How to Play
Become Part of the WSOP Heritage
It's estimated that over 40,000,000 people worldwide play poker online each year. Some play for money, some for prizes, some just for fun.
Online poker is faster and less intimidating than live games, with more variations available any time of the day or night.
Playing online poker is a snap. A poker table is displayed on your computer screen. The friendly user interface allows you to make in-game decisions with one click of your mouse. Players take turns being the dealer, as the dealer's position rotates clockwise after each hand. Just like in a casino, there's a professional dealer to deal the cards and keep the game moving. Online poker is fast and fair, with no wait to shuffle, no collection of discards (known as the "muck"), and no misdeals.

How is Online Poker Different?
- Proximity to your opponents: With online poker, you can play against people anywhere in Nevada and New Jersey!
- Multi-tabling: It's as close to cloning yourself as you can get. With online poker, you can play multiple tables at the same time.
- Speed of play: Online poker operates at approximately 4 to 5 times the pace of offline poker. You may also be multi-tabling, which means you could see as many as 20 times more hands than you would see in a live casino!
- Actions speak, not words: In a live casino, players can initiate or call a bet verbally, and it's binding. Online decisions are put into action with the buttons on your screen. There are no take-backs once you press the button, so make sure to keep any itchy trigger fingers in your pockets!
