There are only a few american express poker sites at this time. Thankfully, there are plenty of alternative poker deposit methods that are more than feasible choices for funding your online poker room account. Sadly, the poker room sites have not yet managed to overcome the coding issues that are in place for online poker activity hence why so many poker sites fail to accept the american express poker deposit. Due to a costly and preposterous law suit, Amex is not willing to budge on this particular brand of entertainment.
While we may be a bit limited with our options for poker sites accepting american express, we have high hopes that this will be changing in the near future. With Barney Frank's tenacious efforts to legalize online gambling for USA players, not only will this open up the door for credit card companies to approve transactions that are tied to online gaming, but it will also open up doors at many poker rooms which currently do not accept USA players. American express poker sites will then be a plentiful commodity which provides a wonderfully convenient online deposit method option for poker enthusiasts around the globe. We are expecting to see some headway made on this legislation sometime around July 2010.....fingers crossed!!!
