WINNING POKER NETWORK offers the best value for online grinders

Winning Poker Network and their flagship skins Americas Cardroom and Black Chip Poker might be the best pick for valuehunters right now. They have shops in all South America and are the largest and maybe only really trusted online poker room that offers cross-state poker in the United States.

One off the largest sportsbooks in the world, Betcris.com are the guys behind the network, and that is one off the most trusted brands on the American continent. You will see their brand every day in South America when you watch a sports event on FOX Sports or ESPN.

It is busy days for the network right now as they are going to host a 1.000.000 USD guarantee tournament on sunday the 22 Feb. This might be the very best tournament off the year when it comes to value, because the player pool on WPN is mostly sportsbookpunters and gamblers from South America. 50% off the Field will be satelitte players so this is truly a great chanse to play in a huge value tournament.


(We dont know if this guy won his seat yet, but if he does, it will just add more value to this fantastic tournament)

Trough our contact network in Costa Rica we where able to get a interview with the head off marketing in WPN, Mr Jason Simon.

Hello Mr Simon, can you tell us a little bit more the background of the network?

Our network has been online since the beginning of online poker in 2001. The Winning Poker Network was rebranded from the Yatahay poker brand two years ago and remains one of the most trusted names in the industry.

Since the rebranding Americas Cardroom has become our flagship skin and our community has grown thanks to our no nonsense deposits quick pay-outs and high tournament guarantees. As our player base from the US has grown, we’ve started to bring on more players from other markets including Europe.



What is your personal background?

I’ve worked in the online gaming industry for over 10 years. I always envisioned a career in poker as I’ve been an avid fan of the game and have always wanted to make it better for online players. Being originally from the US myself, I saw the need to fill the void left in the States for players to play in a trusted and stable environment.

Tell us more about the Winning Poker Network?

It’s exciting to see how far we’ve come. Just a few years ago our biggest guaranteed poker tournament was a $7,500 GTD. As you know this Sunday we’ll be hosting the $1,000,000 guarantee Winning Millions poker tournaments. This is the biggest online poker tournament held by a US network in four years.


(One million reasons to play at Winning Poker Network this sunday. Several pros we have spoken to claims that this is the best value tournament online in 2015)

The one thing we’ve always been consistent with is our pay-outs. We have the fastest pay-outs in the industry and our customers know that their money is safe with us.

We built from that and made a ton of improvements and are now really starting to explode. We’re the only network that hosts weekly progressive rake races and Sit & Go races. We’ve aggressively expanded our tournament schedule where players can now find a variety of daily tournaments to suit their needs. We’re also going to be qualifying 50 of our players to the WSOP Main Event this year which is something no one else has offered in a long time.

Online poker, especially in the US has had its ups and downs over the past 9 years. We knew if we kept paying our players and offering the right incentives that the players would come. Poker is a game that’s part of the American culture, much like baseball. We’re happy to provide a great environment so players can play.

BetCris are huge in Latin America, and BetCris is one off the largest sportsbook in the world. Is it fair to say that you run the network with the best value right now?

I would say that’s an understatement. We have a number of sportsbook partners such as BetCris that drive a huge amount of recreational player traffic to the site.

BetCRIS is one of the pioneer online sportsbooks, we currently operate LIVE SHOPS in Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela, Perú and Dominican Republic where our customers can live the BetCRIS experience. We are the largest operator in Latin America, offering a very specialized product for our customers, making us the #1 option. This is one of our strongest brands and one of the most respected ones also, due to the history behind BetCRIS and the 20+ years that we have been around. To accommodate some of the demand through Latin America we’ve introduced a new network skin called Ya Poker which caters to our Spanish speaking player base.

Besides the huge amount of recreational players we get, our promotional offerings are second to none. At Ya Poker, ACR and BCP you can enter ANY tournament for as little as a Penny (spin to get in not to mention The Beast and Sit & Crush progressive cash rake races, weekly Rakeback, elite benefits, WSOP seats for $55, and reload bonuses.


(Latin Series of Poker. Betcris and WPN are running the largest tournaments in South America and are the number one pick for latin american players. Yeah, that put Pokerstars in second place on the continent)

This weekend WPN runs a 1 million guarantee tournament. This show that you guys really means business. How many runners you think you will get?

We’re definitely going to cover it. We’ve put forth an aggressive satellite schedule where the first 500 players to win their seat via satellite also get a free $215 ticket to the $300k Second Chance tournament the same day. Our player traffic is at an all time high and we know we have the numbers to cover it.

Do you have plans to enter new markets like for example Asia?

As we continue to grow will explore new markets without a doubt. We’re now seeing players from around the world sign up and we feel that we have unlimited potential to successfully develop in different countries around the world.

Can you tell us a little bit more about the LPS and PCPC ?

We are hosting our 6th running of the Punta Cana Poker Classic this year in November and are already looking forward to it! PCPC hosts a full week of tournaments with a Main Event that guarantees a $500,000 prize pool for only $1650 buy-in.

The event takes place at the beautiful beach of Punta Cana, home of the amazing Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Punta Cana, famous for its premium service. This year’s event promises to break our attendance and registrations record which translates into bigger fields and prize pools.

(Doyle Brunson is one off many pros that loves the events that WPN and Betcris host in exotic places. We dont know if Big Papa took this girl to the room, probably not, because at his age he would probably not have survived a thunderstorm like that…)

What is the best site for Nordic players on WPN?

Black Chip Poker or Americas Cardroom would both be great options.

What is the normal response time on support and how fast are the cash outs?

We have staff on 24 hours a day 7 days a week to answer any questions and offer players support. We have online chat which you can speak immediately to one of our customer service agents or we offer email and telephone support.

Our cash out times are some of the fastest in the industry. Depending on your pay-out method it can take anywhere from one day to two weeks. We have a ton of processing options available to fit the needs of all our customers from around the world.
