Juicy Stakes Poker
Juicy Stakes Poker simply lives up to its namesake of offering some juicy games.
Although there are plenty of things to like about Juicy Stakes Poker – including a solid client, great promos and solid software – it’s the awful opponents that will likely interest most experienced players.
Juicy Stakes is a member of the recently resurgent Cake Poker Network that also includes sites such as Unabomber Poker, HiLife Poker and Fugu Poker.
Juicy Stakes is one of the better skins with a bare-bones lobby and a simple but effective white and red theme.
The site offers several variants of Hold’em, Omaha and Omaha Hi-Lo at varying stakes but the majority of the action is in the low-stakes games.
The Cake Poker Network has had its share of ups and downs but the traffic seems to be growing once again as its consistently ranking in the top 10 networks on the Internet.
It can still be tough to find bigger games on the site, however.
Juicy Stakes also shares the network’s loyalty program, which has been earning rave reviews.
Finally the site offers a very hands-on support team. We found the response time to be excellent and the staff was helpful in fixing any issues that popped up.
In summary if you’re looking for some juicy games than Juicy Stakes Poker is one of the most underrated rooms on the Internet.
Bonus Code and Promotions
Pending bonus cash is paid out in $10 increments based on the amount of frequent player points accumulated through real-money ring game or tournament play. Players earn 1 FPP for every dollar raked in real-money ring games and 7 FPPs for every $1 in tournament fees paid.
It takes approximately 167 frequent player points to clear $10.
JuicyStakes Poker has a sweet loyalty program that rewards players with Gold Chips, Gold Cards and Gold Stacks based on the amount of frequent player points generated.
Players have a “Gold Chip Meter” which awards Gold Chips when a certain amount of frequent player points is earned. Those chips can be used for instant prizes or tournament entries but they can also be collected until a player has a Gold Stack, which offers even more rewards.
Gold Cards are a perk for ring-game players who spend a certain amount of time at the tables. There are a variety of prizes to be won including a $52,000 jackpot.
Exclusive Offers for PokerListings players:
- Monthly $1,000 freeroll for new depositing players who deposit and earn 1 FPP during the month and for existing PokerListings players who earn 100 FPP in the previous month. See below for dates!
- On top of the 110% first depositor bonus, new depositing players will be awarded a seat in the weekly $500 Freeroll. Tickets to this tournament are automatically issued to new depositor player accounts. Freeroll plays every Saturday at 2 PM ET.
Tournaments and Freerolls
Juicy Stakes Poker offers over $5 million in monthly tournament guarantees, which you certainly won’t find at most online poker rooms.
As with most online rooms there are hundreds of Sit & Gos going off at any given time of the day although Juicy Stakes does offer some bigger MTTs as well.
You won’t find any weekly $1 million tournaments but every now and then you’ll run across a bigger guarantee. Check out the Sunday $25k for one of the softest big guarantee tournaments online.
Juicy Stakes Poker also offers a surprising amount of satellites to big events like the Aussie Millions and the Irish Open.
The site, most likely trying to build its player base, also offers a stack of freerolls for players looking to build something from nothing.
Software and Graphics
You won’t find glitz and glamour in the JuicyStakes client but it does offer a simple, easy-to-use lobby and a useful table set up.
You can choose between a basic table view with a simple top-down angle and a tilted, more realistic table with lifelike avatars.
We preferred the top-down view as it reminded of some of the more well-known sites on the internet.
Once you have your view picked you’ll find that JuicyStakes offers all the standard features of today’s online poker room with player notes, seat selection, auto-rebuy, hand-histories and a four-color deck.
You can also customize your table, re-size the lobby or use the in-depth stat tracker. You can also check the tournament calendar and register directly from the lobby for any interesting tournaments.
The games on Juicy Stakes Poker are softer than a stack of Charmin triple rolls.
Many of the games we found on the site reminded us of online poker prior to 2005, which is to say, before anyone learned anything about poker.
You’ll see a great deal of the classic loose-passive style that can be abused by players with even a limited amount of experience.
Every now and then you’ll run into a fellow shark but just use proper game selection and you’ll always be able to find a soft game on Juicy Stakes Poker.
