No-Download: Poker Sites

Did You Know... the internet has many unreliable & unlicensed online poker sites and some won't pay when you win?

On this site you will find only the most reliable fully-licensed online poker sites with fair rules and secure payments. Check our reviews for more information about each site. For your safety, we only list poker sites with operating licenses issued by the UK Gambling Commission.

These sites all offer an instant-play option, requiring no download. There are many reasons why people sometimes prefer no-download poker, for example if you’re using a Mac or Linux computer then instant-play is very helpful since most poker software is only for Windows.

Another popular reason to use no-download sites is because many people like to test the site for a while without needing to install any new software. That’s fine, but if you do find a site that you like then we recommend that you install the software eventually if possible. That’s because the downloadable version of the games is usually more feature-rich than the no-download version. You’ll get the full experience by installing the software, and it usually runs more smoothly too.
