Ignition Poker

4 replies • Last post

I keep hearing how ignition poker is rigged it is not. There are some really soft players out there and money can be made. On average there are 250 people playing in cash games. Just like in a real poker room patience is a virtual.
As far as payouts you can only use bitcoin my preference is coinbase simple and easy. They payout but if you bought in for $100 you have to play winning or losing $100 worth of action. That does not mean you lost that amount you just bet it going forward.

The site has lost players in september. Never realized how many college kids were on the site. Over the summer there was an average of 2000 players on the tables in tournament formats. Cash games just as many.

Hi mackey, good to hear you're doing well at Ignition Poker.

Just some friendly advice: I do not recommend using Coinbase for transferring Bitcoin to and from gambling sites. They often ban people when they find out that their transfers are gambling related. And remember it is Bitcoin so every transaction you ever make is recorded on the blockchain so they can find things out retrospectively. The safer method to use is this:

Depositing:
Your bank => Coinbase => Your own BTC wallet => Gambling site

Withdrawing:
Gambling site => Your own BTC wallet => Coinbase => Your bank

You can see there is no direct transfer of funds between the gambling site and Coinbase. If you're super paranoid you could even transfer several times between different addresses in your own wallet before moving them out (because no-one can tell if different addresses are associated with the same wallet).

But that means you have to have your own BTC wallet which brings its own challenges. You can get a software wallet that you run on your phone or computer, or if you want to be super safe and you are transacting high amounts, a hardware wallet which you connect to your PC via USB, such as a Trezor or Ledger Nano.

Bitcoin.org has a good wizard process that can help you decide which wallet is best for you here.

Always play it safe! Consult our list of rogue casinos and warnings before depositing at a new casino.

I'm not a great poker player by any standard but I consistently beat the $0.05/$0.10 games on Ignition. The tables are very soft and the software is perfect for casual play, especially if you want to go cross-platform across desktop/mobile.

Now it’s most convenient to play on the phone, because it can be available to you anywhere. I basically do that.
