Americas Cardroom review
Americas Cardroom is one of the most famous skins of the WPN network, the leader among open platforms that accept players from America. Moreover, it is for ACR that nearly the largest part of the recreational traffic from the USA comes to the network. The poker site is fully licensed on Malta and registered in Cyprus.
All the games in Americas Cardroom are played in dollars, and the peak times fall on evenings EST, which is only logical, or on night-morning European time.
WPN is one of the fast growing networks that has already secured its place in the TOP 10 of the Pokerscout rating.
You can find dozens of tables with great line-ups of NLHE cash games 24/7. Up to 15 tables at NL50–100. About 5–7 active tables at NL200–400. At NL600+, the action is daily, as a rule, at 2–6 tables in the peak times. The heads-up tables are also active, the "King of the Hill" system is available.
The traffic in PLO is approximately 30–40% lower than that in NLHE, and is divided in the same proportion.
The SNG lobby is primarily represented by heads-up tournaments, where you can get spontaneous action at the stakes of $200+.
The Jackpot SNG tournaments — Spin-n-Go analogue — are worth mentioning as a separate point. This discipline, so well-loved by the recreational players, to Our opinion, exemplifies the Spins as such: classic structure, buy-ins of up to $40 and cashback of up to 90–100% thanks to the VIP-system and a weekly race.
The MTT section keeps up: the WPN network holds the largest online tournaments with the players from the USA, including the regular $1,000,000 GTD tournament and series with guarantees of up to $14,000,000. It goes without saying that daily and weekly tournaments with smaller guarantees are available too.
Americas Cardroom utilizes the software based on the Yatahay platform, just like all the WPN skins do. The software enters the TOP quality rating among the underground poker sites: comfortable lobby with lots of filters, fully customizable and resizeable tables with the time-bank, auto-rebuy and other necessary functions. Obviously, multi-tabling is smooth and beyond criticism. Small buttons and periodic "freezing" of the client program can be designated as the main downsides. However, the client program is stable and disconnect-proof.
The ACR client program is available only for Windows users, but Mac OS users can try the beta-version of their client — first in the WPN network.
Americas Cardroom supports the Holdem Manager and PokerTracker by default.
And, finally, all our players are eligible for a free branded layout for the poker site.
The poker site supports all the standard deposit/withdrawal methods (given the state of market): bank cheques, Mastercard, Visa, Bitcoin and all sorts of e-wallets. As a rule, the minimal withdrawal to the e-wallets is $50, while for bank cards and cheques — $100. Processing of the payment usually takes 2–5 days.
UPD: Since 2017 Room removed credit cards from the list of withdrawal options.
Representing the fastest growing network in the world, Americas Cardroom deserves the attention of the players of all disciplines and stakes. High traffic allowing even hardcore multi-tablers find enough tables, decent software, moderate rake as these things go and honest weighted-contributed rakeback make ACR a competitive player in the market that suits first of all the players from the North America and Europe.
