Question about RakeBack - Sat Oct 20, 2012, 02:42 PM

So I got my bankroll from 300 to 2000 dollars.

Ive heard some people saying I should use a RakeBack program. I could earn money by using it in the long run.

I cant really find any info on it and how to get the program.

Can someone give me a short info about it and recommend the right program?

Thanks in advance!

Pokerstars don't do rakeback, they have a generous rewards program that beats RB the higher the stakes you move. I emailed support ages ago asking about a RB deal but they won't do it no matter if your a new client or signed up through an affiliate. If I remember correctly (don't quote me on these figures) Bronze Star is equivalent to 11% RB while SN Elite is 80% or similar.

Check out www.fpppro.com and there's a calculator there that will help you.

I've recently tried to challenge myself to get to Supernova by the end of next year but I've some info on there about Supernova:

Gday Senja,

Check out this link: http://www.pokerstars.com/vip/ I was looking there a couple of weeks ago, it has everything you need to know. It has the equivalent rakeback amount for each VIP level on that page too, Ovalman was in the right ball park.. 17% for BronzeStar and 74% for SuperNova Elite (I think they may change slightly like +/- 1 or 2% if you take advantage of the VIP freerolls). So for your rakeback on SilverStar is will be ~21% (and as Ovalman said you are automatically in the VIP program, so the rakeback has been at work for all of your play)

Btw well done with the bankroll building, very nice
