Stars Rewards program allows you to get the appropriate rewards for taking part in all products PokerStars is offering. You will do this by earning the required number of Rewards Points in order to complete the progress bar and you can win a Chest full of prizes, as well as tickets and StarsCoins.

The Chests which can be collected anytime contain rewards specially tailored for you and in relation to the activities you like the most. The rewards vary from StarsCoins to tickets and other different items and can be managed in “My Stars” section of the account. 

Stars program includes 6 Chest types, as follows:

  • Red Chest : rewards up to €50
  • Blue Chest : rewards up to €100
  • Bronze Chest : rewards up to €250
  • Silver Chest : rewards up to €500
  • Gold Chest : rewards up to €750
  • Platinum Chest : rewards up to €1000

When you got the required number of points to complete the progress bar, you will have access to the next Chest. If you manage to get 4 Chests during 6:00AM and 5:59AM the next day, you will be eligible for a bigger Chest, which is more difficult to open, but it holds bigger and more interesting rewards. When you are close to an upgrade you will notice the progress bar changes its color to blue and specific requirements are displayed so you’ll always be in control.

PokerStars is also offering “Boosts” which increase the earning points rate twice. If you got a 20 point boost, the next 20 points you get will actually mean 40 points. Boosts are offered from time to time and you’ll know when you have the next opportunity by checking the boosts timer.



PokerStars.IT is offering a 100% up to €1000 welcome bonus, released in €5 portions, rakeback equivalent, valid for 90 days.

In order to get the welcome bonus you have to use the code “Bonus1000” when making your first real money deposit. You are allowed to make up to 2 valid deposits within 90 days and both will be taken into consideration for the welcome bonus. 

Please be aware that if after making a first deposit of less than €1000 you will request a withdrawal during the 90 days period of validity of the bonus, the subsequent potential deposit won’t be taken into consideration for the purposes of the welcome bonus.

Your welcome bonus will be released in €5 installments you will get for every 80 Points you receive. So, whatever the amount you deposit for getting welcome bonus, you need to earn 16 times the same amount in Points.

The bonus will appear in your Stars account as “Available” funds, which can be used for participating in any games but you are not allowed to withdraw this amount. Supposing you will win any prizes in the games you join using the bonus amount, these funds will be credited to your account and you will be allowed to withdraw them anytime.

PokerStars Italia has the standard rake structure the Italian poker networks apply, charging around 5.5% of pots. The difference between PokerStars and most other Italian networks is that the first has much lower caps in case of cash games, those varying between €1 and €3, depending on the game type and stakes played.

Rake is not charged if the hand is ended on the first betting round, which means before the flop in Texas Holdem or Omaha, before the 4th Street in Stud variants or before the Draw in Draw games.

In case of mixed games (8-Game, Round of Each, Mixed Holdem, Mixed Omaha Hi/Lo) where hands from different game types are played by rotation (Fixed Limit, No Limit, Pot Limit), the rake is collected based on the poker type played in each hand.

In the tables below you have the PokerStars.IT rake structure and the columns showing “Number of players” represents the number of players who are playing the hand and not the number of players seated at the table.
