If you are into online poker in Michigan there are not any better options than Global Poker. Particularly right now.

Global Poker currently has more tournaments and more non-stop poker action than any other legal online poker site in the US. And you can start playing for free right now in the month of April.

The only thing you have to do to get in on the action is create your account here, play poker online at Global Poker, and win Gold Coins.

What is Global Poker?

Global Poker is one of the few legal online poker options in the US.

David Lyons, the general manager of Global Poker, spoke with our sister site last week regarding the new options at the site.

“Global poker provides a social poker experience similar to many other social gaming experiences out there,” Lyons said. “We have an added twist, a unique twist, which is that players can actually win prizes.”

Global Poker is currently running a monster tournament called the Home Series, in which there are 2,000,000 in Sweeps Coins guarantees and a 500,000 Sweeps Coins guaranteed final scrimmage scheduled for April 26.

“A lot of players are going to be looking for something more akin to the live experience,” Lyons said. “So we came up with this idea of having one big tournament.”

Is Global Poker legal in Michigan?

Global Poker is legal in the state of Michigan and is legal throughout the US.

The popular site uses a “sweepstakes” model instead of a “real money” model, allowing them to legally operate online in the US. When you make a deposit your money goes toward Gold Coins. Equal to the Gold Coins is a currently that is known as Sweeps Coins. The Sweeps Coins are available for free after players buy Gold Coins.
