Is it technically a gambling site if there's no pay-out?

I've made an online game that involves gambling with worthless chips. If I were to sell (but not buy) these worthless chips, would I become subject to various laws concerning gambling? What if I sell membership, and that comes with a free allotment of chips? Basically I want people to feel like they're actually losing something when they lose to keep the game interesting, but I don't want to run an actual gambling site where people play for profit. If it matters, I'm thinking about something like $1 for enough chips to last a week or two, and I'm in the US.
