It seems like every year PokerStars ups the ante on player loyalty programs. 2011 is no different as the VIP Program truly has something for everyone – whether you’re a recreational player or a serious grinder seeking the Holy Grail of poker site status symbols… Supernova Elite. For each real money hand or tournament that you play here you’ll earn FPP’s (Frequent Player Points) which accumulate in your players account. Riding shotgun with the FPP’s are VPP’s (VIP Player Points), which contribute to your “status” that starts out at Bronze Star and graduates up depending on the number of points you earn to Supernova Elite level that VERY few players ever achieve. It typically takes close to a year playing multiple tables for thousands of hours to even reach the Supernova Elite level.
So what is the proverbial carrot being dangled to drive players to reach Supernova Elite?
How about a 400% multiplier on FPP’s and straight up cash rewards? Also, don’t forget the private $30K weekly and $100K monthly free rolls. Among other perks you’ll also get free entry into the World Championship of Online Poker (WCOOP) each year so as long as you maintain your Supernova status.
For most casual or part time players there’s still plenty to be excited about because you can exchange points for merchandise ranging from tee shirts to televisions as well as tournament entries and best of all, cold hard cash. This is a great program that far exceeds what many other poker sites offer.
When you combine the VIP Club loyalty program with the $600 PokerStars Bonus, you are definitely getting an edge. Get more details about how to earn points, multipliers, FPPs, VPPs and the different VIP levels on the PokerStars VIP page.
