Just when the US Poker Industry seemed to be in real trouble, surprising and good news came when Americas CardRoom acquired Doyles Room Poker. Doyles Room Poker had switched poker software several times in recent years and quite frankly was struggling to survive. Even Doyle Brunson terminated his endorsement contract with the poker room. The good news is that instead of another poker room leaving the US market, a stronger one is back and stronger.
Representatives from the online poker room Americas CardRoom (ACR) announced today their acquisition of DoylesRoom. Americas Cardroom, launched in 2001, was one of the original online poker card rooms. The site has recently re-entered the online poker world and is acquiring skins to fast-track itself to be a dominant player in the market.
"We're very excited with the acquisition of DoylesRoom and the resulting expansion of the Americas CardRoom brand," said an Americas CardRoom representative. "DoylesRoom's new software that's proving to be a player favorite coupled with their recent success in serving US players made the company attractive for a takeover."
Current affiliate contracts and existing promotions, including October's $50,000 Rake Race, will be honored and day to day operations will remain the same. With the acquisition, Americas CardRoom acquired the rights to the player and affiliate database, the DoylesRoom software and staff, and player liability.
"Players and affiliates can rest assured that their balances are safe and secure and Americas CardRoom will honor all of the existing DoylesRoom agreements." With more liquidity being injected into the operation of the business, players can expect to see bigger guarantees, better promotions, and greater incentives for being a part of the Americas CardRoom community."
What wont change:
Novembers’s Big Promos—everything remains intact
Great Software—it’s exactly the same as before, except for some new colors and a brand new logo
Your Login Credentials—sign in to the new software just as you would to DoylesRoom
Your Account Assets—Information like hand histories, player notes, FPPs, bonuses, and more will remain intact
Your Account Balance—it will remain 100% intact
The Dedicated Staff—all the day-to-day people behind the scenes will remain on board
Starting November 1st Americas CardRoom will have a $65,000 Rake Race and a brand new online poker series called the “Americas CardRoom Online Super Series” (ACROSS). They are also getting prepared to launch an innovative loyalty program to reward their players.
