Offshore USA Online Poker Sites Payout Report

Updated on July 13th, 2017

Normal summer fluctuations in some scores on in this month's report. Ignition hangs on to the top spot by virtue of their long-standing prowess with timely payouts, but dipped after some delays in Bitcoin payouts were reported in June. The Winning Poker Network takes a step up, putting themselves in a virtual tie for the top.

Professional Rakeback will be posting these reports within the first week of every month right here on this page. Check out the archive links at the bottom of this report for previous months.

Ignition Casino Poker Payout Waiting Times

Ignition Poker Payouts | Pai Wang Luo Poker Network REPORT SCORE: 9.4 (-0.1 from last month)
Key Stat: June's uptick in Bitcoin waiting times was the first time their average rose over a day in the past six months.
Key Fact: Ignition is the #1 US-facing online poker site in terms of player traffic (via PokerScout).

It's the summer time, which usually means some fluctuation in the world of online poker. Even so, Ignition's Bitcoin payout waiting averages went up to over a day in June after posting several months well below 24 hours. Still, many still received their payouts within a matter of hours and one would think this is just a momentary blip on the radar. With Bitcoin's continual value in constant flux, don't be surprised to see ~24 hour waiting times become more normal as the crypo-currency's worth rides the roller coaster of value.

Overall, Ignition continues to lead a surging pack of great options for US players.

Add that to their recent Rest-Of-World eWallet payouts averaging just a few days - a very telling sign of the network's long-term stability - and it's easy to see why WPN continues it's overall surge toward the top of the US-facing online poker landscape.

Look for WPN's score on this report to continue to increase if June's upward progress continues through the summer.

Carbon Poker Merge Gaming Network Payout Waiting Times

Carbon Poker Payouts | Merge Gaming Network REPORT SCORE: 4.5 (even from last month)
Key Stat: Player traffic continues to decline to just 160 players on average per week (via PokerScout).
Key Fact: Carbon Poker offers very little in terms of incentives for playing on their poker site.

As more reports of players being banned and delays with Bitcoin and check payout methods surface, the picture only clears up further when it comes to Carbon Poker and the Merge Gaming Network. The slight drop in Bitcoin waiting times from player reported data in June is misleading. Bitcoin waiting times more than doubled in May, while checks are currently taking over seven weeks to reach their players. With many emerging options available for US players, it's just a good idea to avoid this online poker site.

We advise players to check out the many fine online poker options detailed above and avoid the Merge Gaming Network. Seriously, play anywhere but here.
