We’ve all heard the legends of the professional gamblers who buy houses for cash and drink champagne for breakfast. The truth is that any Joe in an online casino can reach those heights and earn big money, but for newcomers the vast array of games leaves them wondering where to head first. This article outlines as a guide for new players two of the most popular games that appear in online casinos – Roulette and Poker.
A poker game is similar to the Olympics in many ways. They both take a lot of skill, people train for years to get to the top, and they are both extremely intense to be involved in.
Poker is popular with people from all walks of life, including Barak Obama who first joined the league of presidents to play a hand or two in the game when he was a young, bright eyed US Senator.
Poker is a game that traditionally has been a bit of a man’s world, but today, with more and more players joining online sites, there are more women than ever who are playing the game.
In fact, it’s not just online that women have gained a greater presence when playing poker. Gradually, you see more and more women involved in the top tier of live poker games and tournaments. True, they are still in the minority, with less than 10% of the seats at live poker games taken by women, but there are more regular incidences of women winning the big prizes.
I must admit I was quite surprised to see people debating whether or not they should allow their kids to participate in the adult gambling sessions. What if they become addicts and ruin their lives? I personally do not see any problem with playing casino games with my kids. In fact, I used to spend most of my free time with them, playing various games, from Old Maid, Mahjong and Uno to Rummy and Poker. I still remember my 4 year-old daughter recognizing the number two while she was still in kindergarten. And for the record, she is happily married now and not spending all her wages on gambling.
