    US can't play for real money anymore unfortunately.As for play chips you should still be allowed.You get threee 1000 chip buy in per hour if I'm not mistaken.If you lose the 3000 you have to wait an hour.
    When fish are in schools they sometimes take debate.

      Hi Jucetv. welcome to the PSO forum. Because of an agreement between the US Department of Justice and PokerStars, people in the US cannot play for real money at this time. You can play for play money using your old PokerStars program. If you do not have an old program you can download one from You can access most of the PSO site. There is an overview of the features here.

        Hi Juicetv.

        To get play money chips,
        Play Money Games

        Once your "total" play money chip balance goes below 100, you can get more chips up to three times per hour. The "total" is any amount you have at the tables plus anything remaining in your account.

        The refill option is only available in play money ring games, which are located in the ‘Hold'em’, ‘Omaha’, ‘Stud’ and ‘Other Games’ sections of the software. It is not possible to refill play money chips in tournaments.

        To get more play money chips, visit any play money ring game as described above. This must be a game with an open seat and with a buy-in lower than 1,000 chips (not a high-stakes table). Click on any ‘Seat Open’ icon, and your account will be automatically refilled to 1,000 chips. At this point, you may choose the amount you wish to bring to the table or you may then leave the table to play in other events such as play money tournaments.

        If you are already seated in a play money ring game, you can get more chips by clicking on the chip tray at the top of the table, and then clicking on ‘Add More Chips’, or by simply right-clicking on your own seat, which will bring up the rebuy menu.

        This is from PokerStars FAQ's section, which you can find under help in the main PokeStars lobby.

        Hope that helps
