Full Americas Card Room Review
Americas Card Room recently re-launched its website on the rapidly expanding Winning Poker Network. They have a solid reputation as they were one of the premiere poker websites to open back in 1991 and operated successfully for years before refocusing on other markets in the sports book industry. Since the other major online websites pulled out of the US, Americas Card Room has gone the other direction and invested heavily in the US poker player market. ACR has purchased DoylesRoom.com and folded their player and affiliate base into theirs.
Traffic has seen a steady increase that can be credited to an aggressive television marketing campaign in the US, combined with a high promotional investment for their players. Traffic peaks around 500 players generally in the evening but we’re seeing these numbers rise consistently and encouraged by the growth we’ve seen in the short time since the re-launch.
Americas Cardroom Bonuses and Promotions
ACR runs a wide variety of promotions every month and gives superb value to both tournament and cash players.
- Get a 100% Welcome Bonus Up to $1,000 on your first deposit plus
- Login each day between 00:00:00 ET and 23:59:59 ET for the first 20 days after you make your first deposit and collect $50 Free Cash. If you login every day and claim your cash card and after 20 days you will have $50 Free.
- You will also get entry into the $250 New Depositor Freerolls that run up to four times a month every Saturday at 12:05 ET.
All new players are eligible to receive $1000 free on their first deposit. We found the bonus relatively easy to clear as it is released in $1 increments for every 27.5 Player Points Earned. Players receive one Frequent Player Point for every $0.01 of rake generated. ACR provides a nice way to boost your bankroll once you’ve made your first deposit.
This is a unique spin on rake races gives tournament players the opportunity to compete for extra cash as well. Players earn points by generating FPPs for both ring game and tournament play. The points races are very generous and range from $30,000 prize pools all the way up to $65,000 prize pools for month. Even players that don’t play every day have an opportunity to earn some bonus cash at the end of the month if they show some consistency.
Bad Beat Jackpot
Americas Card Room offers Bad Beat Jackpot tables. As of late the jackpots have to jackpots awarding hundreds of thousands of dollars. The bad beat jackpot qualifies when a quad 88’s or better is beaten. There is a fair mix of games for those who don’t want to partake in the Bad Beat Jackpot.
The rake at Americas Cardroom is as much as 50% less than the rake at Merge. In fact, Merge recently made things worse for players by increasing their rake. Check out the comparison charts to see the difference.
Americas Card Room Tournaments
Americas Card Room has been consistently increasing their tournament guarantees as their traffic picks up. Every weeknight Americas Card Room hosts a $5,000 Guaranteed. On the weekends as the volume of players increase, they host a $7,500 Guaranteed on Saturday and top out at a $6,000 and $15,000 guarantee every Sunday. ACR does offer unique tournaments that you’ll rarely find on any of the other online card rooms. These include time based and hand based tournaments where the winners are determined once an allotted amount of time or hands have been dealt based upon chip stack size. Smaller guarantees run daily often with overlays and the amount of satellites offered for the weekly guarantees gives great value to the smaller tournament player. The structures to their guarantees are solid with deep stacks and longer levels to give players more play.
Software and Graphics
The Winning Network recently upgraded their software with a new IGSoft which has given the network and ACR a huge boost. The software is very user friendly and allows for easy multi-tabling options, clean graphics, and smooth gameplay. The upgrade introduced more tournament varieties, such as the hand based and time based tournaments, as well as bigger promotion options such as a bad beat jackpot and the free parking offer. The software allows players to easily navigate between tournaments and cash games, and filter their preferred playing size and limit, and game selection.
