Using an online poker room is an effective way to take advantage of small stakes and low overhead. In addition, the pace of play is much quicker than live poker. This means that players can play more tables and log a much higher number of hands in a single sitting. It is also a good way to take advantage of the freeroll tournaments that many online poker rooms offer.
While many states ban online poker, only four states offer legal online poker. These states are Nevada, New Jersey, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. Each of these states has an authorized legal right to operate a poker site. New Jersey joined the interstate compact with Nevada in 2018. Since 2013, Delaware has been operating an online poker site. Until now, Pennsylvania has not yet regulated online poker. However, this could change soon.
In the past, the only way for a US poker player to enjoy online poker was to deposit money with an offshore site. Using an offshore site is not illegal, but it comes with the downside of being unable to withdraw funds. The DoJ has not yet prosecuted players for accessing offshore online poker rooms.
In terms of the actual game, it is not difficult to find an online poker site that offers multiple tables at once. Some sites allow players to log up to eight tables at once. Some sites even offer mobile versions of their poker sites. The mobile version of an online poker site can be accessed via a desktop PC, smartphone, or tablet. The mobile site offers easy navigation and offers convenient features.
While it is not the first time that a poker game has been able to deal out more than one hand per minute, it is the first time that an online poker room has been able to do it with multiple tables. Online poker games can also deal out more hands per hour in short-handed games, which is the main benefit of having more than one table at a time.
One of the best things about online poker is that it is available on multiple devices. Many players use tablets and laptops to play online poker. If an operator decides to launch an online poker site in Connecticut, it will likely be available on both desktop and mobile devices. Although there are currently only three states that offer legal online poker options, this could change soon.
In addition to a legal license, Connecticut also has the option of signing into a multi-state online gaming agreement. This option could make Connecticut a much more interesting market for online poker. There are no specifics on how a site would work in this scenario, but lawmakers have indicated that shared liquidity would be a viable solution.
While there are no concrete plans to launch an online poker site in Connecticut, the state is moving forward towards legalization. While this may mean that the state will not have a regulated online poker site for another year, the path to interstate poker is opening up soon.
