One of the most satisfying features of online casino gambling when compared to gambling at a real casino is the range of casino games we can play. Clearly the online casinos do not have the space restrictions of most of their land based rivals and to our benefit have taken full advantage of this freedom. Slots gambling is the most obvious beneficiary of this feature of online gambling, but we also see it in other gambling games such as poker. Gambling on poker has really taken off since the online casinos became widely available in Ireland, with Texas Hold’em leading the way, but there are also many other poker formats now available at most of the major online casino sites. Texas Hold’em can be a bit too hot for some poker gambling enthusiasts on a tight budget, and 5 card draw against the house may be more to their taste. Even poker gambling fans who enjoy the thrills of playing poker with community cards, as in Texas Hold’em, have a choice nowadays with the most popular alternative online being Omaha poker which also uses five community cards but with each player holding four cards face down instead of two. All of these alternative poker gambling formats can be found on our casino games pages where we detail the rules and some strategies to help new entrants to the world of poker gambling. We are reliably informed that the most popular online poker gambling game after Texas Hold’em is currently 7 card Stud poker. This poker format entails each player being dealt two cards face down followed five face up cards dealt one at a time after each betting round. Many online casinos also offer 5 card Stud poker, with each player holding one card face down, followed by four cards dealt face up, again after each betting round. Whatever your preference there are now a variety of poker gambling variations to choose from online, so make the most of all the available poker formats and give them a go.
