With the boom of online casinos one game has really come out on top -and that´s online poker.

But now that casino gambling has made its way to the internet, poker seems to be the most dominant force in the industry. There are entire online casino sites dedicated strictly to the game of poker.
Poker has traditionally done well at land based casinos and also in private circles. The image of a bunch of friends getting together in a smoke filled room to play poker is an old stereotype but still very much exists. The reason that poker is so popular is because of the publicity boost it has received.
