Summary of the 2013 VIP Club Changes

The changes listed below are permanent, and will go into effect on January 1, 2013 (unless otherwise noted).

New Monthly VIP status & rewards: ChromeStar
A new monthly VIP status named ‘ChromeStar’ will be introduced, between the BronzeStar and SilverStar VIP statuses. The monthly VIP Player Point (VPP) requirement to achieve or maintain ChromeStar VIP status is 100 VPPs.

ChromeStar VIPs will have all the same rewards and benefits as BronzeStar VIPs, plus free entry to the new VIP $5,000 Weekly Tournament and access to the 100K Privilege Freerolls. These freerolls will also be available to SilverStar and higher VIPs.

Decreased VIP status Requirements for SilverStar and GoldStar

The monthly requirement to achieve and maintain SilverStar VIP status will be decreased to 500 VPPs. This represents a 33% drop from the previous requirement of 750 monthly VPPs.

The monthly requirement to achieve and maintain GoldStar VIP status will be decreased to 2,500 VPPs. This represents a 17% drop from the previous requirement of 3,000 monthly VPPs.

VIP Club Hall of Fame: Expanded Lifetime Rewards

The VIP Club has been presenting players who earn 5,000,000 lifetime VPPs with customized TAG Heuer watches. This program has now been expanded to include the following benefits:

At 5,000,000 lifetime VPPs, players become part of the VIP Club Hall of Fame. An engraved TAG Heuer watch will be presented to them at a PokerStars Live Event, for example, the PCA or a VIP Club Live party. In addition, they will receive live English language support over instant messenger from senior PokerStars staff.

At 10,000,000 lifetime VPPs, we’ll create an experience unique to the player who has earned it. The player will also be provided with a cell phone number to call senior PokerStars staff for urgent issues. There is currently one player in this Hall of Fame bracket: Team Online member George Lind, who earned his 10 millionth VPP in September of 2012.

Summary of additional VIP Club Announcements

VIP $1,000,000 Quarterly Tournament 2013 dates

This tournament offers a $1,000,000 prize pool four times a year. Supernova VIPs can enter for free. The VIP $1,000,000 Quarterly tourney will be held on the following dates in 2013: February 16, June 1, August 17, and November 16.

Like all VIP Tournaments, the VIP $1,000,000 Quarterly can be found under ‘Tourney’ > ‘VIP’ > ‘All’ in the PokerStars game client.

VIP Benefits at the PCA 10th Anniversary

This year at the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure (PCA) Supernova VIPs will be offered free transportation from Nassau Airport to the Atlantis Resort. Supernova VIPs will be sent more information about this in November’s Supernova Quarterly Newsletter. Alternatively, you can email vipclub@pokerstars.com for more details.

Supernova and Supernova Elite VIPs will have their own priority line for the PokerStars bank. Further details coming soon.

Looks interesting and achievable.

It also makes the steps from Bronze to Supernova a lot easier.

I like the concept. It gives Bronze players ( of which is the majority of players )an incentive to get an extra reward instead of staying bronze forever because silver is way out of their reach.

Is the multiplying factor for FPPs staying the same ?

Gotta say I like the new ChromeStar level. Have thought about making an attempt at getting SilverStar status, but for me to have made a successful and profitable charge would have taken a bigger bankroll than what I've got.

I'll crunch some numbers soon and see if I can make ChromeStar.

'Cause I have done it before and I can do it some more I got my eye on the score'
