Online Gambling Getting Started

by Jerry "Jet" Whittaker
July 6, 2006

On the opposite end of the collection spectrum, there are the game specific niche sites or specialty sites. These specialty sites focus their energy not just on a gambling genre, such as casino gaming, but on one particular type of game. Of all of the niche formats, none is more regular than poker. One of the world's most popular and challenging games, poker sites have speedily become an online gambling mainstay, with poker players of all levels flocking to them in droves. Not only do these sites proffer fun and challenging play, but many of them also host free and qualification tournaments with prizes that tip well into the millions. Unlike winning the lottery, where players believe on luck, these poker tournaments offer skilled players a real shot at leaving the table with a wad of cash at little or no risk.

How to get started with online gambling

Of course these sites trait more than just tournaments, so players who are so prone can pull up a chair at any number of tables. Betting limits differ, with some tables running as low as a quarter while others cost as much as a grand to get in. Game variation also depends mostly on the site, with the most prominent being the Holdem and Stud games. All games are played accurately like in a real casino, with players vying against one another for the pot while the house takes a small cut. Another kind of niche format is the recently developed person-to-person betting. In this next generation betting site, players not only get to gamble against the house, or each other, but they also get to BE the house.


These sites work just like any other sports book, with patrons gamble on any number of events. The only dissimilarity is that bettors have the option to switch sides and not only place bets, but book them against other gamers. This same type of alternative has also started appearing in a limited number of casino sites, allowing a player to actually be the dealer against the other players. All that is necessary is a large enough bankroll to meet any possible losses. Undoubtedly, as technology and popular demand of online gaming grows, we will see and even larger variety of gaming sites and offerings develop. But for now, these descriptions will help you to understand the distinction between the current sites and help you to identify what type of online gaming venue is right for you.
