Americas Cardroom Offers Fast, $100 Minimum Check Payouts

At last Saturday’s UFC 210: Cormier vs Johnson 2, I went 5 of 6 at the Americas Cardroom sportsbook.

On Sunday, I requested a payout of my winnings. They offer one free check payout per month, with a low $100 minimum. I’m happy to report that the check arrived Thursday, with no hassles, delays or unnecessary requests for additional information.

In today’s online gambling landscape, Americas Cardroom‘s payout policy really stands out. It is RARE indeed that a site offers free monthly payouts with such a low minimum. It’s one of the reasons that Americas Cardroom is one of the few 5-star sites at the The Online Casino Gambling Directory.


Americas Cardroom has a poker room, casino, and sportsbook. Real-money players from the USA are accepted.

UFC 96: March 7th 2009 @ 10pm EST

UFC96 betting at

BetUS is offering lines on all UFC 96 bouts on March 7, 2009 at 10 PM EST. Several fights on the undercard are interesting, but the fight of the night may be Keith Jardine (-350) vs. Quinton €œRampage€ Jackson (+250). Jackson, with his December 2008 win vs. Silva, could have waited for his shot at the UFC light heavyweight title, has decided to take this match against Jardine to stay in shape. Jardine, the heavy favorite, will be wise to remain wary of Jackson’s attempts to get this fight to the ground where Jackson would have the advantage.

BetUS is a 5-star rated sportsbook at The Online Casino Gambling Directory accepting all US players.

UFC 78 – Saturday, November 17

The future of the Ultimate Fighting Championship‘s light heavyweight division will be on the line Saturday when UFC 78: Validation takes place in New Jersey.

In the main event at Newark’s Prudential Center, American “Sugar” Rashad Evans (15-0-1), who won season two of The Ultimate Fighter in the heavyweight division, battles season three light heavyweight winner Michael “The Count” Bisping (15-0) of England. has Evans as the favorite at -305, while Bisping is +245.

In another light heavyweight bout, two of the most aggressive strikers in the game clash when Houston “The Assassin” Alexander (8-1) faces Thiago Silva (11-0).

Alexander has been the breakout performer of 2007, winning his first two UFC bouts against Keith Jardine and Alessio Sakara by knockout in less than two combined minutes. Chute Boxe’s Silva has been just as impressive in stopping James Irvin and Tomasz Drwal in his debut fights in the Octagon.

Great Weekend for Sports

Here’s what I have my eye on this weekend. head on over to Intertops to check out the lines.

  • Saturday
    • ALCS Game 6: Cleveland Indians at Boston Red Sox. Shilling goes for the Sox, and is looking to rebound from his poor start earlier in the series. He looked awesome against the Angles, but the Indians seems to have him figured out. Can he take the Sox to a deciding Game 7? Or will the Indians take the series and face off against the streaking Colorado Rockies in the World Series?
    • UFC 77 – Hostile Territory: Cincinnati Ohio native Jorge Gurgel takes on Alvin Robinson in a featured bout. Gurgel is looking to revenge an earlier defeat at the hands on Robinson. And then there is the main event, featuring Rich Franklin taking on UFC Middleweight Champion Anderson Silva. Should be a great evening of Ultimate Fighting!
  • Sunday
    • Tampa Bay @ Detroit and Chicago @ Philadelphia look to be two of the more evenly-matched games on the Week 7 NFL schedule. I’m picking both of the home teams in these two games.

UFC 71: Liddell the Heavy Favorite

If you have not watched an Ultimate Fighting Championship match, you NEED to. In my opinion, this is one of the most engaging, exciting, and compelling sports to come along in the last 20 years.

Fight fans are gearing up for what should be an epic bout when Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell battles Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in an Ultimate Fighting Light Heavyweight Championship event Saturday in Las Vegas. Liddell is anywhere from a -200 to a -170 favorite in Saturday’s matchup.

You can wager on the bout at any number of sportsbooks. In addition to, USD Bet is another option that is a good choice for fans from around the globe.

UFC:71 is a rematch of a 2003 fight – Pride: Final Conflict – in Japan, in which Jackson defeated Liddell by TKO. That fight was Liddell’s last loss.
