Winning Poker Network Information and Signup Page

Network Overview

The Winning Poker Network is the second largest (and one of the fastest growing) poker network servicing the US market.  They are also the 10th largest online poker network in the world-wide market.  As always, ProfRB works only with the largest, safest, and fastest paying operators.  On the Winning Poker Network, those skins are: America's Cardroom, Black Chip Poker, True Poker, and YaPoker, all of which are directly owned and operated by the WPN itself.

This network has a surprising amount of No Limit Hold'em traffic given it's size.  There is plenty of PLO action for most players as well as a good selection of Jackpot SNGs up through the $40 buy-in level.  The major Sunday tournament is a 115k guaranteed MTT and is the largest guaranteed tournament offered by any of the US-friendly sites.  They also have a Sunday 35k guaranteed Pot Limit Omaha tournament that is gaining a lot of attention, which is also the largest regular PLO tournament available to US players.

Rakeback, VIP, and Promotions

With promotions like "The Beast" and 27% rakeback paid weekly, it is a fine addition to the repertoire of any online poker player - especially those in the US market!  Withdrawals are very swift and the WPN sports a solid 9.0 out of 10 in our monthly cashout reports. And as an added plus, WPN has recently upgraded their software and added a Mac-friendly poker client.

Bonuses and Bonus Codes

Initial Deposit Bonus, or First Deposit Bonus as it is called here at the Winning Poker Network, is a 100% matching bonus up to $1,000 USD.  There is no bonus code necessary - the bonus is automatically applied upon your first deposit when you follow the sign up instructions below and use PROFRB's signup links.  The poker deposit bonus clears at a rate of $1 per 27.5 award points earned.  Award points are earned at a rate of 5.5 points per dollar in cash game rake or tournament fees.  Thus, the bonus clears at an effective rakeback rate of 20%.  This bonus is not deducted from players on the Elite Benefits VIP program.  Players on the flat rakeback program will see a reduction in bonus value of 27% due to rakeback pay.  For example, a rakeback player maximizing the $1,000 bonus by making a $1,000 initial poker deposit, would get an effective bonus of $730 by the time the bonus was cleared due to the rakeback deduction, but an Elite Benefits player would get the entire $1,000 bonus.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Americas Card Room legal in the US? - Absolutely. There are no Federal laws that make online poker illegal. Furthermore, only one US state has any language that specifically addresses online poker (Washington State). As such, itis perfectly legal to play on America's Cardroom, Black Chip Poker, True Poker, or any other online poker site while residing in the United States.

Is 27% the maximum rakeback deal allowed on Winning Poker Network? - Yes. The WPN caps rakeback at 27% and does not allow any higher rates. Professional Rakeback offers this maximum rakeback amount to all of our players. You may have heard of a 30 or 35% rakeback rate, but those deals are no longer available. They were special deals that were present on other networks. When the WPN acquired those networks years ago, it allowed existing rakeback players to keep their deals. However, those deals are not available to new customers. 27% is the max allowed.

Is their RNG legit and are the deals sufficiently random? - Yes. The WPN random number generator is independently tested by iTech Labs. They concluded that the card sequences produced through our Random Number Generator are unpredictable and non-repeatable. Basically that means the card distribution is correct, honest, and fair. If you want to see for yourself, you can review the actual certificate here.

The Winning Poker Network is unable to accept US gamblers from the states of Delaware, Louisiana, Kentucky, Maryland, Nevada, New Jersey, or Washington State. However, players from Guam, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands are accepted. If you reside in a state that is not allowed by the WPN, please know that there are other US poker sites that accept poker players from these states and offer real money games.

WPN also cannot accept players from the countries of France, Spain, Turkey, Guadeloupe, French Guyana, Mayotte, Réunion and Martinique.
