Unless your living under a rock, you have heard about "Black Friday".  If you haven't heard about it's when the (DOJ) Department of Justice and the FBI of the United States, seized the domain names of the top 4 online poker sites that accepted USA online poker players. We are now going to answer a few questions about what happened and what is going to happen due to this.

Which Domains Got Seized ? 

5 Domains in total got seized they were : Pokerstars.com, UB.com, Ultimatebet.com, Absolutepoker.com and FulltiltPoker.com.  

Whats Going to happen if i had money in one of those sites ? 

If your from the USA you currently cannot conduct any financial transactions on any of the listed sites. We have has a few members tell us th at they were able to log in and request a withdrawal, but most people we spoke to cannot even connect to the servers. Pokerstars and Fulltilt Poker released a statement saying that all funds are safe, and withdrawals will be processed very soon, there just getting new processors in place. AbsolutePoker and UB poker still have not responded to requests as to whats going to happen with customers money.

Im not from the US why cant i access these sites ?

The DOJ and FBI has seized the domain names, but not the servers on where the games are hosted. The poker sites had to change there domain names to non .com's. ICANN controls .coms and they are a US based company, there by giving the DOJ easy access to seize them. So to connect to the poker sites here ar e the new domains. For Pokerstars it is now Pokerstars.eu  For Fulltilt poker it is now FulltiltPoker.co.uk  for UB it is now UBpoker.eu still no word on absolute pokers domain name. 

So im in the US where can i play now ? 

Yes, there are still a few quality sites that allow online poker players from the USA. They have there own banking an processing so they were not affected by the Black Friday seizures.  We have put up a list of the safest online poker rooms for you to play at if your from the USA here so be sure to check it out, and click a few of our links.
