Global Poker: Micro Thunder Series V

Updated by Loren Oller verified symbol on November 30, 2022

The leading free poker platform Global Poker is hosting its latest online tournament in a few days. Starting Sunday, September 11th, players have a chance to get their hands on a share of guaranteed prize pots, tournament trophies, Global Poker swag and naturally, the bragging rights that come with winning events.

Micro Thunder Series V is all about micro buy-ins, and the tournament’s official slogan is “Go small or go home!”. Well, you’re playing online poker, so you’ll probably be home anyway, right? There are events with GC 1000 and SC 1 buy-ins, so this tournament doesn’t require deep pockets.

Although the buy-ins are small, that doesn’t get in the way of cool prizes. As always, there are both Gold Coin and Sweeps Coin events, with a total of GC 22,260,000 and SC 74,200 up for grabs.


Running for 8 days, the Micro Thunder Series V tournament features 31 Gold Coin events and 31 Sweeps Coin events. Event winners take home some cool Global Poker merchandise, tournament trophies, plus an entry ticket to the main Gods of Thunder final event. Both the GC and SC versions will take place on Sunday 18th September.

The Gold Coin version of the Micro Thunder Series V is a true free for all tournament. There’s no purchase necessary: many of the events start with a low GC 1000 buy-in, so your sign-up bonus should cover that easily.

Even in the Sweeps Coin events, the buy-ins are super low: you can get your seat at the table for as little as SC 1.


When you take the top place in an event, get ready for some serious Global Poker swag. Hoodies, beanies, caps, and key chains are handed out like there’s no tomorrow. In addition, event winners take home magnificent Micro Thunder Series V tournament trophies, complete with a bronze hand clutching a thunderbolt.

But these are just the physical items on the table. By winning an event, you get a crushingly cool thunderbolt avatar. This should put your poker mates on their toes.

And then there are the prize pots. The event-specific pots run from GC 105,000 to GC 1,350,000, and SC 350 to SC 4000. For the main Gods of Thunder events the stakes and pots are even higher: if make your way to the final table, you’ll be fighting for a slice of guaranteed GC 4,500,000 or SC 15,000.

About Global Poker

Global Poker is the leading free poker platform in the US and Canada. The site uses a dual token system to maximize availability and entertainment. You can play and even enter tournaments without making a purchase.

At Global Poker, there are two different on-site currencies: Gold Coins and Sweeps Coins. They differ slightly in how they work and what you can do with them.

Gold Coins can be purchased from the Global Poker website, earned as a bonus, and won from other players at the poker tables. They don’t have an inherent monetary value and you can’t redeem them for cash. However, they’re great for playing poker for fun and taking part in exciting tournaments.

Sweep Coins can also be earned as a bonus or won from other poker aficionados. You can’t buy them directly from the Global Poker store, but you always get some Sweeps Coins as a bonus when you buy Gold Coins. The best thing about Sweeps Coins is that unlike Gold Coins, you can redeem them for cash, with 1 Sweeps Coin equal to 1 USD. 

So, what are you waiting for? Sign up at Global Poker and elbow your way into the final table of Micro Thunder Series V. Let the thunderstorm begin!
