The Winning Poker Network is known for being the first to offer 3D poker software. That was a big deal in 2001. Not so much now, though. Now, the software used by the Winning Poker Network is deemed as outdated. It's still worth checking out if you'd prefer to play on 3D software versus the 2D software that other sites use.

History Behind the Winning Poker Network

The Winning Poker Network was originally established as the Yatahay Network in March 2001. They've been around for almost as long as (real money) online poker (1998).

The Yatahay Network was a relatively unknown network. That is, until they added Doyles Room to their network in January of 2011.

Unfortunately, the celebrations didn't last long, as the Yatahay Network found themselves a victim to the Blue Monday domain name seizures which took place in May 2011. Immediately following the seizure Doyle Brunson, 10-time WSOP bracelet winner and the face of Doyles Room, decided to leave the site. Americas Cardroom, Winning Poker Network's flagship site, acquired the room in October 2011.

Less than a year later, the Yatahay Network decided to rebrand themselves as the Winning Poker Network. They're one of the few networks to still accept American players. As a result, they've grown about 85% over the last year, picking up some of the slack left by the poker sites that left the US market post-Black Friday.

Winning Poker Network Brands

The Winning Poker Network consists of the following brands. About 1/3 of them focus primarily on poker, while the remaining 2/3 focuses on sports betting and offer poker and online casino games on the side.

  • Americas Cardroom - ACR is the flagship site for the WPN. They joined the WPN in August of 2011. Immediately following that they bought Doyles Room (October 2011) and absorbed the traffic and software. Americas Cardroom has been online for 11 years.
  • True Poker - True Poker launched in 2001 and is one of the few sites that doesn't use the 3D software that the Winning Poker Network is known for.
  • BetCris Poker - BetCris is the child site of Bookmaker. They launched their poker client in 2008, just shortly after separating themselves from Bookmaker. BetCris has been in business since 1985 focusing primarily on the sports betting market.
  • BetDSI - BetDSI has been online since 1998. They are licensed in Costa Rica and focus primarily on sports betting.
  • Fab Poker - Fab Poker is still on the Winning Poker Network page as a partner, however, support hasn't returned any of my emails. It's possible they're out of business.
  • Bookmaker - Bookmaker operated at until 2007. Their primary focus is on betting.
  • 5 Dimes - Online since 1998. 5 Dimes also offers sports betting and casino games. Their sister site, SportBet Poker, is also apart of the WPN.

Each brand offers their own bonuses and promotions. So it'll be worthwhile to research each room to find the best deals.

The Winning Poker Network does accept US players. However, keep in mind that states such as Kentucky, Maryland and Washington State cannot play on the network. The laws for these states are just too strict. If you live in any of the restricted stats, we suggest you try BetOnline or Bovada Poker.
