Yachting Poker Rakeback
Yachting Poker previously offered weekly 30% rakeback - this is no longer available, however the newly introduced Yachting Poker VIP Club offers a rakeback equivalent of 25% for raking just €2 per day. With such a low volume requirement and returns of 25% at every VIP levels, it's essentially flat rakeback. An easy additional 10% can be earned through promotions.
Players earn 100 VIP Player Points (VPPs) per €1 in rake. VPPs are reset to zero at the end of each month.
Depending on play volume each month, players qualify for one of six VIP levels as shown in the table below. Players also receive a 'VPP Booster' award of additional VPPs at the start of the next month, to make maintaining VIP statuses easier.
|VIP Level||VPPs / Mo||Rake / Mo||VPP Boost / Mo|
In addition to the monthly VPP boost, players are only required to stay at a given VIP level for 10 months of the year. Players then remain at that level for the following 2 months, allowing Yachting Poker players time for a holiday without losing their VIP status.
Each VIP level above Soldier also qualifies players for an exclusive VIP freeroll, with GTD prizepools of €500, €800, €1,000, €1,500 and €2,000 respectively. VIP freerolls run on the last Friday of the month.
While VPPs have no intrinsic value - only used to track VIP level and reset monthly - players also earn FPPs while they play. FPPs can be converted to instant cash on demand within the Yachting Poker client.
2 Frequent Player Points (FPPs) are awarded per €1 in rake paid (cash games and/or tournaments).
There is no multiplier relationship between VPPs and FPPs (as on PokerStars) however the higher a player's VIP level is, the more valuable FPPs become as shown in the table below.
|Cash Amount||VIP Level|
|€5||100 FPPs||50 FPPs||40 FPPs||40 FPPs||-||-|
|€10||-||100 FPPs||80 FPPs||80 FPPs||-||-|
|€25||-||-||200 FPPs||200 FPPs||200 FPPs||200 FPPs|
|€50||-||-||400 FPPs||400 FPPs||400 FPPs||400 FPPs|
|€100||-||-||-||800 FPPs||800 FPPs||800 FPPs|
|Monthly Max Conversion||€5||€50||€125||€250||€600||€2,000|
|Rake / Mo for Max Conversions||€50||€250||€500||€1,000||€2,400||€8,000|
Soldier VIP level is equivalent to 10% monthly rakeback, while all higher levels equal 25% rakeback. Players exchange FPPs for cash using the Convert FPPs button in the Yachting Poker cashier. Funds are instantly available to play with or withdraw.
