Cake Poker Network

The Cake Poker Network was designed by a team of online poker players with a solitary goal to develop a better online poker network. In April 2004, that dream became a reality, and thus the Cake Poker Network was born. Yes, that's a terribly overused clichÈ, but in this case, it seems to be true. The Cake Poker Network has a lot going for it, including a massive player base, excellent promotions, millions in guaranteed tournaments and 30+ poker skins where online poker fans can take advantage of these features.  U.S. poker players are allowed on the Cake Network.

Best Poker Sites On The Cake Network

Cake Poker Software - Games Offered

The Cake Poker Network provides a spectacular software platform developed by Cake Gaming. The poker client comes with all of the usual features ñ lobby stats, in-game stats, note taking, full-size and mini-view tables and multi-tabling at up to 10 ring games. The graphics are nice, very easy on the eyes, but nothing extravagant; which attributes to the overall speed of the software. The only real fault with the Cake Gaming software is that it is download-only, therefore compatible with Windows PC only. However, all Cake Poker Network skins offer a list of capable PC emulators for running the software on a Mac.

As far as game variety is concerned, the selection is pretty standard. Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Omaha Hi-Lo, Seven Card Stud, Five Card Stud and Five Card Draw round out the choices. Stakes run from as low as $0.02/$0.05 to as high as FL $150/$300, NL $200/$400 and PL $250/$500.

Cake Poker Network Traffic

The Cake Poker Network attracts a large active player base on a daily basis. Peak hour traffic averages about 12,000, placing the Cake Poker Network in the #10 position overall in the industry. Ring games draw a little more than 2,000 players at peak hours, while another 10,000 are found on the tournament side.

The Cake Poker Network is a sparkling pool of fish just waiting to be reeled in ñ if you look in the right places. Look to the short-handed tables and turbo games to reveal viewed-flop percentages hovering around the 55-60% range. Full-tables average about 40% viewed-flop percentages. If tournaments are your 'piece of cake', just about anything with a buy-in of $10 and under should be perfectly juicy.

Promotions On The Cake Poker Network

The Cake Poker Network has a number of universal promotions, including the Gold Cards and Gold Chips promos. Ring game players are randomly dealt Gold Cards throughout sessions. These cards can be redeemed for cash and/or prizes. The prize menu, and cards required, change on a daily basis, so be sure to check the promo page regularly to see what your cards are worth.

The Gold Chips rewards on the Cake Network are the equivalent of most online poker rooms "points" program. The are accumulated in the same way, for playing raked ring games and paying tournament fees, and can be used to purchase items and gear, as well as special tournament entries.
