Previous Weeks Freeroll News:
US Online Poker Legislation Part 2
More information for American online
poker players. This is such an important issue that this week's
Update is featuring another batch of sites where US poker players
can still play poker online.
Note that if you live in one of the
following states, you mave trouble even with some of the sites still
accepting US players: Illinois, Indiana, Louisiana,
Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, South Dakota,
Washington and Wisconsin. I know that Poker Share and Royal Vegas Poker
are refusing players from these 11 states, other sites may be the
Royal Vegas Poker
The good news for Royal Vegas Poker
players is that it's business as usual for those of you from USA.
Other than the 11 states mentioned above, USA poker players are
free to continue playing poker online at Royal Vegas.
It's the same story at Poker Share, USA
online poker players can still play there, with the exception of
the 11 locked out states. The good news is that they are
offering a massive sign up bonus for new players.
So if you're an American who wants to continue playing online poker, Poker Share is a great option for you.
Top Bet offers Omaha, 7 Card Stud and
Tournaments as well as Texas Hold'em, and is still accepting
online poker signups from America. If you're a US poker player
Top Bet is certainly worth checking out. The site uses the same
poker client as Poker Room, so you know the graphics are top

"Birthday Bash" freeroll where the winner gets a $5,200 seat in the
Barcelona Millions Ongame Poker Classic. Also, everybody who

US Online Poker Legislation
Great news if you play poker and are a
resident of USA. The recent legislation banning US citizens from playing
poker online isn't the end of the story!
Although several of the big name poker game providers have now
refused to accept players from America, there are others where you can
still play. Here's our guide to some of the best US-friendly
Poker.com have decided to still let US
poker players play online poker at their site. Here's what they have to
say on the subject:
"We just wanted to let everyone know that the proposed
legislation in the United States will have little to no affect on the
operations at Poker.com. We will not be stopping US based players from
playing at Poker.com and all player account balances are 100% safe and
will always be readily accessible. Our business is licensed and
regulated, perfectly legal under international law and we follow all
laws in the jurisdictions where our operations are based (Canada, UK,
Netherlands Antilles & Australia)."
Poker.com are one of the leading sites against the ban and they
have been seeing new signups in record numbers. More great news for
freeroll fans, there's an instant new player freeroll when you sign up
to the site.
Full Tilt Poker
Full Tilt Poker is another prominent poker site to fight the
online poker ban. You can still play at Full Tilt even if you are a
resident of USA. Here's what they say about their policy:
"While this new law has prompted some sites to announce plans to
abandon the U.S. market in coming days, we assure you that Full Tilt
Poker will continue to provide all of its players - both inside and
outside of the United States - with a full complement of real money ring
games and tournaments for their enjoyment."
We will continue to provide our players with all of the safe,
secure and convenient methods for transferring money to and from the
site. In fact, in recent discussions with our payment processors, we
have been assured that this new law will have no immediate impact on
their day-to-day business. And as always, any monies that you have on
deposit with Full Tilt Poker remain completely safe and secure.
Vegas Poker 247
Vegas Poker 247 is a site you might not be all that familiar
with, but the good news is that if you are a resident of USA, they want
Here's what they say:
"VegasPoker247 is pleased to assure poker players around the
world that they will continue to be welcome to play on our site.
VegasPoker247 is completely confident that we will be able to continue
offering our US customers the very best, safest and most secure online
poker experience available on the internet, including the fastest
deposit and payout solutions. All new and existing VegasPoker247.com
customers should feel 100% confident when playing at our tables."
The best method of transferring funds to and from your account
is now Neteller. Credit cards are likely to be refused since the
legislation so Neteller is the safest and most trustworthy way to
manage your online poker account.
is a site that dares to be different, it's not just your run of the
mill boring poker site. Live Poker has something new to offer.
Here's the deal with the freerolls on their site, I think it's
a really cool new idea. Every Wednesday they are running a $100
freeroll tournament. That's never going to get you to quit your
day job, but here's the twist:-
The tournament is open to as many people as want to play.
Registration starts at 1pm EST on the Tuesday before each
tournament, but only 50 players will actually get into the game.
They are selected at random from those who are actually on the
site at the time of the tournament. This gives you a great chance of
getting into the game, and also a great chance of winning a prize as
there are only 50 people in the tourney!
As these freerolls increase in popularity and more members
join up, the prizes will go up in line with the increase and
there will also be more regular tournaments. Furthermore, there's
a big $1500 freeroll on the second Saturday of each month.
