Americas Cardroom Open Americas CardroomNov 06, 2011
In terms of software, Americas Cardroom boasts a very good system with an entirely different style compared to older poker tables. You will find the poker lobby cozy, and in fact, it feels “real”. It loads up fast as well and it is really smooth from login, to chosing games and start playing. The poker room has a more personalized feel on it, since the tables look very “old-school” and it does not have a 3D option. However, despite the lack of 3D option, which can be distracting anyway, the tables do not lack functionality. The tables possess useful options like fold and show function, straddle tables, and resizing and cascading abilities.
You can see all the past betting actions, including who bets and calls and the amount of bet as well. The Yatahay software that is used for Americas Cardroom is developed with the consultation from Mason Malmuth and David Sklansky, who helped developed a software with anti-collusion technology that flags distrustful activities automatically, even before the security team reviews them.
Americas Cardroom Playability
The Americas Cardroom poker rooms are easy to navigate using simple buttons and with the old-school feel that will leave you with a familiar sense like you are actually playing in a real poker room. The time bar is really useful, plus the decision bar has all the colors that keep you interested without taking your attention out of the game. The design of the lobby is great as well, but the separate window that keeps opening when you change from tournaments to cash tables and vice versa takes some getting used to.
Americas Cardroom Traffic
If you are expecting an extra flow of players, then like with any other poker sites, you will be a little disappointed. It is not as slow as other sites that are not accepting US players, but it is still at a slow pace. Americas Cardroom is among the very few sites that still allow US players, so it is still gathering players; slowly but surely. Don’t worry, peak hours are usually exciting. We are all hoping for a permanent solution with the U.S. Gambling problems.
Americas Cardroom Promotions
Americas Cardroom does not require a signup code; and as first time depositor, you will be paid First Time Deposit Bonus held out in $1 increments every time you earn 55 Rank Points. Only new players are eligible for this point system.
On the other hand, if you make an initial deposit from Sunday to Thursday, you are entitled for the $250 Saturday Freeroll. Free Parking Rewards are also at stake.
Americas Cardroom Support
Since Americas Cardroom is one of the oldest online poker sites, it is also considered as one of the well-established. Its customer support is superb and you can always call the direct line or send an email anytime of the day, any day of the week. The live chat is ‘real’ and unlike other sites, you can actually chat with a rep if something’s gone amiss. Best of all, with Americas Cardroom, cash outs are really fast.
Americas Cardroom Review
When Americas Cardroom absorbed Doyles Room, all the Doyles room members were transferred to the new brand, along with all their balance. Generally, the software stays the same, players just encountered some minor tweaks here and there, but basically just with the site’s appearance. It is relatively easy to join the site, given that you are on legal age, and you have money to spend. Major payment methods are accepted and you won’t get technically-challenged playing on-site. Players definitely love the software, the network and the firm support features, complete with a REAL 24 hour live chat. If only the on-site traffic will improve on the following weeks, then it will be perfect for most players.
