Americas Cardroom Short Review

Americas Cardroom (ACR) is the latest skin to join the rapidly expanding Winning Poker Network (former Yatahay Network). It is one of the few reputable online poker rooms to openly welcome players from the US. Due to an aggressive television marketing campaign in the US, combined with a high promotional investment for their players, Americas Cardroom has seen impressive growth in the short time since the re-launch.

The room offers some of the loosest cash games and softest tournament fields anywhere. Americas Cardroom gives players a solid $1,000 first deposit bonus which can be easily cleared. It consistently offers players great value with monthly promotions, such as the point races, our Elites Benefit Program, and growing guarantee tournaments.


Americas Cardroom Review – Full Review

Americas Cardroom recently re-launched its website on the rapidly expanding Winning Poker Network (former Yatahay 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 Cardroom has gone the other direction and invested heavily in the US poker player market.

Americas Cardroom has purchased Doyles Room 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 4,500 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.

Bonuses and Promotions

Americas Cardroom runs a wide variety of promotions every month and gives superb value to both tournament and cash players.

100% First Deposit Bonus Up to $1,000 and Freeroll

New players are eligible to receive $1,000 free on their first deposit when signing up through RakebackPros. We found the bonus relatively easy to clear as it is released in $1 increments for every 27.5 Award Points Earned. Players clearing a bonus with rakeback will yield a total of approximately 47% rakeback. The bonus terms must be met within 60 days or any uncleared bonus will expire. Americas Cardroom provides a nice way to boost your bankroll once you’ve made your first deposit by entering you into a $250 freeroll every Saturday at 12:05 ET for the month.

27% Rakeback Paid Weekly

Americas Cardroom offers RakebackPros sign-ups 27% rakeback, based on the weighted contributed method. This method of rakeback allocation takes into account the percentage of money that you contribute to each pot and/or your tournament buy-in fees. Your rakeback is determined by this number minus deductions which includes bonuses and cash-based promotions such as the Monthly Points Race. Rakeback payments are made every Wednesday for rake generated during the previous Monday through Sunday period.

If you already have a player account with Americas Cardroom, but do NOT have rakeback, please contact us. If your existing Americas Cardroom account is not tracked to another affiliate, there is a chance we might be able to retag it under us and provide you with 27% rakeback. For more details, please visit our Rakeback Existing Account page.

Points Races

This is a unique spin on rake races gives tournament players the opportunity to compete for extra cash as well. Players earn for playing ring games and tournaments. The point’s 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.

Elites Benefits

Americas Cardroom runs one of the most generous reward programs in the online poker industry. Every time you are dealt in a real money hand or play a real money tournament you will earn Combat Points. These points will open the door for special bonuses, cash rewards, and tons of amazing merchandise that can be purchased in our online Store. But if you really put your nose to the grindstone, you can even earn extra cash by unlocking the medals of achievement.

Bad Beat Jackpot

Americas Cardroom 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.

Software and Graphics

The Winning Network recently upgraded their software which has given the network and Americas Cardroom 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 Elites benefit program. The software allows players to easily navigate between tournaments and cash games, and filter their preferred playing size and limit, and game selection.

Americas Cardroom has been consistently increasing their tournament guarantees as their traffic picks up. Every weeknight Americas Cardroom hosts a $50,000 Guaranteed. On the weekends as the volume of players increase, they host a $100,000 Guaranteed on Saturday’s and top out a $500k Sunday Night Nickel.

Americas Cardroom does offer unique tournaments that you’ll rarely find on any of the other online card rooms. These include re-entry tournaments, 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.


Although the traffic is slightly smaller, you cannot find looser players anywhere on the internet. The Winning Network supports multiple large sports books that supply an ample amount of fish craving action once their sports bets are finished for the day. Regardless of the buy-in or size of the stake, you’ll find some loose players to spice up the game.
