Online Poker Sites That Still Take US Customers

Three online poker websites that are still accepting customers from the US showed dramatic growth in the last 12 days since the April 15 indictments of PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker and UB.com.  Two of those companies, PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker, immediately fled the US market.  UB.com continues to allow current customers to play in real cash games. 

Merge Poker, home of Gambling911.com marquee sponsor Lock Poker, has witnessed a mind-blowing 61 percent increase in traffic since the crackdown. 

Bodog and Cake have seen around a 30 percent increase in traffic. 

The Cereus Network (UB.com and Absolute Poker) has lost nearly 2/3 of its traffic.  Should the company decide to reopen its online card room to the US market, they are likely to take the lead among US-facing online poker rooms.  The company will need to locate new payment processors.

European poker players are reporting swift payouts from UB.com, however, a $250 max per week payout structure has been implemented for the time being.
