Winning a little money playing online Texas Holdem games is fun. Honestly, it never gets old. But it pales in comparison to winning big money through online poker tournaments. That’s where millionaires who bathe in poker chips are made literally overnight! Real money Texas Holdem games can change your life, if you’re good (and a little lucky).

In this article, we’ll cover four of the best ways to become a rich poker playboy or poker queen, as applicable. The path you choose is up to you, and most people will probably attempt to combine all of these methods in their mission to play their way to the money mountain top.

If online poker tournaments are the “shortcut” to poker millions, cash games are the scenic route. But if you’re diligent and employ solid strategies, real money Texas Holdem can be your key to wealth. It’s really all about leveling up by winning your games.

Proper bankroll management requires that you play at tables with a percentage of your bankroll in chips, not the whole thing. If you deposit $1,000 cash or Bitcoin (for bonus hunters) at Ignition Casino, you only want to play online Texas Holdem with $50-100 at stake at the table in a given session, especially if you’re playing no limit. This means that you probably need to find a $.50/1 table so that your stack is big enough to absorb the swings. As you tally up your winnings from session to session, you can eventually join a bigger table. Once you reach $2,000, you can sit at a $1/2 table, and on and on it grows.

Ultimately, the goal is to become a high stakes online Texas Holdem player and get enough of a chip stack to play at the best $100/200 or $200/400 tables where big money can be made. From there, poker millions are within reach.


Jackpot Sit and Gos at Ignition Casino are some of the fastest and most rewarding online poker tournaments you can play. These rapid-fire tourneys let you play real money Texas Holdem games with two other players in a winner-take-all final table simulation. They come together super quickly, so there’s no waiting around for a scheduled online poker tournament to go live. There’s no delay while you wait for tons of players to arrive from around the world.

A randomized bonus prize amount up to 1,000 times your buy-in will be at stake when you play in Jackpot Sit and Go tournaments.
