Zynga Poker Rules and Restrictions - Keep Your Account Active and Avoid Being Banned

In order to keep the game fair and safe for all users, we strictly enforce our Terms of Service

Remember: failure to follow Zynga rules, or Terms of Service, can get your account suspended, hacked or permanently banned! Please read the following list of PROHIBITED actions.


  • Use third party software, scripts, or bots, to access or play Zynga games in any way. (See below)
  • Attempt to get free chips by clicking links from unknown sources or people promising free chips - this will get your account phished or hacked.

  • Use profanity or language that discriminates or maliciously targets another individual in any way. This includes your profile picture.

  • Create more than one account to play poker from or store chips - all accounts will be banned! (See below)

  • Lose on purpose as a means of transferring chips - we can easily track this and you will be warned, have your chips taken, and banned! (See below)
  • Sell Chips! Under NO circumstances is anyone permitted to sell chips. 

  • Attempt to buy chips from ANYONE other than zynga - you may ONLY buy chips in-game via Zynga Secure Payment in the 'Buy Chips and Gold' screen or by redeeming a Game Card.

        See Terms of Service for complete set of rules!


You can gift chips to Poker Buddies using the 'send chips' tool. This tool is found by clicking on a buddy's picture at the table or by viewing their profile page. However, you are not allowed to send these gifts in exchange for money or money equivalent. Doing so will result in your accounts beings suspended and/or banned.


The only allowed method for transferring chips between users is by using the "send chips" tool. Losing hands on purpose at the table to send chips to a friend (or yourself on another account) is a violation of our Terms of Service and is aggressively enforced through account suspensions and/or banning.


You are allowed 1 account per social network. In addition, you cannot use multiple accounts to try to accumulate free chips (aka chip farming). This behavior is easily detectible and will result in all your accounts being suspended and/or banned.


Using scripts and manual processes to abusively accumulate free chips is not allowed and will result in your account(s) being suspended or banned.
