Poker Players Exploiting Penny Auctions

Hey what’s up poker players!

Thanks to the guys at for letting us tell you about the hottest thing online that poker players are quietly raking it in on, Penny Auction Sites…

Since there is limited online poker in the good ole U S of A, poker players have started playing the competitive game of penny auctions.

You may have seen the TV commercials… They show iPads selling for $22 bucks…A big flat screen TV for $59 bucks…

With sites with names like, or SkoreIt…

Are Penny Auctions Legit?  Can you really win stuff this cheap?

Penny auctions are a competitive game. You can win great deals but it’s not as easy as just saying yes I will buy that iPad for twenty bucks.

I will explain.

Here is how it works:

  • Users (you) buy bids. Bids cost $0.60 each
  • Bids are essentially ‘tokens’ that allow you to play the penny auction game
  • The penny auction site offers an item for auction starting at $0.00
  • To win the auction, you must the the LAST bidder to bid before a count down timer reaches zero or ‘SOLD’
  • Each time you bid a bid is removed from your bid bank, 10 seconds are added to the clock, the auction price is increased 1 penny (hence penny auctions) and you become the lead bidder (the person who wins if the clock reaches sold)
  • If the timer reaches ‘SOLD’ and you are the last bidder then you have won the right to purchase the item at it’s ending auction price. Usually, pennies on the dollar
  • You can be outbid at any time
  • Bids spent trying to win are gone and non-refundable (ie, if you don’t win the auction you lose money)

Penny auctions are a competitive game.

There is a risk, strategy and psychology involved, just like poker. That is why savvy poker players poker players are exploiting penny auctions right now as the time is ripe.

Penny auctions are not “Discount Shopping Sites” or “Entertainment Shopping” as the TV commercials would lead one to believe. You may have seen the advertisements and wondered, what in the world is quick bids or q bids and how do they sell TV’s for $20 bucks??

While the average American see’s a commercial and thinks they are going discount shopping… They think that they can really win an iPad for $20 bucks just by going entertainment shopping…

Give me a break!

These people make for fairly easy competition to beat for seasoned gamblers who understand aggression and strategic game play.


Until now, I’ve kept quite quiet about penny auctions to my poker playing friends because quite frankly I did not want the competition!


I just can’t keep the ‘penny auction secret’ anymore…

There are enough good penny sites out there and national advertising going on anyway that you are going to find out sooner or later.

And especially since poker players have a built in edge in these games… Aggression, psychology and risk taking are all elements of winning penny auctions.

It is time you learned about penny auctions. With the holidays around the corner it’s time to put your poker skills to action and win yourself and your family some incredible items in a penny auction.

Have you really won?  Did you get your stuff?

Yes and yes and I know plenty of people who have as well.

I’ve won a load of stuff since I’ve been playing and am considerably up on what I have spent on buying bids vs. how much stuff I have won in auction.

A short list of auctions I’ve won…

  • Four (4) Flat Screen HDTV’s – I won two 42” TV’s, a 32” and a 22”
  • PlayStation 3 Move Bundle
  • A Telescope
  • Set of Nike Golf Club Irons (ended up trading for an xbox)
  • Taylormade Burner Driver
  • A sweet set of Bose earbuds for my iPod
  • iPod Touch
  • Gold & Silver (the real thing, shipped to me!) *gold and silver penny auctions are rare
  • Binoculars & a Microscope for the kids
  • Gift cards to wally world, Amazon and more.
  • Multiple Watches (I’m wearing my favorite that I won at HappyBidDay, it’s a Seiko Black Monster dive watch that I won for about 40 bids and $14 bucks pictured below.

I don’t tell you this to brag or make you think this is simple to do.  

Winning penny auctions is not simple.

Nor is it random luck either.

Consider penny auction sites a place where you can play a psychological game of ‘chicken’…

Where you can win real money, or lose real money.

And poker players, like you and I my friend… have already developed the skills needed to win!  

If you apply winning poker strategies to the game of penny auctions then you can seriously rake it in and win more in value than spent!

About Auction Junkie

The Auction Junkie, better known just as "Spry" grew up in the country in the foothills of north Georgia. I began playing competitive games like chess and backgammon at a very young age. I began playing poker somewhat seriously a year before Chris Moneymaker won the WSOP and have been doing so every since. Making the leap to penny auctions came fairly easy as penny auctions are strategic games with similar aspects to poker, chess and gambling in general.
