I have fond memories playing this game as a child at family gatherings at my grandma’s house on her kitchen table. My kids now have fond memories playing it at their grandma’s house. Each player card has 5 rows of 5 different playing cards printed on it. It is similar to Bingo in that the dealer picks the card from a regular deck of Poker cards and calls it out. Each player then puts a chip on their card if they have it. The first person who gets 5 across, 5 up and down, or 5 diagonally gets a Pokeno and wins. In my grandmother’s version, we put three cups in the middle of the table and each player had to put a penny in each cup. The first player to place a chip on all 4 corners won the money in the first cup. The first player to place a chip in the middle won the money in the middle cup. The first player who got a Pokeno won the money in the third cup. A new rounded started after a Pokeno and each player had to put another penny in each cup so usually the 4 corners cup built up and was a big win for a little kid! 😊 The card that had the Ace of Spades in the center was my grandmother’s lucky card!
