What Are Online Casinos?

An online casino is essentially an online gambling platform. Compared to in-person casino gambling, online casinos don’t have dealers, but casino gaming software to manage them.

Video Poker

Poker is a well-known game that combines luck and skill. This game is characterized by players betting against each other based on their poker hand’s value. The plastic or ceramic chips called chips represent the player’s bets.
