JUMPSTART with free VPPs at PokerStars

Share this

PokerStars has added new meaning to celebrating the New Year by giving away free VPPs to all players that jump in and take advantage of this incredible offer! You'll have to move it if you want to collect your free VPPS because at 11:59 pm ET on January 8th, 2014, this special offer will become history!

All you have to do to have up to 1,000 free VPPs in your account is opt-in through the Star Code “JUMPSTART” before midnight on January 8th, 2014. Your VIP level at the time you use the Star Code will decide the amount of jumpstart VPPs you will receive — the higher your level, the better. Check the table below to see how high you're VPPs will boost.

Jumpstart VPP BoostVIP Status at Time of Opt-In
15 VPPsBronzeStar
25 VPPsChromeStar
125 VPPsSilverStar
625 VPPsGoldStar
1,000 VPPsPlatinumStar and higher

NOTE: This promotion does not award FPPS, only VPPs. Check the PokerStars help pages for clarification on the difference between the two.

To get the most value from this promotion, build your status level up to a higher VIP level before the time runs out on January 8th and then get ready to claim your free PokerStars VPPS! Once you're in the PokerStars lobby and have accessed your account, enter the Star Code “JUMPSTART” — look for your free VPPs within a few minutes.
