January PokerStars VIP Club Blast Off

Extra VIP Poker Club Reward Offers!

All through January the PokerStars VIP Club is offering you more value than ever with a selection of added incentives for all players.

Here’s what’s on offer:

Discount TCOOP Tickets & Merchandise Sale

The Turbo Championship of Online Poker (TCOOP) is PokerStars brand-new tournament series running January 19-29, and players with SilverStar status and higher can buy event seats from the VIP Store. The tickets are available at discounted rates, and the higher your status, the better the discounts are, so make sure you aim high!

More than 100 items in the store will also be on offer for lower prices - some as much as 60% - from January 4 until the end of the month. You can find the discounted TCOOP tickets in the VIP Store, under ‘Online Tournament Tickets’. You can see a list of sale items under ‘2012 January Sale’.

Please Note: There are only a limited amount of TCOOP tickets in stock, and players are only able to purchase one of each discounted ticket on offer. Tickets purchased can only be used in TCOOP events.
