partypoker VIP Scheme
On March 1, 2015, partypoker revamped its VIP scheme, making it much easier to reach the higher levels of the program. Players still earn points at a rate of 2 points per $1 paid in cash game rake or tournament fees, but the four VIP tiers are now easier to reach.
|Loyalty level||Old points requirement||New points requirement|
|Silver||400 per month||50 per month|
|Gold||1,000 per month||750 per month|
|Palladium||9,000 per quarter||2,000 per month|
Players can spend their points in the Points Store, which like the VIP scheme has been overhauled. Points can be exchanged for casino bonuses of between $5 and $1,000, poker tournament tickets from between $2 and $200 and cash amounts of $50 to $1,000.
The higher your loyalty level the better rewards are available to you.
Complete the missions to get free money!
Partypoker isn't just about poker but is also about having fun. At any given time, partypoker has available a wide variety of 'missions' you can challenge yourself with.
It is not only fun to complete missions, but you can also reward yourself with prizes and a unique badge.
You can find these missions by heading to Achievements and then to Missions within the partypoker client. From there, just choose any mission you wish to complete, read the steps involved, and click on Start Mission.
If you are a sit-and-go player, you should consider to challenge yourself with the EASY Sit & Go Mission or the EXTREME Sit & Go Mission.
Completing the EASY Sit & Go Mission will reward you with $10 in free cash once you will be done with its three main objectives:to play 3 sit-and-go tournaments a day for 3 days, to win a hand with AA, KK, QQ, JJ and TT, and to eliminate 1 player a day for 5 days in sit-and-gos.
The EXTREME Sit & Go Mission, however, will require a little more determination, but along with harder work comes bigger rewards with $25 in free cash and a $5 bonus.
Cash game players can help themselves to a free $25 by completing one of the two cash game missions available, the Cash Game Mission – Pocket Pairs and the Cash Game Mission – Final Hands.
Each mission has a different objective, with the first mission requiring you to receive pocket pairs from AA to 22 in descending order, and the second mission requires you to win at showdown in consecutive order all hands up to a straight-flush.
