About Tiger Gaming

Tiger Gaming is part of the Chico Poker Network and one of the only bigger poker sites which allow deposits and withdrawals with bitcoins and other cryptocurrencies.

With peak player numbers of roughly 1,400 players Tiger Gaming is not the biggest poker site on the market but has enough traffic to allow for tournaments with 6 figure guarantees and quite a lot of cash game action.

The rake at Tiger Gaming is quite a bit higher than elsewhere and the site doesn’t offer a meaningful VIP club. While this is bad for grinders, the site is perfect for recreational players. The games here are even softer than the 888poker games.

Please note that while the bonus looks teasing with up to $1,000, it’s incredibly difficult to clear the entire bonus as the play-through requirements are very stiff.

Tiger Gaming Traffic

Peak cash game traffic of the Chico Poker Network over the past years.

The chart above shows the average number (over 60 days) of real money cash game players online during peak hours for the operator. This number does not include tournament players or players in other game variants.

Tiger Gaming Bonus and Bonus Codes

The Tiger Gaming Welcome Bonus is laughably bad. This bonus is the prime example of simply putting out a big number (“up to $1,000”), but having conditions that make it virtually impossible to clear it.

The bonus clears at a rate of $5 per $50 rake generated – only 10% effective rakeback. This is much lower than the industry standard (20%). On top of this, players only have 30 days to clear the bonus. This is nowhere near the required time to redeem any significant portion of the potential $1,000, given that most of the action at Tiger Gaming is at the lower and micro stakes.

Tiger Gaming Rake and Tournament Fees

Tiger Gaming charges between 1 cent per 18 cents in the pot and 1 cent rake per 16 cents in the pot for cash games. This equals roughly 5.56% to 6.25% and is noticeably higher than the 5% most other operators charge. Tiger Gaming has also high rake caps, which makes this operator one of the most expensive ones in terms of rake.
