Update – Check out our list of US poker sites in August 2012
There are only a few solid U.S. poker sites in July of 2012. US poker rooms seem to be in decline everywhere else and these three survivors have been picking up all of the excess traffic. US poker sites have become rare since Black Friday but a few have been able to stand up to the US government. In this blog post I will outline the best U.S.A poker sites in July, 2012. I have negotiated a special sign up bonus package at each of the following poker sites. One of these new US poker rooms is as large (financially) as Pokerstars and Party Poker combined. These are not small time operations and they are backed by governments around the world.
Bovada Poker is by far the best US poker site. They have slightly less overall traffic than our #2 pick but they make up for that by offering the world’s largest sports book and casino. There are well over 10,000 US poker players at Bovada’s tables during peak hours. Because so many sports bettors and casino gamblers can be found donking off money at the poker tables Bovada is the easiest poker site to win money at. The software at Bovada Poker was designed with fast paced multi-table players in mind. The Hold’em action at Bovada is simply sick. You cannot use data-mining services like Sharkscope at Bovada. This has brought many fish to the tables. The Royal Flush Jackpot and Badbeat Jackpot at Bovada are also popular.
US poker players can access the sports book and casino with one single account. Funding your account at Bovada is easy and instant. They offer a wide range of deposit and payout options. You will not need to setup any annoying e-wallet accounts or anything like that. Using the link below to visit Bovada will grant you the following bonuses:
Carbon Poker has always been one of Americas favorite poker rooms. They have recently improved their poker room in several ways and according to real money traffic monitoring web sites they are the largest US poker site and rank 6th in traffic world wide! Few US poker sites are open in July of 2012 and a list of them wouldn’t be accurate without Carbon Poker. Tens of thousands of US, Canadian and European players can be found at their tables 24.7. Carbon Poker is home to a $400,000+ Badbeat Jackpot, the largest online. They have also built several casino games into their poker software. Depositing is easy at Carbon Poker, even for Americans. We have worked out a special bonus at this room but it is only open for a limited time:
BetOnline Poker has had some technical issues lately but they are all fixed now. Bet Online is one of the world’s leading sports book and casino brands. the poker room is a recent addition but it has quickly climbed the ranks. The thing that makes BetOnline Poker so popular is the banking. US poker sites tend to accept few deposit options and can only payout via check. BetOnline Poker blows the competition away in this regard. There has never been a single US poker player that was unable to deposit at this room. They accept more instant options than Bovada and Carbon Poker combined. Putting money onto a poker room is not as important as getting it off and this is where BetOnline excels. They are the fastest paying USA friendly poker site in the world.
They give you three different check cashout speed options. You can receive your check within 48 hours. It costs a few extra bucks but that never bothered me. They give you one free highspeed check cashout per month anyway. If you need the cash in your hand within 24 hours you can use Western Union or Moneygram. All you need to do is go to Jewel or Wal-mart or any Currency Exchange and you can pickup your poker winnings within 24 hours, in cash! There are of course many other options like high-speed bank wires and e-checks.
Our exclusive deposit bonus at BetOnline Poker includes the following:
That completes this list of the best US poker sites in July 2012.
