    You can win play chips fairly easy.. you start with 1k and win a few tournaments = 1mil

    But i don´t wanna play. I know that the normal ITM rate at onlinepoker is about 10-30%. Unless you have a bunch of final tables in these tournaments, it easily can take 1-3weeks to get the 1 mil. So it´s not rentable to get 16$ for 1-3 weeks of playing.

    There should be an easier way.

    You're right.. I just don't know of any other method to get play chips other than playing. I don't think flipping them would be very profitable unless you had a cheap source?

    Then again I've seen people win 13M play chips in one day, maybe I'll give a crack at it and see what I can do with a couple hours of play.

    I've made 400k play chips in about 3 hours and I was lucky, then lost em all, so I think is hard to make millions and become profitable for your invested time.. better become an affiliate and find ingenious ways to promote them.

    I used to sell full tilt play chips back in the day. I had well over 100 million chips at one point. It was so easy (for me at least) to build up play chips fairly fast and then playing 25k/50k cash games with 10 million chip buy ins and then felting the donks who would try and play at that level with their whole bankroll.

    There actually is a market if you can find good buyers.

    I stopped doing it after a while when I realized that full tilt was banning people for doing this so it wasn't worth it for me anymore as I also played a lot of real money games there.

    So yeah if anyone is looking to build up a little poker bankroll this is a good way to go. Just be careful when you make your deals so you don't get banned.

    I do this. Have my own site.. its nice cause i have my own connect to get them really cheap. so most sites offer them for 10-16 per mil where i can let them go for like 5 or less. its profitable if u establish a nice site and get alot of repeat customers. can actually live off of it, just as long as ps stays up and the chips hold their value

    One reason ppl used to buy them was to play for fun.. and if they ended up winning, they cud resell them and get their money back. another reason is because some people prefer not to play for real money... and they also cant win enough 'fake chips' to play on the big boy tables where the actual fun is at. once u run out of your free 1000 chips refills u have to wait another hour to get more from the dealer. so they will buy millions of chips at a time and play and not have to worry. theyre usually older ppl who are retired or work at home and can afford to buy them.. and parts of pstars is a community where 100 ppl know eachother and play everyday with eachother for fun. guess its a hobby. for me it used to be a hobby now i just provide to them and make the $$ lol. suckers. jk.
