Online Poker's 20th Anniversary

Tags: poker history
Posted on 31 January 2018 by "T".
January 1, 2018 is the 20th anniversary of online poker, ever since Planet Poker became the very first virtual card room to host real-money games. Planet Poker ran online poker games at approximately nine months before the film Rounders launched in movie theaters. If you have played at Planet Poker in the past, you will surely feel those nostalgic, and for sure you have been one of those who patie[...]   Read more » Online Poker's 20th Anniversary

You're right. On BRM, those words are connected with adds, so there are blocked... It's pretty odd.

now when I read a few posts from forum dudes and/or dudettes regarding whether it's been long time that online poker exists or vice versa... I kinda lean towards that it's only 20 years. it looks to me that it's been there for ages and a few years more, but hey it's only 20. happy to be able to see it all right from the start

Wow, online poker has been around for two decades? I didn't know that. The online game I frequently played in the late '90s on my Vaio desktop and ThinkPad was "Interactive Online Chess." I guess that was a Java based game. I would need to restart my computer once every two hours because of a resource deficit...

The poker world has shrunk the last few years due to the new laws and regulations.
But all the ones operating now, have the necessary licenses, so you can say,
there are no more troubles on the horizon.
It is all about competition now.

this is true, but not for all poker rooms. There are many names in the online games industry which are not so strong and can not afford to pay the license. If in my country most of them gave up the license and were blocked this means they are not legalized in many countries where they are currently operating. Until and full tilt gave up the license in my country so neither did they want to activate here. There are only 3-4 rooms and it is frustrating. Not full tilt, party poker, all i poker network.

Calicul, I see that there are lots of casinos, poker rooms and sportsbook sites, which have no romanian license. Why that happens, is it too expensive for them to buy a license? Or something else? It should be a disaster for romanian gamblers, not being able to play their favourite games.

Yes because the license must be purchased with real money. After that there are the taxes for every year. Pokerstars is licensed until 2026, 888 poker and Unibet also have a license but the rest of poker rooms or casinos not. So there is a problem for the rest of the poker rooms, they do not want to buy the license. They can no longer function in Romania, not even illegal. Are permanently blocked if they do not have a license. Is not a disaster for the romanian players as long as they have stayed with these 3 rooms.

Thank you for the answer, Calicul. Now I understand the situation a bit more. We in Russia are also have lots of sites blocked, but we're able to connect to the gambling sites via proxy servers and VPN, and if poker room accepts players then we are able to register and play.

And why you would wanna connect to a site using vpn or a proxy?
It is a waste of time if you ask me, and money probably.
Since there are laws any site that you are playing at, with VPN can refuse to pay you...
And they will be right about it.

I do not want to connect with proxy servers or VPN because in the situation when i deposit money or withdraw transactions can be seen by taxiers and the national gambling office. In this situation my money will be confiscated, i will pay a fine, and me get criminal file. This is not good. If i leave the country i will be able to play in many rooms.
