Benefit Points (BPs) are used to determine your Level in Elite Benefits. You will earn BPs by playing in raked ring games, and by paying tournament fees. For every Benefit Point you earn, you will also earn Player Points. The number of Player Points you can earn for every Benefit Point depends on your Level in the Elite Benefits.
Note that while you earn Player Points for every Benefit Point earned, you do not earn Benefit Points for every Player Point earned. This means if you earn extra Player Points through a promotion, or through a Level bonus, you will not receive extra Benefit Points. You can earn extra Player Points without earning Benefit Points, but the only way to earn Benefit Points is to play real-money poker.
Yes, but if you keep playing the way you have been playing, there is no reason to lose it. Your Rounder, Grinder and Veteran Level last until the end of the calendar month that follows the month in which you qualified. For example, if you have earned 3,000 BPs from May 1st through 20th, you will achieve Grinder Level for June. Your status will last until the end of June. If you have earned enough Benefit Points in June, you will keep your status. Or if you have earned enough Benefit Points for the next status, we will move you up a Level.
Yes, you will earn PPs and bonuses according to whatever Level you are during that month.
We keep track of both your monthly and your yearly Benefit Points. We reset your monthly Benefit Point counter at the start of every month, so you will need to earn the same number of Benefit Points you did last month to maintain your Level in the program (or earn more to move up a Level). Your yearly Benefit Point counter tracks all Benefit Points earned since January 1st. Your yearly tally is used to determine entry into our Top-Tier (Legend) AND to help you earn cash rewards through our Achievement Rewards.
Yes they do. When you check your Level, you will see two BP counters—a monthly and a yearly one. The monthly counter is reset on the first of each month. The yearly counter resets every January 1st. We use the monthly one to determine your Level month-to-month, and the yearly one to determine whether you have achieved Legend status at the end of the year.
With the introduction of Elite Benefits, we needed to embrace a new ratio for earning points. In order to do this, your existing points balance needed to be adjusted. In the old system, you earned points at a rate of 100 FPPs for every $1 generated in rake. In the new system points are earned at 5.5 points for every $1 you contribute to the rake, using the weighted contributed rake methodology.
If you have 1,500 FPPs in the old system, they will be converted into a total of 82.50 Benefit Points.
RakeBack players are not allowed to enjoy the benefits of our new Loyalty Program. If any RakeBack player decides to, a one-time account conversion to the loyalty program is possible, simply contact [email protected] , we will be more than glad to help in the transition, and start getting rewarded based on weighted contributed rake.
By clicking the “Rewards” tab in the poker client, there you’ll find your level and other valuable information.
No, Benefit Points are used exclusively to track your Level. To buy items from the store, you will need to use your Player Points.

Yes, they will expire if you have not earned at least one Player Point within one calendar year. All it takes is one Player Point to keep your Player Point account active, so you will not have to worry as long as you love to play poker.
