PokerStars Rewards. Built with The Players. For The Players.

We're giving you more of what you want: more value, more transparency, and more ways to win rewards. Introducing PokerStars Rewards.

Poker players can get up to 25% in rewards – and earn 100 reward points for every $1 paid in rake or fees across all tournaments and cash games including high stakes.

Plus, you can unlock Weekly Poker Challenges worth up to an additional 40% in rewards. Which means highest-level players can win up to 65% back with PokerStars Rewards. Play real money. Earn reward points. Get personalized rewards.

Play real money. Earn reward points. Get personalized rewards.

PokerStars Rewards makes it easy to win rewards tailored to you. Earn reward points every time you play real money games – or when your bet is settled (does not apply to bets settled through PokerStars Exchange).

Collect enough points to complete your progress bars, and you’ll unlock Chests loaded with personalized rewards based on the games you like to play – including StarsCoin you can use in our Rewards Store.

You can manage all your rewards in the ‘My Rewards’ area of your account.

Chests & Rewards

PokerStars Rewards has six levels, with each level rewarding a different Chest type of increasing value. The higher your Chest Level, the greater the rewards you'll win.

The number of reward points you need, the Chest value at each level, and the number of Chests required to upgrade to each level (in a rolling 28-day period) is shown below:

Chest Level Reward Points Requirements Number of Chests to Level Up Chest Value Poker Reward % Monthly Poker Challenges %
Blue 333 5 $0.50 15% Unavailable
Bronze 935 5 $1.50 16% Unavailable
Silver 2,850 7 $5 17.5% Up to 40%
Gold 10,800 7 $20 18.5% Up to 40%
Diamond 37,500 10 $75 20% Up to 40%
Black 100,000 N/A $250 25% Up to 40%

If 28 days pass and you have not won a Chest, your progress bar will reset and you’ll be moved down a level, where Chests will be easier to win but will contain a lower value of rewards.

How to Earn Reward Points

You’ll earn reward points at different rates, depending on your gaming activity:

  • Poker: Players earn 100 reward points for every $1 paid in fees for scheduled tournaments, and 100 reward points for every $1 paid in rake in Zoom or cash games or other tournament fees (130 reward points for every £1, and 110 points for every €1).
  • Casino: Reward points are earned at the point of wagering. Click here for a breakdown of earn rates by game type, as well as how to earn redemption points playing Casino games (to clear bonuses).
    • Non-USD bets are converted to USD based on the mid-market exchange rate for reward point calculation purposes.
  • Sports: Reward points are earned when a bet is settled. For single bets, players earn 1.1 reward points for every $1 wagered. For multiple/accumulator bets, players earn 3.1 reward points for every $1 wagered.
    • Bets made in non-USD currencies are converted to USD based on the mid-market exchange rate (as per for reward point calculation purposes.
    • Reward points are not awarded for bets that are cashed out.
    • Bets made via the PokerStars Exchange do not earn reward points.

Chest Level Exchange

If you are at a higher level than Blue Chest, you will be able to exchange your progress bar for a lower level Chest. If you are eligible to exchange your progress bar, you will see the option available to you in ‘My Rewards’.

Monthly Poker Challenges*

Reach Silver Chest Level or higher to unlock Monthly Poker Challenges which give you the opportunity to earn additional rewards should you reach your points target for the month. The points target and reward will be personalised to you based on your playing history and can vary each calendar month. The percentage reward available from Monthly Poker Challenges can range from 10% to up to 40% of rake and tournament fees paid and again will vary based on your playing history with our long-term winning poker players likely to receive a 10% Monthly Poker Challenge instead of the maximum 40% Monthly Poker Challenge that will be available to the majority of our players.

Just head to your Challenges Window and discover your redemption points target. Then earn the points you need within the month to unlock your reward which will be paid instantly.

You earn 5 redemption points for every $1 you pay in rake or fees across all tournaments and cash games. And you’ll still earn reward points towards your next PokerStars Rewards Chest while you play.

*Monthly Poker Challenges are not available to players in Austria.
