Merge VIP Program changes!?
I don't know about you guys, but I had reached level 10 Card on RPM, and I had a nice $2000 monthly freeroll to play at the end of every month. Once you get to your level you always had access to that game every month for free. This was nice because it had like 250 runners in it. I was considering trying to reach level Jack card, in order to participate in the monthly $3000 freeroll, since it was only getting like 150 runners.
Well, no more free ride folks!
Turns out they are all gone, and replaced by a network-wide $10,000 freeroll! For the new one you need to get 250 VIP points every month to get into it. Unlike before, where you just got to a certain level and you were just able to play that freeroll. Now you have to work to get into it - and I guarantee this new game will get over a thousand runners.
Kind of glad I didn't waste my time trying to get to Jack Level.
EDIT: Just confirmed with RPM chat that those games are gone and replaced by the $10K. If you do level up, you can get more cash from your VIP points, UNLESS you are a rakeback player, which I am. So in MY case, there is NO incentive to level up. Good game, Merge.
