Online Poker Players Turning Cents into Dollars at New Penny Auction Site

First auction winner gets $20 poker cash for only $.11

bidibot-160.jpg26 August 2010 (London, UK) — Since launching earlier this month, the new poker penny auction site, has enabled online players to buy hundreds in poker cash for mere pennies. The site auctions credits of $10 to $100 or more which are frequently won for just a few cents. In Bidibot’s very first auction the winning bidder purchased a $20 poker credit redeemable at for only $.11.

“I think I only placed two bids to win my first auction for the bargain price of 11 cents!” said the happy auction winner K.Thornton. “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.”

At, players bid on auctions of poker tournament packages, poker chips and credit. They can place as many bids as they like until the auction is over. Auctions start at $0.00 with a countdown timer of approximately five minutes. Each bid in the auction is set at a fixed price of $0.01 and every time a bid is placed, thirty seconds is added to the countdown timer. When the timer hits zero, the last person to bid wins the auction item.

“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!”

The one-of-a-kind site currently offers credits at participating poker rooms including Victory Poker, Betfair, PKR, InterPoker, and GCasino. Bigger prizes and potentially bigger bargains are coming soon. Partnering with GCasino, Bidibot has secured a wide variety of seats and travel packages for the popular Grosvenor UK Poker Tour.

Beginning in September, Bidibot will auction tournament entries from £100 side events up to the £2,500 Grand Final. If the experience on the site to date is any indication those could go for a song.

Bidibot will present a Live Auction Tent at Poker in the Park in London later this month where visitors will have a chance to win one of 5 iPads.
