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.

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. If you play the Facebook game, you can spend casino gold to play scratchers and Blackjack. I recommend using the gold on the mobile application for extra Lucky Bonus slot machine spins as the spins are cheaper there.

How to Get Free Chips by Playing on the Web Browser Game

There are also some extra ways to get free chips, but these methods require playing on the Facebook browser version of the game. When you are playing at tables, a Hi-Lo game will appear over the chat area sometimes, and playing this game is a way to earn a few extra chips by playing a simple mini-game. You pick if you think the next card will be higher or lower than the current card shown, and if you are right, you win and get to keep playing.

What Is the Poker Genius Mini Game?

The poker genius minigame is a fun way to get a few chips every day. This mini-game teaches you poker odds as you try to pick what hand has the best chances of winning. You are shown three poker hands to pick from. You start by first picking what hand you think has the best odds of winning preflop, then you pick what card has the best chance to win on the flop and turn cards. Lastly, you pick the hand that wins on the river. Since this game gives very little chips, I use it to practice poker odds mostly.

How to Get Chips from Completing Achievements

You can also complete collections on your profile. You get items by sending and receiving them from friends, and you need to have multiple friends who play the game for this to really work.

How to Get Chips from the Clubhouse

Lastly, if you play enough poker to get into the Clubhouse, you get entered into sweepstakes that you could win for a very nice payout in chips. While winning the sweepstakes may be unlikely there is always a chance!
