Updated In August, 2014 - Online betting at poker rooms in 2014 is the most popular form of gambling. Internet poker sites draw in more players each day than online sports betting sites and online casino betting sites combined. Online poker is expected to be legalized in the USA in 2014 but until then millions of Americans play poker online every day. The best online poker sites in 2014 are listed below and we have a special bonus deal at each to offer you. The online poker vs live poker debate was over long ago. Solid Internet poker players can win much more money online, can play hundreds of hands per hour and are showered with more benefits than any live poker room or brick and mortar casino can even dream of. The best poker sites in 2014 are listed below. This includes two 2014 US poker sites and one European poker site. My selection of European poker sites is obviously lacking so I suggest checking the lists at www.uspokersites.lv if you are not from the USA. When you use our link to visit any of these online poker rooms you will claim free poker money, huge bonuses, exclusive tournament tickets and much much more.

Online poker sites and live poker rooms should not even be compared to each other any more. The same is kind of true for US and non-US rooms. Some online poker sites in 2014 have peak traffic levels over 300,000 and even the newest online poker rooms in 2014 have more traffic than a dozen B&M casinos. Our list of new USA poker sites for 2014 explains more. We also have specialized lists, like this list of US poker sites that accept Visa deposits in 2014. They have tournaments that boast 50,000+ entrants and they deal more hands per hour than every live poker room and casino in the world does in a week, combined. The 2014 US poker sites and the Euro poker room are without a doubt the best places to play poker on the Internet in 2014. At online poker sites you can play at 10+ tables at once, with an average speed of 100+ hands per hour. Live poker cash games are lucky to get 20 hands in per hour and you can hardly play at more than one table at once.

Online poker rooms also have a much larger selection. My local casino might have 10 poker tables going at any given time. A room like Pokerstars in 2014 will have tens of thousands of active real money tables. Plus online poker sites offer 5-20 different card games and the sitngos and tournaments are equally impressive. It is far easier to win money online than it is at a casino or poker room because there are so many unskilled players at the online poker tables. Millions of dollars switch hands every minute at online poker sites in 2014.
The section below covers the new legal USA online poker in 2014. What else can we expect to happen with online poker in 2014? The asian Internet poker market is growing quickly, as is the south American markets. I highly doubt any online poker rooms in 2014 will be able to challenge Pokerstars but the competition is heating up for the second and third positions. Failed U.S. online poker sites in Lock Poker are likely to finally die out in 2014. Global Internet poker traffic does seem to be favoring the multi-service gambling sites though. Bovada.lv, Betonline.ag and Sportsbetting.ag have expanded the traffic gap between them and poker sites that offer only poker. The top EU poker rooms online in 2014 also tend to offer other services like sportsbooks and casinos. I suppose Pokerstars and Full Tilt Poker are exceptions to the rule. I do not know why they have not added casino and sports betting, they are perfectly positioned for it. Mobile Internet poker in 2014 is also growing more popular, especially since Android tablets and phones are so cheap. Carbon Poker and the Merge network will likely continue to make their comeback in the U.S. market due to their new fast payouts, as reported by www.pokerpayouts.org. This Carbon Poker review in 2014 explains more. I recently added a new US poker site in 2014: Sportsbetting.ag Poker.
There is an emerging legal U.S. poker market in 2014. Right now there are only three licensed US poker rooms online and hardly any Americans play for money at these legal rooms but it is a step in the right direction. The three states with legal real money poker in the USA are Delaware, Nevada and New Jersey. Some American gambling companies like the Borgata operate poker sites in these states and EU poker rooms like Party Poker operate in NJ in 2014. All of the legal U.S. online poker sites in 2014 combined do not even have 25% Bovada Poker's cash game traffic because you have to be in one of these states to play for real cash. I suggest playing at the big US poker rooms listed above until the American online poker market matures and grows.
Many people ask me what is the best place for online poker in 2014 if you are from the USA. The answer is constantly changing. In mid 2014 the best US poker rooms were Bovada Poker, CarbonPoker.ag, Poker Host and Bet Online Poker. The US poker site with the most traffic is Bovada and the largest poker room overall is Poker Stars, but they do not accept Americans right now. The 2014 online poker business is growing in Europe and the Americas. Nevada recently opened a legal poker room online.
