Carbon Poker was one of the first traditional online poker rooms to process deposits and withdrawals with bitcoin. Many expected this to herald a new golden era for online gambling in the US following the drama of Black Friday and UIGEA. Sadly that doesn't appear to be the case as Carbon Poker and other poker sites on the Merge Gaming Network like PlayersOnly, SuperBook and SportsBetting.ag have all stopped accepting new real money players from the United States. Nobody knows if this change will be permanent but things certainly look ominous for the once mega popular U.S. facing poker room. Thankfully U.S. poker players are still well catered for at any of these bitcoin poker sites.
