See Photos and Auction Catalog. Thursday, November 12, Estate Auction. We have a page to answer those questions and give some tips on how to navigate the internet poker sphere. This page is more specific. These are questions we receive quite often about legal online poker for United States players.

The complications within the US market alone are difficult to follow, so we put together some of the most frequently asked questions and provided answers. Zynga Poker is a poker app that is available on mobile devices and through Facebook. It is classified as a social poker game because players do not deposit real money for poker action.

They play for virtual chips, which are allocated to players at no cost. This makes it different from real-money sites like PokerStars, poker, and PartyPoker, all dot-com sites that function on poker for money.

Players can buy chips on Zynga Poker. However, they are not necessary to play. Those who lose all of their play-money tokens and want to keep playing without waiting for more free tokens can pay a small fee to obtain more chips.

Even so, they are not competing for real money and cannot win cash prizes. Social games are falling under more scrutiny for the in-game chip purchases. In the state of Washington , for example, some social games have been the subject of recent lawsuits.

This remains a gray area of US law. Americas Cardroom and other similar US sites have continued to operate in the American market in the years since Black Friday , and the US government has not taken any action thus far against those operators. For the most part, sites that are based outside of the United States offer poker to customers in states without specific laws in place addressing internet gambling.

For a state like Kentucky, which has proven hostile to all types of online gambling by previously seizing domains and fighting intense legal battles against companies like PokerStars, players may not have many choices for online poker whatsoever. Offshore operators also tend to avoid states like New Jersey, which has a strictly regulated market that requires sites to be licensed to offer games like online poker.

The United States as a whole does not have a federal regulatory system for internet gaming or poker. And a ruling by the US Department of Justice regarding the Wire Act put the ultimate decision for legalization and regulation to each individual state. Legal online poker means something different to the four states that have legalized it thus far. Nevada will not accept license applications from companies like PokerStars that operated in the US after , while New Jersey and Pennsylvania have no such stipulation.

Most states with legal online poker require the poker operators to partner with a land-based casino operation in order to obtain licensing. Each state has its own set of laws and regulations. A poker site that wants to be legal in the US must check with individual states and interpret their laws and regulations per legal advice. There are no laws that question the legality of a player supporting another in poker, whether in cash games or tournaments.

There was a recent case with a poker staking site called YouStake that illustrates the point. For quite some time, the owners of the site were forced to stop accepting business from players seeking backers or those wanting to support other players, all due to an investigation by the US Securities and Exchange Commission SEC. The investigation went on for some time, questioning the legality of its business model, but there were never any charges filed or conclusions reached.

Finally, YouStake filed a lawsuit against the SEC demanding charges be filed or the investigation be dropped. The poker boom was a time when online poker thrived in nearly every country in the world, and it translated into record numbers of players entering the game on every level.

Whether live or online, poker was at peak popularity. It all ended when various countries began to regulate the industry within their borders, and the United States destroyed it all when it indicted the heads of the top poker sites in the world on Black Friday in It is tough to foresee a situation in which US online poker could reach the levels of popularity of the poker boom. Even if the US legalized poker online, players in the US would not be able to share the same tables with those in European countries and many others around the world.

India has its own segregated market, China has banned all things poker, and European countries are only now beginning to share their player pools. The entire market has changed in the past decade. The domain was seized by the DOJ and eventually closed, leaving players without funds while PokerStars paid all players immediately and resumed operations.

By September , Full Tilt players remained unpaid, and the DOJ charged company directors with running a Ponzi scheme that paid them hundreds of millions of dollars while leaving no funds to settle player balances. Ultimately, PokerStars worked out an arrangement with the US government to purchase the assets of Full Tilt Poker and repay all of its players as part of its own Black Friday settlement.

The repayment process was finally completed in after five years of administrative work by the government-appointment claims administrator, Garden City Group. It shares tables and players with PokerStars in available markets, and all promotions and bonuses are the same as those offered by Stars. Full Tilt is not available to any players in the United States. Legal real-money online poker is available in four states as of mid, and each state has its own unique licensing process.

