Gambling and poker go hand in hand, right? Wrong! Poker should never be confused with gambling because you have choices in poker that are not afforded to one that is gambling. The only time you are ever forced to commit your money without seeing your cards in poker is when you are in a blind position or are anteing, and even then you have choices, you can fold on any street, raise, or call, which constitutes a skill based environment.
The Gold Card Lottery at Cake Poker shouldn’t be confused with gambling either. You are not forced to buy tickets or invest any of your bankroll to be able to participate in the opportunity to win the lottery.
How do you get a Gold Card? Simply take a seat in a real money game and play poker. Each time a certain amount of rake has been taken, the Random Number Generator (RNG) opens the Gold Card Vault and releases a Gold Card. Even if you folded, you strike Gold if the Gold Card released matches one of your hole cards. If there is no match, the process continues with the RNG randomly choosing Gold Cards from the Vault. The higher limit you play, the more Gold Cards are released.
Every day at Cake Poker will find a new Gold Card Daily Lottery – of course, it is a daily event. You are eligible to win instant cash prizes or entries into exclusive tournaments if your Gold Card collection holds the matching Gold Card drawn. The Gold Card Lottery drawing is done at Midnight ET and is valid for 24 hours, click the REDEEM button when you have a winner and your account will be updated immediately with your new found cash if the Gold Card is a cash card.
