As from January 1, 2010, players will need to reach 250 VPPs in order to
qualify to be paid CPA. Due to changes to our VIP program we expect to see
an increase in player activity and thus an increased likelihood of players
reaching 250 VPPs. If you are bringing in quality players, then this should

up in the past who have not yet been paid for; not just those who sign up
from January 1, 2010. The payout levels will remain the same.
Along with the changes to our VIP Program, from January 1, 2010 PokerStars
will be introducing Stellar Rewards. The rewards are a series of 19 cash
incentives that are gained by earning VPPs over the calendar year.
There are three different cash amounts:
• $10 – available at (750, 1.5k, 2.25k, 3k, 4k & 5k Yearly VPPs)
• $50 – available at (10k, 15k, 20k, 25k, 30k, 35k, 40k & 45k Yearly VPPs)
• $100 – available at (50k, 60k, 70k, 80k & 90k Yearly VPPs)
A player that reaches 90k Yearly VPPs in 2010 will earn the maximum of
