All Online Play
In recent years, we’ve moved away from downloadable apps to all online play at 247Games.com. This course of action is twofold as it allows us to better maintain our games for our audience as well as adhere to the latest web and device standards. All of our online games are 100% free, with no sign-in, and can be played on any of your devices using your favorite web browser.

Why do we have ads?
We are a small, independent gaming studio. We work with various advertisers to keep the lights on and our employees happy, so that we can continue to provide 100% free games for our audience. We are constantly evolving, and will continue to review ad formats that have the least impact on gameplay.

Ad Selection
We do not personally select the advertisements. Displayed ads are typically based on internet and device usage. You can, however, adjust your web browser’s ad settings. For example, in Google Chrome, you can control the ads that you see by adjusting the browser’s Ad Personalization Settings.

Spades: Nil bids and sandbags
