In the mean time, playing poker with virtual chips on social networks has never been as huge. These so called social free poker games owe their popularity to the reality that as being built around a entertainment you usually see in a casino; because players cant cash out their winnings, for legislators, its not gambling so they (and the companies running them) are fine with them.
Now the companies running these games are seriously thinking about installing cash out options once the game will be converted, and the companies running real money poker rooms are looking at social poker games as a way of not only as offering a altered version of the game, but also attacking virgin territories such as social networks or mobile devices.
