    When Bovada decided to distance themselves from the world of online poker in 2016, a brand new site was born that offered a place where Bovada player would play using exactly the same poker software and with all the same promotions and offers. Like Bovada, Ignition are bitcoin friendly and they do not charge their players anything when they opt to deposit or withdraw in BTC. Ignition Poker has proved just as popular as Bovada Poker and according to Poker Scout the new PaiWangLuo Poker Network is the most popular real money poker network for United States players. Following on from that success, Ignition is now launching in a second country, Australia.

    This should come as little surprise to those following the recent raft of anti-gambling legislation introduced in Australia. The new government has sought to ban online poker in Australia and a number of major rooms like PokerStars, 888 and PartyPoker are in the process of leaving the market. Because Ignition Casino and Poker accept cryptocurrency, the Australian government are powerless to stop their citizens from playing at this online poker rooms.

    I'm pretty sure both of those sites are global so they've always accepted real money poker players from Australia. For some unknown reason, Ignition and Bovada before it were always U.S. only.

    Both PartyPoker and PokerStars have now confirmed that they will exit Australia in mid september so we should expect a lot more Aussie poker players at bitcoin poker tables in a few weeks.

    Bovada Poker, the sister site to Ignition Casino, has relaunched on the same poker network and welcomes players from the United States, Colombia, Brazil, Mexico and many other Latin American countries.

    So Ignition Poker is available in the USA and Australia, while Bovada is available in the USA and Latin America. I guess they came to an agreement to split the globe.

    i presume ignition require you to go through kyc and provide identification. what anonymous poker rooms are available to australian's?

    If you want to play anonymous poker in Australia then your options are severely limited. Seals With Clubs is still operational but their traffic is low so I would recommend Nitrogen Sports. While they don't have enough traffic to compete with the major sites, they have enough sportsbook customers who like poker to make it possible to find action most times of the day and night https://www.bitcoingambling.io/nitrogen-poker.html

    Ignition is a relatively new poker room so I could forgive them for having crappy poker apps but they're on the same poker network and use the same software as bodog and bovada who are online poker giants in canada and the usa. they really should have developed mobile poker software a little sooner.

    Does Ignition support deposits and withdrawals in Litecoin, Monero, Ethereum or any other cryptocurrencies besides bitcoin?

    I'm pretty sure Bodog, Bovada and Ignition only offer support for Bitcoin and Bitcoin Cash.
