Poker is a card game for up to four players. The object of draw poker is to have the highest ranking hand at the end of two betting rounds. The player with the highest hand wins all of the tokens that have been placed in the pot.

At the start of this free online classic poker game, players are dealt five cards. There is then one round of betting, in which players can place new bets, match the current bet (known as "calling"), raise the amount of the current bet, or stop betting and drop out of the hand (known as "folding").

Once all High Stakes Poker players have either bet the same amount of tokens or folded, all players remaining in the game have an opportunity to discard unwanted cards from their hand and draw new ones in their place.

After all players are done discarding unwanted cards and drawing new ones, there is a second round of betting that works much like the first round, except that betting increments are doubled.

Once this second round of betting is over, all players who are left in the game reveal their hands. The player with the highest ranked hand wins all the money that is left in the pot.

When you win a hand, one gold coin lights up under your cards. If you can light up all four coins, you will receive a Jackpot spin!

You're going to be winning and losing real tokens when you play any of the "Roller" rooms! We recommend you practice first by playing in one of the Just For Fun rooms until you're comfortable with the game and the betting process.

Here are some tips and tricks to help you enjoy a game of free online classic poker with your friends.

At the beginning of the High Stakes Poker game, the dealer has the option to decide if 2s are wild.

The dealer is presented with a dialogue box that asks, "Would you like to make 2s wild?" along with a "Yes" and "No" button. Selecting yes or no will or will not make 2s wild for the duration of that hand.

The dialogue box also contains a checkbox that says, "Don't show me this again." If you check this box, the game will take your answer and use that for all future hands while you are sitting at this table. For example, checking this box and then selecting "Yes" will make 2s wild for any future hand in which you are the dealer.

You cannot make any other card wild besides 2s.

Thank you for posting your system info. I wish I could offer a suggestion, but, I know nothing about Mac's. If some other member does, maybe they can offer something. Otherwise, you might want to try posting that info and your problem in Pogo Answer HQ. Use the Help link and then click on Visit Answer HQ.

What operating system are you using? What browser are you using? What version of Java do you have installed? All this information would be necessary if someone is to offer a solution.
Please use this link and copy the information back here. Please do not change/alter/or add anything, even if you don't think it is right. Thanks.

Auntroey, when you post here you are posting to other members, not to Pogo staff.

All we can do is offer suggestions.

Sometimes it's best to uninstall Java and then do an offline installation.

Here is how to do that:

Uninstall any and all Java you now have.
Restart your computer
Go to the Java website and download and save Java but don't install it yet.
** Make sure you choose the second one on the list: Windows Offline (not Windows Offline 64 bit).
Close your browser
Go to your Downloads folder and click to Run/Install
Restart your computer.

None of the java games seem to be working....either they don't load at all (table poker games) or when they do it takes almost a minute to be able to play.

tried changing resolution to what you said...did not work
the table card games ie High Stakes/Omaha/Texas Hold'em do not load....the tables come up, but I cannot play
haven't finished checking the rest of Java games...so far it seems that any games generated by Java (other than the table card games) take a very very long time to load.....

Haven't tried the other card games...have noticed that when I try to play other games that use Java...they load really very slow. I will try everything that you suggest and will list the games and post it...thanks
