You can still play poker online - legally!

So it's been a 18 months since the Unlawful Internet Gambling Ban was passed. However millions of US based players are still playing poker online.

Are they doing this illegally?

The simple answer is no.

The law only stops financial institutions from conducting transactions with gambling or poker sites. This has made it a lot more difficult to fund your account, and most poker sites who were based in the US have stopped accepting US players.

However some big sites have stayed open, and there are still ways to get money into your account.

This site has a complete list of all sites which still accept US players and also details of how you can fund your account. I try and update it weekly so all the information should be up to date.

There's also some great news for Online Poker with the return of Doyle's Room to the American market.

Doyle's Room will hopefully be the first of many large poker sites to return to the US scene and we hope you can support their bravery in taking a stand by depositing and playing a few games. See below for a review of this site.

Doyle's Room Returns to the USA!!

There was great news for the whole poker community last month when Doyle's Room announced a return to the accepting US based players. They are the first major poker site to take this step and there are rumors of others, including Party Poker returning.

This is a clear indication that online poker is back to stay so show your support by playing at this great room.

The software is superb and easy to use and there is a varied spread of games, including all the H.O.R.S.E. games.

There are many guaranteed tournaments and there's a good chance you could play against the legendary Doyle Brunson himself, or one of the other pros who play here.

The bonus is a whopping 35% of your first deposit and there's a special offer for US players which would give you free copies of Doyle's Super System books.
