4 Ways Live Poker Is The Most Social Way To Gamble Online

Published

on

social online gambling

Sociability heightens the enjoyment you can get from gambling. And no game oozes more social interaction than poker.

Playing offline or in a less interactive online lobby can be fun. But they lack the people and personality which makes poker come alive.

On the other hand, live poker embraces the best of online and blends it with a genuine casino atmosphere. Not to mention you can soak up the fun without having to step foot outside your own door.

Read on to discover why live poker is the most social online gambling experience. 

Live poker offers a better social setting

Most online sites offer a chat bar or options to click on set phrases like ‘good game’ or ‘I’ll get you next time’. But in all honesty, they do nothing but remind of an obvious lack of social interaction.

Why settle for a little, when you could have it all? Live casinos offer both online play and a social setting that does its best to resemble a real casino.

Forget about scrambling through typos and clicking speech bubbles. You can easily strike up a conversation by just talking. Meaning that you can have fun without relying exclusively on gameplay.

If the social upsides of live poker are piquing your interest, you can discover some amazing live poker rooms across the web. But do some research first, as certain platforms may suit your style better than others. My top tip is to take advantage of the best casino bonuses around. Finding a bonus at OnlineCasinos.co.uk means you can focus on socializing without putting real money on the line right off the bat. 

You can get to know people by their tells

Many online poker games offer up icons and avatars in place of players’ faces. But in doing so it removes a significant aspect of what makes poker so enthralling.

Face to face interaction boosts the likelihood of friendly competition, something all good social games need in its repertoire.

Player tells — from a ruffled nose to a twitchy eye — add new dimensions to the game.

For one, live poker is much more interesting when you can see a real flesh and blood opponent. If you’re constantly pitted against a faceless interface, the fun gets sucked out of the room pretty quickly.

Secondly, when you see an opponent, their reactions and mannerisms automatically factor into your next move. Understanding peoples tells takes time, but ultimately it will make you a better player and more adaptable to social situations beyond the poker table.

On a more personal note, people make connections with faces. And poker cardrooms don’t show you people’s faces. The benefit of visual interaction with live poker makes it easier to build connections with new people.

Live poker Involves a human opponent 

Poker sets itself apart from other gambling formats because of its social aspects. And the fact you face actual people.

While many casino games like slots force you to monotonously interact with a computer. Poker relies on two things, dealers and players — both of which are the genuine article.

There’s no need for over the top flashing lights or musical sequences to keep you paying attention. The tense nature of human opponents is enough to keep your mind sharp and keep the game interesting.

Additionally, video poker is a software-driven game. Meaning you don’t get mistakes from an AI, they’re too logical and hardwired against it. If they do go wrong it’s not fun because it will just break the game.

Whereas the real opponents found on live poker are ripe for human error and emotional moves. Making the game less predictable and closer to real-life.

Playing live poker could result in a slower pace

Standard online poker tends to be more convenient, offering predictably fast gameplay in a most digestible format. While guarantees of rapid action are good for gaming on the move, it leaves much to be desired when it comes to social interaction.

Conversely, live poker — though it’s not always a sure thing due to persistent re-buying — could offer a more drawn out experience.  Thus allowing players to savour the game and each others company.

Even then, there is much more room for variation when it comes to live poker. Never underestimate how human emotion can throw a spanner into the works.

Playing live poker adds an extra dimension to online gambling. They deliver a much more engaging experience where you can get to know your opponent. Perhaps even strike up a friendship.

Nevertheless, you should give live poker a try if you want to get more human interaction out of your hobby.

99Bitcoins takes over the “Dead Coins” project to become the cryptocurrency undertaker

Singapore, Singapore, 17th February, 2021, // ChainWire //

99Bitcoins, an educational website that maintains a list of Bitcoin obituaries made by the media, has taken over the Dead Coins project as well. This move effectively crowns 99Bitcoins as “The undertaker of the cryptoverse”.

Deadcoins.com was established in late 2017 to document the death of thousands of altcoins that popped up during the cryptocurrency mania of that time. The idea was simple – create a list of coins that have ceased to exist after the hype died down.

A coin can become “dead” due to a variety of reasons such as its development being halted, having no one that uses or trades it, being exposed as a scam and more. While the project was initially maintained only by its founders, it was later outsourced to the cryptocurrency community which was allowed to add their own dead coins.

“I think the dead coins project is a brilliant idea that needs a bit of polishing” says Ofir Beigel, owner and founder of 99Bitcoins. “The fact that anyone can add a dead coin themselves made the list of coins very inaccurate. We’ve spent days going through the complete list and sifted out all of the coins that were buried alive, so to speak. For example, Bitcoin, Tron, Dogecoin and Tether are just some of the coins that were listed when we took…
