      Hey guys

      I have gone through the pokerstars website & talk to few pokerstrategy members but i have some confusion regarding pokerstars FIRST DEPOSIT BONUS,therefore i need some help

      As pokerstars gives 100% first deposit bonus up to $600 & we can make up to three qualifying deposits in 90 days (up to a total of $600) & have 6 months time period to clear all bonus

      I would like to know if i deposit say $100 on 5th of jan2012 i will get pending bonus that will release in $10 increments every time i earns 170 VPPs for the next 6 months or until the bonus is fully cleared (17 x 100 = 1700 VPPs).

      Let say after achieving 1700 VPPS in one month i deposits another $200 on 5th feb 2012 i will get a further $200 of bonus (as the maximum bonus is $600). This $200 will release in $10 increments again every time i earns 170 VPPs. until the bonus is fully cleared i.e (17 x 200 = 3400 VPPS) or 6 months after the second deposit.

      Now here i would like to know whether i will get another six months from 5th feb or its only from my first deposit date i.e 5th jan ?

      Again if i achieve 3400 VPPS by say 15th march & i finally deposit furthur $ 300 will i get another 6 months from 15th march to clear $ 300 bonus(17 x 300 = 5100 VPPS) or pokerstars gives 6 months time period only from the day of first deposit ?

      Here i am confused about 6 months time restriction as on pokerstars website it says " This last instalment will last until the bonus is fully cleared or 6 months after the third deposit."

      I would also like to know while i will be clearing my first deposit bonus by getting VPPS(17 x 600 = 10200) will i also get $150 by way of VIP stellar rewards which i should get because i will have 10200 VPPS & can i also use my fpps to get cash bonus in that 6 months or those who get first deposit bonus by clearing VPPS dont get VIP stellar rewards ? ?

      Please help me out from this confusion

      Thanks

      Hey sim5sim5,

      as much as i remember, you will get six months from feb 5th(or whenever you make 2nd/3rd deposit). However, double checking this with PokerStars support will not hurt. Something might have changed since i made my first deposit, so i might be wrong :)

      As for the FPPs and Stellar, they are not affected by the FDB, so you will be able to get your Stellar rewards and use your FPPs as you want :)

      Hope this helps,
      Ignas

      Hey sim,

      Got your message and will ask David to clarify this for you tomorrow but as far as i'm concerned as of your first deposit, you will have 90 days time to make the remaining two deposits.

      You can clear the bonus in steps of $10, or, depending on your account currency, in steps of £10 or €10. To clear the bonus, you have to earn a certain amount of VIP Player Points (VPP). You collect them automatically while you play. The more you play, the more points you receive.

      Don't forget to use the bonus code STARS600 every time you deposit one part.

      Happy New Year
      Ingrid

      Hallo sim5sim5!

      You have wrote everything right.

      First deposit 05.01.2012 $100 --> The bonus will expire after 6 months or reaching the 1700 VPP.
      Second deposit 05.02.2012 $200 --> The bonus will start after earning the 1700 VPP for the first $100 deposit from you and will end after receiving 5100 VPP (1700VPP first deposit and 3400 VPP second) or after 6 month of cashing in --> 05.08.2012
      Third deposit 15.03.2012 $300 --> Look at second deposit. :D

      You have time to reach the points until the 15th of september.

      If you not reach the 5100VPP until 05.08.2012 the second deposit Bonus will expire and you will play for the third deposit. You can anly play one bonus at the time.
