Online is the answer to everything. From basic to mammoth tasks, the internet helps us in everything. Not only tasks, the internet is the biggest medium of recreation for us in this generation. Every kind of gaming has arrived to a stage where we can play them on our mobile phones to laptops- Be it outdoor games like football and cricket and indoor games like carrom, chess, poker. Previously, it was a trend that poker was only played in poker rooms but now, digitalization has helped us to the game bring to our hand, in our convenient devices. Here we will talk about few perks of online poker gaming over live gaming-
1) Comfort: Just imagine, you are in a casino or poker room, playing live poker for over 4 hours now. You are sitting there, managing both your game and public decency. How tiring the whole process is! You can survive another hour or two of gaming, after which, your fatigue would start influencing your game. As a result, you have much more chances of losing than winning. Now imagine another situation where you are literally sitting or lying on your bed in your undies, with your favourite food by your side, enough water and no care about public decency. I bet you, such comfort won't exhaust you much even if you play for 12 hours at a stretch. You are taking breaks as per your mood and then returning to the game in your homely comfort. Now you can decide for yourself.
2) Variety: Most of the poker rooms don't have a huge variety of games. Plus, few of the rules of the game and chip value vary from casino to casino. Is it possible for you to go to a different poker room after every hour of gaming? Thats impossible! Thus, you are missing out on so many offers, tourneys, rake back deals and others. But online poker gives you this liberty. You can change the website as per your will even after every hand! Thus, you not only get a variety of games and tourneys but also financial benefits like great rake back deals.
3) Your expressions are your secret: If you are one of those, who find it very difficult to put on a 'poker face' during gaming, online gaming is the right choice for you. When you play online, no one can see you thus you can express your frustration, bliss, irritation, nervousness as and when you wish; your body language would not compromise the strength of your cards this way. Go and burn a voodoo doll of your biggest competitor when you are angry without caring about who saw you during the process!
4) Multi-table gaming and faster gaming: Since you are a matter and according to science, a matter can't be omnipresent. So, while live gaming, you can attend to only a single table at a time. Thus lesser opportunity of earning. Online poker isn't that heartless and thus lets you play on multiple tables at a time- it's just a matter of minimizing one dialogue box to open another. Also, online gaming is faster comparatively. The number of hands within the same time span equals to more opportunity to earn.
5) Your bankroll is never too less: Not being to afford is not something you should be ashamed of. It's natural. But what do you do when your bankroll isn't enough to play a game of poker at the casino because most of the casinos don't have micro- limit games. You need to have a stipulated minimum amount to enroll yourself into any table. But online poker allows poker to be played at very low stakes and micro-limit. You even have free-roll tournaments if you are totally out of cash. So, there is a scope for everyone.
The perks of online gaming are countless. I have listed only five of them here. Rest is for you to enumerate after your online gaming experiences!
