      hello

      please help me, i am too stupid to understand

      so, i hear how great pokerstars VIP bonuses are and that players get a lot of money in bonuses but when looking at their page where they explain what the bonuses are i just don't see the bags of $, the only worthwhile things would be tournament entries

      so could someone be so kind as to explain how big the cash bonuses are (just an idea, not the exact amount)? excluding potential money you could win through all the freerolls and satellites, i got that part

      You get VPP which turns into FPP when you rake. With those FPP you can buy items (casg/electronics/tickets etc) from the store.

      The FPP vs $ ones are here:

      Hello needagun.

      If you click on the link above, posted by Ragney, there's a list for the size of each Cash bonus and how many FPP it costs to buy, as well as which VIP status is required to do so.

      Thanks ragney for helping.

      If there's still anything you're wondering about, please let us know and we will try to help.

      Regards,
      Richard

      You need to buy them with FPP. To gain FPP you need to rake, aka play real money games.

      You play and pay rake. By raking you get VPPs and FPPs. VPPs are constant and amont of FPPs depends on your Pokerstars status (BronzeStar, SilverStar, GoldStar and PlatinumStar...). If you are Bronze you recieve 1 FPP per 1VPP. Silver 1.5FPP per 1VPP...
      So, your status gained by your monthly rake dictate how fast you collect FPPs.

      You can use your FPPs to buy stuff in PS store. You can exchange them for cash, tournament tickets...

      It is very well explained at their website.
