GameColony has its new suite of non-Java games that are fully compatible with Macs and run on Google Chrome, Safari, FireFox web browsers.
Fully compatible games are:
- Backgammon
- Cribbage
-
Dominoes
- Gin Rummy
- Multiplayer Mahjong (Red Mahjong, Hong Kong, Riichi) and Mahjong Solitaire
-
Poker-Rush
- Rush-21
- Solitaire
- Pyramids
- Lines

Java applet-based games (such as canasta) currently exist with original Internet Explorer (IE) only.
IE can support Java applets but it is a very old interface that we can no longer recommend for the following reasons:
- For several years, IE browser is no longer supported by Microsoft and on Windows 10 it is temporarily provided (in a semi-hidden fashion) for convenience of old apps only
- stability of IE-based java applets with a new JDK from Oracle is highly questionable
- mainly due to licensing issues, all non-IE web browsers no longer support Java applets

We recommend using either Google Chrome ( google.com/chrome) or Mozilla Firefox ( firefox.com ) with our new non-Java interface (HTML5 interface)

At GameColony.com you can play games of skill only -- play for free or play for $prizes!. According to the statutes of most states in the United States, gambling is defined as: "risking something of value upon the outcome of a contest of chance". (Also see No Gambling!).   The skill (as opposed to chance) is predominant in games of skill. Playing games of skill for $prizes, therefore, has nothing to do with gambling as it is not a contest of chance -- the more skillful player will win far more often. The chance element of a 'gamble' is either insignificant or missing. When players compete in tournaments or games of skill for $prizes -- it is "competitive entertainment" rather then "gambling". The more skilled winner will always win more matches, tournaments and $prizes.
