Games and software

From our few trial games at Carbon Poker, one thing that we immediately noticed was that the games were fairly loose compared to other web sites. This makes Carbon Poker a good place for beginning players to start out in. As you can imagine, it is the lower stake tables that tend to be the loosest, although a few of the higher stakes games provide reasonable winning opportunities as well.

The games offered at Carbon Poker range from Texas Hold'em to Seven-Card Stud, numerous variations of Omaha, and even unique combinations of several types of poker games.

Carbon Poker runs on specially developed software that is designed by Merge Gaming. Having been a constant fixture in the online poker scene since 2005, a lot of the bugs have been ironed out of the software, ensuring a smooth and stable gaming experience.

Bonuses

All new players at Carbon Poker are eligible for a 100% match bonus worth up to $600, which is awarded with the first deposit. The poker room also offers free 14-day access to the Carbon Poker freeroll events, which can win you up to $500 every day. Numerous other bonus offers are also added on a regular basis.

Free Rolls and Tournaments

For poker tournament hounds, Carbon Poker offers scores of multi-table tournaments as well as sit-and-go events that are ideally suited to players of all skill levels no matter what their bankroll is. These tournaments provide lots of opportunities for players to test out their skills against more experienced players, and they also allow for the winning of numerous special offers and various other prizes.

Carbon Poker offers a wealth of freerolls opportunities, many of which do not have deposit requirements. The biggest freerolls held every month can even get you as much as $50,000.

VIP - Loyalty Clubs

All players at Carbon Poker get the chance to earn Comp Points that can be redeemed for poker room credits. This program is intended to show loyal players how much their continued patronage is appreciated, and it really goes a long way in doing just that.

Customer Support and safety

While Carbon Poker does offer customer support service, it is unfortunately available only via e-mail. This severely limits the options you have available, although it may be argued that email support is the most widely used means of contact. Nevertheless, we would have liked to see live chat or at least telephone support provided. To Carbon Poker’s credit, the response time to email service was fairly fast and the support team was quite helpful and knowledgeable.

Conclusion

We’re just going to come right out and say it: Carbon Poker provides an online poker experience that simply reeks of sheer class. The interface is hands down one of the most elegant pieces of code that we have encountered in an online poker web site. It may seem quite rudimentary at first glance, but it is precisely this simplicity that makes it so refreshing. So many poker and casino web sites out there tend to be a bit on the garish side, and Carbon Poker manages to provide all the necessary features and then some without going overboard. The omission of some features may be a bit of a disappointment but it doesn’t take away from the fact that Carbon Poker is able to provide quite a satisfying poker experience.
