For a country cracking down on everything from cigarettes to drink the one thing Britain doesn’t seem that bothered about is gambling. Its now illegal to advertise cigarettes even to the point where F1 cars had to lose sponsorship money but gambling seems to be on the up.
Television is one way being exploited, everything from online bingo to casinos online are being advertised but nothing seems as widely advertised as Poker. Apart from the standard adverts inviting you to join some casino to play there are adverts now showing you different games out for it on computers, consoles etc. Some countries even have channels specifically for Poker, even 24hr. In Britain I notice its on standard TV channels, although usually at something like 1 in the morning.
There are plenty of others jumping on the bandwagon. An example is football grounds. All have boards around the ground and practically all the major clubs have either Poker or Casinos on at least one https://bakatpoker.cc .
This may some like a complaint but it isn’t. I love to have the freedom of choice when it comes to gambling and if I want to go online to play poker then I want the option. I do worry about children getting into gambling (not online as there are age restrictions) but playing at home etc. For adults though it’s fine but I don’t need to see it everywhere. The biggest problem to me is that most people think they can just join and make money without even knowing the rules or the amounts they can lose. To this end I have created a web-site with instructions on how to play the MANY different types of Poker.
A lot of people have never heard of Texas Hold Em All, or Omaha poker. There’s 7 Card Stud and 5 Card Draw, and a lot of variations of these such as pot limit, Hi/Lo and no limit. These casinos know that not everyone understands the game and will make money from them quite easily and some of these games can cost a lot of money to learn the hard way. Please make sure you understand all the rules before gambling. If there is something on my site that you don’t understand them write and let me know. I will do all I can to help.
One last thing to remember, playing against people online will cost a lot before you know what you are doing, even if you understand everything on my site. Some of these people have been playing for years and are really good at reading the game. The disadvantage for them and you is that it’s hard to read someone on the net. Tapping fingers may be a give-away if they’re sat next to you but it won’t help you or anyone else sat 2,000 miles away on the end of a keyboard. However good you are its still gambling, nobody can say they have never lost at poker because everyone needs some luck in any game with cards.
