ePassporte, the most popular deposit method among U.S. online poker players today, is shutting its doors to the United States gambling population. The news was first announced by a popular poster over at the 2+2 Forums, and although his source was unconfirmed at the time, a statement released by Cake Poker would indeed reveal that ePassporte was closing up shop to the U.S. poker industry.
A spokesperson for the gaming e-wallet giant has not come forward as of yet with any type of press release or statement regarding the U.S. shutdown, however, it should be expected over the next couple of days.
This is tough news for a reeling American poker community that has already seen a rapidly dwindling number of ways to deposit onto online poker player sites.
PokerStars has set the industry standard for how Online Poker rooms should operate. Their relentless efforts to expand and grow the site has paid off huge dividends in the past few years, and with the addition of such superstars as Daniel Negreanu and Joe Hachem to their team of already stacked pros the site will no doubt be a force to be reckoned with for many more years to come.
As many of you already know, PokerStars has had a storied history in the poker world ever since Chris Moneymaker’s historic 2003 WSOP Main Event victory over Las Vegas gambling legend Sammy Farha. The “poker boom” has been on ever since – and PokerStars has fastly risen to become the number one poker site around the globe today. So big that there are actually 100,000+ players on the site at peak times! With full tables, a nice deposit bonus, and an AMAZING player loyalty rewards program, PokerStars caters to every time of player out there – novice or professional.
The signup bonus at PokerStars is significantly smaller compared to other rooms such as Sportsbook.com or Full Tilt, but even at 100% Togel Hongkong bonus rate up to $50, it’s still one of the easiest bonuses to clear on ANY room – and they more than make up for the smaller bonus with a great Rewards program for its players.
All you have to do is earn Frequent Player Points – also known as FPP’s – by playing at the ring tables, tournaments, or sit-and-go’s. New players will need to earn 10 times the bonus amount in FPP points at which time the bonus will convert to real money and be transferred into your player account. Once you’ve opened up your account through the Guru, you’ll be able to get much more information on the PokerStars Bonus requirements by checking in on this page throughout the year.
