PokerStars excited to announce that later this summer – as early as July – they will be launching Stars Rewards, a new rewards program. This program offers an exciting, personalised gaming experience that rewards players for their real money play. We offer a variety of options, including poker, casino and sports (where available).

When Stars Rewards launch, the rewards you receive are based on the new mechanics of the program.  VIP statuses and the rewards associated with the current VIP Club program will be discontinued.  You’ll receive the full prorated value of your current VIP Step when the new program launches.

We’ll be in touch soon with more news about how you can make the most of Stars Rewards.

Once again, we at 888poker are changing the game!

Last year, 888poker introduced BLAST events, which are super-turbo Texas hold’em sit and goes played four-handed.  Traditionally our BLAST events have lasted 5 minutes, but now we’re introducing Fast BLAST tournaments where the timer runs out after just 2 minutes!

Fast Blast is convenient for you!

This means you could play approximately 15 (!) games in the same amount of time it’d take you to do the dishes.
It’s the perfect option for those players who feel the need for speed!

Partypoker Ambassador Patrick Leonard hosts the new Diamond Club VIP Program

Partypoker is proud to launch the Diamond Club, the top VIP level for the new Cashback Loyalty Program. Last week new partypoker Chairman Mike Sexton outlined ten commitments he’d like to deliver for the poker community. His aim is to “reward players who start games and keep the action going”. The Diamond VIP Club will do just this, rewarding its members with at least 50% rakeback plus other VIP bonuses.

To be eligible, players must commit to earning 100,000 points [$100,000] over a 12 month period across any poker game type including MTTs, Ring Games, Fast Forward, SNG HERO and STTs. Players will receive their normal weekly cashback every Monday into their online account.  The additional cashback and VIP Bonuses are paid once players achieve the agreed 12 month points target. Should a player achieve their target in less than 12 months, the extra Diamond Club Cashback and benefits will be paid out as soon as the player reaches the points target.  Lastly, Members receive dedicated 24/7 Skype Customer Support from the Diamond Club team.

Welcome to Stars Rewards!

I’m happy to announce that this summer we will be launching Stars Rewards, our new rewards program. Stars Rewards is an integrated rewards program that will offer an exciting, personalised gaming experience that rewards players for their play in poker, casino, and sports (where available) making every game count.

Stars Rewards gives you Chests that offer a variety of rewards, all personalised to the games that you like to play. You can open Chests as soon as you earn them – or collect them and open when it best suits you. Every Chest offers you the chance at winning a huge prize, no matter what type of player you are.

This video gives you a glimpse into what it will look like.

Stars Rewards Overview

Excitement: Stars Rewards is designed to create excitement with a variety of rewards with randomized values. The more you play, the bigger the Chests.

Big top prizes: Every time you open a Chest there’s a chance that you win a big top prize. It might be $1,000 in cold hard cash, 1,000,000 StarsCoin, or a PokerStars Championship package worth thousands of dollars or, if you are a sports bettor, a big bet for an upcoming match. The top prizes will be changing on an ongoing basis, but every Chest for every player gives you the chance at a big prize.

Personalised rewards: Chests will offer a variety of rewards including StarsCoin, free sports bets, tournament tickets, casino instant bonuses, and more, all personalised to reflect your gameplay. For example, a tournament player will predominantly receive tournament money or tournament tickets, whereas a sports-bettor would receive free bets. You will also earn StarsCoin from Chests, and will continue to be able to redeem them in the store at the same rate for cash rebates, tickets, merchandise, and more.

Fasttrack your progress: You will be able to double the speed you make progress for a short period each session you play via ‘boosts’, designed to reward players who play more frequently and play in consecutive days.

We will be launching Stars Rewards first in Denmark later this month, with Italy planned shortly thereafter, and most other markets planned for later this summer. We will notify players via email when we are close to launching in each market.
