Welcome to FlushDraw – Poker News

Since its inception, FlushDraw.net has been one of the most widely-read online poker resources in the world. The site features some of the foremost experts in online gambling today and many of our investigative reports and stories have been featured by other popular media outlets and gaming forums.

Thanks to the countless hours put in by our staff, FlushDraw has set the standard in not just poker journalism, but in the iGaming industry as as whole. Once only thought to be a site focused on poker news, we have overhauled the website to feature other gambling content, with added sections dedicated to things like reviews, deposit methods, country-specific gaming and even a complete legal section that includes poker laws in ALL 50 states.

The team here has always had a no-BS approach to everything we do, and we aim to deliver the very best with the detailed content that has been published on the site. The team has spent countless hours researching only the top real money gambling websites in the industry, including adding our two cents on not just the “pros” of each site, but the “cons” of each, too.

Trust

The FlushDraw name has become synonymous with trust. Our admins, editors and authors have earned a strong reputation in the iGaming sector, with all of us collectively having well over 3 decades experience alone in the field. Some of us were former professional poker players, while others have made a name for themselves in investigative journalism.

Regardless of the background, our names and reputations mean everything to us so we make every attempt to be fair and concise when it comes to the reporting of the news, as well as ensuring that content such as reviews, strategy guides, legal articles and more follow the same standards. In the end, we are hoping to broaden the scope and reach of our site to not just shine a spotlight on the news, but also other gaming niches like online casinos, sportsbooks, daily fantasy and even bingo.

Gambling Reviews

Each of the reviews published on this website contains the most up-to-date information on the gambling sites we analyze. Things like bonus or promotions changes will be reflected immediately, along with any changes in payout time frames, etc. Even if the reviews themselves don’t entice you to open an account then we hope we have at least aided in helping you make a more educated decision before you make a final choice on a poker room, casino or online sportsbook.

Online Poker

The bread and butter of FlushDraw always has and will most likely always be poker. It has also helped us become one of the leading authorities in poker news. However, the site is now expanding its horizons to offer our readers top-tier reviews of the best online poker rooms, as well as payment processor reviews, mobile poker options and legal analysis for all 50 states and other countries around the globe.

This section will of course provide information on legal USA poker in states like Nevada, New Jersey and Delaware, who have since regulated internet poker for its residents in the past several years. It will also contain reviews for all the regulated poker sites each state currently has, including WSOP.com, 888Poker and Party/Borgata. As the push for legal online poker in the USA continues on, FlushDraw will be there to cover it.

Online Casinos

Most online casinos today are flourishing because of the existential need most people have to gamble. With the advent of casinos online there is now no need for players to go to a live casino and play their favorite games anymore. Slots, craps, blackjack and roulette can all be played virtually via your internet browser or even straight from your mobile phone in today’s tech-savvy world.

In time, you’ll notice that on top of our standard poker content, FD will feature unbiased reviews of our most recommended online casinos and other unique strategy guides. Like our poker reviews, you will get detailed analysis on what makes these casinos stand out from one another in terms of deposit bonuses, software playability, graphics, game selection and limits and other pros and cons that will also be listed.

Sports Betting

With the advent of online sportsbooks changed sports betting forever. Not only could wagers be taken with a simple click of a mouse, but you could literally bet on any sport out there. From the major sports leagues (NFL, MLB, NHL and NBA) to even more obscure sports like darts, eGaming and cricket, the business end of sports betting has expanded into a billion-dollar-a-year enterprise.

Depending on your locale, betting sports has never been easier than it is today. Mobile technology allows you to quickly load your favorite online sportsbook and place a bet straight from your smartphone or tablet. Lines are available 24/7 and you can even place “live bets” on games while a match is in progress. We look to delve into this head on and provide you with some of the best sportsbook reviews online and also show you basic betting strategies you can use to your advantage.

Daily Fantasy Sports

This is something that has caught absolute fire in the sports industry. Sites like DraftKings and FanDuel have dominated the market in this niche for years now, with each operating on multi-million dollar a month promotional budgets just to attempt to stay ahead of one another. Other smaller sites are charging up the rear and are looking to get their piece of this billion-dollar industry as well – and that’s even with some states recently outlawing daily fantasy games and others possibly following suit in the future.

For the time being, “DFS” still has a home in dozens of states in the USA and some of the major sites, like DraftKings, will be expanding their reach to the UK and Europe in 2016. The popularity of playing legal daily fantasy games has seemed to finally cool off, especially with more and more talk of federal intervention looms. We hope to provide you with the most updated news and content regarding DFS sites and strategy. Stay tuned!
