The Live Poker Experience

If you haven't played in a live game for a while, you may have forgotten how special the experience is. The feeling of sitting down in a real Texas Hold'em game, cards sliding across the felt, and mountains of chips moving from one bankroll to another - it all adds up to a much more exciting experience than online games will ever be able to match. Factor in the ability to look your opponents in the eye and you also end up with a much deeper game, where bluffing and playing the man take on a whole new level of importance. At the end of the day, nothing can quite compare with gambling in the real world; you just have to know what you're doing.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I play at a land based poker room legally?

Although the popularity of online poker is growing nothing can quite beat that feeling of playing live poker. Luckily for those that love the buzz of a real casino, the laws surrounding land based poker are much clearer than those surrounding online poker sites. Nevada and Louisiana are currently the only two states where you can play live poker state-wide. For those playing in other states, you'll have to stick to certain areas to be able to play poker.

What should I look for in a live poker room?

Playing at a live poker site is one of the most exciting experiences and the type of room you choose will be integral to your playing experience. Live poker play in Vegas, the world capital of land based poker, can be a once in a life time experience. The lights, the hustle, the tears and cheers of other players can be exhilarating and stimulating. But it can also be overwhelming. For newbies it is important to find a casino with a wide range of games at all stakes. If you're looking for a softer game, poker rooms outside of the big cities should be your go to. Also, look out for casinos with a wide range of players and ones boasting excellent player benefits. 

Are land based poker rooms safe?

Land based poker rooms are 100% safe. When playing at a licensed casino you can rest assured that security will be tight. Most live poker sites will keep a close eye on everything that is happening in their rooms, using the best technology to make sure all of their walls have eyes. You'll also notice security guards patrolling the floor, allowing you to relax and focus on your hand.

How much do I stand to win?

Your winning potential will depend on a number of things. The type of game you are playing and at what level, how much you put down, who you are playing (playing against pros will obviously lower your winning odds), and how much lady luck is on your side. If you're new to poker than we suggest you start with a lower stakes game and work your way up. Also never bet beyond your means, poker should be enjoyable so just think of it as a fun night out.

Is there accommodation available for me?

Jumping from the poker room straight in to your hotel bed is one of the best ways to end your night. So make sure that you have a look at what's on offer at the casino of your choice. Some places will offer players discounted "poker room rates" which can often give you up to 25% off. Qualification for these discounted rates varies from place to place, some casinos will require a few hours of poker play per day. We recommend you call your chosen casino before your visit to find out what they have available.

Are there VIP or loyalty programs offered?

Yes of course. Live poker sites will have a number of reward programs and comps to reward their most loyal players. Before you start playing speak with the casino host and set yourself up with a player card. This will allow you to collect points which can we used within the casino. Some VIP programs can even get you free accommodation and access to exclusive areas.
