Paddy Power Poker VIP Program

Thanks to Paddy Power Poker's Special VIP Program, you can get extra moneyback. The program has 4 monthly and 2 quarterly levels and the higher levels you reach, the bigger percentage of your money you get back. ( reserves the right of miscalculations, for exact information on the VIP Program please consult the Paddy Power Poker website.)

The VIP Program is based on Paddy Power Poker Points (referred to as "points" from now on): €1 in generated rake or paid fee gets you 20 points.

The more points you earn, the higher levels you reach, therefore the better moneyback you will get in form of bonuses and points to cash offers.

The Paddy Power Poker VIP Levels are as follows:


Power One 0 €0 Monthly Level
Power Two 500 €25 Monthly Level
Power Three 3.000 €150 Monthly Level
Power Four 8.000 €400 Monthly Level
Max Power 60.000 €3.000 Quarterly Level
Max+ Power 300.000 €15.000 Quarterly Level

You can choose from several cash packages; the percentage of the moneyback is based on VIP levels and is according to the chart below. Cash is credited to your account instantly while bonuses have additional clearing requirements (but players keep accumulating points while clearing them). Bonuses are credited to your account once 25% of its "price" in points have been reached (i.e. bonus clearing requirements are only 25% of the bonus purchasing price in points).

You are moved to the next level as soon as you fulfill the necessary points requirement, you do not have to wait for next month or quarterly period, respective to the new level.

Points can be exchanged for cash or bonuses according to the following chart:

iPoker network

Operating since 2004, iPoker has for long been the number one operator among poker networks, thanks in large part to its user-friendly and ergonomic software.

The client was developed by Playtech and it features extras like 3D graphics, animated avatars and optional games available to the fans of casino entertainment and recreational players, like blackjack or video poker.

As far as professional and regular players are concerned, the following pros and cons can be listed, regarding the iPoker software:


- Ergonomic, easy to use
- Excels at managing multi-tabling
- With a single click, the client can be set not to post the next big blind

- Lobby information is updated slowly
- On rare occasions, the client might crash on weaker configurations
- Small card symbols
- Some players may find the notification sounds irritating
