Online Poker In The UK

Online poker is a multi-billion dollar industry throughout the world, and has been expanding at an enormous rate, especially in the UK. For the last two years, online poker in the UK has become even more popular for various reasons. The televised broadcasting of the World Series of Poker in recent years has helped, as well as the much deserved addition of the WSOP Europe in London, but there’s a lot more to it than that.

Topping the list would be the elimination of legal online poker in the United Stated. Before the UIGEA was passes in October of 2006, most online poker rooms were marketing their product to the US market. When that market all but bottomed out, online poker rooms had to change their tactics, and the European market was the perfect breeding ground for new players.

All of a sudden, online poker rooms were promoting much higher welcome bonuses, some in excess of $1,000, aiming their campaigns at online poker fans in the UK and the rest of Europe. Asia was another primary candidate, but legislation is still a bit tricky there. The United Kingdom already has well defined laws in place as to the legalities of online poker in the UK.

Literally thousands of UK poker fans are signing up at online poker rooms each day. Not only is it convenient and open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, you actually have the chance to take on some of the biggest names in professional poker. Head over to Full Tilt Poker and take on members of "The Hendon Mob". Stop in at Poker Stars and face off with the likes of Daniel Negreanu, Greg Raymer, Gavin Griffin and others. Most all professional poker players can be found at one online poker room or another.

It is well known that the majority of poker enthusiasts do prefer, at least on occasion, to visit a live poker room, where the interaction level goes far and beyond that of a typical online poker room. However, the technologies and innovations in today’s world are progressing at an alarming rate, and even the interaction factor has been practically eliminated. Online poker rooms offer live chat with their fellow poker players, f course, but there are a select few online poker rooms that went well beyond this level.

PKR, for instance, has created an elaborate 3D graphical interface that is not just realistic in appearance; players can actually use what is called an "Emote Control System" to project body language and other physical behaviorisms. While it’s not yet exactly paralleled to live poker, it’s certainly getting close!

Sure, the UK has plenty of live casinos, poker clubs, pubs and the ever present home games, but sometimes you just want to relax in the comfort of your own home, knowing you have access to all of the food and drinks in your kitchen at no additional cost, and play online poker to your heart’s content. The multitude of reputable sites offering online poker in the UK allows you to do just that.
