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.

@Tammylyn: There are plenty of rooms to choose. Look underneath the game and click on the Chat Rooms tab. Scroll through that list and choose the room you want.

No rooms to choose from. My only option is 'play now' or 'play robots' when selecting 'play now' I end up in a room alone and no idea where. I updated my java and flash, so?

high stakes poker goes straight to one table. does not allow to chose the hall/room to choose level of bet. no idea what hall the one table is in.

First, your Flash is really outdated. Open the Control Panel can select Flash Player, Advanced tab and update now. That should take care of that.
Second, are you using the Choose a room? instead of the play now? That should take you to a room, select a table and the Table select should pop up. You can make changes then. ;)

The Lobby/Table Select is always on the screen...hidden behind the main game screen when you are playing. To return to it you have two options, minimize your game screen or use the Restore Down feature to minimize it only a little and move it over. Position your Lobby so you can see it at all times. That way you don't have to close out completely.
And, of course the X out like Ken suggested will take you back to the Lobby when you're done playing at that table.

Just click on the "X" on the bottom of the left of screen and you can exit that room. Then go back to your lobby and select a different room.

I have been having the exact same problem and I have tried 3 different browsers, IE, Chrome and Firefox.
When I used to go play HSP the line up of available rooms was colored and now it is just white like the free
game rooms. Is this something to do with "embedding" the games? You can't change rooms after you choose a table
and decide to leave, you have to close out the entire page and POGO closes and then you have to start from scratch.

Game is loading like I am a non-member - then play 4 hands and goes to a commercial/wait period. Just not loading right even if you skip the player/robot buttons and pick a room!!! Then when you leave room takes you all the way out of Pogo!! Need a serious fix!

Are you sure it disappears and just isn't hiding by the game board screen?

I pick a room, then a table, and hit play. Then nothing. I usually just see a grey box - or if the game finally loads, I see my name at the table, but no game screen pops up. It all started when they changed over to the pop up way of playing this game. How can this be fixed? I can get into a game - but usually takes 10-15 tries and waiting, waiting
