    Facebook Poker Games - Power Blitz

    Playing poker on Facebook can be done with games such as Poker Blitz from Zynga the company that made Farmville. Poker Blitz is more of a casual poker game ad might not appeal to the hardcore poker players but it is still quite fun. You will start by setting up your avatar and then getting down to playing. The game has a nice tutorial to get you started. The games features different difficulty stages. So for example the tutor stage will be quite easy but then you will move up to Las Vegas or the Jersey Beach levels and the game will get increasingly more difficult to win. You can also open up mystery crates as you play for various rewards. Players can join with Facebook friends to win bigger chip payouts in the game. Poker Blitz isn’t for everyone but if you want to play a casual fun card game on Facebook then the game is worth playing just don’t expect a well rounded poker game.
