word type: noun
- The second level of the PokerStars VIP program that awards a 50% FPP multiplier as well as a special reward bonus and access to VIP tournaments.
The SilverStar VIP level is the 2rd of the PokerStars VIP Club level that a player can achieve by accumulating VPPs by playing real money ring games or tournaments. Once a player accumulates 1,200 VPPs in the month, they are automatically made into a SilverStar for the remainder of that month plus the next month.
The main goody that becoming a SilverStar member is that it unlocks is the 50% 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. SilverStar (and above) have exclusive access to the $50 reward bonuses which costs 5,000 FPPs.
