Full Review of Juicy Stakes Poker
Summary of Juicy Stakes Poker
If you’re looking for something new in online poker it’s a great time to bite into Juicy Stakes Poker.
An unassuming skin on the Cake Poker Network, Juicy Stakes Poker impresses with lucrative sign-up offers, clutter-free software and a horde of clueless poker players.
Juicy Stakes Poker offers the most popular poker games with No-Limit Hold’em and Pot-Limit Omaha getting most of the traffic.
Although the software does offer standard features like hand histories, re-sizable tables and different multi-table options it does lack some of the extensive options on the major networks.
We’ll wager that if you stack around for a few hours the software will be the last thing on your mind, however, as you begin to stack numerous helpless fish.
One of the key components of Juicy Stakes Poker is a world-class support team. Although it’s limited to email and FAQ, we’ve found the support staff to be some of the most helpful in the industry.
They will go beyond the call of duty to make sure your experience playing online poker is a good one.
Juicy Poker also offers the wildly popular Cake Poker Network loyalty program that has gold chips, gold cards and even gold stacks.
If we could change anything on the site, we’d simply add more players as the off hours can get a little slow.
On the plus side, it seems to be getting better, and as it currently stands Juicy Stakes Poker is already a compelling site to play on.
Promotions and Bonus Information
As a newer online poker room Juicy Stakes Poker has some fantastic promotions.
The sign-up bonus is significantly higher than the industry average but Juicy Stakes Poker also runs a large number of freerolls for new players.
Juicy Stakes offers an exclusive $1000 first-deposit bonus at 110% match for all new PokerJunkie players.
Bonus cash is paid out in $10 increments 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.
Juicy Stakes Poker also offers an exclusive monthly $1,000 freeroll for new depositing players who deposit and earn 1 FPP during the month they deposit.
Players already signed up though PokerJunkie who earn 100 FPP each month also qualify.
New depositing players are also automatically issued a free seat in the weekly Cake network $500 Freeroll.
Freeroll plays every Saturday at 2 PM ET.
Juicy Stakes generates a medium to low amount of traffic but it seems to be steadily growing.
The Cake Poker Network has been all over the place over the last few years going up to top 5 then falling down to below 10.
These days the network has stabilized and seems to once again be climbing the traffic charts. What does this mean for you?
You’ll be able to find micro and low stakes games running 24/7 but if you want anything bigger than $.50/$1 you might need to check out another site.
The high games do exist on Juicy Stakes Poker but they run infrequently.
Software & Graphics
The Juicy Stakes Poker software isn’t really the strong point of the site but it gets the job done.
Similar to many of the other sites on the Cake Poker Network, Juicy Stakes Poker is actually a step above many of the other skins with its simple white and red interface.
Cake Poker software used to be very buggy but we’ve noticed some vast improvements over the last couple years and features like customizable tables, a tournament calendar and advanced player stats are a welcome addition.
Like most of the Cake Poker Network skins offers No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha and supposedly Seven-Card Stud. We’ve yet to see a Seven-Card Stud game running on the site.
Juicy Stakes Poker has No-Limit Hold’em, Pot-Limit Omaha and Seven-Card Stud. Be warned the Seven-Card Stud games are rarely running, however.
The real traffic is all generated in Hold’em and Omaha with the split version of Omaha also getting a dedicated group of players.
Juicy Stakes Poker also offers an online casino, which helps recruit many of the site’s questionable poker players.
Quite often players will make a big score in the casino and then decide to give online poker a try. If you ask the table what their favorite slot is - and someone answers - there’s a good chance you’ve got a bona fide fish on your hands.
