Top U.S. online poker rooms for American poker players in 2017
It might be hard to believe, but a decade
ago, Americans were allowed to play at almost any online
poker room. Party Poker, Titan Poker and Poker Stars
were accepting players from the United States. Those
were the days when you only had to worry about your play at
the poker tables, and not worry about whether you were
playing at a shady online poker room or if the U.S.
government was going to seize your players account and the
money you had in your NETeller account.
The online poker world in the United States wasn't all that bad until April 15, 2011. That is when the shit hit the fan. Ub.com, Absolute Poker, Full Tilt Poker and Pokerstars were all forced to stop taking bets from Americans. Soon after, many of the other poker rooms that previously accepted Americans, stopped all new sign ups from the U.S.
The top online poker rooms in the U.S. for 2018 is Bet Online and Ignition Poker. Poker bankrolls should not be considered money in the bank if you are not using one of the poker rooms that we have listed below. I consider the poker rooms listed here safe to carry a modest to large bankroll. You should try to maintain only a relatively modest bankroll in your poker accounts and your bitcoin wallet, unless you are speculating on the bitcoin spot price.
