Online Poker Sites Shut Down

April 16, 2011

Sadly, early yesterday afternoon, USA online poker players were shocked when they were no longer welcome to play real money poker at four of the biggest online poker sites on the Internet. Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker, PokerStars, and have all shut down to USA poker players indefinitely. You can no longer play at these sites if you reside in the US.

While this is all very unfortunate, it is not the end of the story. There are many other online poker rooms that are still perfectly safe for USA players to play at. Visit USPokerSites to find sites that accept USA players.

Seventy-five different banks have been charged along with the 11 executives from the online poker rooms with money laundering, fraud, and illegal gambling, so it is unlikely that PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, or Absolute Poker will be back up and running for USA players anytime soon. Therefore, it is necessary for USA players of these sites to find new online poker rooms where they can play for real money. Visit to find out where you can still deposit and play online poker for real money. There you will be able to find out which sites still accept USA players.

Unfortunately, most of the defendants in the case have in fact already been arrested, and those who are still at large are being sought after by federal agents. This is a very sad day for these men and their families, but USA poker will go on despite the feds going after them for violating the UIGEA.
