Hi all, I saw at FPP pro that gold star is getting 19.2% + Stellar % (9% after 10k VPP FR) rakeback. so that should be 29%. How exactly is that calculated, and what stellar % you add ? Is it the way I calculated? if not is it the max you reached or which one ?
Lets say you play untill 12.5k VPP so thats 25k FPP and you buy 300\$ bonus. To have 12.5k VPP you have to rake around 12500/6 (6VPP @ FR / 1\$ rake) = 2090\$ * .29 = 606\$. so this way you get around 14% RB and if I add the stellar reward untill 15k VPP you get 24% RB.

Please guys tell me how you get here 20% or 29% with the stellar. Also what tournaments a gold/platinium should play on stars (cheap FPP buyin, free buyins for gold/plat)

Thank you.

They use the FPP value of the \$4k bonus to calculate that. Which is considerably more than the \$300 bonus FPP value.

To find your rakeback equivelant, add the appropriate percentage for your game type and VIP Level from the first table to the percentage that matches your expected yearly VPPs in the "Stellar Milestones" table.

 code: ``` SNG/MTT/SH FR Bronze Star 8.8% + Stellar % 9.6% + Stellar % Silver Star 13.2% + Stellar % 14.4% + Stellar % Gold Star 17.6% + Stellar % 19.2% + Stellar % Platinum Star 22.0% + Stellar % 24.0% + Stellar % Stellar Milestones VPPs SH/SNG FR VPPs SH/SNG FR 750 7.3% 8.0% 30,000 6.4% 7.0% 1,500 7.3% 8.0% 35,000 6.3% 6.9% 2,250 7.3% 8.0% 40,000 6.2% 6.7% 3,000 7.3% 8.0% 45,000 6.1% 6.7% 4,000 6.9% 7.5% 50,000 6.6% 7.2% 5,000 11.0% 12.0% 60,000 6.4% 7.0% 10,000 8.2% 9.0% 70,000 6.3% 6.9% 15,000 7.3% 8.0% 80,000 6.2% 6.7% 20,000 6.9% 7.5% 90,000 6.1% 6.7% 25,000 6.6% 7.2%```
