Poker Play Money and Real Money
You already have to read or hear these terms: play money and real money. Here is a small explanation.
When you register and download the software of an online poker room, you have two options: the play money mode and the real money mode. All poker rooms offer both options.
– The play money is a free poker mode. Everyone can register in play money mode. Your account will then be credited with a certain amount of virtual dollars (for example 1000 € virtual) and you can play these virtual euros during tournaments or cash games against other players in play money mode. If you lose these virtual dollars (your chips), you can request that your account be re-credited.
– Real Money is literally the real money mode. That is to say that you play with real money that you have deposited on the online poker room. Real money does not necessarily mean playing big money. Most poker rooms offer tournaments from € 1 entrance fee, see less for some. However, before you start in real money, I advise you to perfect your poker game in play money mode and play some freeroll tournaments.

In search of a quality service
As everywhere, the quality and the speed of the transactions, as well as the customer service, are not insignificant criteria in the choice of an online room. Whether via email, phone or chat, each support is different but must be able to offer a quality service to players in case of problems. It is also this criterion that will enter the final scoring, and players are invited to give their opinion on each table.
