If you're a fan of online poker real money games, then you're probably already familiar with the fact that there are two main ways to play at Juicy Stakes. There’s our online table games casino, and our poker platform, powered by the esteemed Horizon Poker Network.

What sets us apart from many other online gaming sites is that Juicy Stakes offers players the opportunity to experience both online poker and poker tournaments in one safe place. This is thanks to our online casino’s seamless integration with Juicy Stakes Poker – and vice versa.

As for actual gameplay, and how you will experience online poker real money games at our dual-purpose platform, the two options vary vastly from one another. So, what exactly are the differences between the two, and which option is right for you? Let's delve into some of the pros and cons of both options.

Pros and Cons of Poker Tournaments at Juicy Stakes Poker


  • Exciting gameplay: if you’re looking for a thrilling and adrenalin-fuelled way to play online poker real money games, you’ll enjoy the fast-paced action of poker tournaments at Juicy Stakes Poker. Especially as you’ll be competing against other players in real-time to potentially win big prizes.
  • Increased interaction: Since you're playing against other players in real time, the gameplay feels more interactive. You can see other players – albeit represented by their Account I.D.s – at the table, placing their bets and choosing to raise or fold. Many players find this experience to feel more captivating and immersive.
  • Big prizes: Poker tournaments at Juicy Stakes Poker offer the opportunity to win big prizes, including cash and other rewards. There are poker tournaments with different stakes, and if you opt for high-stakes games, you could walk away with a significant payout if you win.


  • Quick decision making: Since poker tournaments are fast-paced, you don't have a lot of time to make decisions. It literally comes down to a few seconds. This can be stressful for some players, especially those who are new to tournament play.
  • Limited variety: While Juicy Stakes Poker offers a range of tournament options, there is still a limited variety in terms of games. The big focus is on Hold’Em and Omaha. This means you may end up playing the same online poker real money games in tournaments, over and over again.

Pros and Cons of Online Poker at Juicy Stakes Casino


  • Relaxed gameplay: When you play online poker at Juicy Stakes Casino, you're in control of the pace of the game. You can take as long as you need to make your decisions at our online table games casino – and you don't have to worry about any time constraints or pressure from other players.
  • More poker options: There is no shortage of variety at our online table games casino. At Juicy Stakes Casino you get access to poker games like Pai Gow Poker by Betsoft, Casino Hold'Em and Caribbean Stud by Tangente Gaming, Triple Edge Poker and Oasis Poker by Nucleus Gaming, to name but a few. This means you can switch things up and try new games whenever you want.
  • Massive game variety: If you want to give playing online poker real money games a break, the good news is that Juicy Stakes Casino also offers hundreds of other game genres by multiple software developers. Even as an online table games casino, we offer loads of slots, specialty games and more.


  • Limited interaction: Since you're not playing against other players in real time, you don't get the same level of interaction and socialization that you would in a live online poker real money game. This can make the experience feel a bit more isolated and less engaging.
  • No real-time tournaments: While Juicy Stakes Casino offers a variety of online table games, it doesn't have real-time tournaments like Juicy Stakes Poker does. If you're someone who enjoys the excitement of tournament play, this could be a downside.

Which Option Is Right for You?

Ultimately, whether you choose to play online poker real money games at Juicy Stakes Casino or compete in poker tournaments at Juicy Stakes Poker, it comes down to personal preference. Here are a few factors that you can take into account when making a determination of what is right for you:

  1. Are you looking for a more relaxed, self-paced gameplay experience, or a fast-paced, adrenaline-fueled tournament experience?
  2. Do you enjoy playing with other players in real-time, or are you more comfortable with it being just you against the casino?
  3. Are you interested in winning big prizes and titles, or are you more focused on trying out different games and having fun?

If you prefer a more relaxed and self-paced gameplay experience, then online poker at Juicy Stakes Casino may be the better option for you. On the other hand, if you're looking for a more exciting and competitive experience with the potential for big payouts, then poker tournaments at Juicy Stakes Poker may be a better fit.

Two Platforms – One Login!

Most poker rooms that offer online poker real money games focus solely on poker. These sites are dedicated to the game, offering tournaments – and everything else you’d expect from a poker platform. What they don’t offer is the opportunity to play online poker real money titles at both a casino – and a poker room!

Once you’ve signed up at either Juicy Stakes Poker or Juicy Stakes Casino, you can use the same secure login credentials to access both platforms. In fact, when you’re logged in to the Juicy Stakes Poker room, you’ll notice a “Play Casino” tab in the top left of your screen. Click or tap on that – and you’ll be transported straight to Juicy Stakes’ casino counterpart!

If you’re playing at our online table games casino that offers slots, video poker, roulette, and much more, engage the Juicy Stakes logo at the top left of the screen. This will redirect you to the home screen where you can click or tap on the “DEAL ME IN” icon. The second screen will display a big yellow “PLAY NOW” button. Click on that – and you’re in the Juicy Stakes Poker room!

Our Final Two Cents

In conclusion, whether you choose to play at our online casino or poker room, both options grant the prospect of enjoying top-quality online poker real money games. The difference is simply in the gameplay. Each option has its own set of pros and cons, which means it comes down to you – and what you’re looking to gain out of the experience.

Regardless of which option you choose, one thing is guaranteed… Our casino and Juicy Stakes Poker promise a fun and rewarding experience for all players!
