How to play poker online

download install

Downloading and installing your poker client is simple and straight forward. Simply click the download link which will be prominent on the site home page, and follow the instructions on the screen. Be sure to submit valid email name and address information during the sign up phase, to avoid any hassles down the road. Pick a good username you can be happy with as some sites do not allow changes to it. It goes without saying that you should always use a unique password that you don't use anywhere else for your account. One of the biggest sources of compromised passwords is when users use the same password on multiple sites allowing a single weak link site to enable hackers access to their other accounts.

Most downloads will be for MS Windows machines so you may have to seek alternative download links for MAC clients if they are available. With the emerging popularity of mobile apps, many major poker sites now offer iPhone and Android versions of their online poker games.
