Over the last 6 months, no online poker site has improved their payouts as much as Ignition. Coming off the heels of being sold by Bodog and rebranded from Bovada in the last quarter of 2016, Ignition had a lot to live up to in order to regain its footing as the clear #1 option for US players. Since October, Bitcoin payout times have decreased almost 90% from the standard 3-day waiting periods seen on most sites, with some customers seeing payments made in less than an hour.

Over the past number of months, the flagship poker site on the Merge Gaming Network has been riddled with poor management decisions and wildly fluctuating payout waiting times that tend to be outside their stated timeframes. Carbon Poker still asks players to wait up to 5 weeks for check payouts, longest among the sites tracked in this report. As such, cannot recommend this network to its clients or to US players looking for reputable places to play.

We advise players to check out the many fine online poker options detailed above and avoid the Merge Gaming Network.
