Americas Cardroom, the flagship skin on the Winning Poker Network has started accepting Bitcoins as a deposit method. Upon using this method to deposit the virtual currency will be converted into USD for use at the tables, and as yet the withdrawal option of Bitcoins is not available. This is the first move from a major US friendly online poker room regarding Bitcoin, although it can of course be used in Seals With Clubs too. Other skins on the Winning Poker Network are soon to be following suit with Black Chip Poker, True Poker, Bookmaker, BetDSI and BetCRIS adding the payment method in the near future. The minimum depositing amount using Bitcoin is just $5.00 with the maximum set at $1,000 although that is set to rise in the near future.
Americas Cardroom accepts players from across the US and has, over the last few years, been a huge success story continuously growing. At present players will receive a 100% up to $1,000 welcome bonus and seats to the new depositor freerolls. There’s always plenty of promotional activity at ACR and they are big on sending players to great land based events such as the Punta Cana Poker Classic and The Latin Series of Poker. With plenty of players at tables and liquidity never a problem the addition of Bitcoin deposits will only mean that traffic will improve further and this is another great move from the solid poker room that is Americas Cardroom.
