How big is PartyPoker?

Since the inception of Party Poker in 1997 their game client has been downloaded over 30 million times. This figure makes it the most prolific online poker site in the world and the reason why it attracts peak figures of over 2,000 players.

Is it good value?

The new PartyPoker VIP program allows you to earn up to 40% rakeback per week for raking $1,200, before adding extra value from monthly promotions. Alongside that every new player gets a $500 deposit bonus equivalent to an extra 25% rakeback until cleared.

 

Party Poker Rakeback

VIP information on this page is accurate as of May 2017

PartyPoker has revamped their VIP program and players can now earn up to 40% effective rakeback, in the form of weekly cashback for points. The new loyalty program began May 22, 2017.

The new PartyPoker VIP program is very similar to flat rakeback – no bonuses to clear, simply rake a certain amount and receive 20 – 40% cashback directly into your account balance.

PartyPoker Cashback

Players now earn 1 point per $1 rake paid in cash games or tournaments.

Rake Per Week Cash You Get Effective Rakeback
$25 – $100 $5 – $20 20%
$150 – $500 $37.50 – $125 25%
$600 – $1000 $180 – $300 30%
$1200 – $2000 $480 – $800 40%

Rake $25 per week (25 points) or more and you qualify for cashback. Cash is paid into your balance every Monday.

This is a significant improvement over the current VIP program, which was capped at 22.2% cashback.

Existing Points Will Expire

Spend your PartyPoints before the launch of the VIP program May 22nd. ‘Party_Rep’ has confirmed on the TwoPlusTwo forums that points will expire and start over.

Tournament dollars have no expiry date so that’s an alternative to spending them – convert them to T$.

Opt In

Players must opt in on the PartyPoker website each week to take part. The cashback week period runs between 00:00 CET Mondays to 23:59 CET Sundays.

If you opt in mid-week current points totals will still count towards cashback.

Update – opt in is planned to be removed so that cashback is automatic.

Palladium Elite Returns

The Palladium Elite VIP level will be reinstated although by invitation only and details have not yet been revealed.

One would assume that will be equal to 50% rakeback as it was prior to Apr 1, 2013.

Tiered Cashback

The exact cashback system is below. If your weekly points falls below a level, you’ll receive the cashback and effective rakeback of the previous level. So make sure you exactly hit each target.
