If you have been to an online casino to play poker or blackjack you have seen the vast number of tables you can choose from in some virtual game rooms. However, you may have also seen tables that were marked private and you had to be invited to play. You probably wondered first what they are, and second how to get invited. The information here should help you understand what a private table is and how you can play at them.
Many people think that because these games are online that there is no socialization and people just go in and play and leave. That is just not the case. Many of these players have been playing online a long time and know each other by their screen name. People can become friends this way and want to set up certain times for games, especially if some of the players live in different time zones. Casinos have found a way to do this with private tables.
Private tables are the online casinos answer to avid players getting frustrated when a rookie joins a game and it become unruly. The casino lets the players create their own game table and only those people invited to the game can join. This provides privacy for the players and keeps rookies from jumping in on a game that might be getting tense without having a newbie asking questions and playing strangely.
The player that sets up the table will most likely be asked to give the table a name or will be given a table number by the casino, this varies. The table stake will have to be set prior to the game and all players will have to be notified of the table name and what time the game starts. Some casinos won’t let the players in after the private game starts. After that, you simply play like you would any other online poker game.
Private online casino tables can be a lot of fun and allow you to interact with people you have met in the virtual world without interference from the entire public world. Check out what your casino has to offer and set up your own table.
