Thailand has become the top spot in Asia for professional online poker players to spend their time, especially during the European/US winter. The reason is simple and easy; low cost of living and being able to live at some of the most beautiful places on earth. Over the past few years, the infrastructure is one of the best in South East Asia; the food is great, and there are tons of places to enjoy life – like at the beach playing poker online. The quality of the internet has improved a lot and is now close to or in some cases, even BETTER than western standards.

As the online poker world is constantly changing, so are the sites/rooms where one can be playing best based on location. For this reason, this article provides an actual selection of the best poker sites to play while staying/living in Thailand.

 

 

Thailand Poker Sites FAQs

Is it legal to play online poker in Thailand?

Although gambling is illegal in Thailand, there hasn’t been a case yet where a poker player has had a problem playing online. However, for those who do wish to play online poker, special care is advised. Using a Thai Credit Card for making deposits is definitely a no-go. Solutions like Entropay/Skrill/Neteller/Bitcoin are recommended.

Regulated Poker Sites VS Unregulated Poker Sites

The poker sites themselves seem to have put Thailand on their whitelist of legal online poker countries. As a result, all the major online rooms are available in Thailand: PokerStars, iPoker, America’s Cardroom and many others work. Playing on these sites using a Thai IP-address/wifi provider is not a problem.

What are the Best Sites to Play Online Poker in Thailand?

Players are looking for different experiences. Some will favor great software over softer games. Cash Games players and tournaments players also have different needs.

Moreover, in order to be able to maximize all promotions offered by the different sites, players must be willing to open an account on several clients.

For all of these reasons recommending only one site would be a mistake. We prefer to list the pros and cons of each option currently available to US players in this article.

The ignition/bovada network has been operative now for quite some time. It’s a mix of US / Canadian / South-American and Asian players.

This is our number 1 choice for Thailand at the moment and for a reason: Games are GOOD!
