    The number of online poker rooms accepting cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Bcash continues. Gone are the days when you were forced to play at low traffic BTC poker sites like Seals With Clubs. Now pretty much every major U.S. facing poker network accepts bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies. With so much choice on offer, it can be a little overwhelming trying to choose the best cryptocurrency poker sites so I'd like to hear which rooms you guys would recommend. Here are my personal favourites...

    I play at BetOnline more than at any other crypto poker room because their new software is great (better than Bovada's IMO) and they are part of the U.S. friendly Chico poker network so there is always plenty of action at the tables at all levels. New players get a generous welcome bonus and a ticket to a $10,000 new player freeroll. In particular I'm a fan of the cash games at BetOnline because there are always plenty of tables running 24/7. Another huge advantage of playing crypto poker at BetOnline is that they have a proper poker client for both iOS and Android devices. While Bovada Mobile only offers a Texas Hold'em and Omaha cash games, the BetOnline poker app comes with Sit N Go' and MTT's also. Private tables are also available for those who like to play against invited guests. Overall, I think BetOnline poker is the best cryptocurrency poker room right now.

    i used to play a lot at betcoin poker until they closed down and screwed their players. now i mostly play nitrogen sports poker because they offer bitcoin only cash games, multi table tournaments and sit n gos. traffic is pretty low but they run some pretty generous freerolls. their software runs on mac, pc, ios or android also. here a tutorial i found that gives a pretty decent overview of the nitrogen poker software.

    personally i'm a fan of bovada poker but it sucks that they don't have a proper poker app yet that supports multi-table tournaments and sit n go's.

    what options are available if you want to play at a cryptocurrency only poker room? I don't want to do the whole KYC thing.

    If you want to play anonymous cryptocurrency only poker then we would recommend Nitrogen. Sadly most of the other bitcoin poker rooms have shut-down because they simply didn't have enough traffic to compete with the major online poker rooms that accept crypto in addition to credit cards. Because of the popularity of the Nitrogen sportsbooks, they usually have a decent amount of traffic around the clock. They also accept real money players from the United States.

    Yes, but BetOnline don't have their own poker network. They are on the Chico Poker Network which pulled out of Australia so they had no other choice but to also do the same.

    Australia was probably a relatively small market for them so it wasn't worth the legal headaches to keep doing business there. The United States poker market on the other hand is huge so the legal risks are worth it.

    Nitrogen Sports have just added a Quick Seating feature that allows players at cash tables to be able to take a seat in just a could of clicks.

  11. now that bovada have added multi-table tournaments to their iphone/android app, it gets my vote. shame it's just available in the united states though, traffic would be much higher if it was truly global.

    It's also worth noting that Ignition Casino, who use the same poker software and are on the same network, have also updated their iPhone and Android poker app to offer Sit & Go and MTT's. If you are an Australian poker player then this is by far the best poker room available to you right now.

    The new software is a big improvement and you can now play on both Android and iPhone. My biggest issue with Seals With Clubs is the lack of traffic. They simply can't compete with major poker sites like Bovada and BetOnline who have thousands of players online. At Seals you are lucky if there are a hundred players at peak times.
