Here are some things to consider when choosing a poker room for a beginner.

Tutorials

PokerStars, partypoker and 888 have good educational content. Many poker rooms offer missions with good bonuses to help new players get started.М

Non deposit bonuses

888 offers a non deposit bonus for new account registration. Other rooms prefer first deposit bonuses offering up to 100$ worth of prizes for a first deposit of 20$ or more. All these bonuses can be grouped as bonuses for beginners since they serve a common purpose.

First deposit bonuses

More ambitious beginners looking to deposit their entire bankroll are encouraged to do so by 100-200% matching first deposit bonuses. These are usually released incrementally as rake is accumulated and have several months to clear. It’s a great opportunity to build a bankroll ans is usually equivalent to 20-50% rakeback on top of room’s loyalty program.

Freerolls

A great way to compete for real money prizes as well as get used to the game. Most rooms offer some freeroll program. Freerolls can be viewed in the tournament lobby.

Some freerolls are restricted by region or password protected. Use social media and community websites to access these.
