Poker Online is a great way to play the game on your computer or mobile device. Signing up for an account is easy and usually requires only a valid email address, ID and password. You will also be asked to agree to the site’s terms and conditions and age check (you must be at least 18 or 21 years old depending on your jurisdiction).
While basic poker rules are the same whether playing in person or online, online gaming does require a slightly different set of skills as players aren’t physically present to read physical tells. As such, it is important to learn the basics and hone your strategy before depositing any money. Thankfully, the internet is awash with poker coaching and training sites that can help you do just that.
Another essential tool is a hand history tracker that lets you view your own performance and analyze the play of your opponents. A good HUD like PokerTracker 4 or Hold’em Manager 3 overlays your table with real-time information, letting you know things like the percentage of opponents that pre-flop raise or how often they fold to a raise, helping you make more informed decisions.
While the software at this online poker room isn’t terribly innovative, it is well-designed and functional. The table software is quick, intuitive to use and doesn’t rely on flashy graphics that can obscure the action. Banking is decent, with the site accepting Bitcoin, e-wallets and credit cards, with payouts typically arriving within an hour.
