PokerStars Rakeback

por Uta Fornachon (26-11-2018)


Rakeback is just part of online card rooms. Like multi-tabling and isolating limpers, it's pretty much automatic to higher volume, regular players. PokerStars Rakeback can have a huge effect on your bankroll and winrate. Just how big of an impact? Many people don't even realize the actual numbers. In fact, the rake can be nearly 5 big blinds/100 hands (even higher at the lower stakes)! To put that in numbers, if you are a 100NL player, every 100,000 hands, you could be paying more than $5,000 just in rake!

So if you play 100,000 hands and let's just say you run break-even against the players, you actually would end up down $5,000 because of the rake. Now let's say you have rakeback (or equivalent) of 30%, meaning, of course, that you get 30% of your rake given back to you. In this case you would get $1,500 back, which would only leave you down $3,500. This could obviously be a huge difference between being a losing player and breakeven, or breakeven and profitable. And if you are already a winning player, rakeback is just gravy.

If you are a high volume player, you might as well be getting money back while you play. Some might find it interesting and curious that the largest poker site in the world is one that technically does not offer rakeback. There are a lot of great reasons to play at PokerStars, however, those that don't play at PokerStars would argue that they can't get rakeback at Stars and they don't offer many deposit or reload bonuses, so why would I play there?

That's where they are wrong. It is true that you can't get third party rakeback like you can at many other sites. However, PokerStars realizes that their valued regulars need to get some value for their precious time. This is where their VIP Club comes in. PokerStars Rakeback has six levels to their VIP Club. BronzeStar - This is where everyone starts, no real benefits here, just the basics. SilverStar - If you earn 1,500 VPPs per month, you become a SilverStar.

At this level you earn 1.5 FPPs for every VPP. GoldStar - When you earn more than 4,000 VPPs in a month you are bumped up to GoldStar. Here you get 2 FPPs for each VPP. PlatinumStar - You get 2.5 FPPs for every VPP when you are a PlatinumStar. You get to this level by earning more than 10,000 VPPs in a calendar month. This is where the benefits really begin to come in. SuperNova - This is really the goal when playing at PokerStars. You become SuperNova when you earn 100,000 VPPs in a calendar year.
