Here are 15, count 'em 15, good reasons to play poker online...

  1. You can play from the comfort of your own home (or, if you're a little bit naughty, office). No driving, no messing about with public transport, no looking for somewhere to park. Easy.
  2. No-one knows who you are. If you'd rather people didn't know you liked poker, there's no need for anyone to ever find out. So that's no awkward moments, no bumping into people down at the store.
  3. If you're new to the game, it's a relaxed and non-intimidating environment in which to play. There are no tough looking guys who you're frankly terrified of beating, and you won't catch any snide glances if you make a mistake.
  4. Unlike most casinos, there's no dress code. Should the mood take you, feel free to play in your pants. Or, heaven forbid, even less.
  5. You can play for as little or as long as you like. We don't kick you out because it's late, and you don't have to hammer down the door to get us to open. Play for as long as you want, when you want.
  6. We give you a rather generous bonus on your first deposit. And we run a bewildering array of offers, competitions and promotions which mean you get more fun for your money. You don't get this at your local card school. Having said that, we don't give you free sandwiches.
  7. Our rake is low, and there aren't any dealers to tip. Of course, if you really feel compelled to tip, send all presents to our offices.
  8. You can take off with your winnings whenever you want. No dirty looks, no fearing for your life. Which is good.
  9. We offer lots of tables and lots of willing opponents at a wide range of table stakes so you can always find a game that suits you. Add to this all the tournaments that we offer every single day, and there's more poker action than you can shake a stick at.
  10. It doesn't matter if you have a lousy poker face. Scream, whoop, holler. No-one will ever know. Except your neighbours, and they won't know why.
  11. Online shuffling is more random than in the real world. And our sophisticated software and tracking makes cheating and collusion practically impossible to get away with. So don't try it.
  12. We have many tables at stakes lower than you'll find in a casino or real life poker room. With tables starting at $0.05/$0.10 and tournaments at $0.10, you can get your poker fun without having to risk the shirt off your back.
  13. If you're a bit handy at poker, you can play at two tables at once, doubling your potential winnings. Only attempt this if you're an experienced player: it can also double your losses.
  14. Playing online is much faster. Faster is better.
  15. When you play with us, our software guides you through the game telling you what to do and when meaning you can't get things wrong and look like a dolt. Using software also eliminates dealer error (really, it happens to even the best of them) and you can't accidentally muck a winning hand.
