1. BetOnline Poker
BetOnline has always been one of the most solid sports books available in the US, and when they added poker client a few years ago, the reputation from the sportsbook transferred over to the poker room making it an instant success. Since then it has continued to grow and is now the flag ship poker site on the Chico Poker Network, which is one of the busiest US poker networks.
Along with a strong reputation, BetOnline Poker also offers one of the best deposit bonuses of all poker sites, be it US friendly or not. BetOnline Poker players can access a 200% deposit bonus up to $2500 by using promo code: TTOPS. Add this to the lower standard of poker play and you can quickly see why BetOnline Poker is rated the no.1 poker site for US poker players.
2. Bovada Poker
It feels like Bodog (or Bovada depending where you are from) has been a top online poker site longer than their has been online poker. I have been in the poker industry over 10 years now, and in all those years Bodog has always been a top 3 US poker site. Bodog/Bovada are part of the PaiWangLuo/Bodog Poker Network which is the largest US poker network.
Other than changing names or adding names or an alternative name (to be honest I am not sure anymore), Bodog is flawless when it comes to offering poker to the US. Solid Tournaments, great bonuses and promos all help make Bodog one of the top us poker sites.
3. Ignition Poker
Ignition Casino is the new kid on the block when it come to US Poker Sites, but it has already made a big impact. Being a sister site to Bodog and is one reason for it success, the other is the fact that its actually a solid poker site. It shares a network with Bodog, so traffic isn’t an issue. It also has pretty cool promos most of the time and decent software. All in all a solid poker site on a reputable network.
4. SB Poker
SB Poker, also know as SportsBetting Poker is the sister site to BetOnline Poker. SB Poker, like BetOnline Poker, is on the Chico Poker Network. The strongest reason to play at SB Poker is you like easy money. The popular sportsbook means most players are fairly easy to extract money from. But in all honesty we would usually pick BetOnline Poker over SB Poker. Although SB Poker is still a solid choice for US poker players.
5. Black Chip Poker
I personally like BCP myself, but I have spoke to a few online poker players and they tell me they prefer Americas Cardroom. The problem is I have the final say and thats why Black Chip Poker is in the no.5 spot when it comes to the best US poker sites. In honesty Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker are very similar. They share a player pool, have very similar tournaments, and next to the same promos. The only thing I like more about Black Chip Poker is the branding and thats why its above Americas Cardroom in the Rankings
6. Americas Cardroom
Americas Cardroom started its journey as Doyles Room names after the Poker Legend Doyle Brunson. Since being rebranded as Americas Cardroom it has became the flagship site on the second biggest US poker network, Winning Poker Network. Between it and BCP, these sites have the coolest Poker promotions of any of the US poker sites. A slight lack of trust in the brand is the only reason Americas Cardroom and BCP aren’t top 3 US poker sites.
One of the oldest Poker sites still left. Intertops has managed to survive through the toughest times in the poker industry and is still standing. Some say when A.I takes over and kills everyone, the only Online Poker site left will be Intertops. On a serious note though, minus a few outdated graphics, Intertops is one of the most trusted brands in online poker. Must add for all US poker players.
8. True Poker
Also on the popular winning poker network, True Poker is a solid poker site even though it is slightly less known than some of the bigger sites such as Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker on the network. True Poker is a solid site, but we would recommend poker players choose Americas Cardroom or Black Chip Poker as better options.

Things to consider when choosing to play at a US Poker Site
In the wake of Black Friday the options for US-based online poker rooms has shrunk to just a handful of online poker rooms still operating in the market. Fortunately for US players there are still some very well-respected poker rooms in the market, with strong player bases and excellent promotions to take advantage of. In this article we’ll take you through the different things you should be looking for when choosing a US online poker site.
With most of the US market waiting on the sidelines for some type of legislation that will legalize and regulate the industry, US-facing online poker sites tend to have a high number of winning, tight, players. Because of this, your best option is to find online poker rooms that still have a strong worldwide presence, in addition to operating in the US market. US poker sites that are made up of almost exclusively US players are going to be tough to beat.
The current US market has seen the quality of the players increase exponentially, and with all of the legality talk most new players are taking a wait and see approach before they deposit online. This means that most of the US players at site are going to be at least break-even players. Sure good, winning players can still do well, but nowhere near what was possible just a few years ago.
Rakeback Deals and Loyalty Programs
One of the few ways US poker players can still pull some profit at online poker rooms is by taking advantage of rakeback deals and the cash-back programs that are part of VIP Loyalty Programs. With the competition being far tougher than in the past (most US players are pretty good since to play online you have to jump through a lot of hoops, as opposed to 2005 when anyone could deposit a couple hundred in a matter of minutes). This is why it’s important for US poker players to find the best possible rakeback/Loyalty Program they can.
Fast and Convenient Deposit and Withdrawal Options
Nowhere else in the world is the speed and ease of the site’s cashier more important than in the US market. Soft games and massive deposit bonuses aren’t going to do you any good if you can’t get money on the site, or if it will take 4-months to get your withdrawal processed –sometimes with heavy fees associated with it. The best US poker rooms offer a number of convenient options to fund your account and have withdrawal times that are measured in weeks not months.
