Why Play Online Poker?

“Why should I play online poker?” This is a question many people ask, because they assume they can’t win anything of value and/or that it’s illegal in their state. In reality, there are MANY reasons to play online poker!

Here are a few big ones….

1) It IS Legal

Of course, we’re not talking about all online poker websites! BUT, there are a handful of sites (including ours) that are 100% US legal in all fifty states.

2) No Risk

Again, this doesn’t apply to all poker websites. There are some in Nevada & New Jersey where you’re required to make a deposit to play, and therefore you’re risking your own money. This is not the case with Cafrino. We never ask you for a deposit, and it’s always 100% FREE to play.

3) You Can Actually Win Money

Yes, you really can! Some US legal poker sites (including Cafrino) offer cash prizes. At Cafrino, we make it super easy to cash out at anytime via PayPal. It doesn’t get much better than that!

4) Convenience

Online poker is as close as your nearest computer! Instead of driving to the nearest casino, which may be in an entirely different state, all you have to do is sit down at your computer. There’s no need to drive, park, walk, or worry about leaving the casino carrying tons of cash. You can also do other things while simultaneously playing online like reading, talking on the phone, eating, etc. It doesn’t get much more convenient than that!

5) Other Players Can’t Read Your Tells

By poker tells, we’re referring to how players physically bet, breathe, talk, hold their cards, or otherwise react to situations as they develop during the play of the hand. When you play online, these tells become invisible. This is great for beginners who are still learning the game, or for those that don’t have a good poker face!

Cafrino announces new CEO, raises $100,000

Cafrino LLC, a 100% free-to-play and U.S. legal online poker site, has announced Michael Murphy as the company’s new CEO and revealed a capital raise that values the poker site at $1 million.

Murphy has worked with some of the most recognizable brands in the country, including Sony Online, Sony Pictures, Lucas Arts, and Fox Interactive. Most recently, he held a position as the Senior Vice President of Creative Services at NYX Gaming Group.

In his three years working with NYX, Murphy was very “hands-on” with the online poker product the company had developed.

“I wanted to be involved in a product that catered to the players and made the user experience a top priority. I haven’t found that with any of the free-to-play poker sites available to US players today,” Murphy said.

Murphy has brought that dedication to the players with him to Cafrino, and the company says players can expect some major positive changes when the site re-launches this Fall. In the short time that he has been CEO, he has put in place major changes to the tournament structure, wallet, design, customer service team, and more.

In addition, Cafrino has secured $100,000 in additional capital investment, valuing the company at $1 million.

“Cafrino will be the poker experience I’ve always wanted as a player,” Michael explains, “Whether it’s live poker, online, or free-to play, I know what poker players want: a fun, challenging, cheat-free environment where technical issues are handled promptly and prizes are paid out as promised. Cafrino is going to be a revolution in the world of online poker, and I hope you all will come along for the ride.”

Cafrino is a KAYWEB Angels portfolio company, and the investment firm’s CEO Haig Kayserian said they were delighted with these latest developments.

“Cafrino has had to go through some major changes in recent times, and we never gave up on the product, seeking a new CEO to lead it to the heights it deserves,” Kayserian said. “In Michael Murphy, we have our guy and Cafrino has the guy it needs to fly.”

Cafrino is currently undergoing development updates, but expects to re-launch soon. Sign up for the BETA version by clicking here and stay tuned for more updates.
