  1. Thank you for sharing all the best US poker sites. They look very interesting.

    National League Poker looks most interesting to me since you mentioned “free”. It would be a great place to practice for a beginner like me. Wondering if you can still win something even if you do not put any money in the game? Also, can it be addicting?

    1. HI Haroda,

      Thank you for taking time to read the poker through my poker list on my web page.  Th page is still under construction, and will contain links to a much greater review page, as well as affiliate link to the different site that are suggested.  With regard to the National League of Poker the site is 100% free.  It also offers the opportunity to win both prizes and money by working your way through various levels of play.  There is also the opportunity to purchase a subscription (not required, but available) t the league that does away with the advertisements and allows for certain advantage in the level o play.  As for being addicting; online poker or online casinos are only as addicting to an individual as the individual is to becoming addicted.  Another words, there is no correct answer to your question, because It truly depends on the individual.  Player A, may be easily addicted to game play just by playing a few games or hands of poker.  Player B, might be able to play for games in online casinos for hours and hours or sit at an online poker table for 8 hours straight, yet not be addicted to playing.  There truly is no right or wrong answer.  The keep is playing responsibly.  Is online poker play or playing on an online casino sound interesting to you?  Hope this helps to answer your questions…  I hope to hear back, and thank you again… Ted
