The Top 10 Reasons to Play Poker Online

There are certain rushes that just can’t be replicated. You know, that rush you got the first time you drove a car on your own. When you had your first kiss. The first time you…well, you get the idea. 

If you ask us, playing online poker gives its own incredible rush. The nail-biting anticipation, the thrill when you score an epic win, the pride when your bankroll is brimming with winnings. While we’re firm believers that poker is the GOAT whether it’s played in person or online, we tend to lean to the online sphere. We may be a little biased, but that’s beside the point.

Not convinced? Give us five minutes and you will be, mate. We’re pretty persuasive that way. Check out our top 10 reasons why real money online poker should be your new go-to real money game here at Ignition Casino.

1. Play Anywhere, Anytime 

Why bother visiting a brick-and-mortar casino when you can just carry the casino in your pocket? If you’ve got a mobile device, an Internet connection, and some money in your account, you’ve got everything you need to play the day away. The ability to play online poker on mobile devices – such as smartphones and tablets – is one of our best features, especially since you don’t even need to download a special software to do it. Simply visit our poker mobile page, log in to your account, and go from there!

2. Multi-Hand, Multi-Table Fun

At a live casino, you’d probably see around 30 hands per hour (depending on the skill of the dealer and the players). But when you play online poker at Ignition Casino? You’ll see thrice as many hands per hour – at a single table. 

When you gamble with us, you can play up to a max of four cash tables or 15 poker tournament tables simultaneously. Not to mention, you have the option to play Zone Poker, which transports you to a brand-new table as soon as you wrap up your previous game. 

3. More Tables = More Money 

Yes, we know: we already touched on the multi-table feature. But we can’t stress enough how beneficial this feature is to you. When you really think about it, it’s simple maths. And before you start stressing, we weren’t good at maths in school either. But if we can wrap our heads around this, you can, too. More tables + more hands = more chances to win cold, hard cash.

That’s it. Told ya it was simple, didn’t we? 

Volume is vital when you play games like Texas Hold’em for real money and you’re making a major effort to boost your bankroll. Start with a single table and add more as you build your confidence.

 4. Less Waiting, More Playing 

When you visit a traditional casino, there’s heaps of waiting around. And honestly, who has the time (or patience) for that? Depending on the casino, you could quite literally spend hours waiting in a queue. 

But when you play poker online at Ignition Casino, you’ll automatically be given a seat at any table with availability. Don’t see a table you like? Start your own! Or you can play some Zone Poker or a Sit-and-Go, including a Jackpot Sit and Go. In this format,  you’ll instantly face off with two competitors for a random prize. But that’s not all – you can also use the Quick Seat feature to secure your spot at a table in little as two clicks.

 5. Play Whenever You Want

At Ignition Casino, the fun never stops. We’ve got poker games happening 24/7/365, so it is quite literally never a dull moment. 

Got time on smoko? We’ll be here. Looking for a way to kill time at the airport, your GP’s waiting room, or even on the toilet (we don’t judge)? We’ve got you, mate.

Kick start the fun whenever you want, take as many breaks as you need, and come back when it suits you. No matter your schedule, we’ve got games to work around it. 

Not to mention, even if you’ve got no shirt and no shoes, there’s no problem at our casino. Of course, no shirt and no shoes is rarely a problem among Aussies, but you get the idea. At Ignition Casino, you’ll spend less time worrying about dress codes and more time worrying about upping your game. 

6. No Travel Required

When you play poker online with us, there’s no commute involved. Play from your bed, couch, office – wherever you are, we’ll be there for you on your desktop, smartphone, or tablet. No more getting stuck in traffic. No more paying for petrol and parking. No more hassle. Just the fun, freedom, and convenience you deserve. 

7. Sweeter Poker Bonuses and Promos

As if you needed another reason to love Ignition, our online poker and casino promotions are heaps more generous than in-person casinos. If you’re a newbie, then you’re in a particularly good spot; you can earn up to $2,000 in free money with the help of our 200% Poker and Casino Welcome Bonus

Plus, we offer a Royal Flush Bonus and a Bad Beat Bonus. You can even earn Poker Points as part of the ongoing Ignition Casino rewards program. The more you play, the more points you’ll gain, and the more rewards you’ll receive. Take a peek at our Casino Promotions page for more details.

8. Play Texas Hold’em and Beyond

Variety is the spice of life, which is why we offer a whole range of poker games, rather than strictly real money Texas Hold’em. Choose from Texas Hold’em, Omaha and Omaha Hi/Lo, with blinds going as low as 2₵/5₵. So, even if the purse strings are a little tight, you can still get in on the action. 

You’ll also have the option of playing Fixed Limit, Pot-Limit or No-Limit poker. Keen for a chilled-out poker experience? Try your hand (pun intended) at Limit games. These lower your variance and preserve your bankroll as you learn how to play online poker for real money.

9. You’ll Get Sneaky Online Poker “Cheat Sheets”

Play poker online at Ignition Casino and you’ll have the ability to use handy charts (aka “cheat sheets”) to your advantage as you move through the game. No need to worry about silly house rules or traditional poker etiquette – no one can see you, anyway!

This is especially helpful for novice players who are still getting used to poker rules. It’s kinda like having a pair of training wheels while you learn to ride a bike. Before you know it, you’ll be so knowledgeable and skilled that you’ll forget the charts even exist. 

10. Examine Your Poker Hand History

You’ve probably heard the uber-famous quote “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” Well, mate, it’s never been truer than in the context of online poker!

At Ignition Casino, you can improve your poker game by looking back at previous hands you’ve played and assessing your errors. All hand histories are available for download after 24 hours have passed. After that, feel free to get in there and replay your hands from start to finish. 

While there are heaps more reasons to play online poker at Ignition Casino, we’ll cap it at these 10. If you haven’t already, download Ignition Poker or log in to the web app on your smartphone to experience the excitement firsthand. Start with some practice rounds before switching to real money poker whenever you’re ready. 

Play poker your way here at Ignition Casino. We’ll be waiting.
