How can we help?

General information on Play Money purchases

If you want to increase your Play Money balance to take part in high-stakes Play Money tournaments or cash games, you can purchase Play Chips via the Cashier.

After you have opened the Cashier, please select:

  • Play Money → Buy Chips

Alternatively, check out the bundle selection as follows:

  • Desktop: Open the Tools menu and select Transfers & Trades then Buy Play Money Chips.
  • Mobile: Make sure Play Money has been selected in the lobby and tap Buy Chips on the home screen.

If you want to boost your bankroll, simply choose the bundle you want to buy and pay with one of the available payment methods

Please note: It's not possible for players to purchase Play Money bundles using their real money Stars Account balance. Play Money chips are not related to real money play or funds in any way.
