Americas Cardroom Review

Americas Cardroom is the flagship skin on the Winning Poker Network. It is one of the smaller online poker networks accepting US players but it’s success comes down to its excellent customer service and fast payouts, which is obviously really important in the current US online poker climate.

Software

Americas Cardroom uses an updated version of the Yatahay software to power their poker site. It is far from being the best in the industry but it’s functional and it runs pretty smoothly. There are numerous custom filters at the top of the lobby to make it easy to find suitable games. You can expect all of the standard features like auto top up, player notes, tiling tables, or you can just manually resize the table windows.

Poker Games

At the cash tables you can expect to play the usual Hold’em, Omaha, and Stud games, but in addition to this, you can find other unique poker games such as 32 Card Draw, 3 Card Poker, and Telesina in order to satisfy every poker player.

As can be expected the majority of the player traffic is focused around the No Limit Hold’em tables with decent action up to the $1/$2 blinds level. There are usually a few low limit Pot Limit tables running but there isn’t much action for the other games.

The tournament schedule at Americas Cardroom is packed with plenty of exciting tournaments to play in. This poker site is the home for the serious tournament poker player with 10 big guaranteed tournaments running every single day. And if you haven’t got the time to play in a regular tournament, you’ll be pleased to know that there is a good selection of turbo guaranteed tourneys. There is also a multitude of other tournament formats to keep everyone happy including Sit N Go’s, Re-entry Tournaments, Re-buy Tournaments, and Satellite Tournaments.

Speaking of Sit N Go’s, Americas Cardroom features a Sit & Go race, allowing players to collect additional prize money simply for playing SNG and On Demand tournaments. Every week players will have the chance to win the race. And it doesn’t matter if you win or lose a SNG you will get ranked on the SNG leaderboard.

Americas Cardroom sponsors the Latin Series of Poker, and the Punta Cana Poker Classic, so expect to find many satellites for these live events in the lobby prior to the commencement of these tournaments.

Download

As of right now, the software for Americas Cardroom is only available for Windows computers. There is a notification on the official website that informs readers that they have intentions of releasing native apps for mobile devices.

Promotions

First time depositors would be glad to know that Americas Cardroom offers a 100% first deposit bonus up to the value of $1,000. This is one of the biggest welcome bonuses in the industry and provides a nice boost to your initial bankroll.

To earn the bonus you simply have to play in any real money ring games or tourneys and accumulate rank points. Clearing the welcome bonus will require you earn 55 rank points per $1 of the bonus, and the bonus dollars will get released into your poker account in increments of $5.

From the moment you make your first deposit you’ll also be eligible to play in a weekly $250 New Depositors Freeroll. By making a deposit, you will also get to be a part of the Elite Benefits Loyalty Program and purchase stuff from the Elite Benefits Online Poker Store, so there are a multitude of benefits that come your way when you make a real money deposit.

With Freerolls on Demand, Americas Cardroom is offering more freeroll tournaments than ever before. As soon as the late registration of one freeroll tournament ends, a new freeroll will be available to register in. This can be a great way to build up a nice bankroll from scratch. By regularly playing ACR freerolls you’ll get to fare well in the ACR Freeroll Leaderboard, and at the end of the competition the top ten placed finishers will be awarded with tournament tokens into real money tournaments on the site.

Deposit Methods

There are a number of different flexible options to deposit funds into your poker account at Americas Cardroom. The minimum amount you can deposit is $50. Players from the United States will be able to deposit with Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Western Union or Money Gram. Withdrawals are typically cashed out using regular checks or Money Gram.

Overall

All in all, with a large number of tournament options and considering the fact that this poker room accepts US players, it’s not hard to see why this is a good option for players who are from the United States. Keep in mind, however, that players in Nevada, Delaware, and New Jersey are blocked from creating accounts and playing at this poker room.
