Online poker, along with televised poker, really propelled the game into its huge growth phase. Online poker sites are generally connected with one or more online poker payment services which can be used to fund player accounts with money with which to play poker.

Most online poker sites are members of poker networks. Although each site has their own poker room and often their own bonuses and promotions, all of the poker rooms are part of the same network. When a player logs into one poker room, he or she is actually playing with people who have logged in from any poker rooms on the network. This network sharing increases the number of active players on each poker room, giving the player more game selection at any time of the day.
