Frequent Player Program Promotions
There is a reason PokerStars is recognized as the best online poker site for player promotions and giveaways. No matter how big your bankroll is, you're earning valuable points every time you play on PokerStars. For every qualifying real money hand you play, you earn Frequent Player Points (FPP credits) as part of our Frequent Player Program. After you earn, there's hardly any limit to what you can do with your points. Read below to learn more about earning and spending your points. Also, be sure to check out the PokerStars VIP Club!
How Do I Earn Frequent Player Points?
Accumulating Frequent Player Points is as easy as playing poker. For each qualifying raked real money poker hand you play on PokerStars, you earn FPP credits. Every time you play real money multi-table poker tournaments that has a tournament fee, you earn FPP credits. Every time you play a Sit & Go tournament that include a tournament fee, you earn FPP credits.
Important Note: FPP credits are credited at the end of a hand. So if you leave a table before the hand is completed, you may not receive the FPP(or FPP credits) for that hand. To ensure that you are properly credited, please "Sit Out" until the start of the next hand, and then leave the table.
1. Earn FPP credits for cash game play
First Frequent Player Point (FPP) is awarded for playing a hand in which the rake reaches:
- $0.40 for fixed limit poker games with stakes $1/$2 and lower
- $0.40 for NL/PL poker games with blinds $1/$2 and lower
- $0.40 for "1-on-1" poker games (this applies only to "1-on-1" tables, not to regular tables which have only two players seated)
- $1.00 for all other games
Second FPP is awarded for playing a hand in which the rake reaches:
- $2.00 for all 6-max tables (this doesn't apply for games being played 6- handed at 10/9/8 player tables - just 6-max tables)
- $3.00 for all other tables
Third FPP is awarded for playing a hand in which the rake reaches $5.00.
2. Earn FPP credits for tournament play
Five (5) FPP credits are awarded for each $1 in tournament fees paid.
For example, playing in a poker tournament with $20 buy-in and $2 tournament fee, each player will be awarded 10 FPP credits. *Note that partial Frequent Player Points are always rounded to the nearest whole number.
In a $5 buy-in Sit & Go poker tournament with only a $0.50 fee, 3 FPP credits (instead of 2.5) will be awarded to each player who played poker in the tournament.
In a $5 buy-in 4-player Heads-Up Sit & Go poker tournament with only a $0.25 fee, 1 FPP (instead of 1.25) will be awarded to each player who played poker in the tournament.
Please note that "FreePlay" tournaments do not award FPP credits. You can play poker for fake money at our free tables, but these poker games and tournaments are not part of the PokerStars FPP program.
