    Does anyone know what happened to the FortuneJack poker site? The traffic was low but it was still pretty good for tournaments and 7 card stud.

    UPDATE: Fortune Jack Poker has been discontinued.

    We contacted their support team and were told that poker has been removed temporarily from the Fortune Jack sites but it will return.

    To be honest, if you want to play poker for bitcoin then there are better options. Traffic was very low at FortuneJack and their flash based software didn't work on mobile. Here are a couple of options that you might enjoy more...

    BetCoin are a pretty solid option because they use the same poker client as Americas Cardroom and other poker rooms on the Winning Poker Network. They also share a tournament player pool with these major poker sites so you can expect plenty of action. They accept both bitcoin and litecoin and you can register anonymously. Unfortunately, right now they do not support mobile poker on Android and iPhone. >> Read Betcoin Poker Review

    Ignition Casino and Poker only accept real-money players from Australia and the United States. They are the largest US facing poker network as they bough the Bovada pool when it shut-down. Cryptocurrency deposits and withdrawals are free and they have an iOS/Android client that supports Texas Hold'em and Omaha cash games. >> Read Ignition Poker Review

    These are our two recommendations of poker rooms that you can use while you wait for FortuneJack to return to online poker. If neither of those are to your liking, you can find a full list of bitcoin supported poker rooms on our poker page http://www.bitcoingambling.io/poker.html

    i don't blame them for removing it. it was a ghost town. they should join a major u.s. facing poker network like the winning poker network. it's very difficult to build up enough traffic to be able to compete against major site like betonline and americas cardroom.

    FortuneJack have now reinstated their poker room so you can play Texas Hold'em poker again at the crypto currency casino.

    On further inspection, it seems that FortuneJack have greatly scaled back their online poker software. They now only offer live deal texas hold'em and a few other more casino type games.

    Yes, the new Fortune Jack poker client completely sucks. It's not worth creating an account with them if you want to play poker with crypto.

    Casinos running their own poker rooms was a great idea until major poker sites like Bovada and BetOnline started accepting crypto because they hoovered up all the players.

    Exactly. I used to play at Seals With Clubs until BetOnline and Bovada started accepting bitcoin.
