Poker was popular 20 years ago. It was played mostly at home on kitchen tables and in scattered casinos. Poker has seen rapid growth over the past few decades. Now, online poker is wildly popular.
Poker’s meteoric rise began in the 1970s when poker tournaments like The World Poker Tour and The World Series Of Poker started televising their final tables. Real poker players playing for millions of dollars on television made the game more interesting to players.
