Becoming a SilverStar


The third level in the VIP Club, SilverStar is loaded with benefits.  It’s been created to reward your current play and inspire you to shine even brighter as you move towards the GoldStar and PlatinumStar VIP levels.

SilverStar VIP status requires 500 monthly VPPs. As a SilverStar VIP, you can enjoy earning points faster, spending your points in better ways, and playing more VIP tournaments.

Note: Your monthly VPP counter resets at the beginning of each month. To maintain a particular level in the VIP Club, you must earn the required VPPs in the following month in order to stay at that VIP level or to advance to the next level.
