THE BEST POKER GAMES TO PLAY ONLINE
There are endless iterations of the classic poker game, so we’ve listed our all-time favorites below. If you’re keen to dive straight in, we’ve got Texas Hold‘em, Omaha, Crazy Pineapple, Jackpot Sit’n’Go Poker, Bounty Tournaments, Caribbean Poker and Surge Poker available to play online on Global Poker right now. So we just have one question for you… are you all in?
Undeniably the most popular poker game online. With Texas Hold’em, make the best poker hand you can using your 2 hole cards and the 5 community cards in Texas Hold‘em. It involves 4 rounds of play known as preflop, the flop, the turn and the river. Go for the Limit Hold‘em if you want to keep your stacks high a little longer. In Limit Hold‘em, there’s a cap on how much players can raise at any street with it increasing on the river. This is different to No Limit where players can push all their chips at any time!
Omaha Poker is similar to Texas Hold‘em, but with one key difference: after the blinds have been posted, with Omaha rules, each player is dealt four hole cards instead of two. So your starting hand is four cards, of which you may use only two as your hole cards in making your final five-card hand.
Crazy Pineapple is the wildly entertaining twist on Texas Hold’em. Some people have never heard of Crazy Pineapple, and Global Poker is changing that. The biggest difference between Crazy Pineapple and Texas Hold’em is that in Crazy Pineapple every player receives three hole cards, instead of two, so the chances of a better hand increase. The players then consider their hands by combining two out of their three hole cards and the three community cards on the table. This is where the tension mounts; after this betting round, each player discards one hole card, which could make or break your hand.
Looking for a poker game online with an adrenaline rush like no other? Look no further than our Jackpot Sit’n’Go Tournaments! Jackpot Sit’n’Go Tournaments are three-player poker games where each player starts with the same chip stack (500) and the prize pool is randomly determined at the start of the game. The winner of the game is the player left with all the chips.
A bounty poker game online has similar rules and gameplay as a regular game of Texas Hold‘em, but with one key difference, there is a bounty on everyone's head. For every player you knock out of the online bounty game, you receive a predetermined bonus as a reward. The more players you eliminate, the more you accumulate.
Caribbean Poker has its origins in five-card stud poker. That’s why you might hear it called ‘casino stud poker’. The rules were derived from five-card stud poker, but the key difference between Caribbean and standard poker is that in Caribbean you play against the house rather than against other players. That means there’s no need to bluff, or worry about the other players. That’s why it’s perfect for online games.
This poker game players are dealt seven cards each throughout the course of the hand in Seven Card Stud Hi/Lo poker. Though there are seven cards, only the best five-card hand possible for each player is used to name the winner.
Razz is another poker game variant in which the best Ace to Five low hand wins the pot at Showdown. Players are dealt seven cards throughout the course of the hand, but only the best five-card low hand possible for each poker player is used to determine the winner.
5 CARD DRAW
The 5 Card Draw is the classic game most people grew up playing. It’s considered the oldest form of poker and best introduction to the exciting world of poker.
Another form of draw poker, Badugi is where players need to make the best low hand of different suits from the four cards dealt. Since Badugi is different from the best high hand poker games, make sure to know the interesting rules before playing it.
H.O.R.S.E is a collection of games that mix up Hold‘em, Omaha, Razz, Seven Card Stud, Seven Card Stud, and Eight-or-Better. Playing H.O.R.S.E will allow you to prove how versatile a poker player is. Try out H.O.R.S.E to round out your skill and break the monotony of one poker game.
This poker game offers 8-Game Mix, which is the same rotation as H.O.R.S.E, but also includes a round of No Limit Hold‘em, Pot Limit Omaha and Deuce to Seven Triple Draw.
