You start off with some free money from Facebook which you can gamble and win or lose. You can then earn more Facebook poker chips by taking up special offers or adding other applications to your profile. At the moment Facebook is running a promotion where you can earn $1,000 free Facebook poker chips every day just by logging on to the application, you can also earn even more free Facebook poker chips by recommending the application to your friends. If you lose all of your Facebook poker chips you will have to either take up offers and promotions to replenish your stocks or you can actually buy more chips from internet traders. This has sparked a new industry with people winning and selling poker chips to other players.
If you are really good at poker you could make yourself some money by selling your own chips. So why do people pay real money for virtual Facebook poker chips? Well its human nature to be competitive and the more Facebook poker chips you have the more advanced tables you can play on. There are elite tables which are only open to players with lots of chips and where the minimum stakes are as high as $500k. For advanced poker players who have lost all their chips on a bad hand it can be really frustrating to try to build up their bank roll again by playing rookie players in the lower tables, they want to be right back up there playing against their friends and poker players of a similar skill level. These people are willing to fork out real cash to cut through the lower tables and get back to their elite games.
