It’s been a couple of chaotic days in the online gambling industry as the US DoJ decided to seize the domains of PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker and UB.com. The latest developments are that the DoJ have allowed PokerStars to get their PokerStars.com domain back and get the site up and running on the .com domain again as long as they pay all outstanding debts to US player and don’t let US players take part in any real money poker games.
Most sites are recommending Intertops Poker and Lock Poker which is supposed to work fine for US players even after the April 15th seize. Now we can’t vouch for LockPoker as we have never even heard about that site but we know for a fact that the Intertops.com products and payment processing is top notch when it comes to catering for the US market. These guys have been around for a long time and even after the UIGEA back in 2006 they are still able to process credit card deposit from US players with a 90% success rate and that’s pretty good in today’s online gambling climate.
The Intertops.com Poker guys are currently running a great promotion in order to attract PokerStars players over to the Sportsbook.com Poker room with a 50% bonus up to $250 on your first deposit. Now this isn’t your normal poker bonus which will clear after X amount of hands or player points. This bonus is instantly credited to your account upon your first deposit. Now that’s something we haven’t seen since the good old days back in 2003 when online poker was booming.
If you are a PokerStars players looking for a good alternative after the 15th of April shut down then we can recommend Intertops Poker.
