Imagine having your own online Poker Club, for just you and your friends - where you can arrange your own private poker games whenever you want! It’s called Home Games. It’s free to use and it’s really easy to set up. Download the poker software then follow these simple steps to get started:
1) In the main lobby, select the ‘More’ menu then ‘Home Games’. If you’ve been invited to join a club, click ‘Join a Poker Club’; to start a new club, click ‘Create a Poker Club’.
2) Give your new club a name and invitation code (make sure not to include your personal password!). We’ll send you an email with your club details and ID number, which you can then share with your friends so they can join your club.
3) Your club will be added to the Home Games lobby in your client. Click on the ‘Club Lobby’ button. You can now accept new club members, schedule and register for games, and manage your club from the Club Lobby.
Your exclusive online Poker Club is completely free, and includes these key features:
Your Club Name must be unique and should contain between 8-30 characters, including spaces. It mustn’t be offensive, infringe on anyone’s rights or contain a URL or anyone else’s username (it can contain your own username, but this is not necessary). Club Names will be reviewed and won’t be displayed to other players until approved, after which they cannot be changed. You’ll receive an email approving or rejecting the Club Name within five days.
When creating an Invitation Code for your Club, remember that they must be between 8-16 characters, are case sensitive, must not contain your username, and must start with a letter and contain at least one number. Also, they must not start with the letters ‘tmp’.
Poker Clubs can have up to 501 members - if you need to increase this limit, please visit our Help Center to find the best way to contact us. You can create up to two Clubs and join up to 10. To see all the Clubs to which you belong, check out ‘My Poker Clubs’ in the Home Games tab of the lobby.
Both the Club Manager and Club Administrators can schedule tournaments and create games, but only the Club Manager can manage the Club. Use the ‘Grant Admin’ button in the ‘Manage Club’ tab to give players Club Administrator status.
When playing real money Home Games you’ll earn reward points just as you would in other real money games.
Home Games are about playing poker with people you know and trust, and for that reason members of a Poker Club can play at the same table or tournament in a Home Game even if they are on the same IP address or location. Also, chat moderation is generally not provided. However, we are just as serious about the security of Home Games as any other games - if you suspect improper behavior on the part of fellow Club members, please visit our Help Center to find the best way to contact us and we will investigate.
