More Changes to PokerStars VIP program

Poker-StarsAmaya Gaming has announced that it is to make a series of changes to the VIP programme for its PokerStars brand.

In an email to customers, Amaya said a new rewards programme will be launched at some point next year, with the updated system to cover all PokerStars products, including the BetStars sportsbook.

All players will move to the programme, although customers will not be required to play any specific product to build up certain rewards.

“You won’t be required to play on any specific product, but your activity on all products will help you progress on your path to earning rewards,” Amaya said in the email.

In addition, VIP statuses are to be discontinued upon launch of the new programme and replaced with a new programme that rewards recent activity, meaning that programmes such as Supernova will change from a year-long system to a monthly status.

“From January 1, Supernova will be a monthly status for players who achieve it in 2017, while players who earn Supernova status in 2016 will retain it until the launch of the new rewards programme,” Amaya said.
