Africa Poker Information

Monday Nov 24th, 2014

As is the case with the rest of the planet, poker fever has spread to Africa as well. In February of 2006, Africa's first Poker Millionaire was created when Christopher Convery won the 4th All Africa Poker Series and received a Million Rand prize. Ninety of Africa's poker players competed in this Texas Hold 'Em tournament.

Coming up in May of 2006, the 5th All African Poker Series will take place with the top five players winning a seat into the World Championship Poker game. The World Championship Poker Tournament takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada in the United States.

With the popularity of poker taking such an upward flight worldwide, it only seems logical that Africa would have a bit of the action too. There are many casinos in Africa, most of which offer a poker table or two.

In all of the countries in Africa currently playing poker, South Africa seems to be the poker hotbed. Egypt for a poker player comes in second place being a fine place to play poker as well. Poker players should be able to find a poker game in Africa with little or no difficulty.

Home poker games are possible and you may use our Home Games Forum located in our Gambling Forum. Post questions about existing home games or try to organize your own home poker game. The menu on your left will lead you to such places as our Poker Forum and Poker News. You can find articles on How to Play Poker, the History of Poker as well as a Poker Dictionary.
