Our offer at WPT Poker
We've created an overview so that you can see what value you get when you play at WPT Poker. The overview is designed especially for VIP players who are capable of creating more than $1,600 rake per month.
2 rakeback examples
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 WPT Poker you need to earn 7,500 StrategyPoints which equals $1,667 Rake in one calendar month.
|Main Factors of Rakeback||Example 1|
12 Gemstones in 2012
50 Gemstones in 2012
|Per month||Per year||Per month||Per year|
|Rake and fee||$1,667||$20,000||$6,944||$83,333|
| WPT Poker VIP System|
|WPT Poker VIP level||Palladium||Palladium Elite|
|WPT Poker VIP reward||$6,000||$33,333|
|Rakeback VIP system||30%||40%|
|Gemstone Promotion|| |
|Gemstone Rewards for 2012||$2,200||$10,000|
|Bonus per Gemstone (Jan. and Feb.)||2x $150 = $300||8x $150 = $1,200|
|Rakeback Gemstone Promotion||12.5%||13.4%|
These figures are based on the assumption that the player consistently raked the same amount over the year and therefore:
• Achieved the respective VIP status on WPT 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 main factors of rakeback
WPT Poker VIP System
Example 1: Earning 1 Gemstone per month will give you the Palladium VIP level. You can get 30% rakeback by buying the $3,000 bonus from the WPT Poker VIP shop.
Example 2: Earning at least 4 Gemstones per month will give you the Palladium Elite VIP level (the highest VIP level at WPT Poker). You can use your WPT Points to buy the $20,000 bonus, which equals 40% rakeback.
Note: The VIP reward bonuses need to be cleared when you buy them which requires extra play.
The WPT Points can be saved and spent on the $75,000 bonus which is worth 50% rakeback. To do that, you need to create $150,000 rake which equals approximately 70 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 WPT Poker you need to earn 7,500 StrategyPoints which equals $1,667 Rake in one calendar month (e.g. February 1 - February 29, NOT February 15 - March 15). Bonus Points do not count for Gemstones.

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's possible to get the $500 payout prize.
