The New Zynga Poker is Coming!

Dear Poker Fans,

First I want to thank each and every one of you for playing Zynga Poker. Whether you're new to the game or have played with us over the years, it has been a true pleasure and privilege for all of us at Zynga Poker to serve the world's greatest poker community. Our entire team has a deep passion for the game of Poker but it's you, our players, who inspire and drive us to deliver the best social poker playing experience possible.

I'm thrilled to introduce and announce the all new Zynga Poker coming soon to phone, tablet, and Facebook. This new update takes Zynga Poker to a whole new level and we can't wait to see you playing it. Our goal was to create the most modern immersive poker experience possible and this is just the beginning! When you play this new version of Zynga Poker you'll notice things like rich animation, visual effects and sounds that bring the game to life more than ever before. Sitting at the table is a whole new experience with smarter betting controls, large hole cards, improved player pictures and a fully redesigned poker table and environment. To make things more exciting we're using chips that are fun to interact with (and even touch on a mobile device!) when you want to raise or go all-in. If that's not enough we're making it faster and easier to get to the table you want and giving you the ability to change your settings right in our lobby or at the table. The new Zynga Poker gives you more control, more fun, and the poker game you want when you want it.

You're probably wondering, "So when do I get to play!?" Over the coming weeks we're giving people the opportunity to participate in an exclusive first look of the new Zynga Poker. Once again, this is just the beginning of many big things we have in store for our players throughout 2014. We can't wait to make the best game in the world even better for the world's greatest poker community. 

Cheers,

Nick, Creative Director

Zynga Poker Security Tips!

Hey Zynga Poker Players! 

The Zynga Poker team always wants our players to feel secure when playing our game. That's why we are going to give you a few tips on how to keep your account and chips safe. 

 

Tip #1: Do not have the same password for your e-mail and Facebook account.

  • This is a great tip for not just Facebook and e-mail but for any online account you may have open. Switch up your passwords!

Tip #2: Beware of sites asking for your personal information in exchange for "Free Chips." 

  • Remember the old rule, "If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is." 

Tip #3: Zynga does not solicit or advertise via the Chat function at a table. 

  • Be weary of people posting links or trying to sell you chips in the chat. If they say they are selling chips from Zynga, it is not true. 
  • Here is an example of what a scam chat may look like: 
Chat_scam

Tip #4: Do not share your account information with anyone! 

  • Keep all your information private. 

Tip #5: Check your Facebook Security Settings.

  • Facebook provides you with various tools to protect your account. Here's how to access them: 
    • Go to "Account Settings" from the drop down on your Facebook account. 
    • Then click on "Security."

Blackjack is Here in Zynga Poker!

Hello Poker Fans! 

We're excited to announce that today we released an all new Blackjack mini-game for you all to enjoy and earn yourselves some extra chips. 
You should receive a pop-up in game showing off the mini-game. 
If you don't, the game can be accessed via the side navigation on the left side of your game. 
Once you open it up you'll see something like this:

Blackjackstart


As shown in the above screenshot, you have three available reward tiers to shoot for ranging from a max of 11m to 34m chips!

Once you make a choice you'll see something like this:

Blackjack1


The dealer will deal out the cards, giving you the choice to 'Stand' or 'Hit'

Rules of Blackjack: The object of the blackjack game is to accumulate cards with point totals as close to 21 without going over 21. 
Every time you 'Hit' the dealer will put down a new card for each player that adds to the total scores. 
Face cards (Jacks, Queens and Kings) are worth 10 points. 
Aces are worth 1 or 11 - whichever the game chooses is best for your hand. Other cards are represented by their number. 
If the player and the dealer tie, it is called a push and no one wins (allowing you to redraw the hand at no additional cost). 
Ace and 10 (Blackjack) on the first two cards dealt is an automatic player win, unless the dealer happens to tie. 
A player may stand, choose to keep their cards and not ask for more, at any time to hold the point total already accumulated.

The dealer will never hit if its first 2 cards are at 17. In other words, as it says on the table, the dealer stands at 17.

With the rules under our belts, lets go ahead and hit!

Blackjackwin


Looks like I won the first hand 20 to 17! As you can see at the top of this screenshot, one win puts one notch on the progress bar. 
Continue to play to reach the milestones shown on your progress bar. 
If you lose, you'll be given the option to either start over or continue the game for a modest gold fee. 
When reaching any of the milestones on the progress bar, you'll be given the option to secure what you've won and step out, 
or risk it all by pressing on. 
Choose wisely!

Blackjackend


Keep playing for chance to win the 34m!

"Hit me!"

Hi-Lo Mini Game!

This week we released a brand new spin on our beloved ‘Hi-Lo Mini Game’, and we feel that the feature is smoother, cleaner, and more enjoyable for you guys than ever before. On top of that, it’s another opportunity for you guys to earn yourself some free chips every day! Who can say no to that, right? 

To access the new mini game, go ahead and join a standard table first to get started. You don’t have to sit at the table quite yet. Instead, go ahead and scroll down to the new ‘Hi-Lo’ box down in the bottom left corner of your screen as shown in the screenshot below.



See where I have that red circle drawn out? Go ahead and click there to maximize your Hi-Lo window into view. Your Hi-Lo box will now look something like this:



Select a poker friend you want to play with using the blue left and right arrows at the bottom. Once a suitable opponent is found, your move can begin. The game will display a card for you on the left side. Your goal is to guess whether or not you think the next card drawn is going to be higher or lower than that card. Click the yellow up arrow for higher, and the down arrow for lower. Since this step started us off with an Ace, the next card is obviously going to be lower. Let’s hit that down arrow.



Looks like we were right! A correct guess on the first step earns you 50 chips. Another card will be displayed, and it’s up to you to see how long you can keep your streak going. Once you make a wrong guess, the game will end, and your friend will get a chance to respond to your challenge. If you want to keep playing, simply choose another friend using the blue arrows at the bottom and start again! You can play with each friend once per day.

Each game has a maximum of 20 steps, and the rewards increase with each tier allowing you to earn a maximum of $10,000 chips per game!

Here’s a breakdown of the steps and corresponding chip rewards:

Step 1 - 50
Step 2 - 100
Step 3 - 200
Step 4 - 300
Step 5 - 400
Step 6 - 500
Step 7 - 600
Step 8 - 700
Step 9 - 800
Step 10 - 1000
Step 11 - 1500
Step 12 - 2000
Step 13 - 2500
Step 14 - 3000
Step 15 - 3500
Step 16 - 4000
Step 17 - 5000
Step 18 - 6000
Step 19 - 8000
Step 20 - 10000
Play daily to ensure that you earn as many chips as you can!

Is the card higher? Lower? YOU decide!

Have fun, and good luck!
