US poker players are happy again now that PokerHost has moved to the US friendly Cake Poker network. Not only can members of the "old" Microgaming hosted PokerHost play again, now 49 US states can set up an account at PokerHost for the first time since the UIGEA was passed in October 2006!
If you had an account on the Microgaming PokerHost, all you need to do is download the new poker site and log in with your "old" login name and password. All your funds and points traveled to the new site in the move. You can pick up right were you left off.
If you never played at PokerHost before, you are missing out on some great online poker! PokerHost is celebrating the move to the new network by offering a 150% "Re-Launch" poker deposit bonus giving your deposit a boost up to a staggering $2,000 in free cash! (minimum $20 deposit, this offer ends on March 31, 2009). Once you have your account set up, head to the cash tables and earn one Frequent Player Point (FPP) for every dollar in rake, if you are a tournament poker player you are rewarded 7 FPP’s for every dollar in tournament fees. Additionally, as you earn FPP’s they will convert into Gold Chips, these can be used to buy in to special tournaments and prizes.
As always, PokerHost continues to host a wide selection of guaranteed prize pool poker tournaments in a wide range of buy ins and both network and PokerHost only freerolls. Over $5 million in cash is awarded every month! Last but certainly not least, PokerHost brought the casino along with them in the move, so if you fancied some time at the slots or blackjack, you can still spin the reels at the online casino. The casino is just a click away from the poker client.
