New penny auction site open for business

Thursday, 26 August 2010

Ever fancied playing in an event only to be scared off by the buy in? New online penny auction site could be just the ticket. The site, which launched earlier this month is giving online poker players the opportunity to bag credits for a fraction of the cost.

The site auctions off poker room credits with many of them won for just a few cents. A prime example is that of K Thornton who won the very first Bidibot auction, bagging a $20 poker credit redeemable at for the princely sum of just 11c.

“I think I only placed two bids to win my first auction for the bargain price of 11 cents!” said the delighted auction winner “It was so easy to use and I even placed my bid from my iPhone. I’m such a bad poker player so all the credit I can get is a good thing. I’ve been recommending Bidibot to my friends and they just can’t believe how much real casino cash they can get for just less than a buck.” enables players to bid on auctions of poker tournament packages, poker chips and credits. Each auction starts at $0.00 with a countdown timer set at five minutes. Each bid of $0.01 that is made increases the countdown down by 30 seconds with the person who has made the highest bid when the clock hits zero bagging the item.

Credits for the likes of Victory Poker, Betfair, PKR, InterPoker, and GCasino are currently on offer at with more poker rooms expected to be added in the future. The site has also agreed a partnership deal with that will see offer a wide variety of seats and packages to the extremely popular Grosvenor Poker Tour. Starting next month the site will be auctioning off a series of tournament entries ranging from £100 side events right up to £2,500 Main Event buy ins.

“We’re the eBay of poker rooms!” said John Tabatabai, CEO of Bidibot. “We started this site to make playing poker games more affordable. Spending a dime to get $50 in your poker account certainly does that!”
