PokerStars is celebrating the New Year by giving away free VPPs to every single one of its customers, but you need to act fast in order to collect yours because this special offer is only available until 11:59 pm ET on January 8, 2014.
To get your hands on up to 1,000 free VPPs all you are required to do is opt-in via the Star Code “JUMPSTART” before 11:59 pm on January 8, 2014 and your VPPs will receive a boost as per the table below. The higher your VIP level at the time of using the Star Code, the more Jumpstart VPPs you will receive.
|Jumpstart VPP Boost||VIP Status at Time of Opt-In|
|1,000 VPPs||PlatinumStar and higher|
Please note: No FPPs are awarded with this promotion, only VPPs. For clarification on the difference between VPPs and FPPs, please check the PokerStars help pages.
You can maximise the value of this promotion by attempting to climb to the next highest VIP level before the clock shows 11:59 pm ET on January 8, that way you receive more VPPs! Once you are ready to claim your free PokerStars VPPs, head to your PokerStars account and enter the Star Code “JUMPSTART” and your free VPPs will be credited shortly after.
