Casino Games – Poker Online
Let’s start with the Poker online differences of the offline poker game and the pros and cons of the online version. The main main difference is obvious: the players, the opponents can not see each other. Therefore, on the one hand, a player does not have to maintain his “poker image” and on the other hand the player can not “read” the opponent’s hand by focusing on body language. So, in the Poker online room the psychological moment of the game is quite weak, for someone it is good and for somebody it is not so good. In other aspects, Poker online has only advantages and it will take a lot of time to name them all. Here are the main ones.
Any room, like any casino online, operates 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and any player can play throughout the year.
A player does not have to get up and go somewhere. Playing Poker online on the computer is more convenient than at the casino table.
The player can choose from a wide variety of games, including the rarest ones, that can play during a fifteen minute break; Or leave the table at any time. Players can participate in a series of tournaments and cash games, can play at short or face-to-face tables, can play at several Poker online tables at the same time, play many games in one hour with shuffles and simultaneous deals . The time limit for decision making makes the game more dynamic. Players do not have to control and count the pot and their own chips.
Playing Poker online is a good practice for beginners who play micro limits that can not be found in the offline casino.
Before playing the game.
If you are ready to play Poker online, you must install client programs. Basically, the software consists of two parts: the server part: here the cards are generated and information is collected about all the players. Part of the client: here the player sees the cards, the opponents and makes game decisions. Both parts of the software are connected through the Internet and constantly exchange information.
The client programs can be of two types: downloaded (executable programs) and not downloaded (flash or java, played in the browser). Programs not downloaded are less convenient although their number is increasing. To play the non-downloaded version of the poker room, a player should, as a general rule, press a button like “Instant Play”, then a small browser window will open and the software from the poker room will be downloaded there. If it is a java program, the player must have java scripts enabled in its browser, the flash plugin must be installed to see flash. It is likely that players have Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher with an encryption of 128 bytes.
If you prefer the downloaded version (and it is more convenient and functional), look for the section “Download” on the website and download the program (usually from 4 to 8 Mb, although sometimes they appear smaller than less than 1 MB, download the software after the launch and then install the client). When the download completes, start the program and install the client program. As a general rule, the customer will automatically add the poker room icon to their desktop or to the “Programs” folder.
The rules for the registration in the poker rooms, the deposit of money and the withdrawal of the winning money are the same as in the casino online. When you register, complete the application, indicate your full name, address, phone number, email, select login and password, and also your screen name to be used during the poker room game sessions. Almost all Poker online rooms accept cards. There are some electronic wallets such as Moneybookes, Neteller, Firepay, etc. to facilitate the financing options of the players.
