What’s this business about free poker online? Where does one go to find such free games, and is it really 100% free? With the raise in popularity of the Internet, the popularity of online gaming has also increased substantially, and yes, being able to enjoy a completing free game of poker online is a nice side benefit of this.
Online casinos are like any other company. They know that their business relies on not only getting customers to pay for their services, but on building that initial familiarity with their potential customers. People who have enjoyed a product for free in the past are much more likely to pay for it in the future if a desire to play for real money should come about. Someone who is familiar with a particular online casino is much more likely to sign up for a real money account, especially if it is only a few clicks away from the free software (the same software used to play for real money).
As such, pretty much all serious online poker rooms will offer you an option to play for free. And not just against the computer, but against real players like yourself. Of course, you won’t be playing for money and you won’t have the opportunity to win anything, but since when was playing poker all about the money anyway? This way, you can practice your game without putting your money on the line. Even if you do want to play for real money eventually, you should always test out an online casino before committing to them. Just make sure not to give anyone your credit card number if you are only signing up for a free account.
