Run It Once does not offer a VIP scheme as such, instead it returns 51 percent of the rake taken back to the players via something it calls "Splash The Pot".

Splash The Pot uses Run It Once's Random Number Generator (RNG) to randomly select a hand to be "splashed". The RNG then selects a reward of up to 1,000 big blinds that are added, or splashed, into the pot as an ante for that hand. Whoever wins the hand, scoops the pot and the added Splash The Pot bonus money.

Each and every hand has the chance of activating the Splash The Pot feature and you'll know when it hits because your table glows gold, the pot size turns gold, and chips fall onto the table!

The chance of Splash The Pot being activated is based on the size of the pot from the previous hand, so playing for bigger pots (in relation to your stakes) means more rewards are given out.
