USA and European Players Finding Great Deposit Success at Carbon Poker


The aftermath of the US governmentís attack on the top tiers of the internet poker industry has left a lot of Americans unsettled, but few are acknowledging that countless Europeans have also lost their favorite destinations for playing online poker. One leading poker information source is pleased to announce that USA and European players are finding great success depositing at Carbon Poker.

April 15, 2011, a.k.a. Black Friday, left a scar across the entire online poker industry that could take quite some time to heal. The biggest operators in the business are crumbling while those that were formerly content to claim a mediocre portion of the players are now finding themselves soaring to the top of the totem pole. Among them is a fierce competitor, Carbon Poker, threatening to take the top position after only a few weeks of the dust settling.

It started about three weeks ago when the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and US Department of Justice (DoJ) came down heavily upon the most trafficked poker sites accepting US players; PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, UB and Absolute Poker. Their domains names were seized pending an investigation into multiple allegations that included bank fraud and money laundering.

The end result; each poker site was given a choice. Restrict your operations indefinitely from US customers and refund all American player accounts, or suffer the impending consequences of the case in federal court. PokerStars and Full Tilt Poker were both quick to take the deal. UB and Absolute Poker analyzed the situation further and ended up filing for bankruptcy instead. Thus Americans can no longer play online poker at any of these once heavily dominating poker sites.

The debacle also resulted in a multitude of payment processors being shut down, or willingly exiling themselves from the US market in relation to online gambling accounts. It left American players with few options for playing online poker, and even fewer ways to move funds in and out of the poker sites that continued to accept them. Coincidentally, many European poker players were affected as well when their preferred payment methods disappeared from cyberspace.

One leading poker portal has been studying the situation since Black Friday first reared its ugly head, unveiling a single poker site that seems to be offering the perfect solution for both American and European online poker enthusiasts. According to, Carbon Poker invites residents of both regions to continue their favorite pastime, presenting multiple ways to deposit and withdrawal funds from their accounts.

Western Union has quickly risen to the top rung of the ladder in terms of viable US player deposit options. Carbon Poker supports Western Union deposits, a fast and reliable way for Americans to move funds to and from the poker site. The maximum amount that can be deposited at one time is $1,000, and this can be done over the internet by visiting the Western Union website, or at any one of the 386,000+ Western Union agent locations all across the globe. also points out that making a first time deposit of $1,000 with the special promotion code 35CARBON will grant the maximum welcome bonus of $2,000. This limited time promotion awards 200% in bonus money on top of a new memberís initial purchase.

Even players who have an existing account with Carbon Poker, but have never made a deposit at the online poker room, are entitled to the limited time welcome bonus. Using the promo code 35CARBON will also grant new members a 35% Carbon Poker rakeback deal, awarding 35% of all contributed rake, as well as 35% of all tournament fees, paid directly back into their poker accounts on a daily basis. This particular offer expires as of June 1st, 2011, but anyone who takes advantage of the rakeback offer prior to that date will continue to reap the benefits henceforth.

Players from Europe and Canada are encouraged to use one of four eligible payment methods supplied by Carbon Poker. These include Moneybookers, EcoCard, NETeller and Bank Transfers. Residents of these regions are not hampered by legislative barriers that restrict online gambling transactions; therefore exercising these options for deposits and withdrawals is much easier. goes the extra mile to give USA players in particular a complete rundown of Carbon Pokerís features. The web site offers extensive details on promotions and deposit methods for novices looking to play poker for real money, breaking down each payment method and reviewing the capabilities of the most favorable options.
