Gold Cards


What Are Gold Cards?

Gold Cards are a real money issued randomly in ring games of all stakes levels. In other words, gold cards are rewarded based only on participation on random basis regardless of funds betted or sessions logged. Once you've earned a Gold Card, it never expires.

How Do I Earn Gold Cards?

By taking a seat in any of our real money ring games, you're eligible to receive a Gold Card. As there are no minimum requirements necessary to earn a Gold Card, you may receive one on your first hand, even if you fold!

A Gold Card is released every time the table reaches a pre determined rake amount. Therefore, you will see Gold Cards more frequently at the higher limit tables (even though Gold Cards fall at all levels and stakes of our ring games). When you earn a Gold Card, you'll see it move towards your spot at the table, and from there it will be issued to your Gold Cards collection (within your The Greek Poker rewards portfolio).

What's The Value Of A Gold Card?

The value of each Gold Card is determined by how you use them. While some players hold on to their collection in an effort to hit the $52,000 Jackpot, others use them daily for tournament buy-ins and instant cash wins. Before redeeming your cards, get familiar with judging their value with the following indicators:

By Card

In a regular deck of cards, each individual card holds a different value based on its number or face, and its suit; Gold Cards are no different. Once you receive a Gold Card, you can check the odds of receiving each card using our Gold Card Odds chart.

By Series

On the bottom right hand side of each Gold Card, you'll see a banner indicating a Series number. If you've just received a Gold Card, the banner will show Series III.

Where Can I View My Gold Cards?

Gold Cards earned are safely stored within your The Greek Poker Rewards portfolio. When logged in to The Greek Poker, you can view your personal Gold Card collection by choosing the 'Rewards' tab.

What Can I Use My Gold Cards For?

There are a number of uses for your Gold Cards collection:

  • Access to the Gold Card Daily Lottery for instant cash and free tournament play.
  • Gold Card 500 leaderboard play for a shot at over $10,000 in monthly cash prizes.
  • Your Gold Card collection is your game board for our $52,000 Jackpot.
