Welcome to Hocus Poker
Hocus Poker is another of our retro free games. This one was for a competition in PC Plus Magazine many years ago. We can't quite remember what the aim of the competition was, but Kirsty managed to devise this fun java game - and actually won!
We've kept it part of Loquax simply because of this and we do love a bit of nostalgia. Hocus Poker was also one of the reasons why we became a gambling portal - it ranked well for 'poker' and that took us along the road into promoting casino, bingo and other gaming products.
A fun three card poker game for spooks.
