At Pokertropolis we allow a bet and 3 raises per betting round at ring poker game tables and 1 bet and 5 raises on heads-up poker tables.
The betting order begins with the player clockwise from the dealer button, and proceeds in a clockwise manner around the table.
The rake is money removed from each pot by the house. Our variable rake structure is 5% of the pot size. This rake is used to pay the house, as the winnings go to individual players. Click here to see our rake schedule.
You may sit out for 15 minutes at a time when there are one or more active players (players that are not sitting out) at your table. If you sit out for more than 15 minutes with one or more active players at your table Pokertropolis will automatically remove you from the table.
You may only wager with the chips you have on the table prior to the start of a hand, and only obtain additional chips in between hands. Should you run out of chips during a hand, you will automatically be considered "All In" regardless of whether you have additional funds in your account.
The minimum buy-in is 10 times the small bet. This means you need $100 to enter the $10-$20 poker game, $50 to enter the $5-$10 poker game and $20 to enter the $2-$4 poker game.
Poker is a social game, and Pokertropolis lets players socialize at the table via the chat feature. However, there are a few rules that must be observed by all members:
• All chatting must be in English. No exceptions.
Please see the All-In section for information on how Pokertropolis handles All-Ins caused by time-outs and/or connection problems. Click here to learn more about All-ins.
In poker games where there are blinds, players are required to post the Big Blind prior to their first hand, and must post the small blind and big blind once per round. Should you miss your blinds turn, you must post the equivalent upon reentry of the game. Players that attempt to avoid their blinds by jumping in and out of the game may lose their playing privileges. Review
