PokerStars Introduces Game-Changing Updates to Loyalty Program

World-renowned online poker platform, PokerStars, unveiled its revamped Rewards Program on January 22, 2024, bidding farewell to its Weekly Poker Challenges in favor of a more transparent and fair system. The decision came after a significant number of participants failed to complete the challenges, citing complaints about progress bars being reset regardless of proximity to completion.

Under the new program, players can expect a more predictable and rewarding experience as it is now volume-based, allowing players to plan and achieve targets at their own pace. While the minimum requirements for earning a Rewards Chest have been raised for regular players, the program now offers more substantial rewards ranging from 25% to an impressive 40%, all provided as cash.

In an effort to bridge the gap between casual and regular players, PokerStars ensures that recreational players falling within the Bronze and Blue Levels are not left out. These players will now receive daily rewards, including a fixed $0.50 Power Path ticket, encouraging them to take part in PokerStars adventures.

Additionally, PokerStars introduced exclusive tiers called PokerStars Select and Select+ for high-volume players based on the rake generated within a rolling one-year period. The perks include designated personal account managers, increased reward rates, and exclusive promotions, providing a first-class experience for the platform’s most dedicated players. The eligibility criteria for these exclusive levels are set at $/€50,000 and $/€100,000 in rake, respectively, over a one-year period.

These changes aim to create a more transparent, rewarding, and inclusive experience for PokerStars’ diverse player base, promising increased generosity with up to 40% in Rakeback for the majority and an impressive 60% for the top-tier players.

In other news, PokerStars also entered into a significant partnership with Playson, a prominent digital entertainment supplier. The agreement allows Playson to supply PokerStars with popular games, starting with Solar King and expanding to include hits like 3 Pots Riches: Hold and Win, Coin Strike: Hold and Win, and Royal Coins 2: Hold and Win. The collaboration aims to enhance PokerStars’ gaming offerings, initially in the United Kingdom and Malta, with potential expansion to Spain and Ontario in the future.
