Frequently Asked Questions

Getting Started with GamesGrid Poker

What do I need in order to start playing poker?
GamesGrid is implemented through a software program that you download to your computer. You need to be able to download and install the GamesGrid client software. The client software enables you to connect to the GamesGrid server. If you do not have administrator permissions on your computer, please ensure that the Windows user profile you are using has permission to download and install software. You will also need a GamesGrid nickname and password to log in. See Creating a Nickname if you do not already have a GamesGrid nickname and password.

When downloading should I run from its current location or save? If I have to save, where do I save it?
Choose Open (or Run), to begin the download/installation. When the installation is complete, close the dialog box, and then locate the new file on your Desktop and double click it to play. If you choose to Save the file instead, we recommend saving it to a location where you can find it easily, such as the desktop. Once the download is complete, locate the file and double click it to begin installation.
