Its a new era of social media and social games. Whether on FaceBook, Bebbo, Tagged, Hi5, iPhone or Android apps, or Myspace, playing card games, poker or casino (or even sports betting) is the thing to do. Since joining any of the old school poker or casino sites always felt a bit dodgy and you could never be comfortable giving out your credit card details.
FaceBook poker combines both the social element which is the base of this media with the thrill of poker. Zynga Facebook poker application is probably the most popular and famous one and has been around for over four years. It has the largest amount of FB poker players and has become a household name worldwide. Zynga also runs a FaceBook poker league with texas Holdem poker as the main game played. Most players choose either Zynga Poker, Poker + or Live Poker by Zynga. Players can choose between single poker games and group games which connect around the poker table players from all over the world.
Nevertheless, Zynga poker is not the only free Facebook poker available. Other popular poker applications include Poker Palace, Perfect Poker, Gambino Poker and Poker Deluxe – TexasHoldem as well as VNH poker. If you want join the Facebook Poker Community (no matter what app you prefer) you can always like the Poker Community Page.
So where’s the thrill in FB Poker?
Yes, its free and no, you don’t win thousands of Dollars in a game. Remember, its a social network. the question that many people ask is “where’s the excitement” and its a valid one as all online poker players want to win and collect more chips. This is where poker chips come into the pictures and you can read more about how to get them in Facebook poker chips. Just to give you a hint, you can buy chips from Zynga’s website or from their applications in the social networks and use them to play in the big Facebook poker league (of course there’s that “simple” way of actually winning them in the game).
There are sites like mom chips that offer poker chips but we recommend caution in order to avoid fraudulent activity and losing your account and chips as well as being banned from the application. Some sites offer all kinds of poker cheats with which you can add millions of chips to your player account. We don’t recommend any of these.
In case you’re not sure how to play Facebook or Zynga Texas Holdem poker you can read more in our how to play FaceBook poker section. There’s not much difference between playing real poker and online poker. Its a game of skill and some luck. Most of all its a game of nerves and as any experienced poker player will tell you, the tables can turn at any moment and it ain’t over till all cards are down and the winning is collected.
