PokerStars is upping the ante on their VIP Club, lowering the requirements for several exciting and exclusive benefits. Until the end of August, players can reach SilverStar VIP status by spending as little as an hour per day at any $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold’em table.

“As a SilverStar player,” the company states, “you will earn 50% extra Frequent Player Points (FPPs) for every cent you rake. That makes it easier than ever to save for great PokerStars merchandise and tournament entries!”

Players who attain SilverStar status will have several chances to snag some extra cash, as well. PokerStars will also be running a $30,000 VIP tournament each and every week, with an entry fee set at 100 FPPs. There will also be a monthly $100,000 VIP tournament, featuring an entry fee of 130 FPPs. Though the requirements will return to their normal levels once the month has ended, players who meet this month’s reduced goals will retain their VIP status through the end of September.

Players looking to get a jump start on their SilverStar status would do well to check out the WCOOP Mega Satellite. The $3 entry fee in this tournament, according to PokerStars, will bring players 20% of the way toward the VPP requirements.

In total, the buy-in for the WCOOP Mega Satellite is $33+$3. Set to kick off at 6:00 ET, this event will offer at least 250 seats to the 52nd event of the coming WCOOP. Event 52, for its part, features No Limit Hold’em gameplay with a guarantee of $400,000. For those looking to buy straight in, the entry fee will be $320.
