Here is a quick guide to get you familiar with the platform. You can also jump right into things by heading to the Games Lobby!
Spoker combines the thrill of fantasy sports with the format of classic card games. There are over 50 variations of games to play with new sports and game types on the way!
1. The Cash Games Lobby
Here you will find all the game types and sports Spoker currently has to offer. If you are unfamililar with any type of game on the site, you can find tutorials under the game type selection. Games are made up of 3 key components:
All games consist of a table of 9 players and take roughly 4-5 minutes to play once the table has filled. Practice and Rewind games score immediately, and Live games score after the live game event completes.
For more info on how each game type plays, check out the tutorials and rules section in the Cash Games Lobby.

3. My Games/ Leaderboard
Located at either the top of Cash Games Lobby or Tournaments pages, you will find the current games you are playing in a neat and organized table. You can filter the table to find whatever game you are looking for. When waiting for live games to score, it will also indicate how well you are currently doing by changing the color of the row.
When a game shows 9/9 and turns black (the circle on laptops and stripe on phones), this means that the drafting process of teams is either about to start or is in progress. The 💰 icon will show instead for games that finalized and you won money!
If a LIVE contest in the SHOWDOWN lobby does not fill 15 minutes before the live sporting event begins, this game will NOT run and all players who signed up for the contest are refunded.
The Leaderboard lobby provides constantly updated information on what the payouts are for the next Leaderboard Final Table and also the Showdown Daily Top 10
A percentage of entry fees from all Cash Games Lobby and Showdown contests are set aside for top performers that are tracked on leaderboards. To learn more, check out the Leaderboard Tournament.
