How the $600 First Deposit Bonus works
Make your first deposit using bonus code 'STARS600' and PokerStars will match your deposit 100% up to $600. Once you've made your deposit, you need to earn VIP Player Points (VPPs) by playing real money games on PokerStars. In most games, you'll receive 5 VPPs for every $1 you pay in tournament fees, or rake in a ring game hand (all PokerStars games and tournaments which have a rake or fee will award VPPs. Play Money and Freeroll tournaments will not award VPPS, as they do not charge cash fees.)
Every time you earn 100 VPPs we'll credit your PokerStars account with $10 cash
- that's a rebate of at least 50% on every dollar you spend. You have four months after each qualifying deposit to earn all the VPPs needed to release your bonus.
If you haven't claimed the whole $600 Bonus with your first deposit you may claim the remainder of your bonus during your second and third deposit.
Deposit now and you'll also be credited with one ticket to the $5,000 Depositor Freeroll played at 18:00 ET on the last Sunday of every month, and 1M free Play Money chips!
- This promotion is only available to players who make their very first real money deposit into their player account.
- This offer is only valid once per player.
- The maximum eligible deposit that any player can make will be capped at USD $600.
- Any player making an eligible deposit using the bonus code 'STARS600' will receive a bonus amount equivalent to the eligible deposit made. The maximum bonus payable shall not exceed the maximum eligible deposit of $600 whether in total or aggregate.
- The amount of bonus that a player will collect depends on the number of VPPs the player earns during the relevant period.
- The bonus will be paid out for each USD $10 increments. For example, the player makes a $50 eligible deposit in order to receive a Bonus of USD $50 (100%). The player now has a pending Bonus of $50 with 500 VPP (10 x 50) requirement to be achieved within the eligible period and will receive an incremental bonus of $10 every time that player earns 100 VPPs. If the player then makes a further eligible deposit of $400, he/she will receive another pending Bonus of $400.
- A player can track the bonus to be received by clicking on the 'Cashier' button in the poker client. Once in the cashier window of the client, there is a button labelled 'My Bonus Status.' Players will see a $10 credit in their transaction history in the Cashier ('Cashier' → 'History'). These are labelled as 'BONUS'.
- Bonus can be cleared at a rate of $10.00 for every 100 VPPs earned playing real money games at PokerStars.
- Players may make up to 3 (three) eligible deposits so as to receive the maximum bonus payable under this promotion provided that all eligible deposits: (i) must be made within 60 days from the date of the first eligible deposit; and (ii) are made using bonus code 'STARS600'.
- If a player cashes out any amount after making an eligible deposit, any subsequent deposits cannot count as eligible deposits. However, the player's pre-cash out eligible deposit continues to be valid, and the player can still collect the bonus generated from the pre-cash out Eligible Deposit.
- For the purposes of this bonus offer, eligible deposits shall exclude any type of real money credit such as marketing promotional credits, poker school credits from any of our sites (or any third party site if applicable) or freeroll winnings.
- Players may not combine or use any other deposit bonus schemes offered on PokerStars NJ.
- Where a player fails to enter or include a bonus code when making an Eligible Deposit and: a. no more than 7 (seven) days has passed since the first eligible deposit was made, then the player must contact email@example.com before the expiry of the 7 (seven) day period and (subject to all necessary conditions being met), the bonus will be credited to the player account together with the VPPs earned as from the date of the first eligible deposit until the player's account is credited with the bonus; b. more than 7 (seven) days but less than 3 (three) months have passed since the first eligible deposit was made, then the player must contact firstname.lastname@example.org before the expiry of the 3 (three) month period and only the bonus will be credited into the player's account. For the avoidance of doubt, no VPPs will be credited to that player as part of the bonus; and c. more than 3 (three) months has passed since the first eligible deposit was made, no bonus or VPPs shall be awarded or credited to the player's account. The $5,000 Depositor Freeroll ticket can be used to enter the freeroll played on the last Sunday of each month. The freeroll ticket is valid for 60 days and is non-transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash, T$, or other tickets/non-exchangeable. Any unused tickets after 60 days will be forfeited.
