    Until recently, Bovada was the largest bitcoin friendly U.S. poker network. They have now made the surprise decision to cease offering online poker from their main website. The reason for this remains unclear but we can presume that offering poker simply wasn't worth the legal headache. Bovada will continue to operate as a bitcoin friendly casino and sportsbook.

    The good news is that their player pool and software has been acquired by another gambling operator called Ignition Casino. To be honest, the website is so similar that it looks like Ignition is being run by the same people.
    • Ignition Poker is basically a clone of Bovada Poker that just uses a slightly different skin.
    • Deposits and withdrawals can be made with bitcoin for free, along with other fiat banking methods.
    • BTC deposits are usually processed within 30 mins.
    • BTC withdrawals can take 1 to 5 days.
    • Ignition Casino is licensed and regulated by the Canadian Kahnawake Gaming Commission.
    • Also available on mobile. Play Hold'em and Omaha on your smartphone or tablet.

    It's a bit annoying that poker and sports betting are now separated. I liked Bovada because you could do everything from the one account.
  3. can you create an anonymous bitcoin poker account at ignition casino?

    No. There isn't a separate sign-up process for bitcoin players. You still need to fill in the form if you want to create an account purely for bitcoin poker.

    To entice more of their players to use the digital currency, Ignition Casino offer an instant 25% deposit bonus on casino games when you use BTC.

    The Ignition Casino Poker site adopts the same policy as Bovada when it comes to online gambling. Only citizens of the United States of America can join.

    Solid poker room for US players. I just wish they'd add tournaments to their poker app.

    Traffic at Ignition continues to rise. It is now the 5th most popular poker network according to Poker Scout with average cash players exceeding 1,000. Not bad for a poker room that only accepts U.S. players. Major poker rooms like 888 and PokerStars occupy the top positions.

    i wish they'd update their poker app to include tournaments. it hasn't gotten a decent upgrade in a couple of years. does anyone know if ignition are going to add sit & go's and scheduled tournaments to their iphone app anytime soon?

    I suspect that they will update it soon, since BetOnline have already released a poker app that offers a wide range of MTT's and SNG's. They are fiercely competitive so they will not let BetOnline get an advantage.

    Fans of online poker in Australia have been having a bad time lately as new legislation is forcing many poker rooms to leave Australia. Bitcoin friendly poker room Ignition Casino have begun accepting real money playing from Australia. This means we should see the Ignition player pool grow even bigger over the next year.

    does the ignition casino accept any cryptocurrencies other than bitcoin? what about dash, ether or monero?

    Last time I played there, you could only deposit with bitcoin and bitcoin cash. Americas Cardroom support about 50 cryptocurrencies so I'm sure they'll add more soon just to stay competitive.
