Games on CoinPoker runs solely on USDT (Tether), although at the beginning of the project players could play only with native CoinPoker’s token – CHP.
Now you don’t need to worry about volatile nature of crypto tokens and your balance will stay at the same US dollar value for the entire time.
CoinPoker does accept not only USDT and CHP deposits, but also BTC and ETH deposits. The value of your cryptocurrency deposit will automatically convert to USDT value.
Afterwards you can choose between all four currencies withdrawal.
USDT Deposit (+ETH and CHP)
It’s pretty easy to make a deposit on CoinPoker, but never ever transfer your funds from the exchange (they would be lost otherwise). Use MyEtherWallet or Metamask or any ERC-20 compatible wallet.
First you will be asked for your personal wallet address and then you’re allowed to send funds from that particular address only.
Given Tether(USDT), Ethereum(ETH) and CHP are ERC-20 tokens, use one address for all of them
Bitcoin (BTC) Deposit
If you’re not a owner of any of supported ERC-20 tokens, you can still use the mother of cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin. Games aren’t running in bitcoin denominations, but value of your deposit will be converted into USDT of same value and you can start playing without any further issue.
Just enter the desired amount of BTC to be deposited and you will be given the address you send funds to.
As you would expect from any good poker room, CoinPoker does offer several poker variations to play. Every poker player should be satisfied with poker games offered, although S&G players won’t find their games on this platform at this time. These are planned addition in the future.

Payouts are 100% to the winner in case the multiplier is up to 20. Multipliers 50-1000 will reward everyone involved in spin – 80% of the prize pool to the winner and 10% to 2nd and 3rd each.
The rake on cosmic spins is 5%.
The last available format on CoinPoker is Open-face Chinese poker (OFCP), this one is quite rare among online poker sites, so if you’re a fan of OFCP, CoinPoker might be the correct poker room for you. Stakes are beginning at USDT0.02 and slowly progressing up to USDT50.00.
