Partypoker expands cashback program
Major platform partypoker is putting its players first by once again revamping its cashback program to welcome more of its clientele into the points system. Announced in its official blog site, the fresh rewards program is intended to give “players the opportunity to earn extra cashback for less rake” and will feature a new points structure catering to its plethora of game variants. While players can earn up to 55% weekly cashback, the main adjustment is the site’s expansion to lowering the minimum amount of rake needed to start receiving rewards from the existing $20/€20 to as low as $3/€3. Additionally, a new rewards program for Diamond Club players will also be part of the upcoming rollout with more details to follow.
Vadim Soloveychik, partypoker Director, said “The main idea of our revamped cashback program is to make it more accessible to players by reducing the minimum rake requirement to enter the program and to improve players’ ability to interact with the program and track their performance.”
“We want to bring the best possible experience to new and leisure players. It is also vitally important for us to ensure we keep a balanced player base, offering rewards to players of all levels.”
The initial rollout of the new cashback program will only be available on both partypoker.fr and partypoker.es platforms with all other non-US markets eyed for a full launch later in the year. US poker brands under parent company Entain as well as BetMGM Ontario however, will continue to follow its own existing cashback programs.
