Benefits Of Online Poker vs. Live Poker



Benefits Of Online Poker vs. Live Poker
Reading Time: 3 minutes


A decade ago, if you wanted to take part in a poker game, you needed to visit a ground-based casino. You had to wear the appropriate attire before driving for miles, and often through dense traffic, just to play poker. The casino industry has long transformed. They have adapted to technological strategies, and you can now play online poker.

The majority of casinos are currently utilizing the Internet’s resources to optimize your betting experience. Online poker is fast gaining momentum in the gambling arena. More and more players are now opting to take part in tournaments held in online poker rooms vs. visiting an on-land casino. But why is online poker gaining more popularity over the traditional live game? Let us look at some aspects that have sparked the growing acceptance of poker by online punters.

1. Accessibility and Convenience
Most ground-based casinos are often located in areas far away from where you reside. And even when one gets there, they may be troublesome to trace. However, all that evolved with the advent of the Internet. All you need is a steady connection and a laptop to register for a poker game of your choice.

And now the mobile industry has made it even more convenient. There are hundreds of apps you can install on your smartphone or tablet for increased accessibility. You can play your hands from anywhere and at any time. Moreover, you can enjoy a poker game in the comfort of your home. No need for fancy wear. You can play while in your pajamas.

Furthermore, there are numerous online casinos and apps. If you are a connoisseur of the game, you can even choose to participate in multiple poker rooms at the same time, increasing your chances of winning big.

2. The pace of the game
There is no doubt that taking part in an online poker game is considerably faster and more enjoyable compared to live poker. Some people find live games too slow and tedious to tolerate. Let us consider this example. If you are part of a no-limit hold’em cash live game, usually the maximum number of hands you can be dealt with in an hour is about 30. Whereas someone else playing in an online game may be served with 60 hands per hour, or even more.

The pace is faster when playing online poker because you avoid the time taken by the dealer to shuffle, deal cards, distribute pots, and gather chips. You also find that players who prefer live poker visit their poker rooms to play, have fun, and talk, which slows down the game considerably. And sure enough, a faster game makes for a better experience.

3. Bonuses and promotions
The digital gambling sector is highly competitive. Online poker rooms are increasing daily. Therefore, they have to apply appropriate strategies to stand apart from the competition. To lure in more business and increase their member pool, they will offer lucrative bonuses and promotions to entice players. They may include deposit bonuses, cash-back rewards, discounted membership fees, and even anniversary bonuses.

4. More Payment Options
Land-based poker games tend to have a preference for cash or card-based transactions. You use physical chips for deposits and withdrawals. On the flip side, there are several ways of withdrawing wins. You can use money and credit cards, and the newly fangled cryptocurrency and e-wallets in some sites.

5. Highly secure
Online poker rooms are designed and developed by utilizing rigid technology to ensure it is highly secure. They are built on platforms that run top-edge security features to guarantee that your transactions are safe. Payouts are also easier. Once you place a request, your withdrawal is processed and made available to you.

Last Word
You are sure to experience the same appeal and satisfaction by playing online poker as a live game, if not better. There are numerous reasons why the popularization of the virtual versions of poker is taking over the globe by storm. If a game of texas hold’em or pot limit omaha is your cup of tea, consider an online poker room the next time you want to play.
