Winning Poker Network Payout Waiting Times

SCORE: 9.4 (EVEN from last month)
Key Stat: WPN steadies Bitcoin payouts to its lowest point in over six months.
Key Fact: Trails only Ignition in US-facing player traffic and is 6th worldwide (via PokerScout).

The Winning Poker Network, with its leading poker sites America’s Cardroom, Black Chip Poker, True Poker, and Ya! Poker, have just barely squeeked into the top spot in this payout report after another excellent month of payouts. For the second time in as many months, Bitcoin payouts averaged less than 36 hours from request to receiving. Add that to their recent Rest-Of-World eWallet payouts averaging just a few days - a very telling sign of the network's long-term stability - and it's easy to see why WPN continues it's overall surge toward the top of the US-facing online poker landscape.

Look for WPN's score on this report to continue to increase if July's upward progress continues through the summer months.

Key Fact: Ignition is the #1 US-facing online poker site in terms of player traffic (via PokerScout).

It's the summer time, which usually means some fluctuation in the world of online poker. Ignition has rode a small roller coaster fluctuating between 36 hours and less than 18 hours in Bitcoin payouts over the last few months. You may be thinking - they still averaged less than a day in July...that's awesome! And you would be right! Ignition has historically been among the very best in paying their players quickly. The slight edge to WPN here is due to the amount of player reported data in July. The summer month slow down resulted in less than usual data for Ignition, giving WPN a slight edge. But make no mistake: Ignition is still the best overall US-facing online poker room and if you aren't playing there now, you should be!

Overall, Ignition continues to be a leader in a surging pack of great options for US players.
