Once you’ve made your deposit(s), you earn the bonus by playing real money games on PokerStars and collecting the number of VPPs equal to 17 times the bonus amount (USD figure, see table below for VPP clearance rates in other currencies). The bonus is released in increments of 10 ($10, £10, €10 etc.), each released into your account as you clear the needed VPPs (e.g. 170 VPPs for every $10 increment). You have six months after each qualifying deposit to earn all the VPPs needed to release your bonus which gives you plenty of time to clear the entire amount.

No other loyalty scheme makes you feel more important than the PokerStars VIP Club. The more you play, the more the benefits increase and you can spend your hard earned Frequent Player Points on luxury items, live and online tournament entries, big cash bonuses, and even a concierge service. Then there is, of course, the Supernova Elite program which is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars to those that get there.

On January 1st, 2012, PokerStars changed the way they award VIP Player Points (VPPs); switching from what is known as the "dealt" method to "weighted contribution." Historically VPPs would be split equally amongst all the players who were dealt into a hand regardless of their contributing to a pot or not. But since the change, VPPs are awarded proportionally based on each player's contribution to the pot.

The examples below show the changes in action:

Five players at a $1/$2 No Limit Holdem cash game

Pre-flop:

  • Player 1 raises to $6
  • Player 2 folds
  • Player 3 folds
  • Player 4 (the $1 small blind) calls
  • Player 5 (the $2 big blind) calls

Post-flop:

  • Player 4 bets $9
  • Player 5 moves all in for $21
  • Player 1 folds
  • Player 4 calls
  • The remaining cards are dealt and the $60 pot is awarded to Player 4.

The pot is $60 in total so the total rake on this pot is $3, which is worth 16.5VPPs (5.5VPPs per $1). Under the old system each of the five players would have received 16.5/5 = 3.3VPPs, despite Players 4 & 5 contributing $27 each to the pot, Player 1 $6 and the other two players nothing.

Under the new method the VPPs would be awarded as follows:

  • Player 1 contributed $6 (10% of the pot) so receives 1.65 VPPs
  • Player 2 contributed $0 (0% of the pot) so receives 0 VPPs
  • Player 3 contributed $0 (0% of the pot) so receives 0 VPPs
  • Player 4 contributed $27 (45% of the pot) so receives 7.43 VPPs
  • Player 5 contributed $27 (45% of the pot) so receives 7.43PPs

Player Points

Players earn Frequent Player Points (FPPs) every time they play in a real money poker game or use cash to buy in to a tournament. FPPs can be used to purchase cool merchandise ranging from caps and coffee cups all the way up to premium items like Plasma TVs and even cars. FPPs can also be used for tournament buy-ins for both online tournaments and to major live events like the EPT.
