3 Reasons to Try Online Poker in 2021

As much as we love basketball sometimes its nice to try other things isn’t it? I’ve been reading a lot of poker strategy forums and watching YouTube videos lately and finding it fascinating. The game is so simple yet so complex. It’s like some weird paradox that you can’t solve easily. Provided you are of legal age and in a country that permits it, online poker should definitely be a thing to try this year. That’s we I’m going to share three excellent reasons to give online poker a whirl.

Countless Resources to Help You

The standard reason to not try something is difficulty or time. It can seem time consuming to try a new game. Who wants to read a book or sign up to poker training lessons? Don’t worry! There are plenty of online resources to accelerate your learning. I managed to learn the fundamentals through a poker cheat sheet. It’s a super quick and easy way to get to grips with the basics and get some pointers. Some sites offer this for free and you can save them on your desktop/laptop with no bother.

The New Player Bonuses

The online poker sites are all competing with each other for our custom. This is to the point that they offer lucrative bonuses to sign up. Most of these come in the form of matched deposit. In other words, if you deposit £25, they will match that and offer you £25 bonus too. It’s a great way to bolster your online bankroll. Remember to read the terms and conditions though so you know what you have to do to withdraw it. No sites let you deposit and cash off the bonus without wagering some.

There are Loads of Formats

Online poker has come a long way. I remember people saying there used to only be a few forms around that received any traction. Now, there are countless formats available from sit and go, hyper turbo tournaments, fast fold poker, 6 max cash games and heads up. There is something for everyone and really makes playing online more pleasurable.


Whilst I am no expert at poker, I can definitely say there are persuasive reasons to try it in 2021. With so much resources, bonuses and formats available, it’s a no brainer. I hope you give online poker a try this year but as always, gamble responsibly and make other things your priority. Online poker can be a fun outlet but should not come before your personal life or studies.
