This week we’re talking about Carbon Poker and Black Chip Poker on the Merge Gaming Network. Now we’ve been critical of this network in the past and with good reason. Merge is now the only network of any stature that still accepts US players and, in the current climate, this is borderline insane.
We can’t recommend using a site or network that continues to flout the law (regardless of your or our views on the validity of it) but we also recognise that as a US player you have little choice. So if you’re reading this from the US please take this warning on board.
Let’s get the dirty business out of the way first. Withdrawals to the US are by cheque and take approximately a month to arrive. They do arrive and there are no reports of them bouncing. There is also a representative on the twoplustwo forum who you can approach with any issues.
For those playing from Europe there have been no reported problems and payouts are a good deal quicker. The bottom line is that you shouldn’t keep any amount of money anywhere online if you cannot afford to lose it. If you are good enough or lucky enough to accumulate a decent roll. Right, that’s the legal stuff over, let’s start on the review!
