Players Can Now Purchase Play Money Chips at PokerStars

Players Can Now Purchase Play Money Chips at PokerStars 0001

There is more to online poker than high stakes battles between the best players on the planet, there is also a vibrant community who play for the love of the game at the play money tables.

The Play Money tables are usually frequented by players who reside in locations where real money online poker is not fully available – such as the United States of America – or by players who are testing the waters of this amazing game and do not want to put any of their hard earned cash at risk while they learn the intricacies of poker.

Although there is no actual money at stake, some of the games are fiercely fought and competition in the higher stakes play money games play much like games in a real money environment. Play Money cash games at the world’s biggest online poker site, PokerStars, start as low as 1 / 2 and increase all the way to 5M/10M.

Reaching these higher stakes games takes a lot of time and determination as players start with only 1,000 Play Money chips in their PokerStars accounts, although these can be reloaded up to three times per hour if they lose them in cash games or tournaments. The high stakes games may start to run more frequently in future after PokerStars made it possible purchase Play Money chips for real money.

The purchase of play money chips has been available since PokerStars launched its Facebook app earlier in 2013. Players using the PokerStars Facebook App can enjoy Play Money cash games – including Zoom Poker – sit & go and multi-table tournaments.
