      FPPs are not in any way connected to how much you wage. It is based on the amount of rake that you directly contribute.

      An exaggerated example: You are the small blind and you decide to push all-in $100 into the big blind. He calls. You both wagered $200 but you still only get .5 FPPs. (The rake cap for two players at $100 NL is $1 and since you only contributed half of that you only get .5 FPPs.)

      (I have no clue how this will all change with the new rewards program.)

      Well, since today I can't even connect to their online chat support due to some problems with SSL, so why even bother... just play and hope for a blue envelope when you clear bonus. Pacific style. :D

      You might not be right. That's what their support told me:

      Since you started playing and wagering, you have accumulated 17 points, meaning you have bet $170 in total up to now. In order to clear the $50 bonus granted to your account, you still need to wager additional $4816.03. You can check this information in the cashier points section, in order to determine how many accumulated points are extracted from the total wagering requirements.

      Primzi, you're talking about Bonus Points - these are the points you see counting down on bar on a top-left side of tables. FPP could be calculated on a rake of tokyo says so. I never remembered to ask support about that despite the fact we chat quite often. :D

      Well, that's strange. This is what they have on their website:



      http://www.pacificpoker.com/en/promotions/all-promotions--7,1.htm

      And they have a really devilish signature on live support now - 'come and join our casino, you can play all casino games with money you earn on poker' :s_evil: Yeah right. :rolleyes:

      I got my starting capital there via PS and got that bar showing progress to 800 Bonus Points when I'll get additional 100$. It shouldn't be much different now for you guys who registered now... Oh, well, Pacific... :s_confused:

      This seems to be the site that lets you know how to earn points...

      It looks like you get 2 bonus points for each $1 in rake you produce

      http://www.pacificpoker.com/en/comp_point.htm?lang=en

      It's only your contributed rake though, so a bit like tokyoaces said... have a look though and see what you think. :s_grin:

      To clear the 100$ you must collect 800 FPPs (Frequent Player Points) within 120 days. You will then receive your additional $100.


      And support said it's 1 FPP per 10$ wage. That's how it used to be. It might change when the new rewards system is implemented, but I still have no idea how to find that status points counter or bar -.-

      Well... maybe they've upgraded it so now you have to ask support everytime instead of just taking a look at progress bar. :D

      They are wrong. It has never been that way.

      I have bonus for signing up via PS.com and Primzi did the same, the only difference is it was my 'first' poker room and Primzi signed up as a part of a special offer, but other of that it's all the same. I really see no reason why he wouldn't have status bar as he wants to clear those 100$ the same as I do...

      If you bothered to check their support FAQ you would learn that:


      How many Status Points do I get per buy-in each time I play?

      For every $1 you spend on a rake or tournament fee, you will receive 2 Status Points.
      It says nothing about wagers at all. So yes in this case I believe what support says over what you think support told you.

      Maybe it's time to facepalm yourself. :D

      maybe it's time for you to grow up and pay some respect to the people who contribute to pokerstrategy a bit more than you do? bronze...
