USA Players Have Several Options For Online Poker
February 8, 2012
If you live in the United States, you should know that you have several options when it comes to online poker. There are 5 major networks with over a dozen poker rooms that are all competing for USA players. The most popular network is the Merge Gaming Network that has up to 10,000 players on during peak hours with hundreds of tables to choose from. Former players from Poker Stars will appreciate the Minted Poker software as the two poker room software are very similar.
One of the most recent additions to the United States poker scene is the rebranding of Bodog into Bovada Poker. While players are anonymous on the tables, the network boasts a lot of traffic with very few good players on them. The Cake Poker Network has been around for several years and should be a dependable sign of a quality poker network working hard to bring in as many USA players as possible.
Finally, the Winning Poker Network is beginning to make a foothold in the industry. In their America’s Cardroom review, the poker network has been doubling down on their MTT guarantees which has more than doubled the traffic visiting the network. The cash game players at America’s Cardroom compete with Bovada as being some of the softest competition in the entire industry, even to non-US residents.
Depositing and withdrawing at these poker networks has not been cheaper or easier since Black Friday. Additionally, USA poker players have not had better rewards being offered to them over so many different poker networks in quite some time. Regardless of the poker room, USA players will be able to get up to 60% rewards when you combine rakeback and deposit bonuses; that is as much as 5x the rate small stakes players were getting on a monthly basis at Poker Stars.
With online poker legislation on the horizon in the United States shortly, start playing poker again now to take advantage of the influx of new players once legislation hits. Have your bankroll ready to play for big money against the poorest of USA players.
