History of Changes

  • May 1, 2013 – Sky Poker switched to a new loyalty scheme ‘Sky Poker Rewards’ replacing the previous ‘Cash for Points’ across the board program. As shown above the main difference under the new system is simply that high volume players (10,000 Poker Points or more per calendar month) earn flat rakeback rather than having to cash in their points.
