How To Get Started In Online Poker


Are you ready for online poker? To create an online poker account can open up a whole new world of fun and entertainment and you can play against people all across the globe. To get started in online poker is easy. Here’s a step by step approach.

First — Learn Poker

Some people come to online poker for the live game, while others have never played poker before and just think it looks like fun. Either way, it never hurts to take a little refresher before starting.

You can find poker rules and basic strategies online. A quick read through of these should prepare you to get started.

Second — Find a Good Poker Site

There are a number of good poker sites out there. The most popular are PartyPoker (not available in the U.S.), PokerStars and Full Tilt, but there are many others from which to choose.

Look through the sites, read reviews and check out their graphics. Remember that once you choose a site, you are not committed and can always change sites or add new sites.

Third — Find a Good Poker Bonus

When you sign up with a new poker site, you have to grab the biggest poker bonus you can find. Sign-up bonuses can double the amount of your deposit. Just look for advertisements for the site you want to sign up for and find a sign-up bonus code.

Look for a high percentage match bonus. Put the code in with your first deposit for a big boost to your bankroll.

Fourth — Sign Up and Play

When you’re ready, go to the site sign up page, put in your information and make your deposit. Remember to put in that bonus code. Then you’ll be ready to go.

You might want to start with a freeroll, a free to enter tournament with real prizes. You may also wish to try the free play money games just to get a feel for the mechanics. After that, search for the type of game, stakes and format that suits you and start enjoying the world of online poker!
