Cake Poker was started in 2006, when it also became its very own network; the Cake Poker Network. However, the network was bought by Lock Poker, where the network was renamed to Revolution Gaming. As Cake Poker was the owner, they are the flagship of this new network. With this merger, they have also guaranteed an increase in traffic as both sites, along with the other sites in the network, will be sharing its users. The online poker site is licensed out of Curacao, as most of the poker sites that are part of this network are. Many great things await this website, since the merger can only mean improved quality; one sites strengths can help the others weaknesses.

As Cake can be accessed by players from all over the world, they offer their website in three main languages; English, Spanish, and Deutsch. With the recent merger, they have revamped their website, making it look and feel more sleek and stimulating. The use of the color schemes, with the mellow tones, makes the players feel relaxed. The main page is kept as simple as possible, having only necessary information like upcoming and recent events, and how the player can go about creating an account and downloading the software. The rest of the site is laid out in a very simple manner, so that members can find and access the sections they want without confusion. They have instructions on how to play, as well as how to use the software.
They have an entire section carved out just for the tournaments they offer. This is done for the benefit of the players that not only enjoy playing relaxed regular games, but want a more competitive match against others as well. They keep a list of current and upcoming tournaments so that players can sign up for them.
Software and Games
As the Cake Poker site was once part of the Cake Poker Network, they use the software that was developed in-house. The software is required in order for the players to access and play the different types of poker games they offer. The software itself can only be downloaded and installed on PC’s, seeing that it is not supported on the Mac’s and they have yet to make it available for mobile devices. The poker program is user-friendly and has many features that are there to help the player.
For instance, the lobby allows the player to narrow down their search for the table they want to play in. Some other features include the use of avatars, in-game chatting, easy to use button interface, and even a stat counter. The stat counter is there for the benefit of the player, so they can check their own statistics, as well as their opponents to see how well they have done. The graphics in the game are not that great, but it makes up for it in gameplay and experience.
At Cake Poker they like to dedicate most of their time and effort on just a few types of poker games. They focus on the most popular and top ranked poker games that are played currently. Players can pick from Texas Hold’em or a variation of Omaha; between Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo. By keeping their game count lower than others, lets them create a better environment for the players. It allows them to have more tournaments and events centered on those two, rather than spreading themselves thin.
When a player wants to deposit money into their account in order to play at the real money tables or in the tournaments, they can use one of many options that Cake Poker provides. They can use their Credit Card, or NETeller, Moneybookers, and other similar to them. Sadly, in the event a player want sto withdraw some money, the options become limited. They can only use NETeller, Moneybookers, Click and Buy, and WebMoney to withdraw.
Although having a world renowned website, network, and software, they do lack when it comes to customer support. They do have various different emails that players can use to send in their questions or problems, depending on which issue they may be experiencing.
Cake Poker Rakeback
Cake Poker pays 36% rakeback to all players that sign up through VIP Rakeback. Cake Poker does not deduct anything against rakeback, not even bonuses. Cake Poker uses the dealt rakeback method. Rakeback is paid on Thursday for the last Wednesday-Tuesday play. Rakeback is paid directly to your Cake Poker account. Rakeback payments are displayed in the Cake Poker cashier history and marked as “VIPPAY”. Cake Poker rakeback stats can be found in the Cake Poker software under My Account/VIP Status. Rakeback stats from the past nine weeks can be found in the VIP Status section. Players are allowed only one rakeback account on the Revolution Gaming Network.
Cake Poker Bonus
Cake Poker offers VIP Rakeback players a 200% up to $2,000 first deposit bonus. The bonus clears at a rate of 16.67 Frequent Player Points (FPPs) per $1 in bonus. The bonus releases in $5 increments and any bonus that not cleared expires in 90 days. FPPs are earned at a rate of 1 FPP for every $2 in rake taken from the table when the player is dealt a hand, regardless of whether the player contributes to the flop. When playing multi table or sit and go tournaments, FPPs are earned at a rate of 3.5 for every $1 in tournament entry fee. In addition to the first deposit bonus, players are offered reload bonuses at least once a month.
Cake Poker Promotions
Cake Poker offers several exclusive promotions. The promotions titled Gold cards and Gold Chips. When the rake collected at a cash game reaches $20, one Gold Card is awarded. The card randomly selected by the software matched to the player that was dealt that card that hand. That player receives that card. Rakeback players can use the card to enter daily Cake Poker freerolls or sell it in the Gold Card Exchange.
The Gold Card Exchange is like a commodity exchange. The market decides what the cost of each Gold Card is by bid and ask prices. A price is agreed upon, the card is sold. The seller pay a 10% commission on all Gold Card Exchange sales that are not included in rakeback. The Gold Card Exchange is a remarkable and fun aspect of Cake Poker.
Gold Chips are earned playing tournaments and cash games. For every 100 FPPs a player earns, they will receive one Gold Chip. Gold Chips can be used to enter Cake Poker freerolls.
Loyalty Levels is the VIP program offered by Cake Poker. In addition to rakeback, a player is also eligible for Loyalty Rewards. There are 50 levels of the Loyalty Levels program. The Loyalty Levels prize is based on how fast the position is earned. The faster a player clears the level, the bigger the rewards.
Cake Poker Graphics
Cake Poker software is a less animated than most other Poker sites. Nevertheless, this is the reason why their software runs extremely fast. The hands are dealt exceptionally fast at Cake Poker, so players will be sure to see more hands per hour than almost any other Poker site. Cake Poker has a variety of rather unattractive models to use as avatars. The lobby is easy to navigate and functions well.
VIPRakeback General Opinion
The tournament selection at Cake Poker is vast and some of the fishiest players around, Cake Poker offers their players a lot of action. Even though Cake Poker does not accept U.S. players anymore, the Revolution Gaming Network does. This gives players from all over the world access to U.S. players who are known to play loose.
Cake Poker is not a particularly animated poker software. While the software is capable, it does not offer any significant features. Some players experience lag from the servers from time to time. The Cake Poker 2.0 version fixed some of these issues so make sure to use this newer version if you are not already using it.