Sites wanting to offer internet poker in any of those states must apply for a license, pay fees, and establish service per the regulations of that state. Nevada is the only state that has legalized only internet poker. All other states also offer online casino games, like slot play and table games. Other companies that are willing to partner with a land-based casino property in Nevada are welcome to contact the Nevada Gaming Commission to inquire about licensing requirements, fees, and processes.

Delaware regulates its online poker and casino games through the Delaware Lottery. There are no more licenses available for online poker operators at this time.

New Jersey poker sites online are run through the Division of Gaming Enforcement, which offers all pertinent information for operators on its website. PokerStars and others are licensed through the DGE, and all were investigated, approved, and invoiced for the appropriate fees. The regulations are strict in New Jersey, but several poker sites operate there successfully. Pennsylvania legalized online poker and casino games in , and the initial licensing process is underway in with an expected launch of the first sites by the end of The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board has set the regulatory framework for the industry, and though there are some revisions taking place in , license requirements and other information can be found on the PGCB website.

Responsible gambling rules are in place for all states, as are parameters pertaining to advertising, marketing, and responsible gaming measures. USA online poker players today face the challenge of choosing the right poker site. In certain states, it means choosing from licensed operators only — only one exists in Nevada — and in others, it requires making choices about which sites are based offshore but are properly regulated and can be trusted.

Recreational players can more easily find online poker sites for US players than semi-pro or professional poker players, as the latter require more buy-in options, tournaments, cash games, and higher limits than many sites today can offer. The key is then to decide if they can continue in an online poker career or adjust their play to incorporate live poker. Some players also face decisions about finding backers or backing other players.

US players, however, must also decide if available poker sites are enough or if they should consider relocating to another country in order to have more access to online poker. Or if relocation to a different part of the US may be ideal in order to live near more live poker options. In the United States, the government has yet to regulate the cryptocurrency industry, meaning bitcoin and others like Litecoin are free of any governmental rules or oversight. Poker players can use cryptocurrency for many online poker rooms based outside of the US that offer services to American players.

It is not uncommon for an online poker table to average ninety to one hundred hands per hour. There are many ways in which online poker is considerably cheaper to play than conventional poker. While the rake structures of online poker sites might not differ fundamentally from those in brick and mortar operations, most of the other incidental expenses that are entailed by playing poker in a live room do not exist in online poker.

An online poker player can play at home and thus incur no transportation costs to get to and from the poker room. Provided the player already has a somewhat modern computer and an Internet connection, there are no further up-front equipment costs to get started. There are also considerable incidental expenses once on a live poker table. In addition to the rake, tipping the dealers, chip runners, servers and other casino employees is almost universally expected, putting a further drain on a player's profits.

Also, whereas an online player can enter and leave tables almost as he pleases, once seated at a live table a player must remain there until he wishes to stop playing, or else go back to the bottom of the waiting list. Food and beverages at casinos are generally expensive even compared to other hospitality establishments in the same city, let alone compared to at home, and casino managers feel little incentive to provide any complimentary food or drink for poker players.

In the brick and mortar casinos, the only real way a player can increase his earnings is to increase his limit, likely encountering better opponents in the process. In the online world, players have another option: Unlike a traditional casino where it is physically impossible to play at more than one table at a time, most online poker rooms permit this. Depending on the site and the player's ability to make speedy decisions, a player might play several tables at the same time, viewing them each in a separate window on the computer display.

After dealer tips, the "winning" player would probably barely break even before any other incidental expenses. The main restriction limiting the number of tables a player can play is the need to make consistently good decisions within the allotted time at every table, but some online players can effectively play up to eight or more tables at once. This can not only increase winnings but can also help to keep a player's income reasonably stable, since instead of staking his entire bankroll on one higher limit table he is splitting his bankroll, wins and losses amongst many lower limit tables, probably also encountering somewhat less skilled opponents in the process.

