The GoldStar VIP level is the 3rd of the PokerStars VIP Club level that a player can achieve by accumulating VPPs in real money cash games or tournaments. Once a player accumulates 3,000 VPPs in the month, they are automatically made into a GoldStar for the remainder of that month plus the next month.
The main advantage to becoming a GoldStar member is that it unlocks the 2x FPP multiplier that helps players accumulate FPPs faster. FPPs can be used to buy tickets into tournaments, buy electronic items or be turned in for a cash bonus. GoldStars (and above) have exclusive access to the $285 reward bonuses which costs 25,000 FPPs.
