PokerStars is not only known as the biggest online poker room in the world, but also for having one of the best VIP frequent player programs to be found. And with the New Year, comes a new and better than ever VIP program at PokerStars!
For 2010 PokerStars has made some big changes to their VIP Program, and every one of the changes is set up to give their loyal players even bigger and better rewards! The new VIP Stellar Rewards program is a series of cash-credits that will be released to you throughout 2010.
How it works, there will be nineteen yearly milestones, each with a reward of up to $100 that start at just 750 VPPs (player points). And by starting with just 750 VPPs, they have set a goal attainable by all players! And if you are a high limit player or just a player who plays a lot of hours and achieves a level of earning 90,000 VPPs, you will really cash in big for a total of $1,000! Plus PokerStars has restructured the formula for awarding VPPs, so you can really rack them up – faster than ever before!
Every month all players at PokerStars start at the BronzeStar level then advance to SilverStar, GoldStar and PlatinumStar which are the monthly VIP levels. That means that in order to achieve these levels, players have to earn a certain number of VPPs during a single month. Supernova and Supernova Elite are the highest levels of the VIP Club and are achieved on a yearly basis by a select few PokerStars players. Each level brings its own unique set of rewards and benefits and with the new Stellar Rewards program, in no time at all you could be teetering at the very top of the VIP ladder!
Once you reach a VIP level, you instantly will receive all the benefits that level has to offer for the remainder of the month AND the following month! Your monthly VPP counter resets at the beginning of each month, so to maintain a particular level in the VIP Club, you must earn the required VPPs in the following month in order to stay at that VIP level or to advance to the next level. And to help you climb that VIP ladder even faster, PokerStars has lowered the SilverStar VPP qualification to just 750 VPPs and combined their VIP Freerolls to now offer four quarterly $1 million VIP FreeRolls throughout the year!
And during the month of January, PokerStars is running special ‘sales’ on their VIP store items! That means that you can exchange your VPPs for fabulous merchandise, tournament tickets and even bonus dollars at an even better rate! Every day PokerStars will feature one item they put ‘on sale’ for 24 hours, so if you have had your eye on a particular item, check out the daily featured item for savings of 15% up to 50% off! The gadget you have been saving your VPPs for, like that new iPod - just may be a bargain this month!
But the VPP sale only lasts until January 31st so get to PokerStars now and earn those VPPS and get to shopping!
