PokerStars 2015 VIP Club Changes

There will be only one change to PokerStars.com and shared liquidity VIP Club rewards effective January 1, 2015: players earning 1 million VPPs will no longer be rewarded with $5,200 in WCOOP/TCOOP/SCOOP entries. Players who earn 1 million VPPs in 2014 will still earn this reward as advertised, in fact some have earned and used this reward already this year.

We are proud to offer what we believe continues to be the best rewards program in online poker.

While we are making only this one change this year, it follows a substantial review of the PokerStars VIP Club conducted earlier this year. We are considering more significant changes for implementation in 2016. Details will be available in the second half of next year.

In specific countries where regulation and taxation comes into effect, we will also continue to reduce VPP multipliers, Stellar Rewards, and/or Milestones. PokerStars UK and PokerStars.bg are two countries for which rewards will change slightly in 2015 as a result.

Changes for PokerStars .it/.es/.fr will be announced separately in the appropriate communities at a later date.

Clearly nothing less than a money grab.

Not even an attempt at redistribution. More could have been done to help recreational players at the lower end of the VIP Reward ladder. Nothing was done.
