Americas Cardroom, part of the Winning Poker Network (Yatahay), completed the acquisition of Doyle’s room in October 2011. Since then, it is emerging as one of the front runners as a venue for US players behind Merge Network’s Carbon Poker after the US government indicted Bodog.com after a 6 year investigation.
Players can expect the same kind of support, cashout timing and similar gameplay as on the old Doyle’s room. What is interesting with this site is that their promotions are clear, simple and interesting. Besides freerolls and a 100% sign-up bonus, Americas Cardroom (ACR) offers a 27% rakeback paid directly to your poker account! This means there is no need to manage a separate rakeback account with a rakeback provider and that the rake paid back to you is deposited directly into your poker account. Rakeback is a form of incentive by which part of the rake you pay to the poker site is paid back to you. So for example if you pay $100 in rake or tournament fees, you get $27 back as a bonus whether or not you won or lost overall. ACR pays this bonus on every Wednesday for the previous week’s gameplay between Monday and Sunday. You can take advantage of this offer by clicking on the banner below and downloading their software. You will automatically be signed up for the rakeback promotion.
