Goodgame Poker FAQ

  1. I don’t know how to play Texas Hold ‘em poker. Is there a tutorial?
    Yes. The first time you play the game, you’ll be prompted to complete the tutorial. If you skipped it, you can access it again at any time by clicking the tutorial icon under the question mark on the toolbar. If you need more help or a refresher on the rules, double-click the question mark to access the help page.
  2. When do the tournaments start?
    Tournaments start daily at 2:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m., 4:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. (CET).
  3. What happens if I signed up for a tournament, but am running late to join it?
    Your avatar will still participate in the tournament. It will appear grey to the other players and will automatically fold every round until you join the table or run out of chips.
  4. What are boosters and how do I use them?
    Boosters are available in small (S) or large (L) sizes and increase the amount of chips or XP that are added to your totals when you win a hand of poker. Boosters are automatically activated and decrease in potency after each round of play. The rate at which the booster’s effect wears off depends on the amount of chips or XP won.
  5. Why is there a table fee?
    This keeps players from “blind hopping”—manually standing up and sitting back down to avoid paying the small or big blind.
  6. How can I see if my friends are online?
    Check your friend list located at the bottom of the screen in the lobby. If your friends are online, there will be a green dot next to their names. If they have a red dot next to their names, it means they’re offline. If you are seated at a table, you can also check your online friends by clicking the friends icon at the bottom left of the screen.
  7. What do the coloured dots next to the table names mean?
    Every player gets a certain amount of XP per played hand, which increases in proportion with the amount of the table blinds. Even players who don’t win a hand get XP from participating in the game. The amount of XP a player receives depends both on their total chips and the following percentages, indicated by a coloured dot next to the table name:
    Green: You get 100% of the regular XP per played hand.
    Yellow: You get 50% of the regular XP per played hand.
    Red: You get 1 XP per played hand.
  8. What are AP and TP?
    Collect AP (Achievement Points) and TP (Tournament Points) to boost your ranking. Earn AP by completing requirements for in-game achievements and TP by participating in tournaments. The higher you place in a tournament, the more TP you’ll be awarded.
  9. How do I access the forum?
    To access the forum, click the speech bubble on the right side of the toolbar. A new browser window will open and automatically log you into the forum using your username and password.
