888poker Reveals Upgraded Loyalty Program
888poker, the online poker room operated by 888, has announced that it will launch its upgraded loyalty program on March 28, 2016. The redesigned 888poker Club will completely revamp its mode of operation and move away from the rakeback to system to a level system which includes challenges and tokens.
Loyalty members will be rewarded with points for completing challenges in 888poker, as well as playing casino games and wagering via the 888 Sportsbook. Once a certain number of points are collected, players will move to the next level and be rewarded with Gold Tokens which can be redeemed for prizes. Moving up five levels will reward you with a Club scratchcard.
Unlike most online poker rooms with VIP programs which require players to maintain their level, players will never drop down levels even if they play less poker or casino games or place fewer bets in the sportsbook. Players who are currently eligible for cash back will have these commitments honoured by the site.
888poker reassured their players about the changes in the following post: “We’d like to assure you that despite these major changes, 888poker will fully honour its cashback commitment to all players, including its VIPs, who are currently entitled to yearly cash back in the existing rewards plan.”
“Moreover, any reward points players accumulated in the current rewards program will be automatically transferred to Gold Tokens, with equal value, in the new 888poker Club and will continue to be redeemable any time.”
“The cashback available in our current rewards program will likely not correspond to that offered in the new 888poker Club.”
The new VIP program is expected to appeal primarily to recreational players of which there are many at 888poker and will be available by the end of the month.
