The definition of the term “home game” can vary. In general, a “home game” is a poker game that takes place in a private setting and in which no one person stands to financially benefit.
It’s very casual – you have chips, beer and everybody takes their turn as the dealer. This is the very definition of a “home game”.
However, here is where the definition of a “home game” starts to get murky.

Let’s say that one of your friends has turned his basement in a mini-poker room. There are four poker tables, and all of the games are raked with professional dealers dealing the hands.
Sure, this game is taking place in a private setting (your friend’s home), but the fact that your friend is making money off of the game would, in most jurisdictions, make the game much more than just a standard “home game”. If there is a single person that stands to make a financial gain from the playing of the game, most jurisdictions will treat it as more than just a standard “home game”.
In short – a game with you and a couple of your buddies qualifies as a “home game”. If the game is run by someone who stands to profit from the playing of the game, you are looking at more than just a “home game”.
