Poker Games

When electronic slot machines were introduced in land-based casinos, the opportunity arose to create a poker game that could be played on a machine. This exciting card game attracts a huge following, and after just a single hand, it’s easy to see why.

Choose your Hand: Once the player has placed their bet, cards will be dealt from the deck. The aim of online poker is to create the highest poker hand possible using the cards you have been dealt. Once the second set of cards has been dealt, the game will automatically determine whether the player has a winning hand and will pay out accordingly.

Understand your Hand’s Value: Because you are playing directly against the computer, winning is based purely on the hand you are holding. Online poker machines base the value of your hand on the poker hierarchy itself, and the value of your hand is depicted on the payable for the online poker game you are playing.

What Are the Differences Between Online and Offline Poker Tournaments?

Whether you’ve been honing your skills with online poker or enjoying friendly games at land-based establishments, poker tournaments offer players the chance to take their game, and possibly even fame, to the next level. 
 
During normal poker games, players play at a single table, there are minimum and maximum buy-ins, the blinds remain the same and players can cash out at any time. In poker tournaments, players play at multiple tables, the buy-in is fixed and players all receive the same amount of chips, the blinds increase at regular intervals, and the game ends for players who lose their chips as they cannot buy back in. This makes this type of event far more competitive, with players being paid their winnings according to where they finished in the tournament rankings.
 
Just like with normal poker games, there are a number of different types of poker tournaments, all of which can be played either online or at land-based events, allowing players to enjoy tournaments in two very different settings. So, what are the key differences between online and offline tournaments? Take a look.
 

Online Poker Tournaments

Online tournaments happen far more regularly than offline events and tend to be smaller events with smaller prize pools. This makes them ideal for players wanting to practice their competitive skills. Additionally, online casinos that hold tournaments often offer the opportunity to engage in exciting tournament formats like Progressive Knockout Poker, where you can apply unique strategies to thrive in the competition. Borgata Online offers a range of daily, weekly and seasonal online poker tournaments.
