Default Re: Time to unstack that treasure trove of Stars bonii

Yep I had over $1000 in accumulated Stars bonuses and this morning I settled into the $200 NL tables for a few days [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

To make it even better I'm running at 20PTBB/100 over the first 1k hands [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

life is good

The double FPP's do - you just get 2 FPP's rather than 1 for each $20+ 'raked hand' - making each raked hand worth 40c rather than the current 20c until midnite on 31st December.

After that the VIP system will be in operation - if you can manage 1500 FPP in the first month you will qualify for silver status and your FPP's in the next month accumulate at 1.5FPP/raked hand. If you can make 4k FPP/month that gets you gold status which means 2FPP/raked hand (ie the same as is on offer now)

...except that the bonus FPPs you get for your VIP status will not count towards any reload bonuses. From the VIP FAQs:

Q. Do extra FPPs that I earn in the VIP program count towards earning PokerStars deposit bonuses?

A. No, they don't

which is pretty clear.

So make the most of the current rich times!

but even at the old rate you would clear any reload bonuses if you got 1500 FPP/month


The real issue is how good are you at coneverting FPP's to cash?

Looks like they changed the bonus counting. Last nite the 2x applied to the bonus account but today it did not. Earned 50 today and only got 25 in the bonus account.

If that is true it seems very mean-spirited of Lee and I'm quite disappointed - I would expect better of Stars as they launch the program they hope will take them to the No. slot..

As of right now it is still counting double for me. I too would be dissappointed if the terms had changed. $300 down and $600 left to do. [img]/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Isn't the no slot pretty much locked up by pokerspot?

After seeing your post, I played a two hour session, and was credited with the same number of FPPs for my next bonus as I was for my FPP balance. So it doesn't appear to have changed at all.

Thanks, I'll try again. I wrote down the fpps before I started so maybe it was just a glitch.
