Poker Online takes everything we love about the card game and cranks it up to 11. Players can play cash games for stakes as low as pennies or take on some of the highest buy-in tournaments in the world. They can do it on desktop computers, laptops, phones and tablets.
The sign up process is usually straightforward. You create a user account, verify your identity and deposit funds. The amount you can deposit varies from site to site but most will be at least the minimum legal deposit limit in your jurisdiction. Some sites will also require additional verification to protect against fraud such as requiring a copy of your driver’s license or utility bill.
Once logged in the lobby is generally categorized by cash games, tournaments and Sit & Go’s and will contain an “Instant Play” tab if you want to play for free. Some sites will filter their tournaments by player skill level to place you at a table with players of a similar level which helps level the playing field if you are new to the game.
Some online poker sites will also use digital device fingerprinting to identify players and prevent them from creating multiple accounts that could be used to circumvent account bans, restrictions or closures.
