How big is PlayersOnly?

With 100s of players online at peak times, supplemented with sportsbook and casino players, the PlayersOnly tables are soft and plentiful.

Is it good value?

The easy competition at PlayersOnly.com compensates for the lack of a VIP Rakeback program. The 200% up to $5,000 signup bonus is clearable at 6.67% initial rakeback.

PlayersOnly – US Only

Unlike other Merge Gaming Network skins (e.g. Carbon Poker) PlayersOnly only accept US signups. Thanks to PlayersOnly’s large casino and sportsbook player base, many of those who venture onto the poker tables are recreational players.

US players who’d like to play in a larger playerpool against both US and RoW players may consider Americas Cardroom.

The columns ‘Rake per 100 Hands ($)’ and ‘Rake Paid per 100 Hands (BB)’ are based on 80.7 million hands of analysis on the Merge Network by the Rakeback.com Geek Squad .  The rake structure shown below came into effect May 1, 2013.

PlayersOnly Deposit Bonus – 6.67% Rakeback

PlayersOnly offers a deposit bonus of 200% up to $5,000 for first-time depositors. Bonuses releases in $5 increments to your account for every 750 VIP points you earn ($75 in rake paid).

Your bonus is valid for 90 days after downloading the client and depositing. Given the current traffic and maximum stakes few players will be able to clear 100% of their deposit bonus, however while it lasts it equates to an extra 6.67% in rakeback.

History of Changes

  • 2006 – PlayersOnly opens on the Cake Network (today rebranded as the Revolution Gaming Network and including other US friendly rooms such as Juicy Stakes), primarily focused on sportsbetting
  • April 15, 2010 – PlayersOnly and Sportsbook.com move to the Merge Gaming Network
  • May 14, 2013 – PlayersOnly and Sportsbook.com, owned by Jazette Enterprises, are segregated from the wider Merge playerpool. The segregation affected all cash games, SNGs and MTTs
  • July 15, 2014 – Merge skins make the final change to their VIP programs, removing VIP point to tournament ticket conversion, which followed the removal of up to 40% VIP rakeback. PlayersOnly also only offers rewards in the form of its deposit bonus and occasional reload offers
