Partypoker Ambassador Patrick Leonard hosts the new partypoker Diamond Club VIP Program. Partypoker are proud to launch the Diamond Club, the top VIP level for the new Cashback Loyalty Program. Last week new partypoker Chairman Mike Sexton outlined ten commitments he’d like to deliver for the poker community, including his aim to “reward players who start games and keep the action going”. The Diamond Club will do just this, rewarding its members with at least 50% rakeback plus other VIP bonuses.
To be eligible, players must commit to earning 100,000 points [$100,000] over a 12 month period across any poker game type including MTTs, Ring Games, Fast Forward, SNG HERO and STTs. Players will receive their normal weekly cashback every Monday into their online account with the additional cashback and VIP Bonuses being paid once players achieve the agreed 12 month points target. Should a player achieve their target in less than 12 months, the extra Diamond Club Cashback and benefits will be paid out as soon as the player reaches the points target. Diamond Club Members will also receive dedicated 24/7 Skype Customer Support from the Diamond Club team.
partypoker Ambassador Patrick Leonard will oversee the Diamond Club and also consult with players on improvements to the software and site’s products. Patrick commented: “I joined partypoker initially because management promised me that they would have the player’s best interests in mind and invest in the poker community and the Diamond Club will be an important part of this strategy.
Over recent years, I have unfortunately seen certain online poker sites punish regular players who start games and encourage predatory regulars to prey on amateur players and weaker players. The Diamond Club will reward regulars who start games and continue games and not reward these predatory regs who jump into a game for a small amount of time when they believe their win rate is sky high and sit out when the weaker player has gone broke.
I’ve seen a lot of people who don’t have a background in poker try and come up with ‘revolutionary’ ways to improve loyalty systems and not surprisingly, most of them have failed. Quite simply, those who want to support partypoker and make this their home for playing poker will be rewarded generously. Those who want to use partypoker to only prey on weaker players will not.”
Managing Director of partypoker Tom Waters said: “It’s important that we reward all our players. The Diamond Club comes as part of the roll-out of the new, significantly improved partypoker Cashback loyalty program. Having Patrick’s input in creating this VIP level in the new, rewarding rake-back scheme was imperative to ensure we got this right. We have listened and I’m sure that we are giving the players what they want.”
