Once registration is complete, you will receive gaming tokens so you can join our Poker Online games.
There are two main types of online poker games: cash games and tournaments. Cash games are a type of classic games that you can join or leave at any time. Players can choose how much real or virtual money (i.e. available funds) they want to bring to the table. If they lose all their chips (and still have them in reserve), they can add extra chips or pay the table entry fee again.
Tournaments start at a specific time or after the registration of a certain number of players and usually require a one-time entrance fee. Players who lose all chips in the tournament are eliminated until only one winner remains. The combined prize pool, consisting of the players’ entrance fees, is divided among the players who stay in the game the longest. The winner receives the largest share.
If you want to try our free games, open the program and select the “Game Money” option. Then simply select the desired game. If you run out of chips, sit at the cash game table and you will receive extra chips for free.
