Nowadays, so many of the things that we know and love have moved online. Instead of renting movies from a store, we stream them on Netflix. Rather than just calling each other on the phone, we FaceTime. And for many of us, instead of playing poker in a traditional brick-and-mortar casino, we play online mobile poker. Ever since the boom in online poker, there’s been some debate around which is better: live poker or mobile poker? Well, while we might be a little biased here at Ignition, we know that online poker comes out on top every time. The things that really tip it over the edge? The features, of course. In this article, we list the benefits and features you get to enjoy when you play mobile poker instead of live poker. By the time we’re done, you’ll be eager to play mobile Ignition Poker.

Online/Mobile Poker vs. Live Poker

So, what are some of the biggest advantages of playing online poker over live poker? Here are the top 5:

1. Lower Cost

When you play online poker, you get all the fun and action while sidestepping the costs associated with transportation, drinks, food, and more. When you play mobile poker, you’ll save money by gaming from the comfort of your own space.

2. Convenience

That being said, thanks to the Ignition no-download app, you don’t have to game from the comfort of your own space – you can do it from anywhere. Mobile poker is especially convenient because you can do it anywhere, anytime. That’s right – we’re talking ultimate convenience in the palm of your hand. Got a five-minute break from work? Hop on your phone and smash out a quick round of poker. Need to kill time at the airport before jumping on a flight? There’s no better way to do it than with a few games of Ignition mobile poker.

3. Variety

When you visit a traditional casino or poker room, you’re limited to the games on offer at that venue. But online poker knows no bounds. When you play online, you’ll be spoiled for choice with a near-limitless range of cash games and poker tournaments. You’ll also be able to play anywhere from 1 to 20 tournaments, and enjoy up to 4 cash or Sit & Go tournament tables simultaneously, as well as multi-table tournaments at up to 20 tables. Variety is the spice of life – and you’ll get it in spades when you play Ignition Poker mobile.

4. Anonymity

You never want your competitors to have a leg-up on you, right? Well, thanks to the anonymity of online/mobile poker, they won’t ever again. Online poker provides a shield of privacy, which prevents your competitors from tracking your behaviors and playing tendencies.

5. Crypto Compatibility

Playing online poker also opens the door to an array of innovative payment options, including cryptocurrencies. Crypto poker is not only a fun and futuristic way to play, but it can also be profitable. Not to mention, crypto deposits and withdrawals are typically processed way faster.

At Ignition, we accept the following cryptocurrencies:

  • Bitcoin
  • Bitcoin Cash
  • Bitcoin LV
  • Ethereum
  • Litecoin
  • Tether (USDT)
