RocketFrog has launched a poker and casino application on Facebook that awards real prizes. Advertisers sponsor poker tournaments and put up rewards such as gift cards to create a prize pool. There is no entry fee to play: all tournaments are free.
The site appeals to players “who could not fathom the idea of playing for nothing, but are ecstatic about the opportunity to play for gift cards from top brands, new albums from their favorite artists or a ticket to the movies.
The poker has very poor liquidity, it takes 20 minutes to get seated.
