Getminted came late to poker offering an entirely new network fronted by football hard man Vinnie Jones. The site was limited to non US players from the start and marketing efforts have focused solely on the UK. It seemed an unlikely success story however by offering a local service for UK players the site has won a significant share of the UK poker market. Middlepair, one of the fans and players said, "You can't talk about Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal with an American - this site is sociable - the players share a common understanding."

Getminted poker stays away from the glamorous rewards like poker cruise's or entry into the Poker Million the view being such prizes offer the average player little value. instead favours local British ranking tournaments for prizes.

Also on offer on the site are low value free rolls, run with just £1000 prize pots these are further restricted to a maximum of 400 players. Tim Parker, Marketing Manager for Getminted said, "many prizes offered on other poker sites are just PR puff. The odds of me winning are the same as the chances of lightening striking my laptop as I play. We wanted to offer real action for players."

One recent loyalty bonus was an offline poker event held at The Gutshot Club in London and arranged exclusively for the players of the site. Everyone who had shown exceptional loyalty to the site was invited and over 100 turned up to meet their online opponents in the flesh - this was only possible as the site unlike the vast majority of its competitors is predominantly made up of local British players.

Getminted poker is wholly owned and operated by Cashcade Ltd. Cashcade Ltd is a private UK company and a leading gaming operator currently focused on the UK and Europe. Alderney is where these games and services are operated from.
