How to join an Online Poker Room

There are two dominate Online Poker Rooms. FullTiltPoker and PokerStars, there are many other sites these two are the premier on-line Poker Sites. I have played both and find the only real difference is the interface. Personal preference will dictate which site you like best. Each has its little difference, but there is no particular features that will help you win more money on one site over the other. Everything I explain is works in all countries including the United States.

Both site offer bonuses on your initial real money deposit. These bonuses are free money. Even if you are just a break even poker player, these bonuses will turn you into a profitable poker player.

Just click on either site links to join a site qualify for your bonus.

People always ask me are these sites safe. There have been online poker sites that have been caught cheating, these are the smaller ones and they quickly go out of business. PokerStars and FullTiltPoker make so much money that there is no reason for them to cheat, and in fact they spend a lot of money on security to make sure players are not cheating.

Remember you are not winning or losing to the Poker Site you are winning or losing to other Poker Players. At any one time there will be hundreds of thousands of players playing poker. The online poker site does not care who wins or loses. They get a very small piece of the pot, usually 1 or 2 % with a cap of a few dollars if the pot is very large. With hundreds of thousands of players there are thousands of hands playing each minute and the site is making anywhere from 10 cents to 3 dollars per hand. Do the math there are a lot of reasons to make sure players feel safe playing online poker.

People ask how you get money in and out of a Poker Site. I have always used a bank clearing house called Instant Echeck. PokerStars and FullTiltPoker are connected to Instant Echeck so it is very easy to use. All you need is your bank routing number and account number.

Anytime you do a financial transaction over the internet there is a chance of fraud. For this reason I have set up a checking account I only use for the purpose of putting money into my online poker account. I keep a minimum balance in this account, so if anybody ever hacked into it, they would not get much money.

As far as getting money out of an online Poker account, you can use Instant Echeck and the money will be electronically transferred back into your checking account. Or you can request a check. I have always used the check request and somewhere between 5 and 15 days a check will show up. One issue with FullTiltPoker is they have a minimum check request of $100.00 where PokerStars does not have any minimum that I have had to deal with.

I have been playing online poker for over 4 years now and have never had a problem either putting money in or taking money out, so try it you will like it.

If you are still unsure about putting money in, you can play free money games for a while and get use to the interface and try both sites and then when you are ready for real money you can deposit money into your poker account. Remember to click on the below link to join so you get your bonus.
