Frequently Asked Questions

PokerShibes is an online poker room based on the Dogecoin cryptocurrency. With faster transaction times, a great community, and a large and growing market share, Dogecoin is the logical choice for crypto gaming. At PokerShibes, our main goal is to provide an inexpensive and fun atmosphere to relax and play cards for actual value in the United States and worldwide.

Dogecoin is a cryptocurrency similar to Bitcoin, but with a vibrant and positive community, fast transaction times, a focus on charitable giving and micro-tip transactions. It can be used on Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Twitch, and a growing number of online merchants.

The account creation process is swift and simple! Just click "Play Now", select your username, password, and email address. Click "Submit" and you're ready to go.

The email address is used for resetting your password if you forget it. If you're uncomfortable providing your email address, feel free to use a random series of characters instead, although please be aware that this might make it difficult to verify your identity in the event that you forget your password and could result in loss of access.

Once you've finished the account creation process, visit the deposit page to see the unique deposit address associated with your account. Transfer any amount of Dogecoin to this address and it will be credited to your account after a few confirmations on the blockchain.

Most transactions process within 20-30 minutes. At certain rare times, deposits may take up to an hour. If your deposit is showing more than 10 confirmations and has not shown up, please contact us with your information and we'll resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

Currently we offer deposits in both Dogecoin and Bitcoin! If you'd like to deposit in Bitcoin, click the appropriate button on the Deposits page and send your bitcoin to the address provided. Please note that all deposits will be converted to Dogecoin and all credits to your account will be made in Dogecoin. All withdrawals are processed in Dogecoin. There is a 3% conversion fee for depositing in Bitcoin. Bitcoin deposits will take longer than Dogecoin deposits due to the longer confirmation time.

1 chip = 1 doge, making it easy to understand the stakes and betting amounts.

The vast majority of withdrawals happen instantly. Certain extremely-large withdrawals may take up to 12 hours, but in over 99.5% of situations your funds are available whenever you'd like to access them. This is one of the things PokerShibes feels extremely strongly about - your funds are yours, and you should be able to withdraw them whenever you want without waiting on approval.

At PokerShibes, you can play for any stakes, from Ð1/Ð2 microstakes all the way up to to Ð10k/Ð20k. As the site grows and demand for the higher stakes increases, we'll continue to add higher stakes tables. We also offer freeroll tournaments every two hours for new players and higher-value freeroll tournaments for established members of our rewards program. We have a large and growing slate of daily and weekly tournaments, from Ð250 buyins all the way up to the Ð100k Sunday Million.

At PokerShibes, we're attempting to do things a little differently. One of the things we're the most proud of is the fact that we've managed to transition the Dogecoin community spirit to a poker room format. While we understand that emotions can sometimes run hot at the poker table, the main rule for chat in the community is this: Don't be a jerk. It's very easy for poker rooms to become toxic places where people sling insults back and forth, and we don't think that that makes for an enjoyable experience.

Soliciting or offering advice or talking about the hands you had during an active hand is specifically prohibited. If you see this behavior, please report it by contacting us. You can say whatever you'd like about a hand that has completed, but while a hand is ongoing, discussing it is definitively against the rules.

While it is allowed for one person to have multiple accounts, it is specifically prohibited to use multiple accounts in the same tournament or cash game. If you are found to be using multiple accounts in this manner, you are subject to penalties including but not limited to losing access to your accounts, being banned from the site, and having active funds seized. Don't do it.

We constantly monitor both tournaments and cash games for collusion and soft play, and take all accusations of same very seriously. If you suspect that something of this nature has occurred at a table, please contact us with as much detail as possible and we will investigate and take the appropriate action.

The use of bots is specifically prohibited. If you suspect that a specific player is a bot, please contact us so that we can investigate.

As you advance through the rewards tiers, you receive both more Moon Points per Rocket Fuel and access to higher-tier freerolls. Currently, everyone Shibe rank or higher receives access to 3x-daily Ð5k freerolls and a once-weekly Ð100k Saturday freeroll.

You can currently redeem your Moon Points for instant Dogecoin credits to your account. In the future, we'll be adding tournament tickets, custom avatars, and physical goods like custom decks of PokerShibes cards, t-shirts, and other fun items.
