PokerStars has on average 25,000 cash game players online climbing up to 45,000 players at peak times, making it the World's biggest online poker room.
Put another way, approximately 42% of all online poker games are played at PokerStars.
The rakeback at PokerStars starts small for small stakes players, and rises to competitive 20-30% levels when you play mid stakes.
|Update Jan 1, 2016 - PokerStars has capped effective rakeback from the in-house VIP program to 30%, and removed the Supernova Elite level. From 2016 players will receive 10 - 30% rakeback, and FPPs have been replaced by Starscoin. Read more about the changes here.|
PokerStars doesn't allow affiliates to offer flat rakeback, instead all players receive the same volume based VIP benefits through PokerStars itself. Benefits of signing up through an affiliate include additional account support, and some kickbacks such as private freerolls or other minor promotions.
Sign up for a new PokerStars account and you will receive a first deposit bonus of up to $600 and a rakeback equivalent of up to 74.45% through the PokerStars VIP program. In order to have access to Rakeback.com's exclusive PokerStars promotions and freerolls simply open an account via the links on this page. No marketing code is required during account creation.
Check your monthly and yearly Rakeback totals on the all new PokerStars Rakeback Calculator. Zoom Poker is included. Also find out how many hands you need to play to reach Superova status.
PokerStars rakeback exists in the form of one of the most player friendly VIP programs anywhere. The more you play and the more rake you pay, the greater percentage rakeback you will receive. A Supernova on PokerStars can receive up to 51% effective PokerStars rakeback. The rakeback percentages on this page include cash only rewards, which we believe best represents rakeback.
Supernova Elite players receive the additional benefit of tournament entries including the WCOOP Main Event. Coupled with a higher FPP multiplier (5.0 vs. 3.5 for Supernova), Supernova Elite players benefit from up to 74.45% effective PokerStars Rakeback, though most players will fall somewhere in the 58-74% range.
* Rakeback equivalents will vary according to which VIP level players begin each calendar year on, due to having certain FPP multipliers for different time periods, and based on which games they play. Full-ring players receive a higher effective rakeback percentage than MTT, SNG and 6-max players
While you will not receive an actual PokerStars rakeback payment directly to your account, you can purchase cash bonuses through the PokerStars VIP Club using your FPP balance at any time of your choosing.
All PokerStars players also earn VIP Stellar Rewards for collecting milestone amounts of VPPs, and you only spend 1 FPP to collect these rewards. At the Supernova and Supernova Elite VIP levels, Milestone Cash Credits can also be claimed. These milestones work the same way as VIP Stellar Rewards but reward higher volume players. Finally, players can buy bonuses with their VPPs.
PokerStars offers the biggest selection of poker tournaments in the world. You can play in big guaranteed tournaments like the Sunday Million, online tournament series like the WCOOP and satellite into PokerStars sponsored live tournaments including the PokerStars Caribbean Adventure where you can play with Team PokerStars Pros. Make the final table and you will see yourself on PokerStars TV. You can even set up your own private games on PokerStars and play with your friends.
