Zynga Poker and Watches

In this guide, I am going to explain how to collect Zynga Poker watches. I will also explain why you would want to collect watches.

What Are the Watches in Zynga Poker?

Watches are a collectible you can find by playing poker often.

People see the current watch you are wearing next to your player avatar at the poker table.

This is the menu that you click on to see watch information in "Zynga Poker." You can also see your progress towards collecting the current watch chip.

Event Watches

In addition to the normal list of watches, the game frequently has event watches.

You have a limited time to earn these watches, and you have to get them fast. These watches normally give fewer rewards. But they are fun to show you play the game often.

Why Collect Watches?

This Is a Way to Show off Your Poker Skills

The watches are quite hard to get. You need to play a lot of poker and win many hands.

So if somebody has one of the harder to get watches, you can be sure they can win hands playing poker consistently.

This is also a fun way to show off. You also get to select between two watch colors to wear.

I love to show off how good at poker I am. I know some people don't care, but it makes me happy.

Collecting the Watches and Watch Chips Gives You Free Poker Chips

Even if you don't like to show off, there are still reasons to collect the watches.

You get a decent amount of chips from collecting the watch chips and watches. Even at the point where I have almost 100 billion chips, these bonuses still are somewhat nice.

How to Collect Watches

To collect the watches, you need to collect poker chips in a collection.

You collect these chips by getting watch points, and you get watch points by winning hands.

Once you collect all the chips in the current collection, you get to wear that watch while playing poker.

This is where you see how many watch points you will earn. You get different points for playing at higher poker stakes.

How to Collect Watch Points Faster

Win Many Hands

You need to win a lot of hands! This is the only way to get watch points.

You get more watch points from playing higher stakes. When selecting your stakes, the game shows you what watch points multiplier you receive.

Be careful, though! You don't want to lose every chip you have chasing after watches.

Use Charge!

Charge is a way to earn more watch points by staying on poker tables longer. The longer you stay on tables, the more watch points you get.

It seems Zynga copied a page out of the Playtika WSOP playbook. This feature reminds me of how you earn bracelet points there.

You can only earn charge on certain stakes. So be sure to check before you start playing.

Help! Collecting Watches Is Taking Forever!

There is no quick fix.

Nothing that doesn't involve collusion anyway. I won't talk about such methods in this guide because I don't want to support cheating.

You really do have to win many hands, and it will take quite a while for most people.
