Recent legislation in the US may have limited the choice for fans of online poker who live there, but there are still plenty of options when it comes to finding poker sites for US players. Whether you prefer to compete for play chips or want to battle it out for real money, various online poker sites still accept players from the US and offer a wide range of cash games and tournaments, as well as generous signup bonuses and other promotions.
Pokerstars.com is not just one of the better known sites still accepting US players; it’s the world’s largest online poker site. Hundreds of thousands of players call PokerStars home, which means that it’s easy to find a game no matter what time of the day or night you log on. Once known primarily for its tournaments, PokerStars has grown to be a big cash game site as well, in addition to being the online home for many of the game’s top pros such as Daniel Negreanu.
Other popular sites that still accept US players include Ultimatebet.com, Full Tilt, and Absolute Poker. All are popular sites with large players bases, offering cash games, tournaments, and promotions such as online qualifiers for major live poker events such as the World Series of Poker and the Aussie Millions. Full Tilt is currently the second largest online site and the home of Phil Ivey and other top pros; in most Full Tilt tourneys players receive a cash bonus and special t-shirt if they successfully knock out on of Full Tilt’s official pro players.
