If you enjoy playing poker, but don’t want to take a trip to the nearest poker room to play, online poker is definitely for you.
But with so many online poker sites available, which one do you pick?
We are spending a ridiculous amount of hours researching and playing poker on a number of online poker sites.
This is our, always updated, top list of the very best (and not so good) online poker sites.
1. 888 Poker
888 Poker has been around for almost 20 years which gives them a stellar trust in my book.
888 Poker is especially good for new and amateur players.
Firstly, because they offer a no deposit bonus of up to $88 – this is unmatched in the industry. T&Cs apply.
Secondly, since they have a reputation for attracting just new and amateur players, it is easier to not lose your money, but rather win some while playing on 888 Poker.
888 Poker will offer you state of the art gameplay on practically any device you want to play on (PC, MAC, Android, iPhone etc).
The main drawback of 888 Poker is that they are quite strict on which players that are allowed to play. US players are for example not allowed, but for you guys, we have Americas Cardroom.PLAY NOW
2. Americas Cardroom
Americas Cardroom is one heck of a cool poker site.
I will tell you why:
It is open for US players – actually, open for players all over the world with no restrictions.
It has one of the absolute best first deposit bonus systems I’ve ever seen.
You will receive $2 to $6 free real money cash EVERY DAY for 20 consecutive days.
This means that even if you lose all your money the first day, you will receive a steady stream of real money for the next 20 days.
One small drawback though is the lack of mobile play and a sometimes slow PC client.
But, for new players who can take advantage of the extremely generous bonus, this is site is your best option.PLAY NOW
PokerStars is the biggest online poker site.
That sentence alone should tell you that it is hard to go wrong with PokerStars.
At PokerStars, you get the full package, playable on any device, tons of tournaments and an excellent first deposit bonus.
With their bonus system, you will be bombarded with tickets and free cash for your first 6 days after making a deposit.
Some of the biggest poker tournament is arranged by PokerStars.
And, often joined by one of the many poker professionals sponsored by PokerStars.
If you need to up your game they have beginner tutorials and lots of other information on their website.
As stated in the beginning, being the biggest poker site they know what they are doing. And, you will notice it.PLAY NOW
bet365 is not the largest poker site, but the largest gambling company in the world.
As many other major gambling companies, they were founded around the year 2000.
With bet365 you can feel safe, they won’t suddenly disappear along with your money.
As a new player, you will receive a decent welcome package upon your first deposit.
The welcome package includes some very nice tournament tickets, which you can use immediately.
With these tickets, you have the chance to win some real money and entries to bigger tournaments.
The desktop client is well thought out and works smooth. However, the real fun starts with their mobile app which is nothing but outstanding.
I found myself playing a lot more on the Android app than on my PC.
It is hard to find any major drawbacks with bet365 poker.PLAY NOW
32Red is a well-known player in the poker industry being around since 2003.
They are not the biggest player out there but does a great job with what they have.
Their first deposit bonus system is a little bit different then what we are used to.
Regardless of what amount you deposit you have the chance to earn up to $1000.
The bonus payout is solely based on the amount of RedBacks you earn.
This gives experienced and good players quite an opportunity to earn some extra cash.
Unfortunately, you can only play at 32Red using their PC desktop client.
This is actually quite annoying since I love to play on my phone. But, if you are okay with just PC play then you will do fine.PLAY NOW
BetClic has roots all the way back to 2005, originally from France.
Betclic uses the iPoker client and network, which ensures a good amount of players to play against.
After you have registered and shoved in your first deposit you will receive a bunch of tournament tickets valued at €10.
These tickets are in addition to the generous 200% up to €750 match bonus.
Altogether, Betclic offers a decent bonus package.
Unfortunately, they only offer gameplay from their PC client.
Overall, Betclic is nice and all, but there is nothing that truly stands out.
You should give them a try, utilize the bonus package, and if you are not winning, move on to another poker site.PLAY NOW
