Do I need skill to win money playing poker, or is it down to luck?

While getting a good hand is down to luck, knowing when to hold them and when to fold them is key. If you have recently started playing poker for real money, try learning the basics of classic Texas Hold’em before honing your strategy in low-stakes cash games and tournaments. While there is some element of luck (such as what cards you get dealt, and what is dealt on and around the table), you will need skill to out-play opponents.

Can I legally play real money poker in Canada?

Playing poker online is safe and legal, as long as you are of legal age, obeying the laws of your province and are using a reputable and registered gambling site. You must be 19-years-old, unless you are in Alberta, Manitoba or Quebec, where you need to be 18-years-old.

Can I withdraw the money I win?

Yes. For any money you win, you will be able to withdraw it safely and securely, whenever you like. Simply visit the Cashier section, click Withdrawal, enter how much you want to take out, then choose how you wish to receive the payment. Larger amounts may require you to confirm your account.

What is the easiest poker game?

If you’re just starting to learn poker, Texas Hold’em is considered to be one of the easiest forms to learn – though it takes time and skill to master. Each player starts with two ‘hole’ cards, which are for their eyes only. They can then make use of the community cards dealt into the centre of the table, which are visible to all players, to make the best five-card hand. It’s a game you can learn quite quickly.
