word type: noun
- The fourth level of the PokerStars VIP Club that awards a 2.5x FPP multiplier as well as a specific level rewards.
The PlatinumStar VIP level is the 4th level of the PokerStars VIP Club that a player can achieve by accumulating VPPs by playing real money ring games or tournaments. Once a player accumulates 7,500 VPPs in the month, they are automatically made into a PlatinumStar for the remainder of that month plus the next month.
The main goody that becoming a PlatinumStar unlocks is the 2.5x 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. PlatinumStars (and above) have exclusive access to the $650 reward bonuses which costs 50,000 FPPs.
