Americas Cardroom Launches New Software Update

Last Updated on


As of Wednesday, July 17, 2013 players at Americas Cardroom poker are playing on the site’s new software update, which includes vast lobby enhancements and new, slicker look and feel to the poker tables. As part of the Winning Poker Network, Americas Cardroom has benefited from the same poker software update that all sites on the network have simultaneously undergone.


Among the notable improvements in the new Americas Cardroom software are:

  •     brand new MTT and SNG tournament lobby, with table stakes redesigned to facilitate easier navigation
  •     the addition of more Ring Game filters
  •     tables radically redesigned, including —
  •     new table notifications
  •     new table animations
  •     faster and smoother game play and dealing of cards
  •     ability to sit out from 1 or more tables
  •     casino, sports, and promotions tabs reorganized

The new Americas Cardroom software also reportedly fixes the last few remaining bugs from the previous version.

For U.S. players, one of the great advantages to Americas Cardroom’s new software is that it improves upon an already industry-leading payout processing system that avoids the kind of long delays typical for U.S. players in other online poker rooms.

And still part of the America’s Cardroom community of games and promotions is The Beast – the world’s first progressive rake race, and satellites for the Latin Series of Poker (LSOP) and the Punta Cana Poker Classic. There are also a bevy of ongoing multi-table tournaments with guarantee prize pools of the schedule.

The last update of the Americas Cardroom software was 7 months prior.

Zynga Poker Launches Online Real Money Poker Site In UK

Last Updated on


Zynga, the social gaming platform that debut to snowballing success on Facebook, has launched its long-awaited real money online poker client for players in the UK. With the official launch taking place Wednesday, April 3, 2013, Zynga Poker Plus, as the site has been named, offers both an instant, online, browser-compatible, no download version and a downloadable software skin for their acclaimed poker room.

Last October, 2012, Zynga, Inc. partnered with Bwin.Party Digital Entertainment. Now, by launching its new real money online poker site, Zynga Poker Plus, on the Party Gaming Network, Zynga (and its players) will share in the player pools of Party Poker, WPT Poker and bwin, among others, with access to the same player rewards available to players on those other sites.

For anyone familiar with playing at Zynga Poker on Facebook, the look and feel of Zynga Poker Plus will be familiar, down to the sultry red haired, red dressed “spokesmodel” avatar greeting players to the site — the major noticeable difference being — of course — that now they’ll be playing for real money instead of play money.

While the Zynga Poker Plus real money platform is currently only available to players in the UK, Zynga has already submitted its application for Nevada gambling license, where intrastate online real money poker has recently been legalized.

Zynga Poker was Zynga’s second highest grossing game on Facebook, second only to Farmville, generating nearly $217.5 or almost 20% of Zynga’s revenue from online gaming.
