Video poker with friends

any recommendations on something that lets you play poker with specific people with no charge? Ideally with video on a laptop?

Do you have to have a balance to use pokerstars for example? If you use in conjunction with zoom, isn’t there a 40 minute limit on zoom?

We are using poker stars home games. Its PC or mac only. We use the play money and settle up the real thing outside of the game. For the videoconferencing we are using Discord. Both of these are free to use.

There is a learning curve, so if you are the one putting it together do a few trial runs, explain how to keep topping up free money in poker stars (for buyins), and how to preregister for a game. You can also play for real money with poker stars but i cannot comment on that.

Lastly the game moves super fast and there is no pause so if your crew is not used to online poker it will be an adjustment.

Hey OP, I see that you asked for computer/web video poker, but a great option for iOS or Android poker is an app called Pokerface

We've been using it to video chat and play poker together in one app for free and is a lot of fun so far!
