CoinPoker Review: A Close Look into the Site’s PLO Rake Conditions and Promotions


CoinPoker is a poker room that is crypto-based. Some of the largest cash game pots in online poker history have been played on CoinPoker!

Games on CoinPoker are fair through their decentralized card shuffling software (RNG). Their “revolutionary RNG module is impossible to reverse engineer.

This makes it possible to safely disclose information about the order of the deck, and boost transparency in online poker. Once a hand is completed, players can verify the randomness of the deck, as well as see the undealt cards that would have been in play!”

On top, third-party tools such as HUDs, trackers or any assisting software are not allowed in order to ensure the games played are clean.

The CHP Token

The official cryptocurrency of CoinPoker is called Chips (CHP), and are based on the Ethereum network. This ERC-20 token can be purchased on a number of exchanges and held on ERC-20 compatible wallets. It is used on CoinPoker for promotions, bets and payments made to and from your account.

There are two wallets in CoinPoker, a CHP and USDT wallet. It’s recommended to keep a balance in CHP because you will only earn 33% weekly rakeback when paying rake from this CHP balance while playing. 

Exchanges on where to trade the CHP token are growing. One of them is KuCoin and here is a guide how to buy CHP tokens on that platform. Today it’s even easier with the ‘Swap CHP’ function within the cashier.

Depositing and requesting withdrawals might seem overwhelming. It can be recommended to check out the detailed instructions on CoinPoker’s website.


Rake Structure

The rake charged by CoinPoker can be found in the table below this message and is called Community Contributions. They’re calling it like this because besides a small part used for administrative fees, all rake is used to return to the players in the form of promotions.

7-Handed Tables Rake Structure

4-Max Tables

The way this 7-handed rake structure translates into big blinds paid in rake per 100 hands, can be derived from the following table:

The rake paid in bb/100 is better than the average industry standards. Especially in combination with the 33% flat rakeback, net rake paid is amongst the lowest across all poker sites.


While you play, CHP is deducted to pay the rake from as long as you have a balance in CHP, otherwise it’s deducted from your USDT balance. By maintaining a balance in CHP, you’ll get 33% of the rake paid back in your account each Monday for the week prior.


Welcome Bonus

CoinPoker Welcome Bonuses

CoinPoker is offering 3 welcome bonuses that are 100% matching your deposit, worth ₮100, ₮300 and ₮700! By depositing three times, you can receive up to ₮1,100 in welcome bonuses.

You will only have one bonus active at a time. A bonus expires 60 days after claiming it, and when it runs out or when cleared, you’re able to claim a new one and make a qualifying deposit.

Where most welcome bonuses have a clearance rate of 10-30%, meaning when you raked $1,000, $100 to $300 is cleared in bonus money. At CoinPoker, it’s as high as 50%! Half the ₮ you’ll rake is being returned through the welcome bonus! Therefore, in order to clear the largest ₮700 bonus in full, you’d need to generate ₮1,400 in rake.

(!) Make sure to have enough CHP balance to pay the rake from, as you’re being granted 50% more leaderboard points when you’re paying the Community Contributions (rake) in CHP.
