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.

High Stakes Poker • Can't play my favorite games!

By Irisheyes323 » April 20th, 2016, 2:06 pm

Help!! I can not get into High stakes poker, or word search daily, 2 games which I have played for a long time and earning badges! Only had a few days to go to get another badge for word search, and *+*+P O O F+*+* I can't get into them anymore. I know it won't work with chrome, I have downloaded Firefox but that doesn't work either, tried IE and it starts to load, then says IE has found a problem and closes the window! I'm frustrated, worked hard to get all those state badges in word search and I'm missing my friends in poker!!

Have you cleared your browser's cache, history, temp files and cookies lately? When you do, make sure "Preserve Favorite Website Data" is left unchecked. Close your browser after that and restart your browser.

Also make sure your Java is the latest version: Java 8.73.

You could also try the Firefox browser to see if you have better results.

Is anyone having the same problem I am.

I am having a problem with several games (not all) that come up with the webpage that says:

Internet Explorer has stopped trying to restore this website. It appears that the website continues to have a problem.

The easiest and quickest way to win this badge is to follow the instructions already posted by HmSwtGrl. She even provided visuals.
For what ever reason, playing the Tournament Game Mode isn't giving credit. And, since this badge was from several months ago, I really doubt Pogo is going to do any troubleshooting for it. This is just my opinion.
Playing the Limited Games Mode allows you to get a JPS in only 4 winning hands. Playing the Bots allows you to use all the tokens you want since they don't use yours. Betting max and raising will ensure the bots will fold. And, the badge calls for you to play in No Limit Texas Poker. NOT High Stakes Poker.
Good Luck.


Thank you for clearing that up for me. I didn't quite understand what HmSwtGrl tried to say nor where to look at the visuals posted by her. I hardly ever play this game, so I'm not familiar with the possible settings. Now I know what to do on my next attempt :) Thanks again!
