PokerStars New Sign-up Bonus $600
PokerStars has finally decided to update its sign-up bonus offer, making it much more generous and easy to redeem. The new sign-up bonus (valid from August 4th 2009) gives players a 100% match on their first deposits, up to $600. The new bonus deal allows players to spread their sign-up bonus over 3 deposits, and the redemption period has been significantly extended as well. There has never been a better time for signing up at PokerStars. Those who are already registered will be able to take advantage of a re-deposit bonus with almost similar terms (the % match is only 50% though).
Players usually flock to PokerStars on account of the action the room offers. Come September, action is going to explode at PokerStars with the World Championship of Online Poker giving away $40 million in guaranteed prize-money. The show kicks off on September 3rd, and you’ll be able to qualify for various events through satellites and sub satellites for as little as $1 or 100 FPPs. The series is comprised of 45 events, among them 3 high roller ones.
The PokerStars sponsored European Poker Tour will be back as well. The Kiev and the Barcelona stops are the first two this season and qualifiers are already running. PokerStars offers a variety of alternative ways for securing your EPT seat, and satelliting your way into one of the events for a little as $2.22 or 111 FPPs is one of the cheaper solutions.
Season 6 of the EPT will include some of the old locations and it will have a few new ones added to the mix as well.
PokerStars is a truly global operation and therefore it doesn’t just sponsor US or Europe based events. The APPT has been growing in popularity in recent years and the circuit’s Macau stop is just around the corner, starting on Aug 24th.
Accumulating VPPs has become a lot easier at PokerStars. Special heads-up and six-max tables have been introduced to facilitate VP accumulation for those who aim to collect as many as possible for any reason. Certain full ring tables also feature this new VPP structure.
