Please note: 

Players must wager a total of 8 times the bonus in raked hands, in the poker room, before they can withdraw the free money, e.g. Deposit = $100, Bonus = $100, you must then wager in a total of 800 raked hands in the poker room before you can cash out the bonus money and its winnings.

Get Paid to Play Poker

Every player who registers an InterPoker account and has more than $20 in his or her account is eligible for a prop player invitation. When invited you will see a pop up message (see screenshot below) telling you which table needs to be started, the limit of the table, and the amount we are prepared to pay you to play on that table. 

Payment will start as soon as play begins. The amount player is paid per hour will depend upon which table the system sends the player to. Player will not be sent to a higher limit table if he/she has insufficient funds in his/her account for the buy in.

Proposition play comes to an end in one of three circumstances. 

1. If at any time player leaves the table, or sit out from play. 
2. When four or more players have joined the table.

When the proposition play has ended player will see a message telling the amount of money that will be credited to player’s account. Player will then receive an email confirming this amount. 

If player does not wish to received proposition invitations, click on the “No, Do Not Ask Me Again” button. This decision can be reversed by clicking the appropriate checkbox in the Options screen (accessible from the lobby, or the game menu in the table).

Limits and Rake

Games can be played in either US Dollar or Sterling or Euro tables. This internet poker room has some of the highest limits on the net. Players can play real money games for $100/$200 in any of the currencies. For the smaller limit players $1/$2 games are the smallest that players can play. This online poker room does not really accommodate the micro limit players needs. Currently, there is not really much high limit action, mainly the small limits get a workout. 

Information on the rake is not that easy to find. From playing experience the rake is 25 cents every $5 till the pot reaches $60, which is not particularly attractive.

Player Traffic

InterCasinoPoker has been around for a few years now, once limit only like all Cryptologic platforms, the software has improved to now take pot limit and no limit variations of the games they run. Traffic is steady through the Cryptologic network and there is no real problems finding action at any level.

Playability

Like all Cryptologic platforms the lobby, cashier and games here are easy on the eye. Good stats and notes have recently been made available along with hand histories. Lots of play for free areas here if you are a novice aswell as low limit stake games. The more experienced will find the higher stake games more of a challenge.Deposit optionsInterPoker uses ECash for transactions, you can deposit using methods including Visa, Mastercard, Neteller and Wire Transfer. 

Please Note: In order for us to pay the instaCASH fee on your behalf, you must initiate the instaCASH transaction in the Cashier. If you perform the instaCASH transaction in your NETeller account, these funds will be treated as ‘Funds already available in your NETeller account’, and we will be unable to pay the instaCASH fee.
