Zynga Poker can be a hard game to beat. Thankfully there are multiple ways to get free chips to boost your bankroll, and this article lists all the ways I know of getting free chips.

How to Get Free Chips Outside of the Game

There a few ways to get free chips outside of playing the game.

If you check the Zynga Poker Facebook page they occasionally post links you can click for free chips.

The page also sometimes post links that let you skip the first round of Shootout sit and go tournaments. While this reward doesn't directly give you free chips, it gives you a chance to win some.

Zynga sends out promotional emails that have links to free chips, and as long as you are willing to receive them this is a way to get free chips.

How to Get Free Chips Inside of the Game

Most of the ways to get free chips will be inside the game.

Remember your VIP tier as this is important when it comes to getting free chips. A higher VIP tier gets you more chips from gifts, and Lucky Bonus slot machine spins.

You get VIP points by buying chips, buying gold, and leveling up. The maximum level is 200 though, so if you don't buy chips, you can at best get to Emerald.

How to Get Free Chips from Friends

If you have multiple friends that play the game, you can also have them help you complete royal flushes. Completing these hands earns you extra casino gold.

You can also invite friends to get 1 million for they join and start playing poker.

How to Get Free Chips from the Mega Lucky Bonus Slot Machine

The easiest way to get free chips is to spin the Mega Lucky Bonus slot machine, and you get a free spin once every four hours.

If you spin once every day, you start a streak, and if you spin seven days in a row, you get a 100% bonus on your winnings.

This bonus also applies to spins you make with gold.

Watch Video Ads

In the mobile game, I occasionally get the opportunity to watch video ads for chips.

While you do not get a large number of chips from doing this, it adds up, and this is an easy method to use.

What Are Tickets and Gold Used For?

You can get free chips by spending tickets you earn from playing the game, completing challenges, and by playing in the poker leagues.

If you open the gold chest, you can get casino gold as well, and you can use casino gold on extra Lucky Bonus slot machine spins.

Some Ways to Get Chips No Longer Exist

There used to be extra ways to get chips while playing on the web browser version of the game. You could get extra chips by playing extra mini-games and unlocking achievements.

However recently Zynga changed the web version into the mobile version, so everything is the same now.

I am not sure why they did this, but I have some theories.

It is possible the mobile version was much more popular than the web browser version of the game. Maybe the developers of the game did not want to maintain two separate versions of the same game so merging them makes their job much easier.

Either way, there are still some free chips to be found.

There Is Plenty of Free Chips

You will not get rich of the free chips given to you, but if you desperately need them, they are there.
