Americas Cardroom (ACR)


About Americas Cardroom (ACR)

Americas Cardroom (ACR) was owned by BetCris (which is one of the largest sportsbooks around) and was part of MyPokerNetwork. At one time, ACR was a decent site to play at. Gary Carson, the popular poker author, was often seen playing there many times.

They had some of the best freerolls around - they are "rebuy freerolls" where players could enter the tournament for free and were allowed $3 rebuys and $6 add-ons - so a 1st place finisher could win a few hundred dollars without having to even buy in. They had a $25 "High Hand of the Hour" bonus available every day and were one of the few sites to have a prop program where they paid players to play. Their software was unique because allowed players to place a straddle bet and to chop the blinds. They ran their site using the popular Dobrosoft software before switching to Ongame. But traffic declined and they fell off the radar.

Screenshots above are misleading, it appears nothing like those, It uses the same GUI graphic user Interface engine as Thepokerroom, where the characters are crude, token black guy etc, The only funny thing is u can vote people of the table.The tournaments section was a joke, free roles and play money Multi tourneys non-existent. Theres alot of better sites out there so give this one a passing miss.Best site so far Absolute Poker, closely followed by Party, but the later lacks in freerolls. Only 2 Multi's a day.

Just a truly trashy site. Never have I been to a more tinny poker room. No features. Slow transfers. Lots a trash talkers too. Question is, why would anybody play here? Really puzzles me. No tournaments of real substance. I gave it a rating of 2 which was generous.

I like ACR and have done well$. Their promos are great, especially the wsop freerolls and Chris Moneymaker poker cruise tourneys. Traffic is way up this year and tourneys fill much faster than before.

Graphics are excellent. Server is terrible - kicked off alot; site has been down alot in the past few weeks. Few players. Tech support is poor. Freerolls are good. I agree with dqjeff - don't leave alot of money at the site. There is something lacking... Stability, integrity. I find that they have a higher tolerance for player's being abusive towards on another than other sites I play at.

have done well on this site, never a problem with cashouts. good fun with chat. I do seem to get kicked off, but that may be my program. Need more players if they want to continue. Wouldnt be surprised to see them close. Dont keep a lot of funds in this site

you might want to go ahead and bend ver and drop your pants and take your reeming like a man if you play this site

its a nice site but theres hardley enough people to get the tables going..the upper limit tournaments take forever to fill. although u can only cash out once a week i got mine like the day after i requested it so that was nice..they need way more people though

Can only make 1 cashout per week, even with Neteller! Also not very many ppl play here and the rakes are worse then other sites.

ACR is average. The software has nice options (hide play money, chop the blinds). There is not a lot of traffic here. They have decent low-limit NL games going and good money-added freerolls.
