Swc Poker Club
Seals with Clubs a.k.a. SwC, was the first poker site to launch a bitcoin only poker room in 2012.
The idea behind it was to have a poker room that didn’t require any players to provide any real-world information about themselves which is mandatory across almost all other poker rooms on the internet.This removes all country barriers and restrictions that have segregated the poker player pool within their own country or outright banned online poker.
All currency is played with Seal with Clubs chips. 1 million chips = 1 Bitcoin. Seals with Clubs is still running in 2020 and while traffic is still quite low, recently there’s been a lot more action in their tournaments.
Seals with Clubs differs to most other poker and casino sites and does not offer a traditional first deposit bonus. Instead they offer competitive rakeback you will earn as you play on the site paying rake. You will start as a New Seal earning 5% rakeback and can work your way all the way up to a Grandmaster Seal earning 50% rakeback. In addition to the rakeback offered there is a leader board, also known as a rake race. Players are rewarded depending upon how much they rake in a given week or month.
The rake itself is incredibly low. Perhaps the lowest on the internet. The highest raked games on SwC are 2.5% with a reasonable cap too. High stakes and heads-up are even lower.
There is also a Bad Beat Jackpot for their cash games if you are able to use both of your hole cards and lose with a hand of Aces full of Kings (AAAKK) or better. It’s a progressive jackpot, so the longer time goes on with no one getting their nuts cracked, the bigger the jackpot becomes.
There are both cash games and tournaments for No Limit Hold’Em and Pot Limit Omaha. Fixed Limit,Open-face Chinese poker, Short Deck and Stud are also on offer. Although it’s a real struggle to get much action higher than micro stakes for these other game types.
Seals with Clubs is a fun poker site that offers a very fast and easy option with those who would like or even prefer to play with Bitcoin. There is a competitive rakeback system with fun poker races for those looking to put in some volume. The tournament series can offer something new to those that like to play tournaments or to those poker pros looking to add another softer site to their arsenal.
