Detailed Review

Carbon Poker is part of the Merge Gaming Network and is one of the most innovative, ground-breaking poker rooms available with software that is completely in a league of its own. Recently the room has done a massive update with newly added games to the line up including Roulette, HORSE, Joker Poker as well as a bad beat jackpot among other features. They offer great sign bonuses, reload bonus and for loyal players you will be entered into some of the largest free rolls including a monthly $50K. Carbon Poker is a US friendly poker room.

The current Carbon Poker bonus includes a 200% match bonus up to $500 with all new players receiving 14 days of new player free roll coupons. The new player free rolls are a guaranteed $500 prize pool with all prizes paid out in cash. You will also receive one free entry to the $50,000 Super Satellite qualifier. Players can expect to receive monthly reload bonuses, preferred payment cash bonus . All bonuses are paid out in increments of $10 through regular game play. Carbon Poker bonus is a very easy one to clear with players have no difficulties in earning the required points.

Carbon Poker is still new to the scene and as such traffic can be low key.  For all info related to traffic and table stakes you check out this Carbon Poker review in addition to ours.  Due to the aforementioned reasons you will find some very loose games at the micro levels and even in mid stakes where limit poker supplies enough action packed,  pot building players, to keep anyone happy. You can find some tight games but should pay attention to the tables and stats if you are in search of this.

Ring tables can be very loose, with lots of action especially in the NL and Limit Texas Holdem group. The room is frequented by more Omaha and Holdem players but since adding HORSE and Razz, players are testing these games out. Carbon Poker's traffic is still consistent with a new room seeing 400+ real money players during peak hours. The room is growing daily with more players taking note of all the special features this room has to offer. Due to the traffic, players who are in search of mid to high stake games may not find what they are looking for here but instead will be presented with many loose games to take advantage of. The rake is comparable with the industry standard having a take of 5% with a cap of $3. The poker room supports the "no flop no drop rule".

Tournament traffic is steady during peak hours, and as a benefit of a low traffic room you will find that there are some great overlays to be had here. Rarely is the GP met making these particular tournaments well worth the cost especially if you are looking to get in on the $60,000 GP hosted every Sunday. Tournaments buyins can start for less than $1 and at the most can run you a couple hundred for a direct buyin to a live event satellite. That right there is what makes the Carbon Poker room stand out. They offer great seats to some live events like the WSOP and Aussie Millions on a regular basis, but with the traffic being minimal players will find the competition for these seats limited. Sit N Go tournaments are available along with some qualifiers for the GP's. The only downside is you will have to wait for them to fill and dependant upon the time of day you are playing, this could be anywhere from a couple of minutes and up.

The software is by far one of the best there is in the industry. They have created a unique, high quality poker room that offers great playability. Players have a couple other creative features at their disposal such as being able to show your opponents one or two of your hole cards as well as the potential to see what the turn and river cards would have been if the hand was in fact played out. Carbon Poker uses a special tag option. Here you can tag players like you normally do in most rooms using notes but when one of your tagged player signs on to the poker client, you will be notified through instant messaging that the player is online and what table they are playing. A great tool for finding certain players. The lobby is fully functional with standard lobby statistics available and an easy to use interface. Players can also multi table but may find the cascading tile a little difficult for viewing. The room is on the Merge Gaming Network, and is licensed by the Kahnawake Gaming Commission which means that you can be assured that all financial transactions will be safe and encrypted as well as a certified RNG guaranteeing fair gaming .

The support team at Carbon is top of the line with players having access to such options as email, phone and live chat that are available 24/7. The Carbon Poker support team are friendly, professional and efficient with wait times down to a minimal.

Carbon Poker has provided a great selection of payment methods for players in both the US and non US to use. The current choices are; Click2Pay, ECO, Fonelinx, Visa/MasterCard, Neteller, Moneybookers, eWallettXpress, wirecard, PIN
