As you may have noticed poker has become immensely popular over the last few years. This has gotten a lot more people interested in playing the game. Unfortunately not everybody has easy access to a place to play. This is why online poker has become so popular. We have actually now reached the point where a lot of people prefer to play online over live games. I am one of those people, for a variety of reasons I would rather play poker online.
The biggest reason that I prefer online poker over live poker is the convenience. Like most US poker players a trip to the casino can take quite awhile since it is located a fair distance outside of the city. While it is fun to make the trip from time to time to play live it just isn’t something that I can do all that often. Playing online allows me to play whenever I want. This is especially useful when I am short on time. I can log on and play for half an hour if I want to; playing live it would take me longer than that just to get to the casino.
Online poker also offers the significant advantage of always having a game going, there is never a slow night. Conversely even if it is busy I can always get into a game. Whenever I go to play live one of two things seems to happen, either there is nobody there or there are so many people that I have to wait for a seat to open up. Since online games don’t have space limitations they can always add another table if there are people waiting to play.
One of the things that I have really come to like about online poker is that almost all of the casinos offer a bonus when you sign up. This is almost always money that they deposit into your account. When I decide to play at a new casino I go online and find some poker bonus codes to make sure that I get the maximum bonus possible. This gives me extra money to play with, which of course means that I have the opportunity to win more money than would otherwise be possible.
There are actually a couple of ways that online poker can be more profitable than playing live. Besides bonus codes the other huge advantage is that when you play online you can play at more than one table at a time. Obviously the more tables you play at the more you have a chance to win. Of course you can also lose more money that way as well. Playing multi-table games is clearly not for beginners. However if you are an experienced player it is a great way to speed up the action and allow you to win more money than you could playing just one game at a time.
