Pacific Poker (888 Casino group) have announced the launch of their eagerly anticipated Players Rewards Program, an industry ground breaking loyalty scheme which ultimately earns Pacific Poker online players substantial cash backs every time they play a hand at multi award winning Poker room.

All real money players at Pacific Poker automatically become part of the rewards program. As they play at ring games, tournaments and 888 casino games at Pacific Poker they'll collect Status Points and Reward Points.

Pacific Poker clients automatically receive these new reward points when they play any money game on the site, so there is no need for online customers to fill in any forms or to apply for the Pacific Poker Rewards Program - players just visit the site, log in and play their usual games - but now every hand is worth more.

Itai Pazner, 888 Senior Vice President regions explains: "Every time a player plays a poker hand at Pacific Poker they are earning reward points which can be exchanged for cash. The more a player plays, the more reward points he earns and ultimately the bigger cash back he receives. Now every single hand is literally worth more than it was before."

Once customers finish playing their hand, Pacific Poker automatically credits their account with rewards points. Once a client has reached a minimum of $10 they are free to withdraw that amount into their actual bankroll or/and into their bank account. The only think to remember - you convert your reward points according to your monthly or yearly Status. The higher your status level the more cash you receive for every reward point, up to 36% max.

Rewards points can also be used to enter many of the daily & weekly online poker tournaments at Pacific Poker, and before long Pacific Poker players will be able to exchange their rewards points for merchandise such as iPods or high definition flat screen TVs at the soon to be launched Pacific Poker online shop.

888/Pacific Poker players will also be placed into new status groups; which groups players are placed into depends on how much they play. There are 6 statuses to climb in the Pacific Poker Rewards Program beginning at Bronze level and moving onto Silver, Gold, Platinum, VIP and VIP Diamond. The higher the status group the more reward points are earned - for example, when a player reaches the Gold Status he receives 4.5 reward points for every status point he collects - that's equivalen to the 9% cash back. Once in Platinum status the same player will earn 9 reward points for every status point or 18% cash back (or official 'rake back'). When you earn enough Status Points, you move up to the next monthly status (one of the first four, Bronze to Platinum), no matter if it is in the beginning, or end of the month. You keep the same status from that day on until the end of the next calendar month. For example, if you move up to Silver on June 12th, your status remains the same until July 30th.

Yearly Progress Bar: Tracks your Status Points accumulation for yearly statuses VIP and VIP Diamond. The yearly progress bar is only reset once a year on January 1, when accumulation starts again.

As well as earning more reward points for the higher the status a player is, there are also special poker events, exclusive promos, complementary gifts, and free rolls only available to the players with a definite status.

Pacific Poker/888 players will be able to see how many status points and reward points they have at any given moment, and in addition they will be able to track their status points accumulation by viewing the Status Progress Bar at the actual poker tables (see image). Click on the status icon in the poker lobby to view your personal rewards page with your current reward points. The new 888 Rewards Program supersedes the old Frequent Player Points scheme.
