PokerStars $600 Deposit Bonus 2015

The unbelievable has finally occurred – the world’s largest online poker room, PokerStars, has finally increased its first-time deposit bonus to a nice 100% up to $600. Up until now, PokerStars has always offered an undeniably miniscule welcome bonus of only 100% up to $600. We also give our players a special $1000 Freeroll Ticket if you use our PokerStars Marketing Code PSA2348

Now is a great time to play at PokerStars, even with them pulling out of the US market, there is still a ton of action on a daily basis. You literally never have to wait for a game or table to fill. To make the bonus even more enticing, players don’t have to claim the entire bonus all at once. The first three qualifying deposits made within your first 90 days of membership will continue to award the 100% bonus until you’ve reached the highest $600 reward.

2015 PokerStars Bonus Example

For example, make an initial deposit of $200 to receive $200 bonus. Do this again the next month, depositing $200, and again before your 90 days is up, and you’ll still receive the full $600 welcome bonus at PokerStars.

PokerStars VIP Bonus Program March 2015

The bonus is cleared by collecting VPPs, player points awarded for playing raked ring games and participating in paid tournaments. Every 170 points earned instantly releases $10 of the bonus into your cash account.

Players do not have to complete clearing the first deposit bonus in order to take advantage of another. The new bonus will be added to your pending bonus account. Once the first bonus is cleared in full, all points will start going towards the next bonus.

Each bonus has a 6 month (183 day) expiration period. So if you take advantage of all three first deposit bonuses (i.e. Deposit $200 three times within first 90 days), the expiration for each bonus segment will have its own 183 day expiration period, making it much easier to clear all bonuses.

A player may not request a withdrawal at any time before the bonus is cleared. Doing so will result in forfeiture of any pending bonus, and void the ability to earn more of the welcome bonus on subsequent deposits within the first 90 days.

How to Earn PokerStars VPPs

VPPs are awarded for raked ring games and paid tournaments. Every $1 paid in tournament fees (just the fees, not the buy-ins) is worth 5 VPPs. A $50+$5 tournament would award 25 VPPs. Partial points are also awarded for uneven dollar amounts.

Earning VPPs in ring games is slower, and can be more difficult for micro-stakes players. The following chart shows how most VPPs are awarded at PokerStars. Note that some cash games may vary depending on the number of players, type of game and stakes involved.

The first VPP is received when playing a hand where the rake reaches:

  • $0.40 in FL games with $1/$2 stakes and below
    $0.40 in NL/PL games with $1/$2 blinds and below
    $1 for all other game types

The second VPP is received when playing a hand where the rake reaches:

  • $2 at 6-max tables
    $3 at all other tables

The third VPP is received when playing a hand where the rake reaches $5
