YouWin Merge Poker Lobby Have you had a desire to play on the Merge Gaming Network against all of the juicy American sportsbook fish but don't like the idea of having your money commingled with funds from that of USA players?  Well, if you were on the fence, then this might be exactly what you were looking for.  The YouWin group is the only remaining Merge Poker operator in existence who does not provide their services to American poker players.  Americans hoping to play online poker at US poker sites, should go here instead.  As such, your money will only be mixed with that of other players from around the globe.  This segregation of funds from that of U.S. poker players could be safer for the health and longevity of your bankroll.  The YouWin group is fully licensed and regulated by the gaming commission in the country of Malta, while Merge Gaming is licensed and regulated in Curacao.

Youwin Poker offers a soft 125k guaranteed Sunday Major Online Poker Tournament Merge Network uses United States Dollars only on the poker tables, however, the YouWin group will take your deposits in Euros and British Pounds [GBP] in addition to USD.  Unfortunately, as of September 2014 there is no poker deposit bonus available on YouWin, only casino and sports book bonuses.  However, YouWin does offer all of the Merge Poker options of other skins, namely the ability to play up to ten simultaneous tables*, the best poker software client of all poker sites other than PokerStars, full compatibility with Poker Tracker and Holdem Manager as well as access to all Merge Poker cash tables, sit and goes, and multi-table tournaments.  YouWin also participates in all Poker Maximums / Carbon Online Poker Series tournaments.  YouWin is also Mac-friendly, having its own native Mac poker client.  Unfortunately Youwin does not offer heads up poker, but does offer all other cash games, SNGs, and MTTs available on Merge Poker Network. *Contact PROFRB for information on how to play more than the default four table limit.


YouWin vs Carbon Poker

The flagship skin of the Merge Gaming Network is Carbon Poker, who is by far the largest operator on the network.  However, there are a couple differences between Carbon and YouWin, and these differences are why Professional Rakeback offers two different options for our  clients. Let us take a look at YouWin's advantages and disadvantages:

  • ADVANTAGE: they do not accept players form the USA and thus there is some insulation from possible liabilities of operators opening their doors to USA players
  • ADVANTAGE: There are no withdrawal fees on Skrill withdrawals, where as Carbon charges a 5% withdrawal fee
  • DISADVANTAGE: There is currently no poker deposit bonus at YouWin poker, where as Carbon offers up to a $5,000 deposit bonus (although it is only worth ~7% effective rakeback)
