Carbon Poker and Merge Network get a new software update

April 6, 2009

Merge Network and Carbon Poker have just released a software update version to their poker client. The new release is version 4.5 and is bringing some exciting ideas to the poker room. This was done this week, together with new VIP program details.

Carbon Poker’s players can now choose from a selection of tech graphics including floors, different backgrounds, table rails, and card backs, by which they can individualise the skin look of their poker game. Through the new ‘Poker Game Mini Mode’, players are now in a position to run their poker games with minimal interface while being still legible. Such a feature was created with those players in mind who play at a multitude of tables at the same time, this giving them better visuals of all tables. The ‘poker game grid mode’ on the other hand gives players the possibility to specify grid combinations with up to 5×5 games, also allowing players to split poker games into the separate window or back into a grid window.

However, the best new feature of this new software release is the updates on tournament entries and payouts. The rebuys, bounties, addon, payout schedules and tournament entries were re-vamped now to include greater variant of options. As for the payment schedule, players now have the option between multiple payment options for tournament event entries.

There is the ability to have re-matches following after the end of the game through the Head’s up Sit-n-Go games. The site makeover also affected the loyalty reward system together with the VIP program and a brand new points system. This system allows for players to use their loyalty points to enter guaranteed poker events, exclusive VIP level freerolls, real money SnGs, live seat satellites, or even cash in their points for cash or clearing a deposit bonus.

Carbon Poker also added a new freeroll schedule. From now on a new $50,000 weekly guaranteed poker tournament along with more new freeroll and guaranteed games will be hosted instead of the old games.
