Although the media interest and Hollywood endorsement gave poker a healthy push forward, they are not the sole reason for pokers success. In fact they are even not the main reason. The thing that turned poker into an international consensus, untouched by the usual debate over legalized gambling is the same thing that separated it from the land based casinos and made it accessible to everyone – The amazing success of online casinos and online gambling in general.
In the last five years online casinos and online poker room s have become popular like land based casinos never been. Online gambling has turned gambling and poker into something that is so easy, accessible and fun that you can’t help but try it.
Online poker rooms have increased the poker playing population tremendously. Many people who were interested in poker but never had anywhere to play it can now easily access hundreds of poker rooms or online casinos from the comfort of their homes.
Online poker has also changed the way the game is played. An online poker player doesn’t have to have a poker face or to know how to control his behavior around the table. The only thing that is important in online poker is the game itself.
