Carbon Poker is the main poker site of the Merge Gaming Network (formerly Poker.com). The software is very user friendly and it offers many features that give the player a great experience at the tables. The Merge Gaming software is updated often to ensure optimal security and fast reliable game play. Carbon has all of the most popular poker games, although most players stick to Hold'em and Omaha many of the lesser known games are played during peak hours.
The standard deposit bonus at Carbon Poker is a 200% match bonus up to $5,000. The bonus is paid in $10 increments once one has earned the necessary player points. The initial deposit bonus is larger when compared to other poker rooms, but slower to clear. Carbon offers many special promotions once one signs up, such as monthly reload bonuses, free rolls and free satellites to live events.
