Frequently Asked Questions

Real Money Games

What is the minimum buy-in?
The buy-in for ring games may vary. Click the Ring Games tab, to see the individual table stakes.

How do I know how much money is in the pot?
The amount of the pot is always shown at the center of the table. The total of the full pot and all current bets is shown in the upper left.

How do I bet in no-limit and pot-limit games?
When it is your turn, you may type the number you wish to bet in the bet box and hit return, or use the slider at the right of the table to set your wager. You cannot raise before it is your turn.

How can I cash my chips?
When you leave a table, your chips are automatically converted back to cash.

If I want to leave the game for a little while but not quit, can I do this? What happens to my money?
You can select "sitting out" (the button that looks like a "pause" button on a DVD player or a VCR) to take a break for a short period of time. When you are sitting out, there is no card or money play activity and you are not dealt a hand. When choosing to sit out, please be mindful of others who may be waiting for a place at the table.

If you sit out during a tournament, your chips will continue to be blinded off during play and you will continue to be dealt cards.

What happens to my money if I leave or get disconnected in the middle of a hand and don't make it back on time for my next turn?
If you are disconnected from the table, your hand will be folded. No additional bets will be placed for you.
