Choose The Poker Room That Is Right For You

Copyright (c) 2005-2020 WhichPokerSites.com
Written by:

Probably the biggest question people have before they choose an online poker room is which one is best for them? Many online poker rooms may be busy with enough people, but there are certain things you need to look at before you choose one. Take the time to research the main features you are looking for in a poker room, so that you can ensure you have selected the poker room that is right for you.

A few of the key categories to consider are deposit options, what games the poker rooms offer, tournament structure, game features, extras on the site itself, and the support provided.

Depositing money into a poker room is the only way to play for real money. You want to be reassured that your money is being processed by a reputable source. Some of the more popular deposit options are Neteller and Firepay. EPassporte is starting to get a bit more popular and another option that is starting to emerge is Click2Pay. People like to have several deposit options when choosing a poker room and many of the higher end ones offer plenty of them.

What are the more popular poker games today? Hold Em and Omaha are the two top games as of now. The reason Hold Em and Omaha are so popular is that they are often shown in the media, including TV. Games like 7 Card Stud, 5 Card Stud, and Razz are all extras that aren't played as much, but are fun and have been traditionally played offline among friends. Certain poker rooms do offer these games as well as Blackjack.

Tournament structure is very important when choosing an online poker room. Cash games are really fun, but the real action and bigger winnings is in tournaments. Many people don't only want to see large monthly tournaments, but daily large ones too. If a poker room holds daily large tournaments, you know there is a lot of action, so that's a good sign for you if you're looking to get in a game right away. There is usually a basic free roll that many people like to enter if they want to play for at least something. Most poker rooms have a decent tournament structure but there are certain poker rooms that are dedicated to tournaments.

People that are interested in affiliate marketing of poker rooms can earn a good income, if you choose the right poker rooms. The one challenge with being an affiliate is you need to establish your site enough so people will use you. Most of the high-end poker rooms do offer an Affiliate Program. Check the details before signing up since some might offer higher percentage payouts than others. Another key feature to look at is whether they offer Multi-Tier, where you are paid a percentage made by affiliates that you referred to the site.

Game features are quite important when choosing an online poker room as well. From deal making to personal avatars, you want as much as possible and while some poker rooms rely heavily on the amount of game features they offer, some focus only on the game play. Depending on how dedicated you are to the game, maybe a poker room with more customization would be better for you. A few other popular game features that many well-known poker rooms offer are statistics, which allow you to check the percentage of flops you,'ve hit etc, player notes which are very helpful at finding out how your opponents play, and chat rooms.

Some poker rooms offer more in the way of "extras" than others do. For new players, a poker room's website can be a useful resource if they have articles on the pros, strategies, pictures, and online training. Some players just want to download the software and play poker, while others might want to read some articles or take a couple surveys. One extra that everyone enjoys is the deposit bonus, and most poker rooms offer a first time bonus.

Support and how much of it the poker room has to offer is based on how you are able to contact them. Some poker rooms only offer email support and some only offer telephone support. The better ones offer both and have a dedicated affiliate manager for their affiliate support.

When choosing an online poker room do your homework. In the end, you will appreciate the research you have done to choose the poker room that is right for you.
