It shouldn't matter which OS you're using nowadays i'd think for online poker, but I found this if you're looking to install a poker game on your system:

G'day @bgduane and welcome to linux.org :)

I am moving this Thread to our new Gaming Section, where it may draw more attention.

Cheers

I play online poker too and unfortunately most poker clients won't work on Linux, the only one I managed to get working using wine was Poker Stars but I don't play there anymore. You might try playing using the flash client right from the browser https://www.888poker.com/ click on instant play and if you're lucky you could start playing, if you receive some message like ooops! browser not supported or something like that then you'll need to install some user agent switcher plugin in your browser https://chrome.google.com/webstore/...-for-c/djflhoibgkdhkhhcedjiklpkjnoahfmg?hl=en for chrome/chromium and https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/user-agent-switcher-revived/ for firefox. This one https://poker.tigergaming.com/ works just fine and site's quite good. There are many other sites you can "instant-play" but no desktop client since almost every single one is a .exe file. Guess they don't think Linux users have money to play Poker lol Also, you could create a Windows virtual machine using virtualbox and install the poker clients there, I do that too and it works better than using wine or play on Linux.

Hope this helps! :)

Hey, there are a lot of websites, where you can actually gamble using a Linux. Personally I play on clubvip777.com , and everything works fine. There were some problems, but the website programmers have changed settings and now everything works fine, without interruptions, and it is just the same thing as on other platforms. Hope you will manage to fix your problem, and you will play soon.

A thailand gambling website? Though related, gambling and poker are not the same thing, but guess that's another topic for another forum.

Online poker is now available on a variety of operating systems, but you need to understand that there are many scams in online poker, so you need to be very careful about where you play.
Via web browser? Yes and no. Poker 888 used to work this way but it doesn't anymore, I get "ooops! We don't support this device" or something like that. Most installers are either .exe or .dmg no .deb nor .rpm not even a .tar.gz and most of the .exe won't work in wine, if you want to "play poker in Linux" you need to:
1. Use something like VBox or VMware, create a Windows VM and install the poker clients there and deal with the occasional lag.
2. Dual boot Windows-Linux and get full-native support. This sadly is the best option; apps will work faster and better: no lags.
Hmmm... gues nº 2 isn't really playing poker in Linux :rolleyes:

I recently started dual booting again because of work, thus I took the opportunity and installed a few poker clients and as much as it pains me to admit, you can't really play poker in Linux, you need windows, I mean, if it's not just a hobby but rather a business for you. If you play just for fun, then Linux it's fine, but if poker is a business for you, then you need windows, otherwise you'll waste money and time.