Another important difference results from the fact that some online poker rooms offer online poker schools that teach the basics and significantly speed up the learning curve for novices.

Many online poker rooms also provide free money play so that players may practice these skills in various poker games and limits without the risk of losing real money, and generally offer the hand history of played hands for analysis and discussion using a poker hand converter.

People who previously had no way to learn and improve because they had no one to play with now have the ability to learn the game much quicker and gain experience from free-money play. The limits associated with online poker range down to far lower levels than the table limits at a traditional casino.

Few if any online poker sites allow action to be taken "in the dark ", while this is usually allowed and applied by players in real gaming houses. It is also not uncommon for online poker sites to not allow a player the option of showing their hand before folding if they are the giving up the pot to the last remaining bettor. This practice is also typically allowed in casinos. One issue exclusive to online poker is the fact that players come from around the world and deal in a variety of currencies.

This is not an issue in live poker where everyone present can be expected to carry the local currency. Most online poker sites operate games exclusively in U. There are two methods by which poker sites can cater to players who do not deal with U. The first method is to hold players' funds in their native currencies and convert them only when players enter and leave games.

The main benefit of this method for players is to ensure that bankrolls are not subject to exchange rate fluctuations against their local currencies while they are not playing. Also, most sites that use this method usually apply the same exchange rate when a player cashes out of a game as when he bought in, ensuring that players do not expend significant sums simply by entering and leaving games.

The other method is to require players to convert their funds when depositing them. However, some sites that use this policy do accept payments in a variety of currencies and convert funds at a lower premium compared to what banks and credit card companies would charge. Others only accept payment in U. One benefit of this method is that a player who constantly "tops up" his chip stack to a constant level some poker rooms have an optional feature that can perform this function automatically does not have to worry about rounding issues when topping up with a nominal sum — these could add up over time.

Players may also make use of ewallets , virtual wallets that will allow players to store their funds online in the currency of their choice. This allows them to deposit at poker sites without worrying about further currency conversion. Many online poker sites, particularly those that serve the United States, began adopting cryptocurrencies in as a means of bypassing the UIGEA. The majority of these poker rooms accept deposits in Bitcoin and then convert them to U.

There also exist cryptocurrency-only operators who denominate their games in Bitcoin or fractions of a bitcoin, avoiding fiat currencies entirely. Various types of useful software applications are available for online play. Such tools include hand database programs that save, sort, and recall all hand histories played online.

Scanning the active tables for known players and displaying previous statistics from hands with those players next to their name known as a Heads up display or HUD is a common feature of these programs and is allowed by most sites.

Other programs include hand re-players and odds, equity or variance calculators. Some software goes as far as to provide you with quizzes, or scan your previously played hands and flag likely mistakes.

Many online poker sites offer incentives to players, especially new depositors, in the form of bonuses. Usually, the bonuses are paid out incrementally as certain amounts are raked by the player. In addition, several online cardrooms have developed VIP programs to reward regular players. Poker rooms often offer additional bonuses for players who wish to top-up their accounts.

These are known as reload bonuses. Many online rooms also offer rakeback and some offer poker propping. See the online casino article for more on general information on bonuses. Online poker rooms typically operate through a separate piece of software. This may be cross-platform, for example using a Java applet or WebGL , allowing the program to run equally well on various computer systems such as Windows , Linux and macOS. However, many online poker rooms offer downloadable programs designed only for Microsoft Windows which require a compatibility layer such as Wine to run on Macintosh or Linux computers.

Some sites do make available clients that run natively on Mac or Linux. Some poker rooms have started offering poker on portable devices mobile phones , smart phones , PDAs. The functionality of mobile online poker software is much the same as computer-based clients, albeit adapted to the interface of mobile devices. The player must be able to receive a WiFi or cell phone signal in order to play. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
