Attend PokerStars VIP Club Live Events in Your Country Using FPPS
Every real money poker player at PokerStars is automatically entered into the outstanding reward scheme, the VIP Club which is an integral part of the PokerStar community currently standing at more than 50 million strong. You launch your VIP membership at the BronzeStar level and it is up to you to propel yourself through to the top of the seven levels based on the amount of money you contribute in rake during cash games and the level of buy in that you pay for a seat in tournaments. Your status level is determined by the number of VIP Points accumulated monthly in the card room with these points are earned from real money play.
For every dollar of rake contributed to the pot in each raked hand you receive 5 VPPs with the exact rate for each currency available on the dedicated VIP Club page. VPPs determine your level in the VIP Club and at the same time as earning VPPs you earn Frequent Player Points or FPPs depending on your VIP status level. The higher your status, the more FPPs you receive for every VPP earned at real money poker games and tournaments.
FPPs are for use as currency in the VIP Store where you can buy into valuable tournaments with massive guaranteed prizepools and for tokens to play at cash tables where you could convert your FPPs into massive wins. The VIP store has a superb selection of merchandize with the PokerStars logo on them, poker equipment, clothing and excellent books about poker written by famous poker pros. FPPs can also be converted to cash giving your bankroll a welcome boost when you feel in need of one.
