US Player Poker Sites

The online poker world is changing every day it seems but there are still some great sites that are happy to accept US players. US player poker sites are alive and well. Luckily there are still some poker sites out there that have not succumbed to the ridiculous ban imposed by Unlawful Internet Gambling Enforcement Act of October 13th 2006, here are some of the best:

Carbon Poker

Carbon Poker has been around since before the ban was imposed and has shown itself to be a robust and reliable place to play poker online. It has our highest recommendation for this reason. You'll find a lot of great low money poker tournaments at Carbon Poker with high levels of traffic meaning the you won't have to wait for too long to take your seat at the tournament table. Nobody likes to have to wait for ages for the tournament to start after signing up to play so this is another great reason to play at Carbon Poker.

The cash tables are happy hunting grounds for the more experienced player, even if you are just average but are patient enough to play a waiting game, rich pickings can be available.

Bovada Poker

Bovada Poker is a relatively new site but it is linked to established site Bodog so has a great level of credibility. Bodog no longer accepts US players so they set up Bovada to accommodate them. At the site you will find freeroll poker tournaments but they are usually of relatively low value in terms of prize funds and are vastly oversubscribed so you need to be really early to claim your place.

There are however some very good tournaments that are low-priced entry and will not only give you a far better chance of winning but also you will win a lot more money.


Please note that if you live in the following states, you may still be blocked from the sites that are still accepting US players:  Illinois, Indiana,  Louisiana, Michigan, Nevada, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin.


Payment Processors: As of January 2007, Neteller decided to stop allowing poker players from US to use their service. Although this was a bit of a setback, more payment services are available and the likes of Skrill (Moneybookers) stepped in to fill the void. As of summer 2013 Neteller have decided that they might get back into the US player market.
