Ignition Casino (formerly Bovada) is the best option for almost everyone!
Pros: Most traffic of any USA-facing site - lots of NLHE, PLO, and MTTs/SNGs, and it's the only site with good traffic for less-popular games like LHE, LO8, and PLO8. Ignition has the softest games of any USA-facing network. It also has very fast cashouts, with checks taking about a week and Bitcoin taking only a few days. There's a 100% up to $1000 first deposit poker bonus or a 100% up to $1000 casino deposit bonus. They're the only USA-facing site to offer a “fast” poker variant, called Zone Poker. You can play Ignition on PC, Mac, or mobile devices, and they also have a sportsbook and an online casino.
Cons: There’s no rakeback, so make sure to max out that first deposit bonus. The software is a bit slow, and you can only play up to 4 cash tables at a time. There are no player-to-player transfers.
X-factor: The anonymous software - the whole site is set up this way. There are no usernames and you can't track individual players across tables or sessions. Some folks don’t like the anonymous setup but I think it's actually a positive, as it helps protect the ecosystem and keeps the games healthy. Players can’t target or chase each other, so there is less predatory behavior than on other sites. This means that games break less often and there are always juicy tables for you! Hold'Em Indicator is the best option for a compatible HUD, as PT/HEM don't work here. Check it out!
Also: Bitcoin is your best bet for deposit/withdrawal and Ignition is offering bonuses to encourage people to move in that direction. You can also often deposit with credit/debit card (if you have trouble then try a Netspend prepaid card) as well as Western Union. Unfortunately, new accounts from these states are not allowed: DE, MD, NJ, NV, NY.
