      For promotions where you have to collect partypoints, thats partypoints Without multiplier or With the multiplier?


      I'm confused and can't find the wording to state which is the case anywhere on the site.

      well.. i gues for prmotion.. only basic party points counts..
      but i wonder about weekly bonus..and when you reach it.. and start collecting extra..only "normal" ones counts.. or allready with multiplyer o.o

      From what I understand of Party Poker's needlessly complex points system:

      You collect Party Points at a steady rate.
      You have a multiplier dependent upon your rank.
      You're points multiplied by your multiplier are your reward points.

      So only basic part points count I think.

      Would be sick for Aces or Deuces then, so every Party Promotion that does something with Points is considered standard party points (No multiplier)

      ;)

      From what I can make out reward points are only for buying stuff in the store which is either money or tournament entries. But since the party point conversion for the money and tournament buy-ins are the same, the money is the better option, and get it in $25 sums as that is best.

      The conversion rate isn't great to be honest anyway, on a SnG that takes 20% buy in fee, for every dollar you spend on the tournament you get 0.4 party points and it's 100 reward points for every dollar in the store.

      So that's 100/0.4=$250 dollars of buy-in money to get $1 out the store. Of course you divide that $250 buy your multiplier to convert it to reward points.

      The maximum multiplier is 8 so the best rate you can ever get is $31.25 worth of SnG games to $1 out of the store.

      I hope that made sense and explained why the loyalty system for party poker pretty much sucks.

      If you cash in your reward points you get to keep your basic points? So does this mean reward points is Partys equivalent of rakeback?

      Yeah you keep your party points, you can't spend or lose your party points and the actual amount you have is meaningless and I'm not even sure if you can check it.

      It's pretty much a rake back but not a very competitive one.

      And to make things even more complex remember your reward points are only fully released if you hit your weekly goal.

      i think party's points suck :/ being deuce (highest level) and getting 8x points only offers you 16% rakeback, i think.
