Online Poker Sites

Poker shot to fame a decade or so ago thanks to coverage of the World Series of Poker on TV. Soon people all over the world were rushing to try out a game normally found only in peoples basements and brick and mortar card rooms. 

We'll shortly have a guide to the top 10 best poker sites for UK players, but in the mean time you can see our full list of recommended poker rooms on our poker bonuses page.

Poker Networks & Software

In order for online poker to work, you need a decent pool of players to draw from. Poker sites which don't have enough liquidity won't be able to run as many tables meaning less games, and less choice for their customers. To get around this, all but the very biggest poker sites tend to belong to a network - where players and games are shared between all sites that operate on that network. For obvious reasons, sites on the same network will also use the same software or poker client.

Below you'll find a list of networks which are licensed and accept players from the UK, along with details of which sites operate on them. Unlike online casinos, most poker sites tend to only offer one network's games - so if you don't like the games or software at one site, you'll need to find one on another network.

Poker Games

Whilst Texas Hold'em, may be the most well known game (and the one that many people think of when you say 'poker') there are actually hundreds of very different games that have been invented, some of which are incredibly quirky. Online you'll find a small representation of the most popular forms - including versions of Hold'em, Stud and Omaha.
