Default Partypoker\'s Partypoints for NL?

Just a quick question. Does playing $2000 NL and $25 NL actually net the same amount of party points at Party Poker? (I'm looking at the "All No Limit and Pot Limit Tables 4 Party Points" part of the point table.) Just seems...off.

For reference: this is PartyPoker's Regular PartyPoker Party Points description.

Game Type Party Points Earned
All No Limit and Pot Limit Tables 4 Party Points for every 20 raked hands played on these tables in a day
All $.5/$1 and $1/$2 Tables 4 Party Points for every 20 raked hands played on these tables in a day
All $2/$4 Tables 6 Party Points for every 20 raked hands played on these tables in a day
All $3/$6 and $5/$10 Non Jackpot Tables 12 Party Points for every 20 raked hands played on these tables in a day
All $3/$6 and $5/$10 Jackpot Tables 15 Party Points for every 20 raked hands played on these tables in a day
All $10/$20, $15/$30, $20/$40 and $30/$60 Non Jackpot Tables 18 Party Points for every 20 raked hands played on these tables in a day
All $10/$20 and $15/$30 Jackpot Tables 24 Party Points for every 20 raked hands played on these tables in a day
All $50/$100 and $100/$200 Non Jackpot Table 28 Party Points for every 20 raked hands played on these tables in a day

no it doesnt because more hands are raked at 2000NL than at 25NL..

many hands at 25NL do not meet the minimum requirement to be considered raked, whereas the majority of hands at 2000NL are "raked"..

I would guess that alot or the high limit nl players
are gold members and they get a few more points than
blue players.

Wrong.

Any rake taken at all on Party is a raked hand.
Stars requires $1 in rake to be a raked hands.
A hand at $2000 = A hand at $25 in terms of points.

"Raked hand: A hand that a) a player participates in (dealt cards) and b) has generated at least $0.01 in rake for that player. Generated rake is calculated by dividing the total rake collected in that hand by the number of players who were dealt cards."

So whereas a 5 cent rake would be taken per $1 pot in a $25NL/PL game it would not count as a raked hand when more than 5 people are at the table.

Fish&Chips is correct. A $2.00 pot reached at NL25 (and seeing flop, naturally) would officially count as a raked hand at a full 10-seat table.

To give a quick example of what Fish&Chips mean, if there are 8 players dealt to a 10-seat table: two limpers at $0.25 come in, SB completes the $0.10 to $0.25, and the BB checks the $0.25 BB, that is a $1.00 pot. Party will take 5 cents rake out, but for the 8 players, it is NOT considered an official raked hand if the BB bets $0.75 at the flop, and everyone folds.

This is an example that only really affects NL/PL25 tables, "basically".

Yeah, but the good no limit players take money away from the fish much faster than the limit players take away from the limit fish. Incentive programs are designed to reward the players and increase the profit centers for the house. Party is saying they do not want to encourage NL play. Its their program. Unfortunately from what I can tell, party points are not worth much.

I currently have about 100,000. All I can hope is they will have some cruise packages they want to get rid of last minute for a bunch of fpp's. Now the new stars program looks good for nl play at .50/1.00 and above, but for nl50 and nl 25 the fpp's will not add up there.
