Cake Poker Grows Bigger with Unabomber Poker
Posted on January 27, 2010 by George Roberts for Luckyroom.com
At a time when the online poker industry is going through one of the biggest crisis it has experienced since its conception, Cake Poker spots a gap and takes the lead ahead with an announcement of expansion of its network with another 8 poker skins. The advantage given by the migration of winning poker players from major European facing poker rooms on the ipoker and Boss Media network is a niche market for the Cake Network.
Cake which is now still behind in worldwide rankings in terms of size hopes to penetrate the market by taking over players that have been left without many alternatives by offering them a 110% sign up bonus for deposits up to $600 and additionally a 33% direct cake rakeback deal at the majority of old and recently recruited poker skins belonging to its umbrella including amongst others Power Poker and Doyles Room.
The news comes to add up with a recent announcement that Phil “Unabomber” Laak has joined their network with his own themed skin which in reality is just the beginning of the above mentioned expansion strategy posed by Cake which from our point of view will be successful due to market conditions at this point in time. It is well mentioned that Doyles Room which is endorsed by Doyle Brunson (Texas Dolly) has recently revamped its poker site and is running through a successful marketing campaign which of course will help the health and growth of the overall Cake Poker network.
The facts come to add up to the recent news that VC Poker (Victor Chandler) has closed remaining winning player’s accounts that qualified for rakeback and this seems to be just the beginning of the fate of small or medium sized poker skins powered by the ipoker network which will literally be forced to kick out winning players due to the recently announced winning players rule.

It is ironic to say that Playtech (ipoker’s mother company) announced a very profitable year in yesterday’s news at a time when its licensees are facing huge problems surviving after the fines and penalties posed by the actual hosting network which is protecting it position very well with absolutely no mercy to any related partner.
To make this absolutely clear to readers that are not following the internet poker news; ipoker and Boss Media (IPN Network) are penalizing small site owners which are using their software if they are unable to present fishy poker players to the tables which help keep the entire network in a balance of winning players. In summary this is creating a gap and a niche market for bigger poker rooms that do not share a network e.g. Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars and is now presenting an excellent opportunity for Cake to expand due to the existence of rakeback and its accessibility to US poker players.
The remainig 7 sites that have joined the Cake Network besides Unabomber Poker are 7Win Poker, Redback Poker, Amsterdams Poker, Safari Poker, Dime Line Sports, Rags2Riches and Burro Poker.
