U.S. online poker players are a demanding bunch, expecting a lot from their poker site of choice, and Americas Cardroom (ACR) has delivered.
The site’s tournament schedule has expanded since 2015 began, with a new Sunday Special added to the $50k GTD event. The new addition has a progressive prize pool that’s also guaranteed, rising every week as long as the guarantee is reached. With a $215 buy-in, the Sunday Special guarantee has doubled to $70,000 for next Sunday after first being hosted as a $35k GTD.
Last month’s $1 million Winning Millions was a huge success, so much so that the event will be repeated in April. Set for April 12 at 3:00 p.m., the next edition of the $1 million guaranteed has been given the new title of “Million Dollar Sundays.” It is quite evident by the name that April’s event will not be the last featuring a guaranteed $1 million prize pool that promises $200k to the winner.
Reasons to Play at ACR
The ACR website lists six specific reasons why U.S. players who haven’t already done so should make the poker room their home. The first of those reasons is that cashouts and withdrawals are designed for U.S. players. Those residing in 43 of the 50 states are welcome to deposit and play anytime, day or night.
Listed as the second reason are ACR’s fast payouts. Whether it’s a money transfer, check, debit card or e-wallet, ACR promises a quick turnaround in which 95% of withdrawal requests are processed in just 24 hours. That is super important to U.S. players and perhaps the biggest reason why ACR has skyrocketed in popularity as of late.
A fair playing environment where the possibility of cheating or collusion is taken seriously and monitored extensively is reason no. 3. Players who suspect that something may be amiss during any games need only provide the information to customer support at ACR to have the matter investigated.
Good Mix of Players
My personal favorite of reasons to play at ACR is the fact that the players found there are of every skill level. Without mentioning any other sites by name, I have played at other poker rooms where the players seemed to all be pros, making it that much more difficult to win. Not so at ACR, where you will come across fish as well as sharks, which is the way it should be.
Top-notch security is the fifth reason to become a loyal ACR player, where your account and personal information is highly guarded and protected. Player funds are kept in a segregated account, including any bonus money received either through deposit bonuses or rewards and benefits tied to ACR’s generous player loyalty program.
And finally, reason number six is the first-time deposit bonus available to one and all. At 100% up to $1,000, the signup bonus amount rivals the best that the industry has to offer and allows 60 full days in which to earn the points required to clear the bonus. Remember that when you are going sign up for an account you will need to fill in a bonus code. You can find a valid ACR bonus code here.
