We've created an overview so that you can see what value you get when you play at Ladbrokes Poker. The overview is designed especially for VIP players who are capable of creating more than \$2,900 rake per month.

[SIZE=14][B]2 rakeback examples[/B][/SIZE]

Our new Gemstone VIP promotion has kicked off, and we have designed a detailed breakdown to show you how it all works.

The figures are based on two examples:
Example 1 - Earn 12 Gemstones in 2012 (1 Gemstone each month)
Example 2 - Earn 50 Gemstones in 2012 (at least 4 Gemstones each month + 2 additional Gemstones)

In order to get 1 Gemstone on Ladbrokes Poker you need to earn 7,500 StrategyPoints which equals \$2,906 Rake in one calendar month.

 Main Factors of Rakeback Example 112 Gemstones in 2012 Example 250 Gemstones in 2012 Per month Per year Per month Per year Rake and fee \$2,906 \$34,875 \$12,109 \$145,313 StrategyPoints 7,500 90,000 31,250 375,000 Ladbrokes Poker VIP System 30% Rakeback \$872 \$10,463 \$3,633 \$43,594 Gemstone Promotion Gemstones 1 12 4 50 Gemstone Rewards for 2012 \$2,200 \$10,000 Bonus per Gemstone (Jan. and Feb.) 2x \$150 = \$300 \$8x \$150 = \$1,200 Rakeback Gemstone Promotion 7.2% 7.7% Top250 Promotion Top250 Payout \$200 \$2,400 Summary Total Rewards \$12,963 \$57,194 Total Rakeback 37.2% 39.4%

These figures are based on the assumption that the player constantly raked the same amount over the year and therefore:
• Achieved the respective VIP status on Ladbrokes Poker
• Finished in the Top250 promotion every month (based on example 2)
• Earned as many Gemstones in January/February as the rest of the year

The VIP rewards are calculated based on average numbers.

Earning 1 Gemstone each month will result in you reaching highest status in the Ladbrokes Poker Player Club. This will entitle you to 30% rakeback which is automatically paid to your account twice a month.

Gemstones
A Gemstone is worth between \$150-\$200, depending on the total amount of Gemstones you earn in 2012.

In order to get 1 Gemstone on Ladbrokes Poker you need to earn 7,500 StrategyPoints which equals \$2,906 Rake in one calendar month (e.g. February 1 - February 29, NOT February 15 - March 15). Bonus Points do not count for Gemstones.

Bonus per Gemstones
In January and February 2012 you will receive an additional \$150 cash for each Gemstone on top of your year-end reward for Gemstones.

This means that they'll be worth up to \$350 each! We'll even pay the additional cash amount in March 2012, so you won't have to wait until January 2013 for your full reward.

Note: You can get even more rakeback over the course of the year if you get bonus per Gemstones in January and February.

Top250 Promotion
Each month we reward our top grinders by giving away \$80,000 in our exclusive rake race. If you earn approximately 31,000 StrategyPoints per month, you will get a cash prize of \$200 each month.

Note: These figures are based on the average results of the Top250 promotion in 2011 and are not guaranteed. However, these numbers are conservative estimations since the \$200 prize was available starting at an average of approximately 22,000 StrategyPoints per month in the previous Top250 rankings. With 31,000 StrategyPoints it is even possible to get the \$500 payout prize.
