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 PartyPoker VIP system allows you to earn up to 22.2% rakeback per month for raking $1,000, 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 September 2016

In place of flat rakeback, PartyPoker has a VIP program – the Palladium VIP Club – offering cash rewards equivalent to up to 22.2% rakeback. Monthly promotions increase rewards value further.

New players signing up via rakeback.com are eligible for a larger deposit bonus of 100% up to $500, instead of the default $50. To claim your $500 bonus clear cookies, access the PartyPoker website via the links on this page and use bonus code RB500 when depositing.

The RB500 deposit bonus clears in manageable $10 increments for every 80 PartyPoints ($40 in rake) making it equal to 25% extra rakeback. Players have 120 days to clear their bonus.

Players earn 2 PartyPoints per $1 in rake, in either cash games or tournaments.

How Do I Attain VIP Levels?

To reach a VIP level, earn the required number of PartyPoints each month. The points requirements below came into effect March 1, 2015:

  • Gold and Palladium level VIPs can convert their points to cash in the PartyPoints store
  • Silver VIPs can purchase tournament tickets with their points

PartyPoker’s tournament schedule also includes weekly loyalty tournaments for players of each VIP level.

Points to Cash Conversion

The cost and equivalent rakeback value of each instant cash option in the PartyPoint store:

VIP Level Cash Points Cost Rake Cost Rakeback
Gold+ $50 1,000 $500 10%
Gold+ $100 1,500 $750 13.3%
Palladium $200 1,800 $900 22.2%
Palladium $500 4,500 $2,250 22.2%
Palladium $1,000 9,000 $4,500 22.2%

Points to Tickets Conversion

The cost and equivalent rakeback value of each tourney ticket in the PartyPoint store:

VIP Level Ticket Points Cost Rake Cost Rakeback
Silver+ $2 100 $50 4%
Silver+ $5 250 $125 4%
Silver+ $10 500 $250 4%
Silver+ $20 750 $375 5.3%
Gold+ $50 1,000 $500 10%
Gold+ $100 1,500 $750 13.3%
Gold+ $200 3,000 $1,500 13.3%
Gold+ $500 7,500 $3,750 13.3%

Players can make Silver VIP by raking a little under $1/day ($25 per month).

No More PartyPoker Bonuses?

Prior to March 2015 bonus options were available for purchase in the PartyPoints store, equivalent to up to 30% rakeback at Palladium.

PartyPoker’s rationale for removing bonuses was to improve the user experience by avoiding the ‘eternal grind’ of bonus clearing. Rather than make bonuses instant without lowering their value – as PokerStars did in the past – they were replaced by instant cash options equivalent to up to 22.22% rakeback.

While the top level of rewards has dropped 7.78%, Palladium is now 33% easier to attain, requirements lowered to 2,000 points per month instead of 9,000 per quarter. 22.22% rakeback can be achieved after 4.5 months of Palladium pace (an instant cash purchase for 9,000 points), compared to nearly 9 months under the old system (20,000 points to purchase a $3,000 bonus and 5,000 points to clear it).

Extra promotions, store sales, loyalty tournaments and happy hours have been promised to funnel money back into the poker ecosystem and more than compensate for the lowering of rewards value. Read Party_Rep’s full statement on the forums here.
