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.

AOL is not a supported browser for Pogo. It may work...but you may have to adjust settings and Pogo won't troubleshoot if games don't work.

Have you tried another browser?

Thank you. Ctrl + Z worked. But now, with the new AOL Gold, the room will not open, says operating error. Also says Java not enabled but I am able to play all other games except card games.

Are you sure you were using Chrome to play High Stakes Poker? Because HSP is a Java game and Chrome hasn't support Java in 2 years.

I can reasonalbly say that the Java games will never be Flash games. Flash will be unsupported some time in 2020.
IE11 does work with Java. I've been playing High Stakes Poker, High Stakes Pool, Word Search Daily, and Quick Quack, along with a lot of other Java games that have Mix & Match Badges re-released. While I do use Pale Moon, I have the IE11 app for my Chrome browser. It work really good. (for me).

Same here. I cannot load this game and a few others. Have been on two different browsers and none of them work. Chrome does not support Java but they do support Flash Player, Firefox does not support Flash Player and now am trying Internet Explorer and it does not support either one. I can only play 4 games and for what I paid for was the entire game rooms, and I am not getting my money worth. I don't think I will subscribe for 1 year till they change these games to Flash player or none of the above.

Could you tell us what browser you are using and is your Java up to date?
Also, what games are you having the problem with?

I just finished up 6 of the new re-released Badges in High Stakes Poker on this and another account, using Firefox 52 ESR and Pale Moon and the game played beautifully.
I don't use Internet Explorer 11 for the very reason you're here, it doesn't like to work nicely.
