Online casinos and poker rooms are getting more popular than ever. This is maybe a consequence of the technological development but is online poker better than real life poker and why? This article will give some reasons why online poker is better than real life poker.
You can always find a game
Have you ever experienced a moment where you wants to do something but you can't because you don't know where you can do it? This will never happen in poker because there is so many places online where you can get your hunger. Try to imagine 20 years back. What do you think you would do if you really really wanted to play poker and you didn't know where to play and your wife didn't allow you to go to the casino? Today you can't avoid finding a solution to this issue. On the internet you can find a poker room at any time and there is always an empty seat no matter whether it is cash game or a tournament.
If you like to play Texas Hold'em but they only play Omaha at the local casino you can just open your laptop in your own living room and head for a poker room and play Texas Hold'em and you can choose the buy-in or limits by yourself instead of letting the casino choose it for you. For those new to poker there is the opportunity to practice at very small stakes, typically $ 0.01 and $ 0.02 in blinds, or if you have concerns about risking your money in poker you can choose to play with playmoney. Real casinos often have some kind of dress code and online casinos and poker rooms doesn't of course so actually you have a chance to win thousands of money while you are dressed in your underwear.
Claim your bonus
When you play poker in real casinos you can't use some kind of bonus code to double up your deposit but if you play online you can. Eg at PokerStars you can use a PokerStars bonus code and then you will have more money to play with and you can refer your friends to play at the poker room and make some money on their deposits and winnings. That I have never seen in any real casinos.
"My bus will arrive in less than 40 minutes and I am bored, what to do?"
Well, you could read a book or what about playing poker? Online poker gives you the opportunity to play poker at home when you don't have time to go to the casino. You just take a seat in your poker room and leave 35 minutes after. If you do so I would prefer cash games or else you will lose your money because tournaments won't be that short and you won't catch your bus because your are the chip leader in the tournament. Online poker is generally faster than real life poker. Generally you have one minute to act in online poker and it's hard to play psychologically and you can't read your opponents thoughts by studying their moves. That makes online poker faster than poker in real life and because it's faster you can build up a bankroll faster than in real life.
