Online Poker or Online Casino
Today we will try to compare online poker and online casino. We would like to share with you our insights into trends in the development of the gambling world and the online poker world. For the past decade, we have been studying the gambling market both in the former Soviet Union countries and abroad. We hope that the results and observations presented will be useful to you. Let’s try to understand what is more profitable: Online poker or online casino?
The Golden Age of Poker or the Ingenious Deception of the 21st Century
As a whole, we consider creating online poker to be one of the biggest scams of the 21st century. The idea of creating a huge casino where hundreds of players will play and each bank will play 3-5% in favor of the casino; this is a brilliant idea. But today poker rooms have gone even further. They spend money from players’ accounts, even as a commission. There are many instances where poker operators were shut down without paying ordinary players money. One fine day, the player sees a 404 error while trying to log in to your account, and if stories of this kind previously caused a resonance in poker players’ circles, now there will be only a smile on the faces of those who understand.
You Play with Players and Earn Money from rooms
I will move a little away from our main topic to try to express my opinion regarding the choice between poker and casino. I went to the casino once. I was alone there when I entered the hallway. Also, there was an incredibly sexy girl, the pit boss and the cursors at the tables. As long as I was alone, the attention of the staff focused on me. My attention was only focused on the pit boss. It was the first time I was in this casino.
I passed the rules of the game in the communication process. The point is that the unpopular casinos generally make some concessions to the rules and thus try to attract players by reducing their mathematical expectations for winnings. For example, a free card exchange in six card poker or a free game from the dealer.
Rake and Casino Percentage in Poker
My attention was drawn to the table because of several people. In response to my question, the girl answered with a smile, that at this table players can play with each other at this table. This game costs 5% of the size of your money, and in the end, all players’ money is in the register regardless of who lost or won. These words remained in my memory for many years. In my opinion, these words very clearly characterize the essence of online poker.
Imagine how much money you contribute daily as a commission. If you believe the PokerStars lobby: More than 3,000 cash players play at their tables simultaneously, and around 50,000 players play in tournaments. Consider the revenue per hour if the average speed of software distribution is 1 minute if the commission in the tournament is 5% of the contribution for entry. Even if you take minimum values, such a casino house makes at least $ 100,000 per hour. Also, all this is the real money of the players. When playing on the Blood Suckers slot machine, you win back 98% of the bets made. When playing poker you pay 3% in favor of the poker room.
