PokerStars Rewards. Built with The Players. For The Players.
Get more value for your play.
We've made PokerStars Rewards clearer and easier to understand with achievable targets and a fairer structure.
You can get from 15%-60% of rake and tournament fees back, depending on your rewards level.
PokerStars Rewards is your way to win rewards. Earn reward points every time you play real money poker.
Collect enough points to complete your progress bars, and you'll unlock Chests loaded with rewards.
You can manage all your rewards in the 'My Rewards' area of your account.
PokerStars Rewards has six regular levels, with each level rewarding a different Chest type of increasing value. The higher your Chest Level, the greater the rewards you'll win.
The number of reward points you need, the Chest value at each level, and the number of Chests required to upgrade to each level (in a rolling 28-day period) is shown below:
|Reward Points Requirements
|Number of Chests to Level Up
|Poker Reward %
If 28 days pass and you have not won a Chest, your progress bar will reset and you'll be moved down a level, where Chests will be easier to win but will contain a lower value of rewards.
Poker players earn 100 reward points for every $1 paid in fees for scheduled tournaments, and 100 reward points for every $1 paid in rake in Zoom or cash games or other tournament fees (130 reward points for every £1, and 110 points for every €1).
If you are at a higher level than Blue Chest, you will be able to exchange your progress bar for a lower level Chest. If you are eligible to exchange your progress bar, you will see the option available to you in 'My Rewards'.
These are the top tiers of PokerStars Rewards, where players get access to exclusive offers and a daily poker reward, credited as cash.
When players qualify for PokerStars Select or PokerStars Select+, they will be moved out of the regular PokerStars Rewards levels and promotions.

10. Our General Terms also apply to the PokerStars Rewards program.

23. Participation in PokerStars Select or PokerStars Select+ excludes you from participating in all other promotions offered under the PokerStars Rewards program (such as earning reward points and unlocking Chests).

24. If a player is able to demonstrate, to our satisfaction, that they have previously staked an amount that is equal to or exceeds the rake requirements for either tier using the service of another online poker operator (for example, documents evidencing real money rake history), we may, at our discretion, decide to enter the player into the relevant tier without them having met the rake requirements for entry on the PokerStars website. Please contact us at email@example.com to request consideration for this route of entry.
25. You may opt out of PokerStars Select or PokerStars Select+ and return to the standard membership entitlements of the PokerStars Rewards program at any time by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
