Poker Online is a fun, easy to learn and intellectually challenging game that rewards real skill unlike slots or the lottery. It is also a game that can be played at any time, for as long as you like, from the comfort of your own home.
The best online poker sites have a variety of game formats and a clean, well-designed lobby that makes navigation simple. You’ll typically see a menu bar at the top of the lobby that allows you to select from Cash Games, Tournaments, Sit & Go’s and whatever special format games they run. The most important feature for new players is a section that categorizes the games by level of player – such as “Beginner” tables that only seat players who classify themselves as beginners. This dramatically levels the playing field for newbies while they get used to the pace and features of the software.
Most online poker sites have a hand history tracker that logs the hands you play and lets you analyze your own play and the play of your opponents. There are also HUD’s, which are heads-up displays that display stats during a game that help you decide whether to call, raise, fold or otherwise act on your opponent’s actions. Pros often use these tools to gain an edge over their competition.
Ignition has a solid mobile app and a fast, reliable poker client that works on desktops and iOS/Android devices. The site accepts a lot of deposit methods including credit cards, Bitcoin and a bunch of popular e-wallets for cross-border options. Withdrawals are quick, with most cryptocurrencies being processed within an hour and card users getting their money in under two hours.
