Online poker room, BetOnline, has temporarily shutdown. Fortunately, it should be re-opening again very soon, hopefully within 3 days at the latest/April 20th. Apparently BetOnline is upgrading their poker site which should provide for a better overall experience for their players.

alternativeOn the downside, not many people seemed to know they were closing down for a few days while they were updating their online poker room. Also, BetOnline’s poker players are having their funds transferred to their sportsbook account during this process. But don’t be worried if you have money tied into the poker room, although it may get transferred you will still have access to it.

If any new significant information comes up during this process, we will be sure to put up updates. In the meantime, if you are looking to play at reputable online poker rooms during the temporary closing of BetOnline, we recommend the following:

Bodog.com has been seized by the U.S. Government, and many players are looking for an alternative online gambling site, especially those in the state of Washington, New York, Utah and Maryland. We highly recommend BetOnline.com as your alternative betting site online, since it accepts all U.S. players and offers poker, casino games, and sportsbook betting.

alternative Fairly recently, Bodog.com switched its domain name to Bovada.lv to continue to accept gamblers within the United States. Bovada is the same as Bodog, so don’t be confused. With all the recent U.S. regulations and issues facing the online gambling world, Bodog.com just changed its name to Bovada.lv so they still could accept wagers from the U.S.

For those looking to gamble online that are within the United States, including people from Washington, New York, Utah and Maryland, we recommend BetOnline.com as a trusted and reputable online gambling site.

For those that are outside of Washington, New York, Utah and Maryland, and are looking to wager online to play casino games, poker, or place sports bets, Bovada.lv will still accept and payout any wagers placed.

An unidentified woman won $1 million at Harrah’s Resort in Atlantic City this week, after playing the Three Card Poker 6 Card bonus jackpot game and qualifying for a promotion being run by the casino resort. What makes this win particularly impressive is the fact that the woman wagered only $20 before grabbing the big prize and becoming the second winner of the promotion.

The win was made through the promotion offered by Harrahs where players are paid out cash prizes if they manage to draw a royal flush. The sum of the prize depends on the make-up of the royal flush, and whether it is in clubs, spades, hearts or diamonds. The payout also depends on how much money is bet on the hand by the poker player.

Harrah’s top payout of $1 million was earmarked for a royal flush in diamonds – the exact hand landed by the woman, despite her very low wager.

Harrah’s Resort would not divulge the identity of the woman when approached, but did confirm that she had only been playing for two hours at the table before she hit the winning jackpot. The casino also said that the woman had notified them that she had only ever played Three Card Poker 6 twice in the past.

Harrahs’ promotion kicked off at the end of September and this marks the second time that the $1 million payout has been won since then. The first jackpot was won in October after another unidentified man wagered just $19. In November, 2011, a man from Virginia bagged $100,000.
