Online poker has been through quite a lot in the past two decades. The first hand ever was dealt in 1998, and now in 2015 we are faced with legal issues, sites shutting down, and segregation nightmares. Poker is a game that extends beyond normal language and culture. Someone who speaks only English can sit down at a table in Spain, Asia, or anywhere in the world and be right at home.
It’s a shame that online poker isn’t currently worldwide game. Some sites choose to interpret laws differently and take more risks by offering real money play for those in the United States.

Most of these brands accept wagers from nearly every country, except the United States. They are sorted by the Ace Formula, which is our default ranking method.
