When it comes to poker, you need to have a lot of skill, but also hope that luck is on your side. Due to the large amounts of money now involved in the game, the popularity of the game has increased as well. Although big money games were limited to brick and mortar casinos, the emergence of online casino sites means that players can compete from the comfort of their own home. The casino Betfair site allows you to play against other poker players hoping to get a winning combination.

Poker is mainly a game of skill, but there is also a certain amount of luck involved. There are certain combinations which are more successful than others. The best combination a player can receive is the Royal Flush. This hand is extremely rare in poker and the chance of receiving this hand is 649,739/1! However having a better card combination doesn’t guarantee large sums of money as the other players will be aware of the strength of the hand that the player has.
