PokerStars Bonus Code 2012
PokerStars is not only the biggest online poker room available today, but now they have expanded their box-of-chocolates to include one of the best first deposit bonuses in all of online poker! This, coupled with an awesome frequent player program, great software, a ton of weak players, and a unique multi-deposit system to ensure you get the full $600 PokerStars bonus even if you do not happen to have the full amount lying around for your first deposit, makes playing on PokerStars a truly pleasurable experience!
Here are the steps you need to complete to get up to speed in the PokerStars bonanza:
- First up, you have to register obviously. While you are registering, be sure to input the PokerStars marketing code. Entering flopturnriver (please refer to the included screenshots) in this section will ensure that all of FlopTurnRiver.com’s exclusivities will be available to you! These range from exclusive, private freerolls to exclusive money added tournament events.
- After you have registered your new account, you now have to proceed to deposit in order to take advantage of the first time deposit system worth up to an extra $600. PokerStars’ newly implemented multiple deposit method allows you to make up to 3 deposits within a 90 day period in order to take advantage of the full 100% up to $600 bonus if you do not have the initial $600 in one shot. Just make sure you enter the PokerStars bonus code Stars600 (please refer to the included screenshots) upon making your first deposit and any subsequent deposits that would still qualify for this bonus (first 3 deposits).
So once you deposit your $600 you now have to clear the bonus for the funds to be available in your account. This will be done by earning VPPs (VIP Player Points). A pleasant byproduct is that you will also earn FPPs (how much depends on your VIP level multiplier) at the same time, and these can be used to purchase stuff from the PokerStars VIP Store as well. You earn VPPs at a constant rate, depending on what type of game and at what limits you play, but the FPPs depend on how much VPPs you earn and what your VIP Level (e.g. BronzeStar, SilverStar etc.) is.
The $600 First Time Deposit bonus clears at a rate of 17x VPPS the amount deposited. This means that if you deposit the whole $600, you will have to earn 600 x 17 = 10,200 VPPs to get the bonus released into your account. The speed at which you can earn 10,200 is of course entirely dependent on what stakes, what games, and how much you play. For example, if you are a tournament player, you will earn 5 VPPs for every dollar spent in tourney fees. If you sign up for a $10+1 $20,000 Guaranteed tournament for instance, you will receive 5 VPPs. If you are a cash game player, the amount of VPPs earned per hand will depend on how much rake is collected from the hand. At stakes of $1 – $2 and lower, when the rake hits $.40 (total pot of $8) you collect 1 VPP just for being dealt cards even when you fold them and are not involved in the actual hand. When the rake reaches $2 at 6-max tables or $3 for all other games, you will get a second VPP. In limit games, a third VPP is awarded when the rake reaches $5 (which is bigger than the $3 max at NL/PL).
The actual bonus, rather than being released in one lump sum as other sites do, will released into your account in $10 increments. Every time you reach 170 VPPs, $10 will be cleared and released into your account for you to use immediately. You have 6 months after your very first deposit to clear your bonus before the uncleared portion expires.
Here’s an additional bonus though: earn the whole 10,200 VPPs in a single calendar month, and you will also be promoted to PlatinumStar VIP rank, which has a whole host of added benefits including more exclusive freerolls and easier FPPs accumulation for spending in the VIP store. So get on the grind quickly so you can clear the bonus and attain one of the premier VIP ranks, all in one shot!
But wait, there’s more: exclusive goodies obviously! By signing up with the marketing code of flopturnriver, you will receive a ton more than that juicy first time deposit bonus. You will also be able to take part in $1,000 total in freerolls and money added tournaments each and every month! That’s right; all this dead money can be won by playing in some or all of the many monthly events we have here at PokerStars:
- $500 freeroll – You must sign up to PokerStars through any of our banners or through our partner FlopTurnRiver.com. You must earn 200 FPP’s the month prior the freeroll, and you’re in! This event is held on the 14th of every single month!
- $500 money added – $5 buy-in and restricted for ONLY those who sign up to play on PokerStars with the marketing code flopturnriver and must have a register forum account at FlopTurnRiver.com. The password is published in the FlopTurnRiver.com forums!
To participate in all this goodness, you only need to input the flopturnriver PokerStars marketing code when asked, and Stars600 PokerStars Bonus code upon your first deposit (and subsequent two, if you did not max out the full $600 bonus in your first shot).
