Changes in the PokerStars VIP Program

Poker Rooms | estimated reading time
2010. October 01.
Effective today (1st October), <a href="http://www.rakerace.com/poker-rooms/pokerstars/" title="PokerStars Room Review"><em><strong>PokerStars</strong></em> </a>announced changes in its VIP Club Rewards system, in accordance with player feedback. The nature of the modifications was published on <a href="http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/28/internet-poker/pokerstars-vip-program-changes-oct-1st-2010-a-887224/" title="2+2 forum">2+2</a> and reads as follows:
Effective October 1st, VIP Reward Bonuses purchased from the VIP Store will instantly reward players with cash. In the past, players had to earn VPPs equal to 7 times the dollar amount of the bonus prior to the reward being credited to their account. This requirement will be removed.

Also, starting October 1st, NL and PL ring games at limits up to and including $0.05/$0.10 will earn VPPs at rates faster than other stakes. The new rates will last at least through December 31st, 2010.

$0.01/$0.02: 12X
$0.02/$0.05: 10X
$0.05/$0.10: 8X

These rates will be reflected at new tables created as of October 1st. Older tables awarding the previous VPP rates may still exist until the next server restart. Note that the 10X multiplier from the MicroMania promotion in July was continued unannounced and is still in effect, so the 'older' tables are awarding 10X VPPs.

NL/PL ring games at other stakes will continue to award VPPs as normal. All Fixed Limit games, including stakes that have been awarding 10X since July, will also award VPPs at normal rates. Some older Fixed Limit tables up to and including $0.10/$0.20 may continue to award VPPs at 10X until the next server restart. The normal VPP rates for ring games are:

8+ seats: 6X
7- seats: 5.5X
