Everything’s CRAZY!!! at Crazy Poker – or is it? Actually, Crazy Poker has some very serious offers on the table, not only for new players but also the established regulars. First and foremost, there’s a very taking 33% rakeback deal. This amount of rakeback could well be the difference between profit and loss for many players, and it goes without saying that it is a very attractive offer indeed. What’s more, Crazy Poker are currently operating a refer-a-friend scheme which increases a player’s rakeback percentage to the tune of 1% for every two friends he/she refers to Crazy Poker. Those with an abundance of poker pals could do very well out of this deal. Other bonuses include a 40% bonus on all deposits up to $100, and a giveaway $10 for everybody who signs up to Crazy Poker and leaves their credit card details. This is far from CRAZY!!! – this is seriously good value for the online poker player.
Crazy Poker operates on one of the largest online poker networks, PrimaPoker. Although not to everyone’s taste, with over 80 poker rooms operating on the network (including Bet365 Poker, Gaming Club Poker and stablemate Royal Vegas Poker) and a combined playing base of over half a million, there is a lot of money around. Crazy Poker is the only Prima Poker cardroom to offer players a no-download, flash version of their game, and flash casino games for those interested. Customer support is excellent too, with 24/7 live help available.
Crazy Poker features ‘no-download’ play via a flash platform; the poker room itself features a pop-up menu which the player can use to change the table’s size, check their current amount of raked hands and change their seat. Taking notes on other players is also supported. There is also a flash casino.
The stake-range at Crazy Poker accomodates players of all budgets, with tourneys ranging from $0.75 + $0.25 to (at the time of writing) to the maxi rounder $2200 + $220 and ring games from $0.02 / $0.04 (PL) and 0.05/0.10 (Lim) to $100 / $200 (all).
Crazy Poker freerolls run on a daily basis and consist of three $1,000 freerolls for which there is a play requirement of 100 raked hands during the 24 hours prior to the event, one $1,000 no-obligation freeroll and one $200 no-obligation freeroll. See ‘Promotions’ for more.
Crazy Poker Bonus
As discussed above, the Crazy Poker bonus is very generous: 40% to a maximum $40, 33% rakeback paid monthly, and $10 for signing up.
Player Numbers and Growth
As previously mentioned, Crazy Poker is part of the PrimaPoker network and shares a large pool of players with around eighty other online poker rooms. PrimaPoker’s website reports growth as ‘steady.’ Crazy Poker’s rakeback offer should generate a lot of interest, and the offer is open until the end of October 2006.
Crazy Poker run a freeroll every Sunday with the prize fund based on the number of participants in the previous week’s game. The prize fund is usually between $500 to $600. There are also several big guaranteed tourneys at Crazy Poker, including a weekly $100k gtd.
1. How easy is the Crazy Poker bonus to clear?
2. What are the negative points, if any?
The Crazy Poker bonus is a relatively straightforward bonus to clear due to its size. The player must play 50 raked hands for every $10, therefore 200 raked hands meets the requirement for the maximum bonus. Of course, the initial sign-up bonus of $10 is given freely, and the 33% rakeback pays out dependent on how much the player pays in rake during the course of a month.
The negative points are few. Some people don’t like Prima Poker rooms, others love them; Crazy Poker is certainly up there with the best of them.
Industry standard 5% to a max $3 no flop no drop. The maximum rake taken from each game is clearly displayed on the Crazy Poker website.
