We aggregate various brands into one large virtual poker room.  This give you, the player, the opportunity to play with more people.  This also helps to ensure that there will always be lots of poker games to choose from and lots of action.

Can I see what the game looks like before I start to play?

Yes. Simply download and install the client, view the tables and select a table to observe.

Why do I sometimes experience a slow or interrupted connection?

This could be due to many things: a server malfunction; modem failure; ISP failure; problem with your PC.

What do I do if the game freezes or I lose my connection?

If you lose your connection, the game will wait a period of time for you to reconnect. If you fail to re-connect, your hand will be deemed All-In. This means your last bet will be deemed to be taken as a bet made with your last chips, then the hand will be completed. If you win, you will be credited with whatever monies are in the main pot. A side pot will be played for by the other players.  If you are not able to re-establish your connection in a timely manner, your chips will be automatically deposited to your account for you.

In the unlikely event of  the game freezing as a result of a server error, the hand will continue from where it left off after the server has been restarted.  If you do not rejoin the hand, any money you may have bet will be refunded.

If I run out of chips, can I get some more?

Only after the hand you are currently involved in is over. Simply click Options menu on the Chip rack.

How do I tell how much is in a pot?

Move the mouse cursor over the pot.

Is there a credit card processing fee?

No, currently we do not assess fees for Visa and MasterCard.  

What will my credit card charge item read?

Your charge line item will simply read, VCI.

What is the rake amount?

Currently the rake is a step function on stakes of $.50/$1.00 and higher, and 5% on lower stakes tables.  There are maximum rakes, depending on the stakes and number of players.  In no case is the rake more than $3.00.  You may click the ? at the top right-corner of the table window to see the current rake.  The rake is rounded down to the next whole cent where appropriate.

How long does it take to cash out my winnings?

For security reasons we require a 72 hour waiting period on all withdraws.  Most credit card companies will then need 3 to 6 days to make the money available on your account.
