I received a particularly appealing signup bonus/rakeback offer from an affiliate of Betfair Poker today. Betfair is another Crypto site and, since I tend to play there anyway, I'd definitely take advantage. But then I remembered that Betfair doesn't allow U.S. players. Sigh.
I went to the terms and conditions page of their site, and noticed the following:
# Buy-ins are available in Sterling, Dollars and Euros
# Betfair Poker blocks US customers and therefore you'll be mainly playing against European poker players
Don't be American but play in Dollars!
I thought this was odd until I remembered that most Crypto rooms don't block U.S. players, thus the network has dollar tables and it'd probably be a pain for Betfair to block them.
Oh, well. Happy Flag Day!
