PokerStars VIP Club adds Stellar Rewards
PokerStars is ready to give you $1,000 just for playing. We'd tell you more, but it's time for...
Lightning round trivia!
Do you know who is on the American $1,000 bill?
If you answered, "There is no such thing as a $1,000 bill," you responded exactly as we did when we conceived this trivia question. As it turns, out however, the United States actually did issue a bunch of $1,000 bills back in 1929. While a Richard Nixon order officially took the bills out of circulation years later, there are still thousands of them out there among bill collectors.
The real answer, by the way, is Grover Cleveland.
But, wait! There is still that matter of PokerStars wanting to give you $1,000!
PokerStars has just announced a brand new program for 2010. VIP Stellar Rewards is a way you can use one (yes, ONE) FPP point to cash in on your frequent play.
Here's how it works.
After you earn your first 750 VIP Player Points in 2010, you go to the VIP Store and pay one FPP. PokerStars will give you $10. Simple as that.
But, wait! There's more!
Eighteen more times throughout the year, depending on how much you play, you can go back to the store as cash in for various amounts. Over the course of the year, you can earn $10, $50, or $100 multiple times. If you make it to Supernova, you will have picked up an extra $1,000 in Stellar Reward money. That's all in addition to the regular (and, frankly, quite awesome) benefits you get from being part of the PokerStars VIP Club.
So, now you know both who is on the U.S. $1,000 bill and how you can get an extra grand in 2010.
