Pogo.com is an online free gaming website where you can play and join numerous games. Although this website is free to visit, you still find it annoying sometimes due to the advertising sponsorships, meaning you have to watch short ads during the game. Therefore, you are highly recommended to sign up for Club Pogo which is known as a subscription service. Once signing up for this, you will get lots of advantages and you are eligible to omit the advertisements.
All of the games at Pogo.com will be run in a browser supported by Java-plugin or Flash. With the games that are played in a “room”, the players are able to engage in that room and freely send their chats to each other.
When you play many games here, you will have a chance to obtain lots of prizes and a bunch of tokens. The tokens aren’t utilized in sweepstakes drawings anymore as of December 2010. But you can still put some bets of tokens on several games, like Texas Hold’em Poker, or High Stakes poker. About the cash and other merchandise awards, the US and Canadian citizens can access to them, only except the citizens in Quebec.
Besides free online games, the players can obtain some downloaded games from Pogo too. Most of the downloaded games are deluxe or “to go” versions of games that are already launched. You can purchase them, and join them offline. Several downloadable games contain some tokens and chat function, and they are just the same as the original ones.
Besides the website, you can gain an access to Pogo games via following platforms:
