Carbon Poker recently invoked a new VIP program that gives players the option to convert their VIP points into cash rebates. The new loyalty scheme comes at an opportune moment as Americans struggle to find a new online poker site that is safe, secure and accepting of their deposits. One leading poker gateway is revealing Carbon Poker to be one such site.
Online PR News – 12-May-2011 – – Sliema, Malta, May 12, 2011 – In an industry where competition is driven by marketing campaigns and regional player acceptance, an industry that suffered a disastrous blow just a few short weeks ago from the US Department of Justice, one online poker site seems to be cresting above the settling dust cloud to prove its worth to the world.
Carbon Poker has been serving real money poker players for a number of years now, but never did it receive quite so much attention than it has in the past two weeks. When Black Friday rained down upon the internet poker community, the top US-facing operators, PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, deserted their American patrons in an effort to save their own hides. Their closest rivals, Absolute Poker and UB, chose instead to abandon ship, claiming bankruptcy and dropping off the virtual map of cyberspace.
All of a sudden, hundreds of thousands of US online poker players were left scrambling about, looking for a new poker site—a safe, secure destination—that would accept their deposits and real money poker play. It was right around this time that Carbon Poker was promoting its new VIP program, wherein the poker site offers cash back rebates to all new players.
The Carbon Poker VIP program overhaul comes on the cusp of an expiring 35% rakeback offer via leading poker gateway CarbonPokerRakeback.com. Carbon Poker is doing away with its rakeback scheme as of June 1st, but everyone who already has an active rakeback account prior to June 1st, 2011, will continue to earn rakeback beyond this date.
According to CarbonPokerRakeback.com, this is a very opportune moment for US players to get in on both promotions, plus a limited time offer of 100% up to $600 on a new players first deposit. Signing up an account, or using a pre-existing account with no history of deposits, and making an initial purchase with the promotional code 35CARBON will grant the unique welcome bonus, plus 35% Carbon Poker rakeback and instant entry to the VIP loyalty program.
An existing member of Carbon Poker will only be able to take advantage of the special promotional code and subsequent rewards if they have never made a deposit. In addition, the player must not have played on any site operating on the Merge Gaming Network in the previous 60 days. Questions, concerns or difficulties using the code 35CARBON should be directed to email@example.com for immediate assistance.
The Carbon Poker bonus is released by generating VIP points. From the very first VIP point earned, players are also entered into the VIP program. Points are awarded at a rate of 10 points for every $1 contributed to rake, and 10 points for every $1 paid in tournament fees, including sit-n-go and multi-table tournaments.
Each time enough points are collected, a $10 portion of the bonus is delivered to the player’s real cash account. Unlike many similar poker promotions, bonuses are not deducted from rakeback earnings. In addition to earning points towards the bonus release, players are also given 35% of their contributed rake, and tournament fees, paid daily into their poker account via the Carbon Poker rakeback program.
As players continue to earn VIP points, they can climb the status level, scaling form the lowest level, Earth, up to Wind, Fire, Water and the highest of all, Ether. Every rung of the VIP ladder grants a player access to a higher monthly freeroll tournament, ranging in value from $750 at Earth level, up to $3,500 at Ether.
The Carbon Poker VIP scheme is worth an extra rakeback equivalent of 7.5% to 35%, depending on the VIP level. A player’s points can be traded in for cash rebates. The higher the player’s VIP level, and resulting point accumulation, the higher cash rebates they will have access to.
