The Gaming Club Online Poker Room is part of Belle Rock Gaming, a collective of seven Online Casinos and three Poker Rooms.
The Gaming Club Casino is well known for its excellent player support and its generous and fair bonuses. Thankfully they have brought the same high standards to their poker room. There are plenty of loose ring games to find here and a lot of tournament action.
Quite a pleasant to look at Microgaming skin with some good features. Player notes, Four Colour Decks, Three table Sizes, Your own Recent Statistics. Hand Histories are available to look at or export to your computer.
Single table tournaments start at $0.75 (with a $0.25 entry fee) and go up to $100 ($9 entry). Multi table tournaments range from $1(No entry fee) to $500 ($25). The average entry fee is 10%. There are true 'Freerolls' about three or four times a day where you can win a cash prize with outlay at all. These seem to attract the whole Poker Room, as the last one I was entered in had 11000 players. At peak times there are about 6500 tournament players (Not including the freerolls)
The lowest stake limit game is $0.05/$0.10, the highest is $100/$200. No-Limit games range from $0.05/$0.20 to $200/$400 and have a minimum and maximum buy-in of 10-20 big bets and 100 big bet respectively. At peak times there are about 4500 ring game players.
Holdem, Omaha, Omaha High / Low, 7 Card Stud and 5 Card Stud are available for Ring games and STT's. 'Heads Up' (one on one) and MTT's are Holdem only.
Higher than average maximum rake on the low stakes ring games and the low buy-in tournaments have a horrendous entry fee. $0.25 entry for a $0.75 buy-in is 33%. The industry average is 10%. Not the best place to play at very low stakes but at $1/$2 and above the rake is average.

Cashout speed and methods
Poker Room Withdrawals are processed after 6 hours. Only the Same amount as was deposited may be paid back to a card. Any excess will be paid by check or by one of the web payment services such as Neteller etc. Expect about 2-3 days for the withdrawal to reach your Neteller account.
The good thing about this bonus is that you only have to deposit $20 to receive the maximum bonus. $300 if your first deposit is via Neteller or Firepay, $200 if it is by any other method. The bead thing is that earning the full bonus is quite complicated compared to many poker rooms. You can only earn so much at low stakes tables. To earn it all you would need to play at $2/$4 tables and higher.
