Carbon Poker US Players
|2015 update – Carbon remains open but no longer accepts affiliate signups, so we can no longer offer support or exclusive promotions. For a rakeback-friendly room, we recommend Americas Cardroom.|
Carbon Poker is one of a handful of online poker rooms to still accept players residing in the US, pending future legislation that allows more sites to do so.
In order of size – number of players, or ‘traffic’ – the top 3 US friendly poker sites heading into 2014 are:
- Bovada (the US facing part of Bodog)
- Carbon Poker (sharing its playerpool on the Merge Network with Aced)
- Americas Cardroom (sharing its playerpool on the Winning Network with Black Chip)
