The Gold Card Exchange
Visit our new player-to-player marketplace where you can trade your Gold Cards with other players!
The Gold Card Exchange is unlike anything else in online poker, a place where players can sell their hard-earned rewards from the cash tables, the Gold Cards, and others can buy the missing Gold Cards they need to enter the daily lottery or special GC series tourneys, or speculate with future prizes on specific cards.
This allows you to make a good deal with your Gold Cards, be it as seller or buyer, depending on the trends of the last transactions, market demand and your skills as Gold Card trader, just as on any other exchange.
Trading Your Gold Cards
With The Exchange, you can sell your surplus Gold Cards or buy them to gain access to daily, high-value Gold Card Tournaments, for example if you are short of a certain Gold Card for an upcoming Gold Card Tournament.
Strategic buying and selling make it possible to make money without ever playing a hand.
- Click on the Gold Cards tab in the Rewards section of the poker software, then on the Exchange graphics to the right which will open The Exchange in a separate window.
- Choose ‘Sell Cards’ to put one card or your entire collection up for sale, or ‘Buy Cards’ to stock up your collection.
- You can also keep an eye on the ‘Trends’ there and monitor your activity on ‘My Exchange’.
For more information, please see The Exchange Help section when you’re visiting the Intertops website.
