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.

I really never had problems while others couldn't get into Pogo. Recently there was some kind of an upgrade and thinking it was my browser, didn't really want to change, I called my cable company to blame them and she the tech asked what I was trying to do. So assuming she didn't have any idea about me wanting to play my Pogo games, it turned out she also is a member and set me up with google chrome just for pogo games. It took very little to learn, not to savvy with these things, what to do with it and its works wonderfully. Don't even have to play with sizes of page just leave it on 100%.

Just sharing!!

@sisylala: The reason you are having trouble with the games is due to you not having Java installed or enabled in your browser. You need to install Java if you want to play the Java based games. The latest version is Java 7.51.

A second cause of your problem is that you are using IE 11 which was really intended for (and works better with) Windows 8. Going back to IE 10 or IE 9 will solve that problem.

I have noticed this issue in The Down and Dirty room for a couple of days. The game will freeze for about 1 min. The game screen is blank during this time.
