Rewards of up to 65% Rakeback
While jumping into the Big 20 frenzy, don’t forget that last month a new rewards system at PokerStars worth 65% rakeback was made available to all players.
Pokerstars Rewards scored a 78% jump in customer satisfaction for the 20% of players who tried it. The new system aims to be more generous and transparent.
You can get up to 65% rewards in the form of a baseline rakeback up to 25% and up to 40% more in the form of Monthly Challenges. All formats earn the same points including high stakes cash games, sports and casino.
The rewards are all fixed value rather than random, as per the previous Chests programme. It will still be in the form of Chests which are Blue, Bronze, Silver, Gold, Diamond and Black respectively.
These are the benefits you can expect from the new system:
|Level||Chest Value||Value||Monthly Challenge Cashback||Reward Points/Rake Required||Number of Chests to move up|
|Silver||$5||17.5%||Up to 40%||2,850/$28.50||7|
