or 6-max tables), there won't be a problem getting action. If you are looking to play Pot Limit Omaha games, you’ll be able to find a few tables at each level.

There are plenty of tournaments to choose from, including low limit buy-in tournaments, bounty tournaments and big money tournaments that offer good cash payouts and satellites to big events like the $75K Guarantee, although they could probably offer more mid-level buy in tourneys in the $20-60 range.

Win Cake Poker Rewards Program

The biggest thing Win Cake has going for them may be their rewards program. They have a number of ways to reward the loyalty of their players. All players earn and accumulate Frequent Player Points (FPPs) when playing any of the real money Win Cake poker games (ring games, tournament games and select casino games).

At Win Cake, FPPs accumulate to become Gold Chips, which are redeemable for free tournament play and access to The Chip Shop. FPPs accumulated turn in to Gold Chips at a rate of 1 Gold Chip for every 100 FPPs that are accumulated.

Gold Chips are the only currency that is accepted in the Win Cake Shop. After earning FPPs, you'll be able to convert them into bonus cash, which gets released into your account in increments of $5.

As you advance through Gold Stack levels, you'll have earned enough gold chips to trade them in for tournament tickets into some of the biggest events in their tourney schedule, including the Sunday $75K Guarantee and $25K Super Stack event.

Promotions

Win Cake offers some nice promotions to all new players. Players can take advantage of the 200% first deposit bonus up to $5,000 plus they throw in a seat into the New Depositor $500 Freeroll and give you 1 free Gold Chip to jump start your rewards program.

You should also visit the Refer-a Friend section in the Rewards tab of the lobby. At Win Cake you can receive up to $100 in cash for referred friends. As your referred players earn 500 FPPs you’ll have $25 of your bonus unlocked into your player’s balance.

Support

If you don’t find what you’re looking for Win Cake support will be able to assist you further. Even though there isn't a support phone number listed on their website, there response time to emails is good. Email support is available through support@wincake.com and you can expect a response to any enquiries usually within an hour or so. Live Chat Support is also available during business hours.

Software

Since the rebranding the poker room’s software has pretty much remain unchanged. There is an instant play (for MACs) and download version of the software client. The download size is 16 MB so it doesn’t take very long to download on a broadband connection. Before playing the poker/casino/blackjack/dice/skill games that are available you will be required to create a new account.

In terms of Win Cake’s software features, there are a few worth mentioning. Some of the cool features include Synchronized Tournament Breaks, Filtering Options for the lobby, Waiting Lists, Resizable Game Tables for multi-tablers who like playing more games, Quick Seat Options and Downloadable Hand Histories.

Competition

There are plenty of soft games at all levels in the ring games and tournament section. If you play solid poker, you stand to win big money. Though there are players that will call with anything, so your patience and discipline can be tested but will pay off in the end. It is also fairly surprising how bad some of the players are at the larger buy-in tournaments.
