Online poker also provide more variety
such as Texas Holdem poker, Seven Card Stud poker, Omaha
Poker and the Hi/Lo version, Five Card Stud and Five Card
Draw. Like the usual live poker games in casinos, online
players can also play with multiple opponents, basically
people who are also playing the game online.
There are more limits
This is especially useful to people who
find it hard to limit their casino spending. Online games
do not offer no limit games of poker. In fact, players can
actually choose the kind of betting limit that they can
afford or the limit that will suit their earnings and their
skill level. Online poker games also set really low limits
compared to live games in casinos probably because the operating
cost is basically lower online.
Speed of the game
Games are much faster online than on actual
casino games. Players can actually play about 195 hands
each hour. Still, 65 hands per hour is the normal average
for online players. In live casino gambling, the average
number of hands that players can play is 30. This is about
twice the number of the online games.
Since there are no dealers in online games,
players need not give tips. This will translate to huge
savings for the players as they often tip the dealer for
every pot won.
Because online games have virtually low
operating costs, operators can afford to give special discounts
and offer special promos. Some sites offer bonuses to players
who sign up on their site. Others give special bonuses when
a player reach a certain amount or number of hands played.
Freedom to change tables
Unlike live casinos, which require players
to stay on a table even when the play is really getting
bad. On online poker games, a player can leave anytime he
Start small and win big
Players online can wager small amounts
of money at the start unlike other live casinos, which set
no limits for some play. What is more because players can
choose their limits, they can control their spending and
therefore control the amounts of money that they wager.
For the inexperienced
Because online poker is largely available
to everyone, players that are inexperienced are plenty.
This will be a great advantage for players who are already
familiar with the game as poker is largely a game of skill
and not of chance.
