Americas Cardroom is very player-friendly, with tons of great offerings and perks.
***ACR is the flagship skin on the Winning Poker Network, which also includes several other skins like Black Chip Poker, True Poker, etc. You can have accounts at all of these, but can only log in on one at a time. If you’re new to the network, start with ACR. If you have ACR, then try another.***
Pros: Traffic is very strong and continues to grow. There's lots of NLHE and PLO and SNG/MTTs (some with huge prizepools), a bit of PLO8 and stud, and a tiny bit of LHE/LO8. They do have player-to-player transfers. The cashouts are good – checks in 2-3 weeks, or Bitcoin within just a day or two. You can use PT/HEM, and there’s a sportsbook and an online casino. The first deposit bonus is 100% up to $1000 and clears decently quickly. ACR consistently rolls out great new options for players, like Jackpot SNGs or million-dollar-MTTs. A Mac-friendly version is now in beta!
Cons: All the rewards and promos mean the games can be tough and full of grinders.
X-factor: There are two rewards plans: choose the VIP plan if you rake more than $600/month (you earn player points that you trade for cash). Choose the rakeback plan to get flat 27% rakeback. For grinders, the VIP plan is the better deal: more play means a higher rakeback percentage. Your rakeback could surpass 30%, 40%, or more! There are big rake races for cash games (The Beast) and SNGs (Sit & Crush).
Also: You can deposit with credit/debit card, Bitcoin, or Western Union. There’s also a neat debit card cashout option. Sadly, new accounts from these states are not allowed: DE, KY, LA, MD, NJ, NV, WA.
