Online Poker has been partly responsible for a dramatic increase in the number of poker players worldwide. C C A stated online poker revenues grew from $82.7 million in 2001 to $2.4 billion in 2005, while a survey carried out by DrKW and Global Betting and Gaming Consultants asserted online poker revenues in 2004 were at $1.4 billion.
I prefer online poker because it allows you to play for very low stakes (1c/2c). You can built your bankroll from 1 $ to 1 000 000 $. Pokersites offer a big poker bonus when you start playing at their site. But almost none of them give free money. You have to play for money to earn your bonus. So don't believe messages like: FREE 500$ WHEN YOU PLAY AT OUR SITE!
Welcome bonus at the biggest sites:
party poker bonus = up to 500$.
full tilt poker bonus = They'll automatically match your initial deposit with a 100% bonus up to $600!
pokerstars bonus = They'll automatically match your initial deposit with a 100% bonus up to $600!
unibet bonus = up to 500$.
