CentPoker.com started in response to a recent law Unlawful Internet Gambling
Enforcement Act which made it illegal to use any online betting or gambling site that you could deposit money into, effectively shutting down all such sites which existed at that time. CentPoker.com is just one of many places on the internet where you can play online Poker with other people. What makes this site unique is that it’s actually legal. The way the site works is simple you get 100 chips to start out with for free (the money value of that is dependent on the community pot). The community pot is equal to the total revenue the site has made. You play poker like you would at any other online casino. When your balance gets high enough ($10), you have the option of cashing out for real money. All ad money from this site goes into a community bank account. Your chip percentage determines how much of this money you have access to. Your percentage is your chip amount divided by the total chips in circulation. Any time your percentage translates into you being entitled to more than $10, you are able to cash out.
