Since my last post on this topic Merge Gaming stopped accepting U.S. players. This leaves a few options for U.S. online poker players.
The largest online poker site available to U.S. players today is Bovada. It is sister site to Bodog.
Another option is BetOnline. It is a sportsbook and casino that offers a small poker room. The games on that site are great because of the loose punters that play house games and bet sports. The Winning Poker Network is another option for players. Sites on that network include True Poker, Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker.
Intertops and Juicy Stakes are the two main sites on the Horizon Poker Network. That platform was once known as Cake Poker. Intertops is the oldest sports betting site in the world. It took the first sports wager in January 1996. It has paid players on time ever since. The best part about playing poker at Intertops is that it offers Bitcoin withdrawals for free to all players.
Speaking of Bitcoin casinos, Mbitcasino is an option for players looking for a break from poker. That site offers a variety of slots and video poker. There are also table games that include blackjack, baccarat, Casino Hold’em, roulette, Pontoon and a game that is similar to Texas Hold’em Bonus. Like Intertops, Mbitcasino offers free Bitcoin withdrawals.
While these sites are currently safe, it never hurts to contact state and congressional representatives to voice your opinion that online gambling should be regulated. Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey have already done this and all three states have successful regulated online gaming industries. There are also several states that spread lottery games over the Internet.
