The Stars Rewards programme has only been live since July 2017, but has allowed the operator to expand beyond its VIP programme for poker players, allowing it to cover all verticals. Now PokerStars has officially won Operator innovation of the year award for introducing the programmer, which caused an outburst of different emotions among the community, since the program is a direct copy of existing e-sports and other online games loyalty schemes plus it was designed to hide a massive cut of players bonuses from those players.

So far according to data, 85% of PokerStars players have opted into and used the programme.
Its original poker-focused programme, where players were rewarded for the volume of poker play, was particularly popular among skilled players who may have been turned off by the new, softer offering.

The press release explaining the reward reads:
"The fact that the operator has managed to balance retaining these players, as well as attracting new recreational customers, is an impressive feat. By awarding players chests – similar to loot boxes in video games – it is bringing in reward mechanics popular among a larger audience.

To date, industry loyalty programmes have mainly been a way to reward high spending players, but Stars Rewards is using it – as it should be – as a retention tool. It was a calculated risk, but it has paid off beautifully. "

It's not. Pokerstars has so much traffic that playing on PP is not worth it for spin and go players like me.

Researchers used brain scans to show that when straight men looked at pictures of women in bikinis, areas of the brain that normally light up in anticipation of using tools, like spanners and screwdrivers, were activated.
