G Casino Poker Review
|Site Name||G Casino Poker|
|Bonus||100% up to $500|
G Casino Poker is the latest member of the iPoker/Playtech Network, and has made great strides to establish itself quickly by offering some fantastic opening promotions. Most UK poker players will be familiar with the company behind this new site, as the “G” stands for Grosvenor, sponsors of the GUKPT.

The initial deposit bonus is a typical “Double Your Money” offer, with much smaller incremental steps for the release of your funds ($10 a time added to your account/$3 at a time allowed to withdraw) and using a sliding scale of rake value to allocate player points. Effectively, they make it attractive for players with a larger poker bankroll to sign up, rather than micro-table players, and there is also a VIP scheme which enables players to accrue points faster and has some tempting offers, such as exclusive freerolls and invitations to Grosvenor sponsored events.
G Casino have been very thoughtful about the divisions in the lobby area. As well as dividing the games into £ sterling, €uros and Dollars, they discriminate between short-handed and full ring games in their “Cash Tables” menu, and between “Rebuys” and “Freeze-Outs” in their tournament menu. The filters and other short cuts are simple to navigate, and they have the live support facility now frequently available through many of the leading web sites.
In terms of game-play, the standard of non-exclusive games is loose. As yet, it is hard to determine into what standard the exclusive games will fall, although many Blue Sq poker clients have joined, as the two companies share the same parent – The Rank Organization. This is good for the site inasmuch as there are already several thousand members, and you will not be waiting long, if at all, for a game to start or wondering if it will meet the minimum number of players to proceed.
One of the most appealing promotions that the site has organized is the “Freeroll Giveaway”, which are great ways to build a poker bankroll. These games are run every day, with £500 (pounds!) prize fund Monday to Friday, £1.000 prize fund available on Saturdays, and £1.500 on Sundays. The incredible offer pays out 50% of the field, so only the worst players will fail to win something over the course of a week. The games take place at 7.30pm each evening, have been limited to “full” members (ie – ones who have made a deposit) and capped at 500 players each day.
Other areas of the site that you may wish to explore are the qualifiers to the GUKPT, satellites to WSOP and ECOOP, and they also run the Jackpot Sit ´n´ Go bonuses shared with other iPoker sites.
The overall impression was that the site was organized, well thought out and very user friendly. The introduction of the Blue Sq clients has ensured that most of the G Poker exclusive games are well subscribed from the very start, and the site encourages private games and players to link through to the casino. Cashback is only available through the VIP scheme, but if you are a regular mid-stakes poker player, you will not be disappointed with the service that G Poker offers.
