Updated In March, 2017 - Americas Cardroom was once a relatively unknown poker site, even just a couple of years ago. In the beginning of 2015 I had visited a poker forum hoping to find someone to buy some money I had on Lock Poker. It was at this time that I became interested in Americas Cardroom. After checking the threads for people wanting to trade – Paypal for Lock Poker – I noticed that a majority of the threads were made by people wanting money on Americas Cardroom. It was an indicator that this US poker site is much more popular than I thought. After getting a measly $.55 on the dollar for my Lock Poker money – they are close to bankruptcy and have a very bad reputation so stay away – I started researching Americas Card Room. I created an account there, read reviews (mostly useless), talked to other affiliates (much better), talked to some sports betting industry insiders (even better still) and talked to some managers at poker rooms that compete with America’s Cardroom (confidential). This 2015 Americas Cardroom review will not be filled with half-truths and outright lies. I’m not writing this in my “Signup and make me some damn money!” style. I’m going to include both bad and good, and there are a few bad things about this US friendly poker room. I have recently added a brand new US poker site in 2015: Sportsbetting.ag Poker. This Sportsbetting.ag 2015 review explains why they are one of the top USA-friendly rooms right now.

Who owns Americas Cardroom in 2015? BetCris, an online sports betting company. BetCris is 13 years old and there have been many allegations about this company. They have been accused of everything from purposely slow-paying to cheating. It is important to note that every online gambling site – even the most trusted – have countless forum threads accusing them of cheating or stealing in one form or another. The most trust poker room – Pokerstars – has been accused of every heinous crime in the book but it is safe to say that 99% of the posters are simply sore losers. BetCris does have some fishy history but that can be said about any sports betting site. I Google’d it for an hour straight and didn’t come up with anything – less than 5 years old – that would make me NOT want to play at Americas Cardroom.
They may indeed have a dark past from 2000 to 2006, as many of the complaints are during those years. It is important to note that I cannot find any serious complaints that are actually about Americas Cardroom, just their parent company Betcris. You will not find any Americas Cardroom cheating scandals or even many Americas Card Room complaints at poker forums in 2015. Americas Cardroom has been making a big comeback since 2012 and now one of the best US poker sites in 2015. This is due to their fast payouts, soft games and the complete failure of yesterday’s top US poker rooms and networks: Lock Poker (Revolution Gaming Network) & Carbon Poker (Merge Poker Network). These two networks were #1 and #2 in 2012 but rooms like Bovada Poker, BetOnline Poker and now Poker Host have replaced them. Carbon Poker is making a comeback due to outsourcing their payouts to a new company. The change has been so impressive that I have included them on my list of the best new US poker sites in 2015 and add a CarbonPoker review 2015. They may not be new but they are new to Betamu. ACR Poker has a $10 no deposit bonus in 2015, which they give you on your birthday.
The two networks mentioned above will be lucky to even be online in 2015 so fast-growing, new poker sites like Americas Cardroom and PokerHost have a lot to look forward to. I would say that this room’s parent company does indeed have a dark part but that they are perfectly safe to play at in 2015 and that they have a very bright future in the U.S. poker market – regulated or not.
Americas Cardroom would not be growing the way they are if they had many Cons. I typically tell people that Bovada and BetOnline are the best poker sites in 2015 but obviously I have added Americas Cardroom to that list and I do not do it lightly. I was actually hoping to find some dirt on them so I wouldn’t have to write reviews on Americas Cardroom for dozens of poker affiliate sites. I hate only giving two options – even if they are very good options – so I really did need this third US poker site but that doesn’t mean that I enjoy all of this writing. Here are the Pros and Cons:
I’ve already covered quite a bit about the actual poker room but I will go into more detail here. New players at ACR that sign-up using our links will receive a 100% bonus up to $1,000 and 25 tickets to the $2,500 new depositor freerolls. These events also give users a chance to win a seat to the $100,000 Main Event. The bonus at Americas Cardroom is fairly easy to clear, easier than say the bonus at a Merge Gaming skin. Americas Card Room is part of the Winning Poker Network and they have been key in doubling the real money traffic over the last 12 months. Americas Cardroom has a military themed VIP program. Here is a review of the VIP tiers:
If you used to play at Pokerstars before they stopped accepting Americans you will likely have noticed that these VIP programs are very similar. The Americas Cardroom Elite benefits are not quite as good but they are certainly better than what other U.S.A. poker sites offer in 2015. That concludes this 2015 Americas Cardroom review.
