Exclamation Partypoker rakeback changes - 40% rakeback in cash from May 22nd

Latest news:

https://www.partypoker.com/whats-goi...-cashback.html

It starts on 22nd May, and here’s how it works:

Opt-in every week in the ‘Rewards’ section of the client.
Earn points by playing poker. You’ll receive 1 point for every $1 of rake you generate.
Collect points as you play. The more points you collect, the higher the rakeback percentage you’ll receive—up to 40%!
Use your cash back reward. Cash is paid out every Monday directly into your partypoker account.




GG Stars.

Fix the software and it very well could be GG. They've been slowly building a buzz again. Great news though.

Re: Partypoker rakeback changes - 40% rakeback in cash from May 22nd

excellent news, partypoker has made many good changes this year in the mtts and now more and more rewards / rakeback for cash - they know that making the customer happy = good for online poker, not treat your customers like gum on the bottom of your shoe and expect they will stick around like amayastars enjoys doing

It is weekly, it is 1.2k points to reach 40%, and 600 points for 30% so it is easy for active players.

It seems like everyone is taking advantage of the PS decline. Even 888 is apparently rolling out some big changes to make poker great again (for the regs & recs).

I hope this can somehow get communicated to the recreationals as well & explained how rake affects them so that they can deposit on party as well, nice move party, hope it works out for the best.

Ah yes, the old "Gee, was that an affiliate link? I had no idea, I just copied it out of an email!" defense. The thing is, if that's what you had done, the affiliate code would have displayed in your post, rather than being hidden in the hyperlink, the way you posted it. And to think I gave you a second chance after your spam ban. Sigh.

Nice catch, incrowd, thanks.

The higher rakeback will probably be offset by tougher games as all the grinders move over to Party.

Re: Partypoker rakeback changes - 40% rakeback in cash from May 22nd

seriously, if you guys could just put together smooth software i think youd see a hefty migration of players your way.

the main appeal of stars at this point is their A+ software. beyond that, theyre the devil

Re: Partypoker rakeback changes - 40% rakeback in cash from May 22nd

Looks like Party is gonna make Stars their ***** by employing their previous bonus system, which Amaya claimed doesn't work anymore in the current poker ecosystem?

I get the incentive to avoid paying if people forget to opt-in, but seriously, many players, recreationals and regulars alike, are gonna be pretty bad if they forgo weekly bonus by human error. Just make it automatic.
