One of the things that most players look for in an online poker site is the welcome bonus that’s offered. But for new players, it is important to understand that in order to avail yourself of this bonus; you need to properly identify and use the bonus code when you join and make your first deposit.

Sunshine Poker would like to provide new players, who want to join PokerStars and take advantage of their welcome bonus, with the bonus code you will need to acquire this special reward.

PokerStars Welcome Bonus Code

When you join PokerStars, you will receive a 100% bonus up to $600 on the first 3 deposits. To qualify for the bonus, you need to make a real money deposit and use the bonus code STARS600. Use this code for all 3 deposits within 90 days.

How Do I Receive the Bonus?

Once you’ve made your deposit, you earn the bonus by playing on PokerStars and collecting the number of VPPs (VIP Player Points) equal to 17 times the bonus amount. The bonus is released in $10 increments, each released into your account as you clear the needed VPPs (170 VPPs for every $10 increment). You have six months after your first deposit to earn all the VPPs needed.

Can You Give Me an Example of How This Works?

Let’s suppose you deposit $50 when you join PokerStars. You will receive $50 in pending bonus that will be released in $10 increments every time you earn 170 points in the next 6 months or until you reach the required points.

VPPs or VIP Player Points which count toward the bonus requirement begin with the first hand played after the deposit is made to your account. After the required number of points has been earned, the bonus will move from "pending status" into your PokerStars cash balance. PokerStars will send you an email confirming that the bonus funds have been moved to your cash account. The transaction will also be noted under ‘History’ in the Cashier window.

Now that you have the information on how to use the bonus code, join PokerStars today and get that $600 into your account!
