Of course, the first thing to do is to choose an online casino you will be playing at. Of course, it is great to how so many choices, but that can also be confusing sometimes. Generally, some of the website better suit to beginners, others are full of big fishes. Also, websites have different policies when it comes to depositing, free rounds, withdrawals and other things. Therefore, you will have to do some kind of research that find out which one would be the perfect fit for you.
The next step would be to create an account. There are two types of online poker platforms around. In some cases, you will have to download some kind of a poker app to your desktop. In other cases, you play on your browser. This is a matter of personal preference but in both cases, you need to register. The process is usually pretty simple – username, password and a couple of more things is everything you need.

Since you will be a real-money player, you will have to make a deposit. Most online poker platforms support a variety of banking models, including debit and credit cards, popular e-wallets, bank transfers, pre-paid cards etc. In any case, some kind of verification is required. Usually, you will have to scan and send your ID to the website. Of course, this is just for the first time. After that, depositing will go smoothly and quickly.
Finally, you will have to choose which poker game you would like to play. All common types are available. Of course, those community poker games are the most popular. The first ones that come to mind are Texas Hold’em, Omaha and 7 Card Stud. All these community poker games have similar rules and the main thing about them that you start with an insufficient number of cards and then choose community cards from the table to complete the hand.
If you are a more traditional guy, the choice is also great. You can even play some of the oldest forms of the game, such as straight, draw and stud poker. These more traditional forms of poker also have different rules, but the main thing is that there are no community cards.
If you’re lucky enough to win some money, the next step would be withdrawal. Like in other online casino platforms, you can use the same methods as for depositing. In most cases, the withdrawal process lasts longer compared to depositing, usually a couple of days.
