PokerStars Marketing Code 2012
PokerStars is the largest real money poker site in the online poker industry. In addition to delivering the most innovative poker software, PokerStars also provides first class customer care, serious yet effective security, and some of the best poker promotions in the online poker world, beginning with the new depositor bonus of 100% deposit match up to $600 (€465, £390, or CAD $625).
Achieving the $600 bonus is a relatively straight-forward process considering you are willing to deposit a total of $600 into your new PokerStars account, and play the required amount of real money cash games or tournaments.
First off, visit PokerStars and register your new account with the 2012 PokerStars Marketing Code of “PSA7201“. This special Poker Stars Marketing Code delivers further perks, which we describe at the bottom of the page!
New players qualify for the PokerStars.com 100% match bonus upon making their first real money deposit. The PokerStars new player bonus is a 100% match bonus, meaning if you deposit $200, your bonus will be $200. The largest bonus possible is $600, €465, £390, or CAD $625. Use the PokerStars Bonus Code STARS600 each time you make a deposit to take advantage, up to your first three deposits or up to $600. Type STARS600 into the “bonus code” field on the deposit screen before processing your payment!
The deposit amount can be of any size, but you are required to deposit a total of $600 within 3 deposits, and within the first 90 days to maximize the bonus of $600. The PokerStars download has recently added this feature – allowing 3 deposits within a 90 day period – to make it easier for new players to earn the complete $600 bonus amount.
Again, be sure to type in the PokerStars.com bonus code STARS600 upon processing your initial deposit and any subsequent deposits that qualify for the welcome bonus (first 3 deposits).
You can “cash out” the bonus, once you have earned the required number of VIP Player Points (VPP’s).
Players earn VPP’s by participating in real money tourneys and ring games in PokerStars. The real money poker games have a rake or an entry fee that the player pays, and this converts to VPP’s. Players earn more VPP’s by playing in tourneys and cash games with higher rakes. Each $1 spent on the rake earns the player 5.5 VPPs. The rake fee is dependent on the specific game. For example, a $20+2 tournament has a $2 rake. This means you pay $20 dollars towards to the total prize pool, to the pot and $2 to the house rake. Participating in this tournament earns you 11 VPP’s. A $5 dollar tourney has a $0.50 rake fee, so you would earn 2.75 VPP’s.
It isn’t necessary to win the game or tournament to obtain the VPP’s, every poker player automatically gets the VPP’s. Click the “Cashier” button and then the “Check My Bonus Status” button to view your VPP’s.
You must collect VPP’s equal to 17 times the bonus amount (based on $USD figure, see table below for VPP clearance rates in other currencies). In other words to earn the maximum bonus of $600, you would need to earn 17×600 or 10,200 VPP’s. The cash bonus is awarded in increments of 10 ($10, £10, €10 etc), each transferred into your account as you clear the needed VPP’ss (e.g. 170 VPPs for every $10 increment). You have six months after each qualifying deposit to collect all the VPP’s required to collect your bonus, which is plenty of time to get the maximum bonus of $600, €465, £390, or CAD $625!
The bonus rewards will automatically be paid into your cashier account and you will receive an email from PokerStars.com letting you know that a bonus has been deposited into your account. You may check your PokerStars account screen to see that the bonus is no longer listed as “Pending”, and then check “History” in the “Cashier” section to see that it has been applied to your real money balance.
When you break down the PokerStars welcome bonus for the tournament player, you must spend about $3 in tournament fees to earn $1 in bonus. This 3:1 ratio is average among the online poker rooms. But PokerStars provides more flexibility with its welcome bonus by allowing 3 separate deposits to count towards the bonus and 6 months to achieve the necessary VPP’s.
BONUS SUMMARY: $3 Tournament Fees = $1 in Bonus
