All the big players in the online poker world know the value of effective advertising, promotion, affiliate deals, paid referals, and tournament sponsorship. Mastering promotion and customer attraction is the key to online poker room success, because most of the other duties are handled by the online poker software provider.

Guaranteed availability of players is an invaluable promotional claim for an online poker room.
The most successful online poker sites use a mix of promotion techniques to attract new players, including free rolls, discounts, subsidies, tournaments, and free games. Tribeca offers promotional events network wide, benefitting all the rooms that run our online poker software. One of the more successful techniques used by online poker roomsinvolves something called 'satellite tournaments,' in which online poker players can compete to gain entry into real poker tournaments. Fueling the demand for online poker satellite tournaments are successes like the 2003 World Series Of Poker champ Chris Moneymaker, and 2004 champ Greg 'Fossilman' Raymer, who both won entry to the big event through online poker rooms.
And these great wins, along with many other great online poker stories, come at a time when television discovers the draw of poker events like The World Series Of Poker, catapulting the already myth laden game to new mass market heights. And the online poker world is now ready to serve this growing demand with sophisticated technologies that offer realistic online poker gameplay, security, and online poker customer service, 24/7.
A Different Game
In contrast to the atmosphere of the traditional live gaming environment, an online poker game is a comfortable experience. Whether you're an experienced online poker player or a novice, there's no intimidating crowd, dress code, travel, or scheduling involved in an online poker game. Online poker is fun, at your service.
The Law And Online Poker
And the online poker game is much more user friendly and as such, it's a great place to learn. On most online poker sites, you can read the rules and watch others play before sitting at a table. On the best sites, you can play online poker for play money to start. Once you're in an online poker game, the technology offers some conveniences you don't have in a live game. For example, you get a reminder when it's your turn. No one gets angry stares from others at the online poker table for an innocent goof or miscue. And you can play online poker at your level, and progress at your own pace.
And online poker offers some real advantages for serious players. For example, the speed of the game - online poker games tend to be much quicker, since the time consuming activities of shuffling and dealing are handled instaneously. Many pros will play more than one table, some as many as 4 different hands at 4 different online poker sites simultaneously. Try that at a brick and mortar poker room.
Another major difference between the traditional brick and mortar poker room and an online poker room is the overhead. Online poker rooms take up no physical real estate, and can add tables without concern for space.
A brick and mortar poker room can only take players who are nearby, but an online poker room may have players from diverse parts of the world, all playing online poker at the same virtual table. This is a contribution to the shrinking of the globe by the online poker community. That online poker player seated at your table could just as easily be from your home town, or an online poker player in Rangoon.
There is some concern that online poker rooms may be more vulnerable to fraud - particularly collusion between players, but the latest versions of online poker software have very robust fraud detection built in. And online poker rooms also have another advantage in this area: the ability to look at the hand history of cards played by any online poker player on the site, making the identification of fraudulent behavior, including collusion, much easier. Online poker rooms can also identify the players' IP addresses to prevent players from the same household from playing online poker at the same tables.Leading online poker software providers like Tribeca are applying technologyto identify fraudulent activity and to ensure fairness of play for all participants in online poker games.
