Make your first-ever real money deposit using the bonus code ‘STARS600’ and marketing code POKERNEWS.COM, and PokerStars will give you a 100% bonus up to $600 (see table below for other currencies). You can make up to three qualifying deposits in 90 days (up to the maximum bonus value) - the perfect way to take full advantage of the 100% bonus.
Once you’ve made your online poker deposit(s), you earn the bonus by playing on PokerStars and collecting the number of VPPs equal to 17 times the bonus amount (USD figure, see table below for VPP clearance rates in other currencies). The bonus is released in increments of 10 ($10, £10, €10 etc), each released into your account as you clear the needed VPPs (e.g. 170 VPPs for every $10 increment). You have six months after each qualifying deposit to earn all the VPPs needed to release your bonus.
The following table shows bonus and clearance rates in all the currencies that PokerStars offers*.
